Chicago to Change Admissions Process [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2014, 15:00
Expert's post
FROM Aringo Blog: Chicago to Change Admissions Process
An article on the site Poets & Quants reports that Chicago Booth plans a change as of the 2014-2015 season: candidates’ applications will only be read by admissions committee members and not by the program’s students. The school explained that the change is intended to allow the students to better utilize their time and to allow greater consistency in the screening process of the almost 4,500 applications each year.

Till now, the applications were read by 42 second-year students who were named Admissions Fellows, chosen based on their involvement in school events. At the peak of the season, each student would receive 10-12 applications, and then rank six different parts of the application with a score of 1-6: GRE/GMAT and TOEFL scores, quality of academic background, employment experience, social and community involvement with an emphasis on leadership, essays, and recommendations. The reader would then assign the application a general score and an additional score for the candidate’s fit to the school.

Expert's post
FROM Aringo Blog: The Economist's Ranking of the Top North American Programs
The Economist published its ranking of the 20 top MBA programs in North America taken from its global ranking for 2013. All 20 programs are found within the top 31 in the world, with 19 in the U.S. and 1 in Canada.

The Economist explains the U.S. domination of the ranking as stemming mainly from the schools’ financial power, manifested in top faculty and beautiful campuses, and that they excel in placement services that help alumni integrate successfully into the work force.

The list:
1- Chicago Booth
2- Tuck
3- Berkeley Haas
4- Darden
5- Harvard
6- NYU Stern
7- Stanford
8- Columbia
9- MIT Sloan

Increase in Applications to Top U.S. MBA Programs [#permalink] New post 25 Jun 2014, 23:00
Expert's post
FROM Aringo Blog: Increase in Applications to Top U.S. MBA Programs
An article published by the Wall Street Journal reports an increase in the number of applications to the top U.S. MBA programs from last year. The data show that Harvard recorded a relatively high 9,543 applications to its MBA program beginning in 2014, an increase of 2.4% since last year. Berkeleylisted an increase of 3.7% and Duke showed a significant increase of 9.6% in its number of applications.

The increase in applications is explained by a number of factors. First, the improvement in the economy gives applicants the confidence that they will succeed in finding a job upon graduation. Second, schools are investing effort in marketing to and recruiting candidates from around the world. This  combined with a slightly easier application process in recent years lead to an increase in applicants. For example, UNC efforts to recruit international applicants and emphasizes to them the school’s exceptional employment data for its international students. The school showed an increase of 44% in the number of applications from outside the U.S., which accounted for more than half of its overall applications and contributed to an overall increase of 28% in applications. There are a number of schools that did not report an increase- Dardenand Yaleshowed decreases in the number of applications for this year.

It is important to note that while a higher number of applications is flattering to a school and helps it appear more selective, it also makes it harder for the program to predict which of the accepted applicants will actually matriculate. This affects the school’s yield data, critical to a school’s prestige. A number of programs aim to solve this problem by offering scholarships to accepted candidates.

In addition to recruitment efforts, MBA programs have been making the application process simpler, requiring less essays and recommendations.

Some UK Business Schools Reject the TOEFL [#permalink] New post 26 Jun 2014, 02:00
Expert's post
FROM Aringo Blog: Some UK Business Schools Reject the TOEFL
Anarticle on the site Poets & Quants reports that a number of UK business schools no longer accept the TOEFL exam as evidence of ability in English for overseas students. This follows the discovery of fraud connected with the exam earlier this year. The Judge School at Cambridge, the Durham University Business School, and London’s Cass Business School have stopped accepting the TOEFL from overseas students who need student visas in order to study in the UK.

The government suspended ETS, the company responsible for the TOEFL after fraud was found in connection with the TOEIC exam, also administered by the company. Since the TOEFL exam was not directly connected with the uncovered fraud, a number of schools will continue to accept the TOEFL – Oxford, Warwick, Henley, and LBS. LBS reported that they will continue to accept the TOEFL together with other exams, and that they use various methods to evaluate the candidate’s command of English (interviews are conducted in English and candidates are sometimes administered an English phone exam.)

Your LinkedIn Profile [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2014, 08:00

FROM Aringo Blog: Your LinkedIn Profile
In recent years, social networks have become increasingly important in the admissions process. Some admissions committees check candidates' social network profiles (especially LinkedIn) and use them to evaluate their candidacy.

It is therefore recommended that you update and improve your social network profile before submitting the application - to confirm that the profile both fits what is written in the application (dates, employments, etc.) and that it is impressive and written in a qualitative manner (language and content).

Aringo offers a new service - you can work with Aringo's LinkedIn specialist to edit and improve your LinkedIn profile.
For additional details, please contact Chrissy Miller or Chaya Pomeranz.

Good luck!

Want to Increase Your Chances? Show Interest! [#permalink] New post 03 Jul 2014, 00:00
Expert's post
FROM Aringo Blog: Want to Increase Your Chances? Show Interest!
A Businessweek article reveals MBA admissions committees’ methods of tracking the interest showed by a candidate and the influence on his or her admission chances. For example, Fuqua Business School at Dukeuses special software to trail the interest showed by the candidate for the program, specifically pointing out whether the candidate sent emails to the admission committee, how many times the candidate attended school events, etc. Other schools use even more sophisticated software to calculate data such as which candidates underwent alumni interviews or requested information about the program.  This data is calculated along with grades and essays to form the candidate’s profile and affects the committee’s decision.

This information influences the candidate’s admission chances since the admission committee wants to identify which candidates really want to get accepted, meaning the school prefers to accept a candidate who will in fact register for the program if accepted. This improves yield, so important for a school’s prestige. Chicago and Kellogg also began using similar software, marketed to maximize yield since applicants generally apply to a number of programs and often do not register at programs that accept them.

It is important to note that some schools claim that this data is not a significant factor in admissions decisions. Berkeley and MIT do not use such software to track candidates’ interest.

Chicago Published Essay Questions and Deadlines [#permalink] New post 20 Jul 2014, 12:00
Expert's post
FROM Aringo Blog: Chicago Published Essay Questions and Deadlines
Chicago Boothpublished updated essay questions and deadlines for its MBA program beginning in 2015:

Presentation/Essay: Chicago Booth values adventurous inquiry, diverse perspectives, and a collaborative exchange of ideas. This is us. Who are you?

Presentation/Essay Guidelines

 • Be reflective. We’ve learned a lot about you throughout the application, but what more should we know?
 • Interpret broadly. “Who are you?” can be interpreted in many different ways. We encourage you to think critically and broadly about who you are, and how your values, passions and experiences have influenced you.
 • Determine your own length. There is no prescribed minimum or maximum length. We trust that you will use your best judgment in determining how long your submission should be, but we recommend that you think strategically about how to best allocate the space.
 • Choose the format that works for you. You can design your presentation or compose your essay in the format that you feel best captures your response. However, please consider the specific technical restrictions noted below.
 • Think about you, not us. Rather than focusing on what you think we want to hear, focus on what is essential for us to know about you. Simply put, be genuine.

Technical Guidelines

 • File Size: Maximum file size is 16 MB.
 • Accepted Upload Formats: Acceptable formats are PDF, Word and Powerpoint.
 • Multimedia Restrictions: We will be viewing your submission electronically and in full color, but all submissions will be converted to PDF files, so animation, video, music, etc. will not translate over.
 • Preserve Your Formatting: We strongly recommend converting your piece to a PDF file prior to submitting to ensure that everything you see matches what we see.

Reapplicant Question
Upon reflection, how has your perspective regarding your future, Chicago Booth, and/or getting an MBA changed since the time of your last application? (300 words maximum)

Deadlines:
Round 1 – 9.25.2014

How Does HBS View the GRE/GMAT? [#permalink] New post 31 Aug 2014, 11:00
Expert's post
FROM Aringo Blog: How Does HBS View the GRE/GMAT?
Yesterday’s post on HBS’ admissions blog sheds light on the way their admissions committee views candidates’ GMAT/GRE scores.

First of all, Harvard emphasized that they accept both exams with no preference for either one, though candidates must choose one and cannot submit scores from both exams. Upon applying, candidates must enter an unofficial score, while the official score can arrive at the school post-deadline.

In addition, Harvard published statistics that of 935 accepted last year, 844 candidates applied with GMAT scores and only 81 with GRE scores, while 10 applicants applied with a score from both exams.

In terms of the score, Harvard focuses less on the general score and more on the different parts of the exam in relation to the candidate’s profile.  For example, an engineer with a strong quantitative background does not need a strong score in the test’s quantitative section to prove his or her mathematical capability, but a different candidate lacking an academic or professional quantitative background will need a strong score in the quantitative section to balance out his or her profile.

“We evaluate characteristics on two dimensions:  Demonstrated Success and Personal Attributes.  For Demonstrated Success we look for evidence of academic abilities and professional success.  Personal Attributes we look for include; ability to work on a team, ability to challenge the status quo or solve complex problems, innovative ways to make an impact, and a drive to achieve goals.

Our evaluation process, which includes a required face-to-face interview by invitation only, helps us to get to know you and to give us a better idea of how you have acted, felt or thought in specific situations.  It also gives you an opportunity to get to know us better as well.

We take a holistic approach to reviewing applications.  We have a professional Admissions Committee (no students or faculty). They will read your entire application. We encourage you to respond to the optional question to tell us more about yourself.”
