Announcement – the 2014 application is now available!

The Fisher MHRM application for the 2014-2015 academic year is now live and available online.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply early – your chances of earning admission and merit-based financial aid are best at the beginning of the application cycle, all else being equal.

Deadlines for autumn 2014 are listed below:

DOMESTIC APPLICANTS (U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents)

December 6 - Fellowship/priority funding deadline

May 30* - Final deadline
*Complete applications received after this date will be reviewed on space available basis.

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

November 15 - Fellowship/priority funding deadline

March 7 - Final deadline

Over the next few months, please check back on this blog – perhaps bookmark it or add it to your RSS feed. I will post information that may help you as you prepare to submit your application. If you have any questions, please leave a comment or contact us (contact information is posted here).

Enjoy the rest of your summer in the meantime!

There are a few more weeks of summer left this year. Enjoy them!


Here’s your checklist for applying

When you are preparing your application for the Fisher Master of Labor & Human Resources  program, please refer to the checklist of required items. Remember that the admissions committee will only review complete applications.

Here are some additional tips:

GRE/GMAT

It is very OK for you to submit your application prior to taking the GRE or GMAT. Just be sure you take the GRE or GMAT by the end of December 2010 to meet most “early” deadlines.

Transcripts

We need two official transcripts from each and every university you have attended. Even if you just took a single class at a local community college, we will need two official transcripts from that community college. Be sure to send them to the correct address:

MLHR ADMISSIONS
Fisher College of Business
100 Gerlach Hall
2108 Neil Ave
Columbus OH 43210-1144

Note: You are NOT required to submit transcripts for any grades you earned at Ohio State University.

TOEFL

I plan on writing another blog post on issues involving the TOEFL but if you are required to submit the TOEFL as part of a complete application, be sure you use the correct institution code for Ohio State University (1592) and that you allow PLENTY of time for the scores to get to us. The TOEFL is regularly the one item that seems to take forever to get to us – if you need to submit the TOEFL, it is your responsibility to ensure the test administrator (ETS) sends us your official TOEFL scores.

References

Your references can be sent to us electronically or via paper. (Additional instructions are in the application on the difference between the two formats.) Note that we will receive your references sooner if you choose electronic. Just be sure to give your recommenders plenty of time to write your references!

Essays

Give yourself enough time to write essays that really reflect you. Do not write generic, plain vanilla essays. Answer the questions that are posed to you in this application. Do not recycle essay responses you are using for any other applications.

We will be posting additional tips for each of the items referenced above throughout the next few months so keep an eye on this blog for updates.

If you have any questions, please let us know!


Welcome, autumn 2011 applicants

It’s that time of year again:  the autumn 2011 Fisher/Ohio State MLHR application is now available.  Plan ahead so that all of your application materials arrive by the applicable deadline:

  • International application deadline (fellowship/financial aid consideration)
    • November 15
  • Domestic application deadline (fellowship/financial aid consideration)
    • December 31
  • Final application deadline for international applicants
    • March 1
  • Final application deadline for domestic applicants
    • May 1
      • Applications will be accepted from qualified domestic applicants after May 1 on space available basis; however, applications submitted earlier get more consideration than those submitted later.

We often receive questions on what “domestic” and “international” means. Domestic applicants are those who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. International applicants are everyone else.

I recommend that you review the Fisher MLHR web site carefully and visit this admissions blog on a regular basis to stay updated on the application process and informed about the Fisher MLHR program. Don’t be afraid to post your questions and comments on the blog. If you have a question, most likely several other applicants are wondering the exact same thing!
