How good is career services at McCombs? Is there sufficient 'case-study interview' preparation given to students? I read in the placement statistics that M/B/B recruit on-campus at Texas. But I guess they pick 2-3 students each from a batch of 260 odd students.

As far as IBs are concerned, do McCombs students need to travel to NYC/Chicago for interviews? Do banks make an effort to fly down to Austin?

Thanks!

ps: I am also open to a PhD in management. Does McCombs provide sufficient preparation to students in mathematics, OR, statistics? Are there any 'advanced classes' for students interested in a PhD?

I replied to your PM with respect to NY/Chicago. The short answer is that every bank and consulting firm interviews on-campus.

I think career services is very good, particularly the head of CS (Stacy). There a variety of resources to prepare for interviews and recruiting, especially for consulting and banking prep. While it is true that each firm might only hire 1-3 students (per firm), not all 260 are interested in consulting, probably more like 10-15%. McCombs is quite diverse in terms of the desired career paths of the student body so while recruiting is competitive, there are not a huge number of people gunning for each and every spot.

Hi all! Is it true I need to wait for the scholarship decision before filling out the CFR form required for I-20? I am guessing thats a month's wait till i apply for an I-20 and another till it reaches me

Any body in the same boat?

It scores a 9.4 in the Collaborative category of PK Quarterly, for what that's worth. More seriously, I don't think Texas has a reputation of being cutthroat at all but rather pretty relaxed. I'm sure there will be jerks there as anywhere, but I don't think the system is designed to reward that.

McCombs is a very collaborative culture. People are always willing to help. Academically; I’ve both received help from classmates and have helped classmates. I’ve been able to get contact information for employers from students who are competing for the same positions. I’ve also had students who’ve interviewed for positions a few hours before me fill me in on what to expect. The 2nd years have been a great resource as well. Manager Status: 2012!!!

AT&T Executive Conference center is out of rooms for March 31st, but does have some left in the block for April 1st. Looks like I'll be at the DoubleTree. Anyone know if it is feasible to walk to McCombs from the DoubleTree? Thanks. Scott _________________ Remember to keep things in perspective. No matter what happens, everything will be just fine.

There are a lot of hotel options downtown, if you are planning on enjoying what Austin has to offer though, I recommend staying near 6th. I recommend making time during your visits to enjoy the live music scene, if you spend two years here then you will definitely get to enjoy it. _________________ Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
