Do some biz schools "enhance" applicant numbers?
The elite business schools seems swamped with applicants--sometimes as much as a 20% increase from last year.
Harvard, UCLA, Univ of NC--all boasting bumper crops of would-be grads.
Yes, Millennials are thinking there is a chance of getting a job, but a lot of it is aggressive recruiting abroad.
The more applicants, the more desirable a school looks--and the more selective it can be.
Some schools are trying to boost the waning interest of US students by holding info sessions and getting back to those who started, but did not complete, applications.
Business school is a business, too, after all.
