In this new weekly series, we provide a brief rundown of what we know is happening in the week ahead, as far as admissions related MBA deadlines and decisions are concerned at the top business schools.
In terms of MBA admissions deadlines, the USC Marshall School of Business Round 1 deadline is today, Monday October 19 at 11:59 PST. It is the final Round 1 deadline of the programs which we cover. Cambridge Judge Business School’s MBA Program already has a Round 2 deadline on Friday, October 23.
London Business School is scheduled to roll out interview invites on Wednesday, October 21. INSEAD’s interview decision notification date is on Friday, October 23. UCLA Anderson School of Management is also sending out interview invitations, according to LiveWire (and their own blog), along with CMU Tepper School of Business, and Georgetown McDonough School of Business.
It is very likely that Emory Goizueta Business School, MIT Sloan School of Management and Stanford Graduate School of Business will start releasing interview invites sometime early this week. Both schools have communicated that interview decisions will be released beginning in mid-October. Sloan’s interview period begins on Monday of next week.
Both Harvard Business School and U. Chicago Booth rolled out interview invites and deny decisions (without interviews) last week for Round 1 candidates. Both releases were heavily reported on MBA LiveWire.
For those of you hearing from schools this week, applying to schools, or simply wanting to get the latest “buzz” in terms of what is going on, check out MBA LiveWire to stay on top of real-time MBA admissions decisions.
That’s all for this week! Good luck to everyone!
