Getting ready to apply for 2015? Here's what you need to do.

Posted by Rob C and Alison M on Aug 15, 2014 6:26:19 PM

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

We do not pre-evaluate candidates/potential applicants. It's not uncommon for us to receive the following question (or something like it): "My GMAT/GRE is XXX. My TOEFL is XXX. My GPA is XXX. What are my chances of being admitted?" The only way you can find out whether you will be admitted is to apply. If you wish to review statistics on the most recent class (e.g. GMAT or GRE average, GPA average, etc.), click here. The MHRM admissions committee reviews everything in an application to assess admissibility for each applicant. There is no single item that will cause someone to be admitted or be denied admission - everything is reviewed.

Here are some additional tips:

GMAT/GRE

You may submit either GRE or GMAT scores for your application. It's your choice. Also, it is very OK for you to submit your application prior to taking the GRE or GMAT. Just be sure you take the applicable test by the end of December 2014 to meet most "early" deadlines.

Transcripts

You will need to upload a scanned copy of an official transcript from each and every university (other than Ohio State) you have attended. Even if you just took a single class at a local community college, we will need to upload a scanned copy of an official transcript from that community college. (The upload button is built into the online application.)

You are NOT required to submit transcripts for any grades you earned at The 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.

The MHRM program also accepts IELTS from those applicants required to submit a test of English proficiency.

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!
