Applying for Admission to the Class of 2012

At the end of every admission cycle, the GSB posts the upcoming year's application and notification deadlines. We typically do this after our Round 3 response deadline. However, because we have moved up the date for applying for Round 1, we decided to post our deadlines now to give you a bit more time to prepare. You can find the deadlines here. In July, we'll be adding more information to our site, including the admission application and instructions, so make sure to check back.

Also, as we do every year, we've posted the new short-answer essay questions; the two longer-format essay questions remain unchanged. You can find all of the questions, along with essay-writing tips from Derrick Bolton, our director of MBA Admissions, here.

As is customary for many business schools, we will post the new class profile when our students arrive in September. Until then, happy application planning!
