Like any important decision, we like to consider our applicants in a careful, thoughtful manner. But giving us the time to read your application by applying early isn’t worth anything if your file is incomplete. We can’t begin reading an application until all of the supporting materials are submitted. It wouldn’t be fair to the applicants, and it wouldn’t give us a complete picture of the full talents our prospective students possess. Therefore, the earlier we receive a complete application via the common app, the sooner we can begin reviewing it, and the more time we’ll have for follow-up questions or clarifications. In short, a timely, complete application gives us the chance to give each applicant the attention they deserve, and produces the best results for everyone involved. So, if you’re thinking about applying to Bentley — and we hope you are — what are you waiting for?
