Hi pala, as a Tepper R3 applicant, I recommend that you go to Rotman and here are a numbers to support my case.

GMAT average
Tepper: 686
Rotman: 654

Clearly there are too many smart students at Tepper, it’s far better for you to go where the students are mediocre so you can be a superstar. Learning from peers is overrated anyway.

Nobel laureates
Tepper: 8
Rotman:0

Clearly there are too many smart professors at Tepper. It’s far better for your personal ego to go where you are smarter and more knowledgeable than the prof. Learning from profs is overrated anyway.

Starting salary
Tepper: $105000 Rotman:$85,000

Money doesn’t buy happiness, money is overrated anyway.

Keep in mind that the schools are more than just a collection of number. Let’s take a look at the soft factors that each schools bring to the table.

School environment

Tepper: extremely friendly, from students to staffs, small community where everyone pitches in and contributes. The school’s spirit is evident by looking at all the helpful replies in this thread from current students and staff.

Rotman: extremely competitive peers due to limited options after grad, back stabbing is part of the culture at U of T, check out the Rotman thread to see how many of their current student cares about the incoming class. Some staff are rude and obnoxious.

Who the heck wants to be in an environment where you are surrounded by good people. It’s far more fun to backstab your classmates before they can stab you. This is REAL WORLD corporate training and you’ll be way ahead of the curve upon graduation.

On behalf of all the Tepper R3 applicants, please go to Rotman, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

One of the two below would be mine. Much like my school dilemma, I haven't decided

Hi guys! Anybody knows at what time Tepper will start sending decision emails? Do they send financial support or scholarship information the same day?

It's the last decision I'm waiting for, I already have admits and partial scholarships from McCombs and Ross. I'm dying to know and make a decision. What do you guys say in McCombs Vs Ross Vs Tepper? I'm interested in entrepreneurship and social entreprise.

I can only comment on Ross vs Tepper throw down. I'd vote Ross for those two.

I know, i know, I haven't decided yet but i'm interested in operations, management science, and to a lesser extend consulting.

Tepper beats Ross in Ops and Management science but I think the brand of Ross is stronger than Tepper.

I like the smaller class size of Tepper for my money to be honest. I think you would probably get more attention and help to find your direction.

Ross is a great general management program with a lot to offer but it is bigger and you have to figure it out for yourself. More companies recruit at Ross which could help you find a job easier or get lost chasing everything that sounds interesting.

Ross has a greater focus on leadership training and communication (although Tepper just added it to the new Curriculum for the 2014 class)

I am not suggesting big class sizes equates to less attention or help but since I am considering these schools I am taking it to that level!

Has anyone have got the mail

Folks, we have all been waiting for our decision for a while. It’s been excruciating. To give some advice from experience, try to get away from work tomorrow. If you have to work, try to get outside and enjoy the day. There is nothing we can do at this point. We’ve all put our best foot forward with adcom and it’s in adcom’s hands. Pray if you’re religious. If not, do some yoga or find some peace somehow.

I appreciate all of the posts on this thread. I am sure that we are all qualified to get the admit, and I am hopeful that we all will. For those of us who don’t, life will go on. And if it doesn’t happen for us, we can make a great plan to reach our goals next time. That’s the great thing about the b-school process, there’s always another battle to fight as long as we’re up for it. And the all-stars on this site will ALWAYS be up for it!

Best luck to all,

The overall experience was good. But I am not sure how to judge the interview. As they were all general questions asked to everybody, I couldn't tell if it went well or not. She was smiling and seemed quite happy with my responses if that means anything.

Yay for getting R2 apps in! I just wanted to post a word of encouragement regarding the interview invite wait.

Don't be discouraged if you don't get an interview invite as soon as others! I was really surprised when two people posted that they received an interview invite only 5 days after R1 deadline (good for you guys!). And then I was a little disappointed and started questioning my app. But thanks to the encouragement of current students on the thread...and also from reading the 2011 thread, I see how invites really do come out in an almost constant trickle.

I got my invite about 2-3 (closer to 3, I think) weeks after the R1 deadline. Interviewed and got accepted with $$. So hang in there, and best of luck!!! _________________ Get a peer review for your essays: peer-review-service-for-essays-132830.html Intern Joined: 28 Nov 2011 Posts: 5 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 7 [2] , given: 0 Re: Tepper 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] ### Show Tags 23 Jan 2012, 17:13 2 This post received KUDOS got invited for interview!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully we get some more turning green here soon. And thanks! I get more excited about Tepper by the day. I just found out about the operations class that partners with AT Kearney to find real life consulting projects (it's so MAP haha). It seems that I'm always finding new trinkets about the school, so it doesn't surprise me that you're still weighing the two -- it's a good problem to have haha.

When I visited and spoke with current students, there was a general hesitancy about the effectiveness of the career center. "They're helpful...but..." sort of thing. I'm not sure how they fare in entrep/social entreprise but I feel that Ross has the upperhand in terms of reputation, resources, and class diversity. You'll find more people with similar interests...or diverse but complementary...to help you out. Re decision emails and financial support, I got my R1 email around 3pm on decision day. Financial info is included. And since you have admits/$$ from other schools, do not be afraid to NEGOTIATE - it works if you can make a good argument. They gave me a 50% increase in my scholarship money after a few friendly emails.

GOOD LUCK!

Sure, I think a lot of your points are spot on. I haven't heard anything that purpleshirt's heard about the career center, so I can't comment much on that. My job search was always going to be self-initiated, so I never looked into it.

I think entrepreneurship is a huge bucket. If you have a really solid idea, it might depend what your idea is centered on or how it's delivered. CMU is (obviously) a big time computer science and engineering school, and offers the James Schwartz fellowship which will place you with an existing startup or tech company. There's also a program that will fund you working on a startup over the summer at CMU, but its name escapes me at the moment. I did get a sense of, and bought into, Tepper's connections to the Bay Area. McCombs owns Austin, which has been and continues to be a massive launching pad for tech startups. Ross has Zell Lurie and a lot of funding challenges and incubation space through TechArb. Plus, it's one of the strongest universities in the world across the board, so if you are looking for partners in non-tech spaces, it might be a more attractive option. Ross also seems to have a ton of alumni on the west coast, but U of M has a ton of alumni everywhere -- lets be honest lol.

Social enterprise is also another huge bucket. For the things I want to do, which revolve around public service through governmental and nonprofit organizations, the interdepartmental institutes at Michigan are AMAZING. But if you define social enterprise as a for-profit business that makes its money by solving/improving a social problem, then you're sort of back in the general entrepreneurship bucket really. Ross has the Social Venture Fund, so you can get an inside look at how investors conduct due diligence and choose social investments. CMU doesn't have a huge social rep, but obviously I was willing to go there. Heinz College has a lot of DC-type connections, and is regarded as one of the top public policy and management schools in the country.

Again, it may depend a lot on what specific ideas you seem to come up with. Are they tangible, engineered products? Are they software based? Is it more service delivery? But this is all just to begin splitting hairs and finding a few relative advantages. Ultimately, you will be able to pursue your goals at any of those schools.

1) My undergrad (India) does not have a GPA system of evaluation, how does CMU compare me against those with GPA system of education?

2) I know for those who interviewed can have one of the these decisions today: Admitted,Wailisted,Denied. However for those who haven't had an interview is "Denied" an inevitable update on their application? I deduce because "Admitted" status is ruled out, it doesnt make sense to get "Waitlisted" without an interview so the only possiblity is "Denied". Does my logic makes sense?

Thank you.

1) Yes, they have to, as it wouldn't make sense to only compare you to your fellow countrymen. But, they have years of experience evaluating candidates from many countries. They likely have a rigid process in place to evaluate grades provided by your university.

2) I cant tell about Tepper in particular, but from what I've seen in other colleges, there have been people waitlisted without interview and then later interviewed along with candidates from a later round. So don't rule anything out.

You mean like on MATCH DAY (residencies for med students)? which is also today!! I am always astonished by how the match system works. Anyone else with friends matching today????

Yes, my FB wall is littered with announcements of where people are going! At UCSD (where a lot of my friends are), they have a morning event where they invite loved ones, etc and they all open the envelope together.

On another note, I got into Tepper (with Forte)!

Hi pyarapopat,

I would go for standard fonts like Times New Roman / Arial and font size of 12.
