Soojin Kwon Koh, admissions director at the Michigan MBA program, recently updated her blog with some stats on Round 1 applications–candidates applied from more than 40 countries!–and the news that the first group of Round 1 interview invites went out on Monday, October 25th.
Invited applicants have three weeks to complete their interview, and the second batch of invites goes out November 12th, Soojin explains, adding that the Michigan MBA program is looking to build an incoming class of about 490 students.
Interviews give prospective students the opportunity to share their unique story, goals and interests with admissions–and allow you to learn more about the program for which you are applying.
If you’re gearing up to apply in Round 2, one great way to prepare is by attending the next Preview Day on Friday, November 12th. “I will be walking through how the Admissions Committee looks at an application and engage the group in a discussion of an essay or two,” says Soojin.
“Fall is a great time of year to visit Ann Arbor! The leaves outside my window are glorious shades of orange, yellow and red,” says the director, who assures that there’s still time to register.
Those who can’t make it to Preview Day may want to listen to a Forte webinar Soojin moderated that features application advice from several admissions directors. “We discussed such topics as how to ‘tell your story,’ how to showcase your leadership ability, and how to prepare for the interview,” she explains.
