APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:
TOP FAQs FROM APPLICANTS - PART 2
Last week we shared Part 1 of our Top FAQs from applicants, with great information on admissions events, connecting with students, and specific application requirements. Below is Part 2, with an additional 5 of our top FAQs that we have collected and compiled from questions we received by prospective applicants via e-mail, phone calls, and in person.
Q6. Can I submit updates to my application after I have submitted it?
A6. Unfortunately, we do not accept updates to the application once it has been submitted. If you do wish to add information after your application has been submitted, then your application will be moved to a later round for consideration.
Q7. Do you accept transfer students or credits from other MBA programs?
A7. No, we do not accept transfer students or credits from other MBA programs. We believe that part of the Anderson experience is developing relationships with classmates during the two years of attendance in the MBA program. You may still apply, but you would be required to begin as a first-year student. It may be possible to test out of some core courses to be replaced by MBA elective courses of your choice.
Q8. Is there a minimum GMAT/GRE score or GPA required for admission?
A8. No. Many factors are considered in the decision process. Admissions decisions are not made solely on the basis of grades and test scores. However, you may want to note our average and range of scores in our most recent class profile and ensure that your GMAT or GRE score (including Writing Assessment) represents your ability. If your score doesn't reflect your ability, we recommend that you consider retaking the test.
Q9. If I earned a three-year undergraduate degree, am I still eligible to apply?
A9. Yes, you are still welcome to apply. We do admit students with 3-year degrees but the rest of your application needs to be exceptionally strong to compete against other applicants. If you would like your academic records to equate to a 4-year degree, you would need to either complete a Master’s degree or other Post Graduate Degree/Diploma.
Q10. Can I begin the MBA program in the winter or spring?
A10. Unfortunately, we do not offer spring or winter admission. All students in the Full-Time MBA program start in the fall.
