February 15 deadline is quickly approaching

Posted by Alison M. on Feb 11, 2014 1:28:13 PM

Our fourth application deadline is rapidly approaching, but you do still have a few more days to put the finishing touches on your application. This is the final deadline if you wish to be considered for merit-based funding, as we cannot guarantee that funding will be available to candidates who apply later in the cycle.

As a reminder, we will review your application once we have received all of your required application materials. You can expect to hear from us within 4-6 weeks of receiving a completed application. At this time, you will either receive an invitation to interview, a wait list decision or a deny decision. The status of your application will be kept up to date within the Apply Yourself application.

We look forward to reviewing your application!

Patience from applicants = happy admissions office

Posted by Rob C and Alison M on Dec 16, 2013 5:05:14 PM

As you might imagine, December is a bit busy here in the Fisher Graduate Programs Office. We have just passed a priority deadline and applicants are anxious to confirm that their materials have been received in time to be considered for admission and for financial aid.

Please keep in mind that there is manual work that has to be done to match your online application with the rest of your application materials, as it does not get updated in "real-time." Also note that it takes about 20 days from your test date for us to receive official GMAT scores (and longer if you're submitting GRE scores) and 13+ days from your test date to receive TOEFL scores.

Please wait at least five business days for your application checklist to be updated to reflect the status of your application materials received by our office.

Note, the Graduate Programs Office will be closed on Tuesday, December 24, Wednesday, December 25, and Wednesday, January 1.

We wish you a safe and happy holiday season and a happy new year!

New this year - GRE or GMAT accepted

Posted by Alison M. on Sep 10, 2013 11:56:27 AM

Beginning this year, the MBA program is accepting either the GRE or the GMAT to be considered for admission to the Full-Time MBA program. That being said, the GMAT is the only standardized test that was specifically designed to help predict success in core MBA classes. If you have not taken either test and you are debating about which one to take, we do prefer the GMAT. If, on the other hand, you have already taken the GRE, by all means feel free to submit those scores with your MBA application.
