ISM Admissions on the Road!

Admissions, Yale Divinity School, Yale School of Music

Greetings, and happy October!

With the fall season officially upon us, and a new academic year in full swing, it’s now time to start thinking about Admissions season here at the ISM!  The deadline for application to our music programs is December 1, 2015; the deadline for application to our divinity programs is February 1, 2016.   But if you’re thinking about graduate school, it’s never too soon to start your application!

If you’re considering applying, it also doesn’t hurt to speak with an actual person about the various programs of study available at the ISM.  Websites and brochures can say a lot about a place, but nothing compares to an in-person conversation.  To that end, there will be quite a few opportunities in the near future for you talk with a real person about the ISM!  We will be recruiting at various colleges and universities in the Midwest over the next two weeks (see full schedule below).  And to top it all off,  we will be helping to host the Yale Divinity School Open House on November 5, 2015.  The YDS Open House is a great way to visit campus, meet with other prospective students, attend a class, and worship in Marquand Chapel.  Registration is free–we’d love to see you there!

We are looking forward to our upcoming campus visits.  If you’re currently attending one of these schools, make sure to stop by and say hello while we’re there! And as always, if you have questions about your application, or want more information about the ISM, feel free to send an email to  Stay tuned for more student posts, alumni interviews, and a look at what some of our students were up to this summer!
