Invited to interview at Goizueta. US Applicant. It appears that they only have weekday interview slots available. Hopefully they add some weekend availabilities.

To those R2's in at Johnson, how long after your interview did it take to see an updated status?

I am a round 2 consortium - Tuck.

Has anyone heard anything from Tuck? I have not received confirmation that they have my information. I keep getting the prospective student emails:
Tuck Application Deadline, Tips for Applying to Tuck... etc.

Just curious - for all of y'all that got admitted to McCombs, have you had any notification email of a status update - basically, has your status being updated to "Admitted" or something like that? I still have no status updates published for me.


When I log in to GIAC there still is no change but when I go to https://mccombs-utexas-admissions.symplicity.com/ it has a congratulatory message with an option to accept the admissions.

I wonder if accepting before the draft will influence their decision (and if so, would it positively impact my chances?) for me to get the fellowship.


Thanks for the information. Yes you are right I see a congratulatory note on this site.

My 2 cents - I think you should wait it out before accepting the admission. Are you applying to other schools outside the Consortium? What did you rank Texas on the apps?

I ranked Texas number 1 and it is my overall top choice for schools. I was thinking the same about waiting until scholarship/fellowship info came out. I was wondering if they may just look upon that acceptance as another reason to hand out the fellowship to me (higher yield of consortium students) or if they'd have the opposite mindset ("this guy is already matriculating, let's try and recruit someone else").

Whoa, just got an invite to interview at Johnson! I was sure that ship had sailed considering how close we are to the deadline (next Wednesday FYI!) Now debating traveling up to Ithaca or Skype...I'm nervous about Skype, I've never used it ever before. Maybe 12 hours round trip is worth not having technology screw with me.

Hi CT2, congrats on the Johnson interview! I did my interview last week via skype. It was only my third time using it too. Honestly it was so worth setting it up and not having to take a trip to Ithaca (unless you are super close). My interviewer was so incredibly friendly and we had a great conversation. A few days later I got the acceptance from Johnson.

I would highly recommend using skype because it really doesnt take away too much from the interview. Just make sure you take the time to practice in front of the camera and also test out your equipment after downloading the skype program. Good luck!

No peep yet, the last official word was that the decisions will start rolling mid-feb.

Thank you so much for the advice! That makes me feel better about choosing the Skype option. I was thinking of going this Sunday for a Monday interview, but I'm in Boston and we are supposed to get a bunch of snow Sunday. I would hate to be stuck somewhere between here and Ithaca. I'm definitely going to practice my skyping skills beforehand! And congrats on the acceptance!

Just got an email from Tuck financial aid asking me to complete the application for Tuck School of Business Scholarships... Did anyone else who applied to tuck through the consortium get this? Is it an automated email or is it an early hint of good news???

Had you completed the scholarship application before? I had asked them before if we needed to complete any additional documents and they had said no; the 500 essay seems like a tall order, especially cause we only have two days!!!

I'll add that I got this email too last year. It's totally automated and has no correlation to your admit chances.

Well, I know they are currently giving out interview invites, because I received one recently. However, Prior to the invite, I did not here anything from them at all. So even though you haven't heard anything, I think there is still hope since they don't seem to give any kind of notification prior to interviews.
