You may have noticed that either the new website looks exactly like the old one, or we weren’t able to launch phase 1 in February as previously announced.

It's the latter, of course. After running into more technical issues than expected, which added a few weeks to the timeline, we faced bumping up against the peak yield season for Admissions. To be cautious, we’ve decided to postpone the launch until after the May 1 response deadline for admitted students in order to avoid creating any confusion at a time when these students need to find information quickly to help with their decision.

Meanwhile, the webteam continues to migrate content and develop features for the new site. The later date will allow us to include more content and features in the phase 1 launch than we had anticipated. 

Thanks for your patience! If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call.
