With the ensuing crisis, I wonder in the next 1 to 2 years how much aggregate acceptance rates will lower at b-schools

I spoke with a Rice MBA admissions person and she said he was seeing more finance related people applying for admissions then in years back.

It’s going to be a pain in the ass. All these bankers getting fired will make it harder for sure.

It always happens…the MBA applications increase in the time of a market crisis.

without a doubt. will be very tough for a few.

Now might be the time to get an MBA though because the job market is going to be rough for a few years.

goldenboy are you in houston area? I went to the last Rice info session and they did say that applications were up.
