THE ADMISSIONS TRAJECTORY:

We see this interview as the hopeful beginning of a fruitful and perhaps ongoing dialogue between DAI and you, prospective member of our student body, and our wider community. We will not only have questions for you to respond to, but would like to offer you the opportunity to bring up your own questions (as far as they have not been answered by our website) about the DAI's ways of studying and living together, as well.
AFTER THE ADMISSIONS TRAJECTORY:
In general, the outcome of the admissions trajectory will be communicated within 6-8 weeks (depending on the number of applications that have to be processed).
