What it means to meet the deadline


We have noticed that lately we have reviewed a lot of applications that were technically submitted on the published deadline for winter term but did not become complete for almost a month afterwards.  We do not review your application to the WP MBA program until we have a complete application – that means your application form, your resume, your personal statement, your letters of recommendation, your transcripts and, if applicable, your GMAT or TOEFL scores.  Please know that it is your responsibility to ensure that these materials are received by our office in a timely manner so we can evaluate you for the term of your choice.  In the event that your application did not become complete in time for us to review it for the next available term, a couple of things may happen:

1) We can review your application and we may offer to defer your admission to the next available term

2) We will deny your application and ask you to reapply for the next available term

Our next available start date is for spring term – March 26, 2012.  This is the last time we will offer admission on a quarter schedule.  After spring, our next enrollment term is Fall semester 2012, which begins August 22, 2012.

We look forward to receiving your application!


Application deadline tomorrow for Winter 2012

Aarrggh. Look at all this mail from MBA applicants! I am going to be here all night!


“I mailed my transcripts last week, did you get them?”

About two weeks before major deadlines, the Fisher MBA application office becomes inundated with transcripts, GMAT scores, and applications. The staff is working tirelessly to make sure applications are complete for review.

If you have e-mailed us and we have not returned your e-mail, please note that the MBA email inbox is steeped with requests about whether or not application materials have been received. Additionally, please note that it can take a few weeks for the staff members to update your status, especially as the holidays approach.  The best way to keep up with your application is to check your ApplyYourself account (read this blog post for a refresher) and not ask the admissions office if your items have been received.

Remember, we process applications on a rolling basis and we will review your application as soon as your file becomes complete.  If you don’t submit a completed application by the deadline, there is a chance we will have to consider you for a future enrollment term – if this is the case, we will let you know upon reviewing your completed application.

Good luck!
