Hey Sridhar,

It is a common knowledge that if you pursue SCM/marketing/sales in the US- getting a job is a bit easy. For finance and consulting- getting a job in the US is a bit difficult mate.

I was reading a chat transcript of Kelley adcom guys and found that international students have a tough time getting jobs.

The adcom guy goes on to say that international students are sent back to their country and are called after 2-3 years on a L1 Visa!!!

http://www.accepted.com/chat/transcript ... elley.aspx

"Many employers are moving forward with initiatives to send foreign-born MBAs back to their country and bring them back to the US under an L-1 visa a few years later."

Given the condition of the Indian middle class, how can we even think of returning back to our country? Who will provide us jobs and who will repay the debt?

Mouse, I heard that for Indians, getting jobs in Marketing, Investment Banking and Consulting is difficult. But Finance isn't that difficult.

Deepak,

The questions were standard ones. why mba, why kelley, goals, etc.

The interviewer made me feel very comfortable.

Don't panic. Keep your cool and be yourself.

Refer to tips given by me in this forum on taking interview on skype.

Hi Deepak,

@sridhar - what did the interviewer told you about the final decision?? I was told that it would be out by mid march - now thats too late. Can we email them and ask for some kind of timelines??

He said the same to me as well. But, since Kelley is a reputed schools, I guess it takes time for them to do the selection. It seems our apps will undergo 2 more rounds of screening.

No point in emailing them I feel.

I don't think it is slower than any other comparable school. Heck, some schools look like they are still sending out interview invites 2 months after the application being finalized.

Personally, I would just hold off on contacting Kelley. It shouldn't be that long.

The official release deadline is March 15th, which is the same as last year. Application decisions started going out on Feb 26th last year, so that might give some sort of indication of this year.

I had the same feeling after each one of my interviews. Keep your head up. You never know....were you asked qs you did not expect or why do you say you did so bad?

I did not feel that it went the way I had hoped. After the interview I felt that I could have given better answers for certain questions.

thmgoodw,

Thanks for the encouragement, I'd like to make it up there soon. Suppose I should relax on waiting for an invite seeing as they took awhile last round. Good luck to the earlier round applicants. I took a chance and wrote a mini-screenplay for their #3 essay (the one about the cross-country roadtrip with any 3 people in history). Not sure how that will go over. I was so sick of writing the same old essays that I had to try something different.

@ingoditrust

Hello friend.

I had a great interview but W/L at UCLA

I had an interview similar to yours at Kelley but I have an admit with schol

so don't worry.

Expectation reduces joys of life.

Drop me a Private message and I would add you up on Gtalk/FB/Skype/Yahoo so we could network before we reach college.

Regards
A.
