Graduate Application Support Program

Review Deadline Is Nov. 9, 2020

Graduate Application Support Program


A student-led team from the School of Computer Science is offering feedback to potential applicants, particularly those from underrepresented groups.


Connect with a student mentor and receive feedback on your application material. Your mentor might be able to help you with any questions concerning your application.


Historically, underrepresented groups have lacked access to guidance from people familiar with the application process. We are taking small steps to mitigate the problem by connecting such applicants with students at CMU and offering feedback on their applications.


You will receive feedback by Nov.16, 2020, at the latest.


Fill out this form before 23:59 p.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 9, 2020

Which programs?

We would like to match and offer feedback to as many applicants as possible. However, in the likely case of limited volunteers, we would prioritize applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Please apply early! For any queries, contact


This is an unofficial resource independent of the SCS Ph.D. applications. Please apply formally to the programs of your choice through the admissions webpage. For now, this effort is only for Ph.D. programs.
