I also encourage you to attend one of our open houses, at which members of the faculty and staff are available to answer questions, lead tours of our building, and talk about financial aid and admission procedures. Next year, our open houses will be held on Sunday, October 12, 2014; Sunday, October 26, 2014; Sunday, November 9, 2014; and Monday, December 1, 2014. For more information about next year's open houses, please call 212.501.3019. We hope to see you at one of these!

To learn more about the the daily goings-on at the BGC, read my Dean's blog, Learning from Things: Behind the Scenes at the BGC. You can also follow BGC Admissions on Twitter.

Choosing a graduate school is a serious matter, but the process of admission should never be an ordeal. Please feel comfortable asking me any questions you may have as you go through the process.

The BGC hosts an Accepted Students Day each March. Accepted students are welcome to join us for a full day of information and classes and to meet BGC faculty and current students.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm wishes,

Elena Pinto Simon
Dean of Academic Administration and Student Affairs
