I didn't see this question answered anywhere in the thread: KF lets you schedule your own interview, but do they also send out interview invites to applicants? Or is the applicant 100% responsible for scheduling his/her interview, regardless of whether he/she knows that the adcomm hasn't already rejected their application?

Well I received an email from the adcom asking me to schedule an interview when they were visiting India. I hadn't submitted my application then. So I guess the applicant is responsible pretty much for scheduling an interview. This was just in my case.

Would anybody happen to have any advice on getting feedback on a rejection? I'll probably wind up at McCombs now, but I just want to hear it back from UNC for my own peace of mind. My application status are starting to look like a Christmas tree!

I scheduled my own. The whole process is a little strange to me, but maybe it helps the adcom better understand the entire applicant pool before vetting applications that would otherwise be dismissed without an interview invitation. On the other hand, it's strange to go into an interview at a top-20 MBA program with 1,800 applicants knowing that 100% of these applicants will have the opportunity to interview as well.

Someone please correct me if I'm misunderstanding the process.

Hi Guys,
What is the exact wording of first essays? On first page (GMATCLUB) wording is different than the wording on KF admission website.
Any idea??

I think there was a thread somewhere else with this same question. I believe the GMAT club quote of the question clipped some of it off. When in doubt, definitely go by the school's website.

Like all MBA programs they probably have a lot of people pinging them for additional information. The first step I would say is to just email the recruiter you've been in touch with and ask for some feedback. If you don't get anything at that step, and you definitely know you are going to another school, you could call the adcom office and ask, don't be overly pushy or anything, just let them know you'd like some feedback on how to improve your application etc. If neither of those work.... then I'm not sure, short of showing up at a recruiting event :)

Hi Guys,

Please can you help me understand how best to tackle the interview questions like Why MBA? What is it that the interviewer is looking for in this question?

Also how is it different from 'Why KFBS?' and 'What are you short term and long term goals?'

Thanks,
Ash

One more question that i wanted some clarity on ...
What role do you play in a team?

What exactly are the Adcoms looking for in the answer...my current role is a business analyst. But i am not directly leading teams as such...
Thanks,
Ash

My manager is not able to submit my recommendation. The page throws an error saying "Address Line 1 should not be blank", though the address line 1 is not blank. Has anyone else faced this issue?

Hi UNC applicants! FYI if you're applying to UNC through the Consortium Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), hop over to the Consortium 2012 Forum and Update Your Profile to join the Consortium roll call.

It's simple. Just select your school as "Consortium, the", then indicate which specific institution(s) you'll be applying to, make sure your application cycle is 2011-2012 and the Consortium round (CGSM1 or CGSM2) you be applied in. You can do all of this easily through the handy 'Add to Your Schools' link on the front page of the Consortium 2012 Forum.

We have a special analytics specifically for those candidates applying via Consortium and lots of conversation specific to Consortium candidates and the school(s) they are applying to.

Come and join the conversation! Cheers!

The number of applicants in R3 must have been way below what they forecasted. I received the following quoted letter earlier today.

Quote:

We encourage you to complete your application to UNC so that we can consider you for admission to our Fall 2012 enrolling class. We want our classes to comprise broad ranges of career and life experience. We appreciation [sic] your consideration of UNC Kenan-Flagler and do not want to miss this opportunity to evaluate your candidacy.

We will issue our third round of admission decisions on March 19. If you submit your application by the end of January and complete your admissions interview by mid-February, we can still consider you for round three and give you a decision on March 19.

You must reply to this email in order for us to create your application fee waiver. Upon receipt of your reply, we will provide you instructions on how to proceed with the waiver. We hope you will continue your application and submit it by January 31.

I changed my target round from R3 to R4 on the website when I realized I wouldn't be able to complete a worthwhile application in time. I wonder if I can still submit before that date and still be considered. This probably wouldn't be appropriate issue to bring up to them...I guess It's worth a shot regardless...thanks for posting!
