Quick application checklist

Since we process applications on a rolling admissions basis, it is always advantageous to apply early – as applications are submitted and become complete, we will review them and make admissions decisions. The application is now live for both spring semester (January 2015 start) and autumn semester (August 2015 start).  The deadline to apply for the January start is October 15, so you still have plenty of time to get ready.

Here is your quick checklist:

1) Request an official copy of any transcript you have from an undergraduate or graduate institution where you received any credit.  A scanned or electronic copy of an official transcript is all you need to submit for application review purposes.

2) Register to take the GMAT or the GRE.  The GMAT is still our preferred test for the MBA program if you have not yet taken either test; however, we will accept the GRE and you will not be at any disadvantage if you choose to take the GRE.  You may be able to waive out of the test if you meet certain requirements.

3) Request individuals to serve as your references.  We require TWO letters of recommendation.  We prefer letters of recommendation from current or previous supervisors, followed by letters from colleagues, clients, professors, or anyone you may work with on a professional board or community organization.

4) Update your resume.

5) Start thinking about and drafting your personal statement and completing your video essay.

6) International students only – register for the TOEFL or IELTS.
