Admissions decisions = a branch of holism

We are often asked about statistics that describe the current MAcc class. We have calculated the statistics that represent the Fisher MAcc class of 2013. Click here for the class profile statistics.

Please know that this data is aggregated – it is a summary of over 80 students currently enrolled in the program. No single applicant looks the same. The admissions committee looks at everything in each applicant’s file – no one will be denied or admitted on a single criterion (e.g. GMAT, GPA, etc.). A high GMAT does not guarantee admission nor will a “low” GMAT necessarily prevent someone from being admitted into the program. The same is true for GPA. The admissions committee looks at everything – in other words, the committee is most concerned how your credentials (references, essays, transcripts, GMAT, resume), taken together, present a complete picture of you as a potential student in this program. We are not concerned so much with the individual components – individual components, by themselves, are not indicative of an applicant’s strengths. We are more concerned with how all of these individual components, taken together, comprise a complete picture of the applicant.

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts
