MBA Application Review and Notification Process

As I mentioned in my last post, we're in the "peak season" for interviews and application review. While it may be a relief to have your application completed and submitted, we know the anxiety of waiting to hear back on your application status can be difficult so I would like to provide some insight into our process.

First and foremost, unfortunately it is not possible to check the status of your application. If any further information is needed, we will contact you via email.

Secondly, many candidates are anxious to interview. Remember from my last post that admissions interviews are not required. While not all applicants will interview, an invitation to interview may occur at any point in the process. Invitations to interview are sent on an ongoing basis throughout the review process.

Lastly, we publish our admissions timeline so that you can know when to expect a decision. This timeline is accurate and you should not expect a decision earlier. We do not offer rolling admission. Our admissions decisions are released via email as published.

I hope this helps to understand a bit more of the review and notification process. The admissions committee is working diligently to review applications in a timely fashion but also wants to be sure each individual application is given the appropriate amount of time to get to know each candidate. In fact, each application may be reviewed individually at least 3-4 times before a final decision is made. We appreciate your patience!!

  1. Brad,
    Thanks for the insight into the admissions process! As the notification date is approaching, will the admissions team release a more precise notification date. For example, for the Round 2 notifications, will an exact date in March be given or will only the approximate "mid-March" time frame be given? Any additional info is helpful, especially for students weighing options and deadlines. Thanks!

  2. Hi Andrew,
    Thank you for following and reading. There is not an exact date that decisions will be released. However, I can tell you that decisions will be released in several small batches over the next 2-3 weeks. If you have more specific questions, feel free to contact me directly!

  3. We are rather of the firm opinion and view and hopefully the respective ideas would help students in determining all those essentials which are even considered to be important. phd in cancer research
