Statement of Purpose Essay: Because the admissions process may not allow for personal interviews, this essay is a crucial reflection of the applicant’s written communication skills.
Past Academic Performance: Current competitive GPA: While there is no minimum undergraduate grade point average (GPA) requirement, the admissions committee views past grades as an important indicator of the applicant’s future academic performance. The committee may also consider the ranking and reputation of the applicant’s undergraduate institution.
Professional Experience: There is no work experience requirement although work experience will be viewed positively by the admissions committee.
GMAT Score: A current competitive GMAT is typically required. Applicants may request a waiver of the GMAT requirement based on exceptional academic and/or professional experience. A recommendation for a GMAT waiver must be made by the Graduate Director or Director of the School of Accountancy and approved by the College of Graduate Studies.
Other Required Scores: Competitive scores on any other required tests will also be considered and are an extremely important component of the application.
Letters of Recommendation: Letters are optional but may boost candidates’ chances for admission. References should speak to the applicant’s personal qualities, career potential, and potential to succeed in the classroom.
