This is just my two cents.
But I think they do a quick overview of all the applications and invite the people they really want (Super Stars) for an interview. Before doing a second round of in depth reviews and see who they want to interview. (This is done in each round.)
I think the best way to check this would be to see if the people that got offered $$ in the first round had all been invited to an interview before the generic email went out (during R1).


I agree with this. I submitted my R1 application last minute, and got an invite two and a half days later. It seemed most people who got immediate invites were domestic applicants with above average GMAT scores. I'm certain they looked at my gmat score, brand name company I worked at, and quality of my undergrad institution, without reading anything else about my application.

Also, most of the people who got an early acceptance in December were people who got scholarships (I think only one on this board DIDNT get a fellowship).

I hope you guys are right. :)
I applied in R1 and still have 1% hope of being invited to interview.
Let's wait.

Hi guys. I am a R1 applicant that got invited to interview in December and just did my interview a week ago now. My question is if everyone will get notified of acceptance on the same day (the 28th) or if decisions will slowly come out starting fairly soon?

Surprisingly peaceful protests this time; wouldn't even call them protests. Some major intersections are closed off but we're pretty much function near-normal.

Any others from SEA?

Interviewed yesterday with a 2nd-year student. Overall I feel like it went really well. There were a couple areas I wish I would have explained a little better, but I am happy with how I did. The interview was very conversational, and for the most part, no unexpected questions. Here is a general summary of the questions I was asked:

-Tell me about yourself.
-Why an MBA now?
-Why Anderson?
-Why are you looking to change careers?
-What do you envision yourself doing when begin working in X industry?
-What are your long-term career goals?
-How will you contribute to the Anderson community?
-What are your strengths as a leader?
-What leadership qualities do you want to work on at Anderson?
-Any question for me?

The interview was about 35 minutes. Good luck to everyone interviewing or waiting for an invite!

Now begins that horrible waiting game that seems to last forever and makes the pit of your stomach feel sick for the next 3 months.

I think each interviewer has the freedom to ask what they want. My questions were different from above posters. time you failed, time you had to network, etc. Most of the questions were based around me and would not be relevant to other interviewees as they were questions regarding my goals of working for a large bicycle manufacturer.

I applied on the R2 deadline and have an interview coming up next week. Are you saying I have to wait until April 2nd to find out the admission decision? Or do they release the decisions before April 2nd?

I have seen that some schools make calls to all admitted students a few days beforehand. I wouldn't anticipate finding out earlier. On the other hand, if you don't get an interview invite by the last week of March, I would take that to assume a ding.

Don't sweat it. Just focus on interview preparation in the event you get invited. Good luck!

Thoughts, anyone else?

Sounds like Anderson accepted (and offered scholarships to) some candidates well before the deadline in R1 if you go back a few pages on this thread.

Not sure if they will do that in R2 as well but it would definitely be nice. I'm interviewing next week as well.

I'm an international applicant and got invited to r2 interview. But it's still very early so lots more invites will come in the next month or two. Definitely no need to lose hope.
