With about a week to go until the 2010-2011 MBA application goes live at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, admissions director Soojin Kwon Koh had some news to share Tuesday on the Ross Admissions Blog.
What’s the latest? Ross will begin accepting the GRE in addition to the GMAT starting this year, as well as the IELTS in addition to the TOEFL. Also new this year is that interview invitations will go out in two batches each round rather than on a rolling basis, Soojin writes, promising more details about the process as the time approaches.
Meanwhile, Soojin says almost half of Ross’s incoming students are traveling with classmates on MTreks across the U.S., Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe, or have come to campus to take optional pre-term courses before classes officially start on September 7th.
The campus visit program at Ross will start in mid-September, and the director highly encourages applicants to visit, if possible. “Visits bring to life, confirm or invalidate what you might’ve learned about schools through other sources,” she says, suggesting that prospective students may want to time a visit in conjunction with one of the many events taking place this fall, such as the Annual Net Impact Conference in October.
If you haven’t seen them yet, the full-time MBA essay questions and recommender questions are already available. We’ll keep you posted when the application goes live, and when Stacy Blackman’s essay tips for Ross School of Business become available.
