Here’s your checklist for applying

Posted by Rob C and Alison M on Aug 24, 2010 1:35:01 PM

When you are preparing your application for any of the Fisher PhD programs, please refer to the checklist of required items. Remember that the admissions committee will only review complete applications.

Here are some additional tips:

GMAT/GRE

It is very OK for you to submit your application prior to taking the GMAT or GRE. (If you are applying to the accounting PhD program, you must submit official GMAT scores.) Just be sure you take the GMAT/GRE by December 15, 2010 to meet the PhD program application deadline.

Transcripts

We need two official transcripts from each and every university you have attended. Even if you just took a single class at a local community college, we will need two official transcripts from that community college. Be sure to send them to the correct address:

PhD ADMISSIONS
Fisher College of Business
100 Gerlach Hall
2108 Neil Ave
Columbus OH 43210-1144

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

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!

Here's your checklist for applying

Posted by Rob C and Alison M on Aug 24, 2010 12:53:10 PM

When you are preparing your application for the Fisher Master of Accounting program, please refer to the checklist 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 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 current class (e.g. GMAT average, etc.), click here. The MAcc 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

It is very OK for you to submit your application prior to taking the GMAT. Just be sure you take the GMAT by the end of December 2010 to meet most "early" deadlines.

Transcripts

We need two official transcripts from each and every university you have attended. Even if you just took a single class at a local community college, we will need two official transcripts from that community college. Be sure to send them to the correct address:

MACC ADMISSIONS
Fisher College of Business
100 Gerlach Hall
2108 Neil Ave
Columbus OH 43210-1144

You are NOT required to submit transcripts for any grades you earned at Ohio State University.

Note that if you earned a degree from outside the United States, you are required to have a course-by-course evaluation by an approved evaluator. Currently, the Fisher MAcc program accepts course-by-course evaluations from either WES or ECE.

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.
