Ask Julie: What is Smith Super Saturday?

Julie Dellinger - 2015 headshotI  saw on the deadline’s page that there is something called Smith Super Saturday. What is this and do I need to attend if  I apply for the Part Time MBA program?

Yes, we do have a Smith Super Saturday assigned to each of our deadlines. You can see the schedule for our Fall 2018 admissions deadlines on this page!

Smith Super Saturdays are interview days specifically for the Part Time MBA program. These are half-day events that include a candidate interview by current students and alumni, a panel event with current students, a chance to meet the faculty directors, and lots of networking!

Details about Smith Super Saturday’s are emailed directly to each applicant after each application deadline. While interviews are not required in order to gain formal admission, they are strongly encouraged. Please note, if a candidate is unable to attend they will still receive their admissions decision on the scheduled date.
