Dean Teele Sees Business School Applications Rise

Admissions Test to Receive More Emphasis in Selection


Stanley F. Teele, dean of the Business School, reported that increased competition among applicants will force the School to place greater emphasis on test scores. He expects that the School will receive at least 5,000 applications for the class which will enter in 1961.

In his annual Dean's Report, Teele said that "pressure for admission to undergraduate and graduate institutions alike will become increasingly great." Of the 2,180 applications for this year's Business School entering class, only 627 were registered in September.

Tests Receive Greater Stress

Teele reported that Business School admissions officers also expect to place greater emphasis on past college records, and other indications of intellectual capacity" in choosing applicants.

Because of the greater part to be played by the Admission Test, the School will conduct studies of the correlation between test performance and academic achievement after admission, the report continued.

Teele said that the Business School had achieved the first major goal of its Financial Aid Program. The program was set up partially to insure "that no man meeting the admissions requirements should be denied the opportunity to attend the M.B.A. Program for financial reasons."

The Report added that the amount spent from the Loan Fund this year exceeded by only $1,000 the repayments received from previous loan holders.
