GMAT, GRE, standardized tests, oh my!

Posted by Alison M. on Sep 23, 2014 1:57:25 PM

I know, I know - the thought of taking a standardized test after years of being away from the classroom can certainly be daunting. One of the responsibilities of the admissions team is to evaluate whether a candidate (YOU) has the academic aptitude that is required to complete the rigorous coursework in the MBA program. Many times an undergraduate academic record is not the best indicator or predictor of success in the MBA classroom - you may have graduated college without ever taking a math class, for example. Or, perhaps your grades in quantitative courses were sub-par because you were working to pay for school and couldn't put in as much studying time as you would have liked OR you were a college athlete OR you were just less motivated and mature than you are today (we have never heard anyone claim that one :) ). That is where the GMAT or the GRE can come to the rescue.

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.
