Fall 2011 Application Available

To those of you who have anxiously been awaiting the availability of the Fall 2011 application for the Full-Time MBA program, thank you for your patience. I'm happy to announce that the application is now available. You'll notice a few changes right away.

No more sending transcripts or test scores. You will now be prompted to upload electronic copies of your transcripts and self-report your test scores. No official documents will be required until after acceptance. This way, you know when you submit your application that we have those items. No more waiting to see when your transcripts or test scores reach our office.

We now accept the GRE. You may choose to submit GRE results instead of GMAT results if you wish or in addition to GMAT results if you've taken both.

Essay questions have changed. We now have two required essays (rather than three), and you have up to 750 words to answer each. You may still submit a third, optional essay if you wish. This year's essay questions are:

Essay One: What are your short-term and long-term career goals? What position would you like to obtain immediately after completing your MBA? How has your work experience to date prepared you for that role? What steps will you take during your time in the MBA program to increase the likelihood of successfully achieving your short-term career goal? Why is this career path meaningful to you? (750 words maximum, please double space.)

Essay Two: Write about a time when you had a significant misunderstanding with someone from a different background or culture. (750 words maximum, please double space.)

As always, please contact us if you have questions. We can be reached by phone at (706) 542-5671 or via email at terrymba@uga.edu. We look forwarding to learning more about you!

Thanks for your share! I think this information is helpful for everyone. I'm doing practice GMAT here: gmatonlinetest.com . I hope it's useful for GMAT test takers.
