What are the application requirements?
- Online application
- Letters of recommendation
- GMAT/GRE score
- And OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS
This time of year is when a deadline for all of our graduate programs coincides within a span of 15 days. With the deadline for our four MS programs on December 1st (as Maria mentioned in her blog post), the part time MBA deadline on the 5th and full time MBA deadline on the 15th….we are getting hundreds of packages in the mail every day from all over the world. And (partly) thanks to us (and the applicants, of course) we are keeping DHL in business!
The admissions team has employed multiple graduate assistants in both the Admissions Office and Masters Programs Office to help processing all of the documents to and get your application status updated online sooner!
Only 2 of the many boxes we get everyday!

As you may know, the first deadline for the MS program was yesterday. Our office has been pleasantly surprised by the volume! We did see an uptake in applications (statistics still not final), so we expect our office to be busy over the next few days (and weeks!).
It looks like a fairly well established assembly line here. Picture this: someone is opening envelopes, someone is stamping dates on the documents, and someone is filing! It sounds so simple, yet it can get quite complicated when you are dealing with cabinets filled with folders!
So, if you submitted your application, we appreciate your patience. If you haven’t yet…what are you waiting for?!?!?

DeWalt visits our campus to recruit students on a regular basis. This year, their recruiting style includes hands-on use of various tools and machines. They set up camp right out side of Van Munching Hall and invited students to stop by, drop off a resume, play with their tools, and talk to recruiters. Their non-traditional set up was quite inviting! Pretty cool, DeWalt…pretty cool!

As you may know, fall is always a busy time in any admissions office. Our office is no exception! We are traveling to various corners of the world and are excited about recruiting the next MBA and MS classes.
By the end of the year, the admissions team would have visited 5 continents. We have covered tons of miles, slept in many hotels, and met thousands of people!
I hope to meet you near your home town some time soon. To see the rest of our travel schedule, go to http://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/mba/learnmore/admissionevents.aspx If you prefer to visit us on campus, go to http://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/mba/learnmore/fulltime-learnmore.aspx

Smith students will surely be coming back to a pleasant surprise with the new Office of Career Services suite. Decked out with plasma TVs, an employers’ lounge, student interview prep area, 19 interview rooms, and a room dedicated to video conferencing, they sure did a lot with a 6’ addition to the business school building. As Smith is giving a facelift to the building, the new director of the Office of Career Services is also making steps towards improving the services provided to students and building stronger relations with employers. This fall will be an exciting fresh start.
And, with the smell of fresh paint and new carpet still lingering in the air from the new Office of Career Services suite, the sounds of hammers and destruction have now floated down the hall to where they will be remodeling a new suite for the graduate admissions office.

Well, it’s that time of the year again…time to get your calendars out and meet us at a recruiting event. The Smith School will be attending numerous events around the world, and we would love to meet as many prospective students as possible. We will start traveling in July. First place: New York City! After that, it’s Boston, and then a few west coast cities. Once August hits, we’ll be all around the world.
Check out where we’ll be…and meet us there! http://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/mba/learnmore/admissionevents.aspx

There’s been much discussion here in the Admissions Office about about QR codes. For those who do not know what QR codes are, they are small boxes with dots/cubes in it (total about 1 inch square) that are scanned by mobile devices. Once scanned, the code essentially serves as a barcode and redirects someone to a website or a video. If you need a visual…simply google “QR Codes”.
We are looking forward to using this and maximizing its potential. So, what are your thoughts on this? What would you like to see a QR code direct your mobile device to? We are in the brainstorming and executing stages and would love to hear what you think!

Dean Anand has joined us in the Twitter world…and has been enjoying it! He has posted very random information about the Smith School and his personal life.
He is quite new to this, but he has embraced Twitter with open arms! Any suggestions as to what his next social media venture shall be???

Current temperature is at 100 degrees Fahrenheit. So, clearly, summer weather has descended onto College Park. Even though we all dream of sunny, fun and lazy summers, we cannot execute it! This year, the admissions office will start recruiting for the class of 2014 in a few weeks! Our first trip will be to Los Angeles for the Idealist Fair on June 13th.
Don’t worry class of 2013, we are still here for you! Soon, orientation and class registration information will be sent your way–so be on the lookout!

I can’t even describe the triple excitement for my trip to Chile… First of course we landed the day that the last of the Chilean Mineros (Miners) were rescued. And while there was so much happiness, there was still much trepidation that all would go well. Second, seeing SMITH Alumni (Viva Chilean TERPS) – -Carolina, Daniella y Walter! Such a great treat for me and all of the students we met during the fair! Santiago is just a beautiful city… and I did not have enough time to walk and just see the city.
From the plane — it is so peaceful to fly over the Andes…. And here I have met students who are so passionate about sustainable buiness, eco-tourism and energy policy. There were many questions and discussion about the Dingman Center and the Center for Social Value Creation at Smith.
So it was a trip of work, reunion, rescue and enlightment. Yes, the world seemed a lot closer yesterday.
