Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Do I have to attend both retreats on March 3rd and March 24th?


No. Each Team Leader attends only one of these retreats. When you are completing the application, please specify if you have a conflict with one of the dates. You are put in your group based on what date you can attend and the retreat is mandatory. If you mark a conflict with one of the dates, please give a reason for your conflict to be honored. Although the retreat is mandatory, if you have a conflict with both dates please list your reasons and your conflicts will be evaluated by the selection committee. No changes to retreat dates will be allowed after February 22nd at 5 pm.

  1. Does everyone who applies get an interview?

We have a limited number of interview spots that will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Although we will be accepting applications until February 1st at 5 pm, once all of the interviews are filled, no more will be added. You will have an opportunity to be placed on a “waitlist” and to attend an interview as a “stand-by” candidate, but we cannot guarantee you an official interview slot. Apply early!

  1. What if I do not have a printer to print off the application confirmation sheet?

The confirmation sheet will also be emailed to you. You must print off the confirmation sheet and bring it to the interview—use a campus computer or ask a friend!

  1. Am I able to change my application after I submit it?

No. Once the application is submitted it is final.

  1. Am I able to complete the application in parts?

No. If an application is not completed in one sitting, the application will be considered incomplete and tossed out electronically.

  1. Who do I contact if I have questions about my interview slot?

For questions regarding your interview, contact Interim Assistant Director of Student Success Alex Rodriguez at abrodrig@purdue.edu
