Hello all.

I am in for R2 and interviewed a few days ago. Great admissions people at Olin. It is quickly making its way to the top of my list. The interview was very conversational. The questions were the same basic MBA interview questions and the interviewer seemed very interested in getting to know me through my responses. Hopefully, I will receive an admit.

My humble profile: :)

GMAT: 660
UGPA: 3.04
Work Experience: good w/ leadership
Extra Curricular: good w/ leadership

Of course

What attributes will you bring to the program? What is your biggest weakness? What is your management style? Name a challenge you had to overcome as a leader? Why Olin?

There may have been some other questions, but I cant remember. It was very conversational, so it is hard to remember specific questions. But, the above questions were certainly the bulk of our conversation. Please let me know if I can be of any more help.

good luck!

Congrats, Evergreen10!!!
My status is still "In review". Not sure why. Interviews are by invitation only, right? Did you get any scholarships?

Yeah, I actually hoped for a bit more money since I was at their average for GMAT and my GPA was way over their average. Oh well!

I'd say I was fairly impressed with their program, but the main reason I applied was because it was free and pretty well regarded in most rankings. I've since learned that it's super regional, somewhat strong in general management, and has a really poor career services dept. It has gone from a ~640 average GMAT to a 680 in only like a 4 year span - this leads me to believe they offer huge $$$ to people with high GMAT scores (gaming the rankings).

The program is small, it doesn't have a ton of recruiter presence, and most of its students go into finance/accounting jobs in the manufacturing industry. The reported average salary is high, though. And it's probably the 4th best school in the midwest, after Chicago, Northwestern, and (arguably) Notre Dame.

Kelly is a good school, too. Probably has a better rep with recruiters but it's also far more remote than Olin so quality of life is likely worse for two years. Kelly is one of those schools (like ND or Purdue) that would likely be much higher in the rankings if it weren't in a country town super far from a metro.
