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 have been released, for the most part at this stage. Last week saw a number of invites for MIT Sloan, while Stanford GSB released those it was no longer considering for admissions, as reported on MBA LiveWire.
This upcoming week we will likely see a few more interview invites, although the focus for most schools now is the interview itself. A few schools have application deadlines and nine schools are scheduled to release final decisions for earlier rounds.
Tuesday, March 15, CMU / Tepper has a Round 3 application deadline, NYU / Stern has a Round 4 deadline. Duke / Fuqua is scheduled to release its final decisions for Round 2. Cornell / Johnson is scheduled to release its Round 3 final decisions. IU / Kelley is scheduled to release final decisions for its Priority Round.
Wednesday, March 16, US News is set to release its annual MBA ranking. Michigan / Ross will begin contacting admits for Round 2.
Sunday, March 20, Georgetown / McDonough is scheduled to release its Round 2 final decisions.
