Interviews and Visits

The GMAP Admissions Team encourages prospective students to schedule phone or Skype calls with the team at any point during the application process.  Moreover, prospective students visiting or residing in the Boston area are welcome to visit Fletcher and interview in person.  The GMAP Admissions Committee may also request an initial or additional Skype interview with an applicant after they have submitted their full application for admission to the program.

GMAP Deferral and Reapplication Policy


Admitted students wishing to defer admission to The Fletcher School must submit a written request to the Assistant Director of Admissions. Deferrals are granted on a case-by-case basis, normally for no more than one academic year. If a deferral is granted, a $2,500 deferral deposit is required. This deposit is applied to the following year's first term tuition payment.


Successful applicants who have not been able to accept a previous offer of admission, or applicants who were not offered admission, may reapply within a period of three years by submitting the items listed below.

  • GMAP Application form
  • Reapplication fee ($80)
  • One additional letter of recommendation
  • Updated Resume/CV
  • New responses to essay questions
  • New academic transcripts (if applicable)
  • Scholarship Aid Application (if applicable)

Every year, some individuals previously denied admissions are successful in the reapplication process. If your previous application was submitted more than three years ago, you must submit a new full application.  Please contact the GMAP Office for further information about the deferral and reapplication process.
