When reviewing the application, the HRMT graduate admission committee will evaluate the application as a whole, considering the applicant's background, industry experiences, transcripts, recommendation letters, statement of purpose, previous research experience, and any other supporting material. No single item of the application requirements leads the decision. Generally speaking, if one measure is below expectation, we require other indicators to be commensurately high enough to balance it. For example, applicants with lower GPA may be offered admission provided that other aspects of their application show evidence of distinctive potential, such as strong performance on the GRE/GMAT, professional experience and proper fit with the HRMT program. The HRMT graduate admission committee may schedule an on-campus or online interview with some applicants before making the final decision.
