Gallatin School Approval
After your book list and rationale have been approved by your adviser, you should submit them both in a single word document to the Gallatin Advising office for final approval by a member of the Gallatin faculty. The faculty reviewer or “second reviewer” may approve the list and rationale or require changes. In either case, if you submitted your rationale on time, you will be notified by e-mail approximately 3-4 weeks after your initial submission.
If your rationale is approved with no revisions, you may begin planning for the colloquium immediately.
If minor revisions are required, you may begin planning for the colloquium. However, you should make the changes required by the faculty reviewer and return your revised draft of the rationale and booklist to Gallatin in advance of your colloquium.
If major revisions are required, you should discuss the reviewer’s comments with your adviser and revise the rationale and/or book list accordingly. The revised list and rationale must be re-submitted to your adviser for approval, and then re-submitted to Gallatin for final approval before you can begin planning for the colloquium.
