Well as per the application you have to show the availabliltiy of funds for atleast the first year which amounts to USD 63000. So you need to mention the sources from where you would get these funds and for that different options are given in the application.

I applied by the Jan. 5th deadline, already interviewed in late October. Good GMAT, poor GPA, decent work experience (4 years at matriculation). Keeping my fingers crossed... waiting is brutal.

They extended the R2 deadline so I'm applying to that round (phew!). Something about the program/people keeps drawing me back to Kelley so its moving up to the top of my list.

I find the deadline extension interesting. It goes along with my theory that applications as a whole are way down this year, especially when you get outside of "Ultra-Elite" and "Elite" territory. I had my application fees waived at five of the six schools I applied to (including Kelley) which I found very surprising. This is also the vibe I have received during the interactions I have had with these schools whether it be during visits or email/phone conversations.

During the 2008-2009 application cycle Kelley had ~1,500 applications, an acceptance rate of 31%, an admissions "yield" of 48% and a matriculating class of 227. During the 2009-2010 admissions cycle Kelley had ~1,200 applications, an acceptance rate of 42%, an admissions "yield" of 41% and a matriculating class of 209 (8% decline). When I visited the school it was mentioned to me that Kelley wants around 225 people in each incoming class. I could understand how you could say that two years ago was an anamoly-type year but if this trend continues Kelley is going to have to continue to raise its acceptance rate which won't be good for rankings purposes. So the deadline extension makes sense to me if the trend is indeed persisting. I'm sure this is the case at other schools, too.

Is the information I have just mentioned really that pertinent -- no -- but it is worth noting. If anything it should give folks a little more confidence. Perhaps I am completely wrong, but it just seems that non-Elite schools are a little more eager for applicants than usual.

Best of luck with your Kelley application. I had a great time visiting the school and agree with your statements about the quality students/staff.

Hi everyone

I applied late on Jan 4th (a day before the original R2 deadline..which I guess was pushed back per earlier note in this thread??).

Anyways, I got an interview invite via email within the past hour. I am very excited. It is my interview invite of the season Kelley is my top choice.

For interview options, basically you have two: visit campus or skype. I'm definitely going to do a campus visit for it, just need to figure out what interview timing works best with my schedule.

I have such a unique background (I can guarantee that no one is even remotely close) that I'm a bit wary of posting too much, but I will say:

GMAT: 710
GPA: Above 3.0, but not good by any means. Very strong upward trend.
Age/Nationality/Ethnicity: Old American Caucasian;-)
WE: Have never worked a day in my life at a "traditional" MBA feeder job or occupation.


Cheers,
