If you have created an application account for the SMF program and have started working on your application, you have been using a system called Apply Yourself ("AY"). This screen shot should look familiar when you log in:
Okay, maybe the words, “deadly sins,” are a bit of an exaggeration; however, it is not uncommon for prospective students to make some mistakes when writing essays. The following is a list of blunders (countdown style) to avoid when writing an essay for the Fisher SMF program.
One of the best ways to learn about a program is to attend an information session. As many of our students in the current SMF class are NOT from Ohio State, we are hosting webinars (instead of on-campus information sessions) to allow prospective students to engage with us during their graduate school selection process.
The advantages of a webinar for all of you include being able to learn more about Ohio State without leaving your house, no costly travel expenses, and the ability to ask questions in an anonymous fashion.
SMF information sessions are LIVE (not recorded) which means you will get to interact with admissions directly.
When are these information sessions?
- Tuesday, October 25th at 7 p.m. EST
- Tuesday, December 6th at 6 p.m. EST
The Fisher SMF application for the 2012-2013 academic year is now live and available online.
Good news! The Admissions Committee will continue to accept qualified applicants for Fall '11. Why? First, we realize that our start date is later, so why should we follow the deadlines of the other schools? Second, SMF wants the best possible class and that could include you. It may be the case that you just recently took the GMAT or perhaps you had the realization that graduate school if you; whatever your reasoning is, you may have an opportunity to join the scarlet and gray!
As always, the earlier you apply, the better!
Just a friendly reminder that SMF applications are due in about a week!
