Once again I’ve been back in the office for a few days and it’s time to head out again. After attending the SHPE Conference in Cincinnati, I was in Raleigh-Durham, Charlotte, and Atlanta last week for Inside the MBA events. Being in the office for an entire week now has allowed me to catch up a bit, but now I’m off to Houston, Austin, and Dallas next week for some additional Inside the MBA events (along with good BBQ, steak, and Tex-Mex)! (I’m really excited about the food, in case you didn’t notice. It’s some of my favorite! Other suggestions welcome!)
Anyway, I wanted to provide you with some additional resources for learning more about the admissions process, diversity at Kelley, student activities, and life at the Kelley School. I would encourage you to check out our podcast series to learn more about these topics and others. You can even follow students around for a day in the myLife at Kelley series. These can be quite humorous and are some of my favorite! Enjoy!
Reminder and update from the Admissions Committee (for Consortium applicants ONLY): The early application deadline for students applying via the Consortium is November 15. Submit all of your materials directly to the Consortium and they will forward them onto the schools you have indicated on your application. Keep in mind that the school rankings within your application do not impact admissions or membership decisions; they are only utilized for awarding the Consortium Fellowship. You may only receive one Consortium Fellowship offer. The school you list first will have the first opportunity to offer you the Consortium Fellowship and so on down through your rankings. As a result, we encourage you to give careful thought and consideration to your school rankings. You should rank the schools in order of your true preferences so that you have the best chance of gaining the Consortium Fellowship at your most preferred school.
