McIntire Business School admissions
Just finished a tour at UVa and loved everything about it... except their business programs. I have some idea that I would like to pursue a management degree, but I learned that at UVa there is no assured admission to the business school. From my understanding, this means I can get into UVa, attend and then at the end of my freshman year find that I would be denied from the business program. My concerns with this is 1) having to go through another application process in the middle of college (I'd rather be done with all this application stress for good when I get into undergrad) 2) instead of acclimating and enjoying freshmen year I'll be focusing on beefing extracurriculars to get into McIntire which isn't what college should be about and 3) being locked out of a career I am interested in just because I was rejected. If anyone could provide details about this process and if it is really worth this McIntire "risk" to go to UVa assuming I am admitted. Also as a side note, if others could provide details about how this process works at UNC and UMich, and if either of these would be preferable for my preferred track. Thanks a ton.9 replies
