Post MBA application - what to do [#permalink] New post 14 Jan 2011, 10:28

I applied to MBA schools in R2 recently.
I was wondering what should be the right approach once you submitted the application -
1) SHould you somehow contact adcom and students and alumni - so that you seem interested in the programme by this. OR remain quite and wait for next communcation from the school

2) In case you are invited for the interview - what is best - have face-to-face alumni interview in your country (for internationals) or have telephonic with adcom. For example, I got invite from UNC but haven't replied back yet what should I do

3) In case some school, like Kellogg, waives your interview due to high number of applicants in your area. What does that mean? What should be your approach.

Look forward to your replies.

1) If you submitted your application for R2 then you should wait to hear a decision. Most schools provide a time frame in which they will let you know if you've been admitted. Bugging them before decisions are made will not increase your chances of getting in.

2) Choose the option that will allow you to perform the best. Typically, in person interviews are easier because you can communicate via facial expressions and body language as well. I often conduct mock interviews to assist applicants as they prepare for live interviews. I always find the mock interviews are a bit more challenging since you cannot see each other or get feedback from non-verbal cues.

3) Sometimes schools will choose not to interview all applicants. There is really nothing you can do about it. However, if the school has a networking event in your area, be sure to attend and make some contacts.
