Attention: Round 4 Deadline Approaching

April 03, 2018

The Round Four Application Deadline Is Soon!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to write this post! I often forget how quickly things move after round two. As I was looking at my calendar for the next few weeks, I realized that we are fast approaching the round four deadline. So, if you’ve been thinking of starting an MBA in Fall 2018, you’ll want to apply in round four.

Round four is typically reserved for our part-time program applicants (at least, it’s when a lot of part-timers submit applications); but, if you are still interested in applying to our full-time format, I’d recommend scheduling a 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 before the round four deadline on April 20, 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. 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 20 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 career goals and your essay. (We only require one.) You want to put your best, most proofread foot forward!

Good luck with your application!
