Guys I am withdrawing from Kelley, I love the school but another school has come through late in the game with a big offer.

Today I also received a letter from Tim giving me more Fellowship money so that should be released shortly.


I would like to point out a couple of timelines here which have me questioning the merit based aid process:

Applied R2, Interviewed, Admitted with GA ($37.500, over 2 years, 12 hours of work per week)

I decided I was going to ask for some merit based aid.

A buddy who had a scholarship @ Kelley informed me that the notification date for scholarship recipients was April 15th, I timed my request for more aid around this deadline with the hope that some would become available.

I emailed Tim on Apr 12th

Tim never got back to me. After 10 days I left him a voicemail, still no response.

The following week I get a generic email from my interviewer asking if I had any questions etc. To which I replied with the timeline above regarding reaching out to Tim.

My interviewer gets back to me two days later with a "unfortunately all money is tied up."

Still no word from Tim

By now its Apr 25th a few days before the deadline. I wait a couple days then ask for an extension, which is granted.

Shortly after I leave the Facebook group for admits which is run by a current Kelley student.
(I dont really think this makes any difference, but now it does look like I will be withdrawing)

Two days later (today) I get letter from Tim that says I have been awarded 30K over 2 years.

Here is the other schools story which I will shorten:
Admitted w no money ---> ask for extension, 2 days later BIG money offer.

Thoughts:

I think schools at and around Kelley level are scrambling to fill their class. Apps are down and they are throwing money at people, if played the right way. To me that revolves around asking for an extension and notifying them of the other offers.

I have never been one to game schools and am fortunate to get any aid anywhere, this last couple of weeks has me questioning the process though. If I had not asked for the extension and paid the admissions deposit would they give me the money after the fact? Same with the other school.

To sum it up:
I asked for more money, they said no
I asked for an extension and played like I was going to leave
Here comes 30k out of thin air.

Aren't they supposed to be teaching us about business?

I'm a skeptic at heart, If you follow my posts I'm always questioning what is said in passing around here.

When you get a letter from Kelley telling you money is gone that is flat out Bull.

If there is anyone who has an extension have you gotten a similar letter?

I wonder if you hold out and I withdraw today will you get my money tomorrow?

It has to be a formal attire(Tie and Blazer). Looks really good on the video.

Some tips while taking the interview on Skype:

Make sure there is enough lighting in the room.
Keep a data card(Tata, Reliance, etc) handy in case power goes off!
Make sure the back ground is neat (Curtains with pleasant color or a neatly painted wall will surely help).
Keep your mobile fully charged. Sometimes the Skype may crash in the Adcom's system (has happened to me once :D). Under such circumstances, the interview will be telephonic.
Login to Skype 15 minutes before the interview.
Make sure you have aligned the camera properly.
Make sure you don't give awkward expressions (looks really bad on cam).

Hi,
I received my scholarship info- almost 40K USD per year in GA and scholarship. However, i am some better or equally better offers and am finding it difficult to make a decision. Shall do so within a couple of days.


Hope you decide to come to Kelley. Bloomington is a great place to spend two years.



..since you have Marketer in your username :-D , I just have to say that I had an awesome time when I sat in on a Consumer Insights by Professor Krishnan. He was a very engaging professor and thoroughly enjoyed it. IMHO, it was a good class for prospective students from a subject perspective as pretty much anyone should be able to relate to material in the class (even if they don't have a marketing background like me). Whereas at another Big Ten school I visited, I sat through a Bond Finance class that was about as interesting as watching grass grow.

cheers

I had a self initiated interview on campus back in December. I was interviewed by a student, it went for about an hour and there were no real curve balls, just know why kelley...that was super important because out of all my interviews kelley was the one that really gave me a chance to talk about myself as a potential student and what I was interested in besides my current job, revenues, quant ability....I got the sense that they really stressed having that kelley fit and personality. I really admired that. Good luck.

About to submit application for the March deadline. I was going to wait to hear from a couple of other schools, but kelley is looking better and better. Anyone with a similar profile to mine hear any news they are willing to share? I need to get up to Bloomington and check it out, interviews invite only?


I think you are interested in marketing, and if so certainly Kelley is an awesome place for that. the folks in the marketing academies seem like a very cohesive unit. sort of like a cult, but in a good way :twisted: Kelley definitely has a pretty wide gmat range (as i'm sure you've seen), so I certainly think you would be in the running.

I do think it is uber important to really stress "why kelley", etc., even more than other schools I think. At least that is the vibe that I got. they really want people who want Kelley.

Interviews are invite only at this point. they do have optional self-initiated interviews that prospective applicants can initiate before Jan 1st I think,but after that point all interview invites are done by the admission folks.

Good luck.

Cheers,

Unfortunately, it looks like their adcom just posted a blog post the other day reiterating the mid-March expected decision release date. It was staring at me right when I logged in to my Google Reader this AM, taunting me.

Lastly, we publish our admissions timeline so that you can know when to expect a decision. This timeline is accurate and you should not expect a decision earlier. We do not offer rolling admission. Our admissions decisions are released via email as published.

I got the acceptance also! My first so I am quite excited. I applied on Jan 5th, got the int invite about 6 days later and interviewed on Jan 25th or there about. I thought u bombed the interview, so I guess pol shouldn't assume that a perceived bad interview means a ding.

I have my on campus mccombs interview in 20 minutes. I feel quite a bit less pressure going into the interview

congrats to everyone who got in and best of luck to everyone still waiting

Anybody from R1 know how long it takes to receive the admit package?


I was admit from R1. You should get a welcome letter this week with scholarship info, and a binder of information shortly after that.

Congrats to all the admits today! I look forward to meeting some of you at the Admit Weekend.

Thanks everyone! It looks like everyone is waiting on pins and needles for it and pass the time by replying crazy fast to a new gmatclub post :-)

I got a little bit of money from carlson but not enough for me to switch my choice between the two, even without any cash from Kelley.

So, looks like I will definitely be swinging in for KEW
