Overall, your personal statement should address the following questions:
- What are your academic and career goals?
- How will completing this program help you meet your academic/career goals?
- What is your current understanding of the intersections between business, law and biomedical science?
- Are there any potential red flags in your application that you would like to further address?

Does not admit.
A conferred bachelor's degree is the only requirement for applicants interested in applying for the master's program.
Our admissions committee reviews each candidate’s entire application and weighs each piece equally, which we call a holistic review. We don’t eliminate applicants based solely on test scores or GPA. Students with lower GPAs can bolster their application by using their personal statement to explain why they earned the grades they did, including a resume that describes relevant work experience and having stellar recommendation letters.
Because each application undergoes a holistic review, we do not have required minimums.
The average scores for previously accepted masters students are as follows:
|Cumulative Undergraduate GPA||3.32|
