Prospective Students Visit Bush School

February 20, 2009

More than 137 prospective students from 27 states as well as Korea, Canada and Mexico have been invited to attend interview conferences at the Bush School of Government and Public Service on February 20 and 21 and February 27 and 28.  Sixty-two students are being considered for the master’s program in public service and administration (MPSA) while 75 students will be interviewing for the master’s program in international affairs (MPIA).

The interview conferences enable the School’s Admissions Committees to learn more about the prospective students, while at the same time, the students gain a better understanding of the Bush School experience. Among the weekend’s scheduled activities are an overview of the School, academic program interviews and assessments, campus and community tours, and opportunities to interact informally with current students, faculty and staff.

Executive Associate Dean Sam Kirkpatrick noted that demand for Bush School programs has grown dramatically.

“We believe the interview process to be an important step for students considering our graduate programs,” Kirkpatrick said. “Some students are unable to come to the campus, but those who do gain a better understanding of the School’s academic offerings and life on campus and in the community,” he added.
