In this 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.
Interview invites for Round 2 applicants continue to roll out for many of the schools we cover, as reported on MBA LiveWire. Last week we saw multiple invites for schools including Berkeley / Haas, NYU / Stern, Stanford GSB, UVA / Darden, and Yale SOM; MIT / Sloan began to invite candidates late in the week.
This upcoming week interview invites will continue to roll out, although the focus for many schools now is the interview itself. A few schools also have Round 3 and 4 application deadlines.
Monday, February 22, Cambridge / Judge will host the first of its two interview days for Round 3 candidates. Final decisions for those candidates are scheduled for a few days later. Notre Dame / Mendoza has a Round 3 deadline.
Tuesday, February 23, IESE has a Round 3 deadline.
Wednesday, February 24, INSEAD has a Round 4 deadline.
Thursday, February 25, London Business School has its Round 3 deadline.
Friday, February 26, Notre Dame / Mendoza is scheduled to release final decisions for its Round 2 candidates.
Saturday, February 27, Northwestern / Kellogg Round 2 candidates should have completed their interviews.
Sunday, February 28, the Round 1 deposit for Michigan / Ross is due.
