Reapplying to MBA program after previous acceptance [#permalink] New post 15 Sep 2011, 08:42
Hi mbaMission,

This fall I will be reapplying to a top program I was previously accepted to this past spring. Due to personal/family reasons, I made the gut-wrenching decision to not accept admission as my priorities had shifted as a result of my circumstances (which have now improved drastically). Now that I am again 100% prepared to pursue my MBA, how do you recommend I demonstrate that I am genuinely committed to the program despite my decision to not enroll in the last application cycle (applying in round 1, improving my GMAT score, contacting admissions office, explaining my circumstances in my reapplicant essay, etc.)? Am I at a serious disadvantage because I did not accept the previous offer of admission?

Hello goericgo, thanks for your question.

Let me ask: When you declined admission at this program, did you ask for a one-year deferment (which many programs are willing to give, depending on their numbers and your specific situation)? Why didn’t you? If not, did you speak with anyone at the admissions office about why you were declining?

I don’t think your prior decision is a dealbreaker, but I do think having your situation on record with the admissions office would be a big plus.

Regardless, the first step is probably calling the admissions office, explaining your situation, and getting their advice.

Best of luck!
Brian
