The Arizona State University MSF program has made a few changes and I thought it would be a good time to post an update for anyone who is considering applying. The ASU program has been around for a while now and it is one of the programs I routinely get asked about. I’ll reach out and also try and get a student review as I believe I do not currently have one for this program. More to follow.
- Avg. GPA – 3.47

The Arizona State University admissions staff will be traveling this summer in a variety of cities in case anyone would like to meet with and speak to someone in person. I find that this is a great way to show interest and get a feel for the program.
- Los Angeles, CA – July 15, 2017 – 9:00am to 5:00pm
- San Francisco, CA – July 16, 2017 – 11:00am to 5:00pm
- Houston, TX – July 18, 2017 – 5:00pm to 9:30pm

Another nice thing that I think Arizona State does is provide current, first year students as ambassadors of the program. Prospective applications can request to speak with an ambassador so that you can get questions answered by someone who is actually in the program and who went through the same process and decision making that you are currently experiencing.
The current ambassadors all have a pretty diverse background. Of the four, one is a woman, one is a domestic student, and three are international, but all come from different parts of the world (India, Azerbaijan and Germany). The school updated these ambassadors every year, but if you’d like to look at who the current ones are you can find them here.
I am going to reach out to the school and see if I can get an updated student review as well as some placement information. I think both would be helpful and much appreciated. Stay tuned!
