Earlier this week, the Munroe Street Journal, the student newspaper at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, published an article from Soojin Kwon Koh, Director of Admissions, on this year’s admission cycle to date (Admissions breaks down the incoming Class of 2009).
- 31% increase in applications
- Four point rise in GMAT scores
- Eight more countries represented (from 31 to 39)
What was most interesting about this article is that Soojin Kwon Koh states that the rise in applications is coming from individual candidates applying to more schools and that, because of this trend, Ross will have to fight for each candidate. She offers a clear call to action from the community to help keep the yield high by enaggeing candidates.
