A letter from an lumna about online applications to PU

January 22, 2002

Recently, I was astounded to learn that Princeton has no online application process. I just completed all of my MBA applications (to Stanford, Berkeley, UCLA, and USC) online. The process was fast, accurate, and kind of fun. The automated application let me know which sections of the application I had yet to complete. I received an automated email letting me know when my application had been processed, and I was able to pay the application fee by credit card. I even had the option (on Berkeley’s application) of providing my recommenders with a link to submit their letters of recommendation online. Why doesn’t Princeton do this? Aren’t we supposed to be innovators? Why is Princeton so behind the times? Can you please write an article about this?
