You'll get varying answers throughout the school, but I think the general consensus is that its been a positive change. It gives us more flexibility moving forward with our program, and really lets us shape our own education. That being said, we are the guinea pigs, and there were some timing issues, and communication issues the first time around. The best thing we've learned from it, is how open our administration is to our feedback in how to continually improve the program. So, I'm sure that many of the little problems we had this year should be ironed out for the next class.

The way the new curriculum is structured, you sort of get eased into the semester with Block A. Its difficult but definitely manageable. Then, Block B, well, its five weeks of hell pretty much. But, its the first semester of the MBA program, hell has to come at some point right? Then, in my opinion, Block C was pretty easy, and left quite a bit of time for networking, job searching, interview practice, etc. giving you time to focus more on the job. Of course, the idea is to put a lot of information into a short time period, so it feels like you are flying through some classes, but I feel like I have a good base under me to move forward into my electives now. Of course I'm not a pro at finance or marketing after the core, but I feel like I'm prepared to attack more difficult courses, and I can hold my own in a conversation now.

To me, the new curriculum is what I expected, and Yes, we were very busy. But, I was still able to take on a leadership position, compete, and win, a case competition, and find quite a bit of time to enjoy myself as well. Not only that, but I even saw my wife quite a bit during the semester.

In summary, 8 out of 10 for the new curriculum. I think some of the communication and timing could be much improved, but I see and understand the vision. Let me know if you want to know more specificis.

I submitted my Goizueta R-2 application on 06 December
I am an international applicant and did not ask to be interviewed before submitting the application. The status of the interview in the on line center is still initiated
Does anyone know how much time it takes for them to decide if they are going to invite you for a telephone interview ? :shock:

Thanks

Yes i was advised to do so in case they check with other schools (I dont know if they do)
any way it depends of what other schools you are applying for. no school would like to be the backup school (not my original thought i think it was posted here) if your other schools seem like a reasonable choice regarding this school ranking and profile it might even be an advantage.

Congrats Bear! I'm biased, so I think it should be your first choice. Is there any reason, besides typical rankings, that deters you from making Emory your top choice? Have you had the opportunity to visit the campus? Let me know if I can answer any questions for you, or lead you in the right direction. Again, congrats.

Hi - I'm getting ready to submit my app by the Feb 1st deadline. Regarding the interviews, can I schedule one for after 2/1 as long as I've submitted my app by 2/1? Or do I have to complete the interview by 2/1? It says after 2/1, all interviews are by invitation only, but I wasn't sure if that meant if you submit your app after 2/1. Thanks!

Emoryhopeful,

This is a tough year for job hunting. Based on what you know, how are full time and internship recruiting going so far?

To be honest, I don't know the exact numbers. It's definitely tough. Many firms are lowering the numbers they will take, thus the competition is even tougher. So far, there hasn't been a panic felt throughout the campus. I do know that, after the first semester, we had approximately 15% of the 1st year class placed in internships, where that number is usually 10%. Thus, we had placed more before the major recruiting started. Really, the recruiting cycle is right in the middle for first years, so I can't tell. The second years, many have jobs, just not the offers they expected, but some are definitely hurting. If I had an exact figure, I'd give it. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Dude, that's just awful, she would probably rather see you sleep with another girl.

On the application side I got a phone interview invitation yesterday.
I am international from Israel and Emory is one of my top choices so it is a nice weekend
