FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: Round One Decisions: It’s a Wrap!
Image

It’s finally Dec. 12! And that means that our round one decisions have been released! I think I can hear a collective deep breath being taken across our office and I imagine you have taken one as well.

If you were offered admission to the Tepper School, we want to celebrate with you! Tag @TepperCMU on Instagram in your celebration selfies to be shared.

I am excited to think about those of you who will choose to become some of the first students in our incoming class! I also want to personally have the chance to welcome you (our newly admitted students!) to our Welcome Weekend, April 5-6, 2019. Be sure to stay tuned for more information about that weekend if you were just admitted.

So, what is next? No matter the outcome of your admission decision, know that we seriously consider every application and appreciate your hard work and thoughtfulness in submitting your application. For those of you who are currently on our waitlist, I’ll have some words for you in early January about some steps you might take to stay engaged with the Admissions team. If you were offered admission, stay tuned to the Countdown website. There you’ll find a lot of exciting and important information that we will post in the coming months.

For those of you reading who will be submitting your application in round two – now is your time! I’ll be sharing a post next week with some tips for your final application touches. I imagine you are putting the finishing touches on your application and getting ready to submit.

Please know that the university will be closed from Dec. 1 through Jan. 1. We will be back in the office on Wednesday, Jan. 2. If you have any last-minute questions about submitting your application, be sure to send them by Dec. 21 (or sooner). Be kind to Judy who answers our main Admissions number.

The Round Two Application Deadline Is Almost Here  [#permalink]

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: The Round Two Application Deadline Is Almost Here
Image

Winter greetings from Pittsburgh! While we are taking a breath after releasing the round one admission decisions, and before we head home for some rest over the holidays, I wanted to take a moment to let you know that our round two application deadline is quickly approaching!

I’ve written this before, but I think it’s worth providing again. If you are planning to submit your application by Jan. 5 for the round two deadline (I can’t believe it’s almost January!), make sure you’ve done a few things:

  • Read the application instructions. This is a comprehensive list of everything we need from you in order to ensure your application is complete and the Admissions committee can begin their review. Note, for this year: We have diploma and grading scale guides if you need a little extra help figuring out what we want.
  • Make sure your recommender knows the application deadline. Too often, I see applications that can’t be forwarded for review because the recommender hasn’t yet submitted. Especially given that many recommenders may be taking vacation over the holidays, be sure to give plenty of advanced notice and urge your recommender to circle Jan. 5 on her/his calendar in red pen!
  • Proofread, proofread, proofread. You’ve got your transcripts ready to upload, your GMAT score have been sent to us, and your recommender is ready to submit – now, make sure you’ve proofread your essay (we only require one!) and your career goals. You want to put your best, most-proofread foot forward!
As in the previous round, shortly after the application deadline, we will begin the first of several waves of interview invitations. Don’t worry if you aren’t among those who receive an invitation in the early wave. We send interview invitations all the way until a few days prior to the decision notification date. Try to be patient and keep checking your email (even the junk mail folder). Also, our campus visit calendar is available and we’d love to see you visit campus this winter.

Good luck with your application!

My New Year's Resolution  [#permalink]

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: My New Year's Resolution
Image

First, I want to wish all of you and your families my warmest holiday wishes. Life between Thanksgiving and the new year is usually a blur for me – and this year was no different.

As we cross into the new year, I find myself reflecting on 2018 and looking forward to all that 2019 will bring. I am often asked if I’ve made any new year’s resolutions. This year, I thought I’d share some:

  • Continue to be amazed at the candidates who visit our office. I mean it! One of the best parts of my job is when I talk with you about your plans for the future and how the Tepper School fits into those plans. It makes me excited for Welcome Weekend, when we get the first glimpse of the class coming together. It may be only a couple days into January, but I look forward to this important event every spring.
  • Explore more of the Tepper Quad. With such a dynamic (and big!) space, I feel like I’m still learning about all that the Quad offers. What I can assure you is we have some of the best coffee and treats on campus – and it’s right outside our office door!
  • Enjoy our team. We have some really great new staff and some pretty good seasoned staff, too. I look forward to continuing to watch this team work together and enjoy the work they are passionate about – working with you! As we enter the new year, I am reminded of the importance of having a strong, dedicated Admissions team and am thankful for each of them.
While many folks make resolutions and aren’t able (or forget!) to keep, I’m excited to be able to fulfill mine. Cheers to 2019!

2019 Leadership Conference Hosted by Tepper Women in Business: Will We  [#permalink]

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: 2019 Leadership Conference Hosted by Tepper Women in Business: Will We See You There?
Image

An exciting event for our community is quickly approaching! On Sunday, Feb. 17, it is time for the 2019 Leadership Conference hosted by Tepper Women in Business (TWIB).  While this isn’t an Admissions-specific event, I’d highly encourage you to attend. I received a note from TWIB leaders that provides a lot of great context.

The event provides the opportunity for current MBA students, prospective MBA students, early career professional women, and male allies to engage in professional and leadership development and participate in a forum to discuss the unique opportunities and challenges women face in their careers. This year’s conference will focus on negotiation and advocacy.

What else can you expect from this conference? Our MBA students, alumni, and conference sponsors will share their professional journeys and the impact of business school on their leadership development. Additionally, our Accelerate Leadership Center will present and discuss ways to grow as a leader in the workplace. Our faculty keynotes will highlight research on challenges women face at work and how women can serve as advocates for themselves and others. If any of this sounds like an opportunity you’d like to explore, then I recommend that you register to attend.

What else do you need to know? First, there is no cost to attend. Second, breakfast and lunch (and lots of coffee!) will be provided. Last, the dress code is smart casual. The conference, hosted in the brand new Tepper Quad, takes place Sunday, Feb. 17, 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

I hope that you will join us for this excellent professional development and networking opportunity.

The Round Three Application Deadline Is Coming  [#permalink]

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: The Round Three Application Deadline Is Coming

Hello from somewhat warm (or at least, not very cold!) and sunny Pittsburgh! While we are hard at work finishing the review of all of our round two applications, I wanted to take a moment to share that our round three application deadline is quickly approaching!

If you hadn’t heard, Punxsutawney Phil (Google him if you don’t know him!) told us a few weeks ago that we only had six more weeks of winter. As we look forward to consistently warmer weather, I want to share that we only have one more week until the round three application deadline! At this point in the year, we’ve got some really excited round one deposited students, some eager round two candidates hoping for admission, and now you – those still considering applying for Fall 2019 admission in round three.

As I’ve written this before (and it can’t be overstated), if you are planning to submit your application by March 7 for the round three deadline, make sure you’ve done a few things:

  • Read the application instructions. This is a comprehensive list of everything we need from you in order to ensure your application is complete and the Admissions Committee can begin their review – to note for this year, we have diploma and grading scale guides if you need a little extra help figuring out what we want.
  • Make sure your recommender knows the application deadline. Too often, I see applications that can’t be forwarded for review because the recommender hasn’t yet submitted. Let your recommender know to circle March 7 on her/his calendar in red pen.
  • Proofread, proofread, proofread. You’ve got your transcripts ready to upload, your GMAT score have been sent to us, and your recommender is ready to submit – now, make sure you’ve proofread your essay (we only require one) and your career goals. You want to put your best, most proofread foot forward.
As in all previous rounds, shortly after the application deadline, we will begin the first of several waves of interview invitations. Don’t sweat it if you aren’t among those who receive an early invitation. We send interview invitations all the way until a few days prior to the decision notification date. (We just sent out some round two interview invitations today.) Try to be patient and keep checking your email (even the junk mail folder).

Good luck with your application!

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: Round Two Decisions Are Released
Image

It’s warm here in Pittsburgh on March 14. Last week it was snowing and cold. That’s the truest indicator that it’s March!

The next biggest indicator is that round two decisions have been released! If you are a recently admitted round two candidate (or one of our round one deposited folks!), I look forward to seeing you (and your partner) at Welcome Weekend, taking place April 5-6. We’ll send an email shortly to provide the registration link.

I want to thank each of you who submitted an application in round two. Your thoughtful responses and all of your dedication and effort in making your application as competitive as possible did not go unnoticed. Our team spent the last three months immersed in application review and they are just as excited as I am to welcome everyone to campus.

I hope everyone (including us) can now take a moment to catch their breath and begin to look forward to the next several months. For us, we’ve got round three and four, as well as Welcome Weekend (our favorite weekend) – for you, it’s preparing for the next two or three years of your life as a Tepper student.

Welcome!

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: Welcome Weekend for Admitted Candidates
Image

There is so much happening in the Tepper Masters Admissions office these days. Just yesterday, we released round two decisions; last week we began our round three application reviews, interviews, invitations; and soon we will host one of my favorite events – Welcome Weekend!

I always use this event as a bit of a marker of time. This event usually means that we’ve made it through much of our busy season and it will soon be time to welcome new students to the Tepper Quad! For those of you who have been admitted in round one and two, I want to share a bit more about Welcome Weekend for full-time MBA candidates.

Taking place Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6, Welcome Weekend is an admitted student weekend devoted entirely to our incoming full-time students. Whether rain or shine (fingers crossed for sunshine!), Friday provides an opportunity to connect with your future classmates, learn about student clubs and life in Pittsburgh (Let’s Go Pens!), and hear more about becoming part of our Tepper community.

Dinner Friday night is in conjunction with a favorite Tepper tradition —  B**rs — where we’ll gather to enjoy some good food and drinks and some even better company! Saturday brings a day filled with information specific to our MBA program and curriculum. We’ll have sessions that highlight how we prepare you to lead at the intersection of business technology, and analytics, and you’ll hear more directly from our deans and faculty. We end the weekend, and pull out all the stops, with a cocktail reception and dinner at Heinz Field.

If you’ve been admitted to in round one or two, we’d love to see you in Pittsburgh. Partners are welcome, so save the date and plan to spend your weekend getting more excited about your life at the Tepper School! I hope to see you there.

P.S.: if you are a part-time admitted candidate, know that we’ve got an equally exciting and special admitted student weekend for you, coming up in May. Stay tuned for details!

Tuesday Tips: Mapping the Road Ahead  [#permalink]

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: Tuesday Tips: Mapping the Road Ahead
Image

Happy Tuesday, everyone! As we head into the spring and summer, I’m sure those of you who will be joining us this fall have started to prep your to-do list. Our Admissions team is a resource for you. So, how can you best prepare for the road ahead?

  • Review your online Admission letter for any specific pre-matriculation requirements you need to meet. Everyone needs to complete the ReVera verification registration by your deposit deadline (you’ll be hearing from us if you still need to do this), sign up for any required preparatory courses, and complete any outstanding items – all listed in your admission letter! You’ll also see the best contact person for each requirement, should you have any questions.
  • Check out the MBA Countdown website and revisit regularly for updates. This is our official vehicle for communication for you. We’ll send some emails along the way, but you’ll want to keep an eye on the Countdown site. Among other information, this is where you’ll find our address for sending your official transcripts (those are due to us by July 1), the Financial Aid Policy, the Academic Calendar, and the Student Handbook. This is also where we will eventually post the BaseCamp schedule, important notes from our Computing office, and any other important information you will need. Bookmark this page!
  • Incoming international students: Be sure to download and complete your financial forms and have them sent to us. We facilitate these forms but you will hear directly from our Office of International Education (OIE) once your I-20 Form has been issued. This can take up to six weeks, so you’ll want to get your financial forms to us as soon as possible. (You can find them on the Countdown site.)
  • Attend an admitted student webinar (or several). Every few weeks, a member of our staff hosts a webinar that will focus on Financial Aid, Student Services, Career Opportunities, or the Accelerate Leadership Center. These hour-long virtual presentations will be facilitated by us but will feature our colleagues in each of the mentioned offices. Their staff will walk you through the steps you need to take to be ready to start BaseCamp in August. Missed a webinar or weren’t able to attend? We’ve got you covered. All of these webinars are recorded and placed on the Countdown site for your benefit. See how important it will be to bookmark the Countdown site!
  • Become a Pittsburgher! Whether you are moving here, joining us for Access Weekends, or already working in the city, immerse yourself in the city and our culture! If you’re a runner, the Pittsburgh Marathon is in May and is a great chance to see the city. I also recommend checking out the baseball schedule, the arts and music performances (take in a show Downtown), and our awesome restaurants. You will be plenty busy during your time here, but I definitely recommend checking out all Pittsburgh has to offer.

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: We’re Approaching the Round Four Application Deadline
Image

I can hardly believe the title of this post! Life in Admissions moves quite quickly after round two. As we are looking forward to Spring in Pittsburgh, we are also looking forward to this fast approaching application deadline. If you’ve been thinking of submitting an MBA application for Fall 2019 and have not yet done so, you’ll want to submit an application in round four.

While round four is typically reserved for our part-time program applicants, if you are interested in our full-time program, schedule some time to chat with one of our Admission officers. (Give us a call at 412-268-5687.)

If you are planning to submit your application by April 18 by the round-four deadline, make sure you’ve done a few things:

  • Register to take the GMAT (or have your official scores sent to the Tepper School). For folks who decide around this time of year that they’d still like to submit their application, the biggest logistical roadblock they face is our receipt of official test scores. Know that you must have taken your GMAT (or GRE) at the time of your application submission and that it can take up to 10 business days for us to receive your official score.
  • Read the application instructions! This is a comprehensive list of everything we need from you in order to ensure your application is complete and the Admissions Committee can begin their review.
  • Make sure your recommender knows the application deadline. Too often applications can’t be forwarded for review because the recommender hasn’t yet submitted. Urge your recommender to circle April 18 on her/his calendar in red pen.
  • Proofread, proofread, proofread! You’ve got your transcripts ready to upload, your GMAT score has been sent to us, and your recommender is ready to submit – now, make sure you’ve proofread your essay (we only require one) and your career goals. You want to put your best, most proofread foot forward.
Good luck with your application!

FROM CMU Tepper MBA Admission Blog: Tuesday Tips: Download a Weather App

I am writing today’s post after the country’s late winter weather moved through the Pittsburgh region. Luckily, we just had some cold and no snow. The next few days look very promising, so I’m hopeful that was the last of winter!

As I was thinking about this post and our great city, I wanted to pass along some tips as our deposited full-time students prepare to move here in just a few short months and our part-time students prepare to spend Admitted Student Weekend with us in a couple of weeks!

  • Even though you will be moving here in the beautiful days of summer, you may want to plan ahead and bring a coat. Once we move into fall, you will notice that we experience all four seasons (sometimes in one week!) so a warm, water-resistant coat will be a worthy investment. The Admissions team suggests that you dress in layers— you might start your day with snow on the ground and arrive home in the evening to sunshine and blue skies. If you are coming from a tropical climate, don’t worry, there are lots of places to buy coats as we move into the fall.
  • Give some thought to how you’ll get around the city (from campus and shops to Thursday night socials). As a student at the Tepper School, your student ID is your pass to ride the city bus. It is super convenient and this app — Transit: Real-Time Transit App — allows you to track the arrival times at your nearest stop. Pittsburgh has a small, light rail system Downtown, but you can plan your commute by bus, bike, or good ol’ foot! You certainly can get around the city without a car, but you’ll want to know your options. If we can help, give us a call or post a question in the Facebook group!
  • Get to know the city. Pittsburghers are proud of our city. The renaissance we’ve seen over the last 20 years has been exciting. We love our sports teams (no matter what!), our culture, our history, and also where we’re headed. If you have the flexibility, plan your move to be early in the summer so that you have some free time to explore the city. Catch a game, explore some of the restaurants, take your pet to one of our awesome parks — really get to know what makes us proud!
I’ve lived much of my life in this great city and I’m excited to share all it has to offer with you. Now, get to planning your move!
