Just got a waitlisted email. Question...do they ever reject anyone without putting them on the waitlist first? Not trying to offend anyone who may have gotten a rejection letter, but after scanning last year's Mendoza topic all I could find were acceptances and waitlists.

Sorry for not posting earlier. I applied in November (rd 1?) and was accepted in December with $. Notre Dame had always been the dream school for me, however for my MBA I am beginning to think that another school may better fit my career goals (finance, NYC). In any event, good luck to all those that have applied. Notre Dame really is a tremendous school comprised of great people and alumni.

Disclosure, I'm URM/Hispanic which I think has something to do with it. no it is not totally BS.. although it wont guarantee you an admit.. you will mostly get a application fee waiver if you ask for it. yeah, ND is big on encouraging minorities and the hispanic commmunity is quite well represented in each admitted class so far. so that should help.. I got that mail too and although i got waitlisted, i still think the priority candidate thing is not total BS..

You didn't send them your scores, but you probably allowed schools to contact you after the test--which means GMAC sold them your basic info and is why you are getting spammed with business school informational email.

Hey was just interested how you feel all those Southern schools you applied to are more stronger for a job in NYC finance than ND? Good luck the rest of the way.

Allnorway,

I have alumni or current student connections with many of the schools that I applied to which gave me a bit more insight into the networking capabilities of each school in NYC, and more specifically within NYC finance.

One of my undergrad roommates is currently a first-year at Vanderbilt and I knew the school to have had strong connections to BAC. One of my best friends attends UNC as a first-year and has informed me of the support he has already enjoyed by KFBS alumni on Wall Street. I have a few friends that graduated undergrad from Emory and now work on Wall Street, boasting about the close-knit alumni community that they have within the industry. Duke is Duke and has the strongest (ranked) program that I have applied to. Georgetown was the wildcard for me. They have a stellar undergrad reputation on Wall Street and a large alumni base in NYC. The business school has been decently ranked however the new building, faculty additions, and seemingly enhanced emphasis on the MBA program excites me. The DC location also provides for easy access to the school for New York based recruiters. Finally, Notre Dame had been my dream school since childhood and continues to represent many of the ideals that I pride myself upon. However, after speaking with undergrad alumni friends of mine and scouring over employment reports and other reviews of Mendoza I simply came to the conclusion that I felt another MBA program might suit my wants and needs better. I was unconvinced that the ND MBA program takes full advantage of the strong undergrad recruiting and immense alumni base out of NYC. In the end I am sure that the Mendoza School would have been a great experience for me, and I am honored to have been accepted into the ND family, but I feel that another school may offer me better opportunities at this stage of my life and career.

BTW does anyone from R1 have any insight on their interview and just curious if they decided to still ask the case question to applicants this year?

I wasn't asked any kind of case question. I have a feeling they they ask case questions to candidates who have lesser experience or career changers. IF you come of strong on practical experience then i think they skip that part and try and find a different weak spot to ask a question on to watch your reaction and answer to that question..

for me it was my under grad GPA..

I had an interview scheduled for Wednesday, February 2. I received a call from Angela today saying they had to cancel the on-campus interview and they set up a GChat interview. It took a little work, but I was able to get my flight refunded and my hotel cancelled. I tried to push the issue a little to show them that I am very interested, but I didn't want to push too hard. They called me to cancel, not the other way around. Hopefully this rescheduling won't hurt my chances.

I dont think so.. It might even give you the slightest advantage to showcase your true interest in ND. If your ace your interview, everything should go well..

but then, i got waitlisted, I'm kinda in the same boat.. I am trying to show them that ND is my first choice school..
