Lottery Procedure:

If demand exceeds open seats, a blind lottery is held one week after the application deadline. Student test scores, grades, or special needs are not used in any way as part of the admissions process or lottery. The lottery is open to the public and conducted by drawing participants’ names from a rolling bin. Enrollment is offered to the first names drawn, until all enrollment spots are filled.  Waitlist numbers are assigned in the same manner until all names have been pulled from the bin. Any applications received incomplete or after the deadline are added to the end of the waitlist in the order they were received.
