From the Texas MBA Admissions Team:
The 2017-2018 application is open for all programs, so questions are starting to roll in from those who have applied to the MBA program in the past and are interested in re-applying for the Class of 2020.
First and foremost, having applied in a previous year is not considered a negative factor in your application. We are pleased to see your continued interest in the program and will evaluate your new application on its merits, and in the context of the new applicant pool, just as if you are applying for the first time.
Our best advice: Consider giving yourself a fresh start when you approach your new application. Think through and reassess your application, addressing any weak areas, and add new information that may be helpful in the admission process.
Below is an overview of the application process for re-applicants:
