Is your application incomplete for letters of recommendation?

Posted by Alison M. on May 22, 2012 1:59:15 PM

When you fill out your application for the MBA program, you have the opportunity to enter the names of up to three individuals who can serve as references on your behalf. Once you enter the names and email addresses of these individuals in the online system, they will receive the request to complete an online recommendation form for you. You are only required to submit two letters of reference, yet if you indicate the names of three references, your application will technically remain incomplete until we receive all three letters of recommendation. Please make sure that the references you have identified are prepared to write letters on your behalf before you submit your names through the online sysem. In order to expedite the review of your application, please reach out to your references to encourage them to complete the process. You will be able to tell if the letters have been submitted by your references by viewing your application status/check-list. While we are able to conduct an initial review of your application, we are unable to make a final decision until your letters of recommendation come in.

When you get to the recommendation screen in the application, it should look like this:









As a reminder, recommendations should be provided from employers, supervisors, professors, or others who are able to comment on your professional and educational goals and potential (no friends or relatives please.)
