The Final UW MSTP Secondary Application Deadline is Tomorrow!

Are you a procrastination pro? 
Are you also intending to apply to the UW MSTP? 
Well, then now is your time to SHINE! 

The final deadline to submit those UW MSTP secondary applications 
is fast approaching (in fact, it's TOMORROW!), 
so get those essays together and make sure to send us your stuff. 
We look forward to seeing some of you interviewing 
with us in the new year; it would be a real shame 
if you couldn't join us this cycle just because 
the deadline crept up without you knowing!
