About Rush University
Applicants who consider themselves to have special or unique qualities that make them strong candidates for graduate education are also encouraged to apply. Research and related job experience are valued highly in the admissions process and will be taken into account. Interviews with applicants are encouraged and can play a significant part in the admission decision. Beyond those measures, the faculty attempts to determine the applicant's motivation and potential for advanced study and a research career in the sciences. In many cases, an on campus interview will be required.

Once the Graduate College admissions office has received all required documents, including the applications fee, it forwards the application to the division for review. If the divisions does not with to offer admission to the applicant, the division makes that recommendation to the dean, who notifies the applicant of the decision. If an applicant meets all the college and division admission criteria and the division agrees to admit the student, the admissions office is notified and the dean writes to the applicant. If an applicant does not meet the college criteria as outlined above but the division wishes to admit the student, the applicant's admission materials are sent to the members of The Graduate College Council, where a review of the applicant takes place and an agreement to accept or reject is made following a presentation of the candidate to the Council by the division. The dean then notifies the applicant of the Council's decision.
