iPad to Streamline MBA Admissions at MIT Sloan
The Apple iPad will revolutionize the MBA admissions process at MIT Sloan School of Management starting with the class of 2013, when all applications will be reviewed on the tablet device rather than on paper.
Rod Garcia, director of MBA admissions, tells the Wall Street Journal that all 15 members of the admissions team have received iPads at cost of about $9,500, and the move will save the school approximately $10,000 annually in paper costs.
The iPads should also streamline admissions, Garcia predicts, since paper applications were often misplaced or needed to be shipped to admissions staffers who travel worldwide to interview applicants.
