Thinking About Applying This Year?

If you're thinking about applying this year, now is the time to get your application materials together. If you've already started- kudos to you! We like early birds. Please keep in mind that we've moved from a rolling admissions policy this year to a Round decision process, and our deadlines have changed! Round One is fast approaching- get those applications in by October 15th.

So what should you be doing now?
  • Take the GMAT. Schedule a GMAT test date, prep for the GMAT, take the GMAT, and make sure to send us your score report!
  • Start filling out your application form. It's not hard, but it can take quite a bit of time to fill out the detailed online form. Do it a little at a time- you can save your work and come back another day.
  • Request your recommendations. You do this through the online application form. You can skip directly to the recommenders section, input your recommenders' info, and the system will send your recommenders a link to complete your recommendations online. Give them plenty of time to say good things about you!
  • Write your essays. Hastily put together essays read just that way: like they were thrown together at the last minute. Think about what you want to say and proofread, proofread, proofread!
  • Order your transcripts. You don't have to wait until you submit your application to send us your transcripts. We need TWO copies of all transcripts.

A quick word on "face time": We interview on an invitation only basis after submission of a complete application and a preliminary review by the Admissions Committee. We're delighted to answer any questions you may have about the application process, but we can usually do that over the phone or via email.

We look forward to learning all about you!
