Here is some interesting information regarding placements for 2007 grads. No real surprises here.

A Goizueta '08 just got a job where I work. He got a very nice deal and he starts in summer--right when I will be leaving. I can tell the CFO is going to groom him for big things!

I was just checking the OPUS web site to see if anything new was posted and there was a link to check my "Application Decision". I was a little nervous when I clicked on the link, but turns out it was good news!

I'm in baby!!!

No call from admissions, just the online status. It says that an official letter will be mailed out this week!!

^^ Congrats man! I know that was the most nervous click of your life, lol.

To the rest, does anyone know when the officers at Emory come back from vacation? I am in Atlanta unexpectedly, and I want to check out the campus and talk to whoever I can. Did I miss something on the website? Thanks for your help.

I would say that they are back in the office today, but not 100% sure about it. I checked my status late last week and there wasn't anything new, so that makes me think that they are back working today.

Here's my brief story:
29 years old with 8 years work experience (good promotions throughout career)
620 GMAT / 3.1 GPA from well known college
Co-own a startup company in addition to regular work (good revenue and profits)
4 years of good volunteer work (some leadership positions)

Just goes to show that the GMAT score isn't the only factor - you just have to paint the whole picture!

Just the OPUS update. It says that an official letter will be mailed to my home this week. Strange that it was just the OPUS update and no email....perhaps they will still call this afternoon. Either way, doesn't bother me!

Congrats MiamiMBA, when do you plan on making your decision on whether you are going to matriculate or not?

Also, I think the admissions officers are on campus today. I received a reply to one of my e-mails over the holidays and she stated she would be back in the office today. So, I think it would be worth going by campus, even though its colder here today than usual.

Not sure yet - I have some other apps still out there, but Emory is definitely my number 1 choice. I think the only thing that would sway my decision is getting $$ from other schools. Even then it would be a tough decision since my wife is here in Atlanta, we own a house, she has a good job, and Emory is such a great school....

I figured for sure that you were in Miami, but I guess I was wrong. Where are you at in Atlanta? Do you live near campus?

I went to Miami undergrad - not really sure why I picked that username. At any rate, we live over off of Howell Mill and Collier...not too close campus, but not too far away either. How about yourself?

Do you guys think I have a chance:

GMAT: Schedule for April 19 - At this point will probably score 620-650 :shock: (But I know I can do better if I stay on track
GPA: 2.8 :cry:
W/E: 9 years (Operations - Printing)
Community: Big Brothers/Big Sisters 3 yrs

Emory is a stretch school, but I'm looking to go be in the Atlanta area. Also applying to GSU.

We live in Brookhaven, near the Brookhaven Marta Station and Mellow Mushroom (I love that place). Miami as in Florida, or Ohio? May seem like a ridiculous question, most would assume Florida, but my brother when to Miami of Ohio so I figured I'd ask.

Its hard to tell with that little of information. Don't get too caught up in the gpa. Mine was 2.88. I think a 2.8 is in the middle 80% for Emory if I'm not mistaken. So really, its going to come down to how different/stellar your work experience and leadership is. Also, a 2.8 at cupcake university in cupcake major is different than 2.8 in a difficult undergrad, in a difficult major. Plus, you could have worked through school, or were involved in sports or clubs significantly. There are explanations for low gpa's. And, as said in PM, if you plan on doing extra classes before applying, that can only help.

Miami as in Ohio -- the real Miami (I'm sure you've heard from your brother that Miami was a school in Ohio when Florida still belonged to Spain)!! Brookhaven is a cool area and I have definitely frequented the Mellow there! Good sports bar that just opened up in Jock's & Jill's old place.

Nice!!! When did you graduate? My brother played baseball there in 2000, 2001 I think. (maybe it was 99, 00). We've definitely enjoyed Hudson Grille opening up. Gives us a close place to go watch games and enjoy a beer or two. Although, if UGA is playing, forget it.

I graduated in 2000 - swam all four years as well. I probably ran into your brother at some point. Small world!

Very small world indeed. I'm sure you've run into each other, or atleast know some of the same people. I used to swim when I was younger, but I got bored watching the line on the bottom of the pool as I swam back and forth during practice. Of course, I was very practical and decided to do distance track, running around in circles over and over. Brilliant!
