A final note:  This is NOT an official application for acceptance into graduate studies at the University of Kentucky. Rather it is simply an opportunity to get to know each other better, significantly more quickly and informally than through the formal application. The official application to grad school is still a requirement for formal acceptance into our program. Thanks for visiting, and we look forward to hearing from you.
