7. What are some of the most common mistakes that applicants make that hurt their chances of being accepted?

Candidates should keep in mind that every interaction they have with any representative of the school may have an impact on their application, and this can impact a candidate's chances of acceptance in either a positive or a negative manner. We encourage applicants to take every opportunity to get to know our program so that they can reflect on elements of the program that appeal to them personally in their application.

8. Can you describe the archetypal student for your school?

The Jones School prides itself on the diversity of its student body. Although our average cohort size of 125 students is relatively small, our students represent many different countries and cultures, and have a broad spectrum of educational and professional backgrounds. Because of this diversity, it is difficult to describe the typical or archetypical student. One thing that all Jones School students do have in common, though, is their commitment to fostering a collaborative business school environment.
