A R1 admit here.

Tepper has followed up us very well. The school should SERIOUSLY consider promoting its tight-knit community a bit more. For example, in Japan R1 admits are invited for alum receptions. On the admitted students' facebook (exactly 150 have registered by today), I can see that these invitations have been sent not only to admits in Japan but also to U.S. admits, as similar receptions are held in various U.S. locations (Chicago, NYC etc.)

The reception in Japan is on March 10th, will update you guys afterwards.

Right after the admission, I was also contacted by the current Japanese students at Tepper. They offered me opportunities to further learn about the program.

I have received great insider perspectives that I had not been able to find anywhere else. I translated these into English, to share them with interested Clubbers as well (with my correspondent's approval).

These responses are detailed, so I attach them as a word document. Hope you find it useful.


I'm sure you have larger concerns at the moment, but eventually it would be nice to know that you, and other Tepper admits that were at the reception just yesterday, are OK. Very disturbing to watch the news from there today, and read the emails that I have been getting from many colleagues in Japan.


Yep, everyone is ok! There was some discussion about it on the Facebook group for admitted students.

Why is there no collective anxiety/excitement going on here? The decision is one business day away. All the other school threads turn into a crazy frenzy I thought. Well I am excited to hear how Monday turns out and am eager to see which GC'ers get in.

I'm pretty excited, and have been exchanging messages with a couple other people I know who applied there R2. We should all get together in the chat room on Monday.


How does one get to said chat room?


On top of the page, in the blue bar that starts with "Home", "Forum", there is an item named "Chat". Just click...

I'm IN...wow!
with $$ too :)

I do love Tepper...the animation was a beautiful touch...and very well done...
Congrats to fellow admits and hopefully GC waitlisters will join us too :)

And we're still quite early in the R2 decisions, so if you didn't get in, keep your hopes up...another school may be preparing your own acceptance letter as you read this :)
Best of luck to all :)


edit: way too many smileys I know...but that's how my face looks now :)

Is an accepted forum worth setting up? Or just wait for the FB group?
You waitlisters should set up a forum, I've been there, and commiseration and strategy are therapeutic.
Anyone have conditional acceptances with math classes to take?


If would be nice to have an admitted thread here for those of us that aren't going public with the news yet (or for quite some time). I won't be able to join the FB group unless I create a new FB account...


It's a private facebook group. Not even facebook friends can see that you're in it. The only people who can are other people in the group.

Hi, I'm new! Just got the accept today with some Forte $. What an exciting opportunity! I'm struggling though as I have another offer of admission from a similar school. I thought I'd get into one or the other, not both. Eek!

Thanks to @cmv for telling me about this board - IRL (if Facebook counts).

Did anyone else attend Women and the MBA Weekend or Connections in October?

I got an e-mail from Tepper today inviting me to the Facebook group. Also, I am officially planning to matriculate. See y'all there!

I probably will very soon. I am a bit late in starting my apps. Got done with GMAT in July and researched schools for a month or so and just got started on the essays. Didn't really have the time to visit the schools.

OTOH, I live in Columbus, Ohio which is very close to Pittsburg (~3 hours) and have visited the CMU campus in the past (Not Tepper in particular). So am familiar with Pitt and love the city.

Are you applying for Fall 2011 too? Have you visited yet?

Any idea if they were from CMU's 5 year program for their undergraduate students? I'm trying to gauge their openness to recent undergrads from other schools.
