How to Apply Step-by-Step

  1. Apply online.
    Apply online before you do anything else.
  2. Schedule to take the GMAT.
    Don't procrastinate! Go to www.mba.com and schedule to take your GMAT exam. You may also see if you qualify for a GMAT waiver.
  3. Request your transcripts ASAP.
    Request copies of your official transcripts as soon as possible. It can take time to print, prepare, and mail your undergraduate transcripts to the MBA Admission Office. We only need one original transcript from each university you attended.
  4. Give your recommenders at least two weeks to write your letters of recommendation.
    Give those individuals who are writing your letters of recommendation at least two weeks to complete the task. This allows them to take their time and craft an excellent letter of recommendation. Make sure the person puts the letter in a sealed envelope with his/her signature over the back flap.
  5. Prepare and submit your resume.
    Your resume can be emailed or mailed to the address below (step 7).
  6. Write your Personal Statement.
    Your personal statement is important. Take your time writing it. Tell us why you are seeking an MBA. Tell us about your short and long term goals. Tell us why you will be a successful graduate student. Keep the statement to 1,000 words or less. Proof your essay to correct spelling and grammatical errors. You can submit your essay with your online application or submit it at a later time.
