New post 05 Dec 2008, 08:16
Since there is a significant number of debates within sub-forums within this forum, I am going to quell all the rumors with concrete facts.

Schools started releasing info related to their application volume.

I am going to start off with this article.

In the future, if anyone else wants to report app volume related news, do it here with links to reference.

Source:

http://www.ketv.com/news/18184117/detail.html

1)University of Nebraska at Omaha MBA - 25% increase vs LY

2) Creighton University MBA - 34% increase
3) Bellevue University MBA - 17%
4) University of Nebraska-Lincoln MBA - 23%

(I am sure top schools will release info soon but this can give you an idea in general)

University of Memphis MBA
- Fall 09 apps already eclipsed volume of last 3 years (also expects total volume to DOUBLE in total this year vs last year)

Source:
http://stlouis.bizjournals.com/stlouis/ ... 1228107600^1739824


Washington University (Olin school of Business) - they won't disclose the exact number but quote: "the number of applicants that met the first-round deadline for the MBA program was significantly higher this year, according to Evan Bouffides, assistant dean and director of MBA admissions and financial aid."

Source:

http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/stori ... ory10.html

Southern methodist University - R1 apps for 2009
“We are up 76% in applications over last year’s first deadline,” Armstrong said, while declining to give an exact number. “It’s a pretty amazing increase, and I think that’s pretty directly attributable to the economy. When times are tough, people really think of investing in themselves and sharpening the saw — sharpening their skills — in hopes of advancing their career or to make a career change. “Inquiries are up, people are calling and e-mailing with a lot of interest in that (MBA) program,” she said.

University of Arizona
"At the University of Arizona, Marisa Cox, director of MBA admissions at Eller College, said MBA applications for fall 2009 are up 30 percent. "

Carey School of Businss - Arizona State University
(2009 PT apps - "Robert Mittelstaedt Jr., dean of the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, said applications for part-time MBA programs that will start next year are up about 30 percent because more applicants don't want to give up jobs to study full-time. He believes that also could be because the school and its MBA program made U.S. News & World Report's top-25 lists this year. "

Thunderbird
"Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale also has seen a 16.5 percent increase in fall 2008 enrollment in three graduate business programs over last year and a 30 percent increase in applications for the spring 2009 classes for full-time, distance (classes partly online) and executive programs."

UC Berkeley (Haas)

"Peter Johnson, executive director of admissions for the campus's full-time MBA program, estimates applications are already up roughly 20 percent compared to last year, although only one round of its four-round application cycle has ended."

Yale School of Management

http://www.yaledailynews.com/articles/view/26817
"SOM reported a 4 percent increase in applications for the first round of its 2008-’09 admissions cycle, Director of Admissions Bruce DelMonico said Wednesday. "

Interesting info, ninkorn.

I would guess that it's these lower rated schools that are seeing the biggest increase. I think the top schools won't top a 15% to 20% increase, at least rd 1 '08 over rd 1 '07. But who knows, maybe the numbers will blow out in rd 2 with today's job loss report. I'm so glad that I was able to get 4 apps in for rd 1 (and that's precisely the reason I did so).

Keep 'em coming if you get more info.

Alright, I agree with pelihu. This is just getting wierd. Are you a live newsfeed or something? What's next - a thread listing layoffs at F500 companies?

If you want to post these kind of items, consolidate all of the information into one post and present it thoughtfully. Stop cluttering the board.

If you really want the information to be user friendly edit your first post and put it all in there. It would be really easy to find especially if it was in order.

Also I hate to say it but I dont think that many of these schools are a good reflection of what tops schools will be seeing. These schools probably dont get very many apps to begin with, so its not that hard to increase volume a lot. I mean are some of those even fulltime programs?

I agree! But I was intrigued by SMU app numbers. 76% is high, and i dont even think that it reflects the volume increase that they might experience now that they have been ranked in the top 20 by BW. I know it would not make a huge diff to domestic applicants, but international applicants rely predominantly on rankings to choose their schools.

I saw where UNC Kenan Flagler backed their R1 interview deadline from December 17th to January 9th due to increase in demand.

I don't know if there's anything in print to back this up, but when I did an info session at Kellogg (it was the day before R1 deadline) the admissions officer doing the presentation said that their volume was up 22-23% over last year at the same point (i.e. day before deadline). Unless there was a huge dropoff in people who submitted on the deadline from last year, it's safe to assume a 20+% increase at Kellogg.
