I talked to Cornell/Johnson Admissions this morning. I found out that they are about send a mass notice to state that the decision date is going to be postposned by upto 4 weeks in response to the extremely heavy application volume.

I haven't even received an interview invite yet.

Great!!

Weird. It sounds like there is a significant spike in application volume this year. Schools reporting application incresaes as high as 15-50%, pushing deadlines, etc. I wonder why.

I will tell you my theory - we are all applying to multiple schools, and probably more then in the past because everyone wants to get in.

I think a lot of schools are seeing the same applicants along with some increased volume generated by more interest in MBA programs in general.

I totally agree with OasisNYK. The surprising thing is that GMAT volume is not up significantly from last year. Last year was one of the statistically easiest years to get in. Some top schools have accept rates of over %20. This is because there was a 3 year slide in app volume. The increase of %15-50 is a recovery to normal levels.

I believe part of the volume increase is because more people are filling out multiple apps. With all the new online resources, it is easier than ever to know how to fill out an app. Also, I think people are applying to more schools because of the hype (justified or not) that business school admission is going to be more competitive this year.
