regularly get asked if it's too early to start working on an application for
admissions into our programs. Every summer we review our applications and make
changes. This typically involves new essay questions, and slightly different
information in the application itself. Right now we are working to finalize
those changes for Fall 2010. We recognize that many of you want to get a head
start on your application and get a feel for all the things that have to come
together to get you admitted into the program.
recommend looking over the application, reading through the essay questions,
and start thinking about how you would answer those questions. Think about who
you would like to use as your professional recommendations, and about your
resume and if it needs any updates. Think about where you need to go to request
your official transcript(s) and about how much prep time you will need to study
for the GMAT.
give yourself a head start on the application, you will be that much more
prepared to submit it when the deadline arrives.
to the Carlson School of Management's Admissions Blog. This blog will
serve to inform you of relevant ...too formal. I've been told that this
blog will be written in a manner less formal than a web page or official school
letter. So let me begin again.
You found it! The new Carlson Admissions blog. If you found this
blog, you probably know what a blog is and don't need to be told its
purpose. So what's this blog about?
We, the Admissions team, will be writing blog posts regarding our recruiting
activities, most commonly asked questions and perhaps other tidbits you may not
know. So this is really a content driven
effort to address items relating to admissions and recruiting. We'll be
self promoting too, i.e. our Twitter account, Facebook fan pages. Good
stuff, I promise.
As this is an introduction, I should continue the theme and describe the
"We" in the paragraph above. Who are the Admission people? What
are they like? As one functioning unit, we work very well
together. Operations makes up one group within the department, recruiting
the other. Some serve in both capacities. So what you have here are
people making sure that the admissions process runs smoothly, such as the
online application, constant reporting, database development, and another
focused on building and maintaining relationships with our MBA candidates,
evaluating and voting on applications, planning and implementing recruitment
events. And we have no silos here, meaning one team manages all 3 MBA
options, Executive, Full-Time, Part-Time.
Individually, we have a down to earth, well rounded, academically diverse group
of people making admissions decisions. One is a pretty good tennis
player, another sings with her office door closed and is really quite good, one
loves jazz and is surprisingly proficient at Dance Dance Revolution, another
gardens and pridefully maintains herbs and tomatoes, one is an Olympic caliber
swimmer and the tallest person in the office, another loves dogs and has
decades of institutional knowledge, one makes awesome creme brulee french
toast, another is short, short, short but full of life (literally) and one is
head over heels in love with (html) style, colors and fonts.
When all is said and done, this group is very approachable and happy to speak
to anyone that is interested in being a student in one of our MBA
programs. You'll see differing styles from each of our contributors but
all singularly focused on admitting the best students anywhere.
