Fall is here, but you would think it's still summer in LA with the record heat wave we've experienced the past several days! Fortunately it should be cooling down later this week, with a chance for some much needed rain in the forecast.
Fall also marks the official start of our application evaluation season, starting with our Round 1 applicants. It's been a week since the Round 1 deadline and the admissions committee has already been quite busy reading and evaluating files for the Class of 2018. This year we scooted up the application deadline and subsequent decision release day, so Round 1 applicants will hear back from us no later than December 15th.
Interview invitations are starting to go out this week and the vast majority of interviews will take place starting next week through mid-November. Don't forget to check out our blog post with interview tips to help you prepare!
One of the top questions we receive from applicants is how to visit campus, and I'm happy to share that signing up for a Campus Experience is easier than ever! We expanded the options available for for visitors, and depending on the choices available the day you plan to visit, you can choose from Group Info Sessions, class visits, school tours, coffee chats and lunches with current students. We also recently launched The MBA Experience app for iPhones and Androids, which you can download at anytime. Should you decide to interview on campus, consider tying in one or more of these activities to learn more about our culture.
