I am a current MBA student, and chose Kelley over NYU Stern, mainly due to Kelley's lower cost. Since I started at Kelley, I've been blown away by the school's resources and the quality of the instruction, and I now know this was absolutely the right choice for me - regardless of any trivial differences in perceived reputational rank, etc. I did the whole ivy league undergrad thing, and I think Kelley's professors are on par with that, if not better. The biggest surprise for me was the quality of fellow students - a really accomplished group. Some bloggers here have characterized the academies as portals for career changes - I think this assessment is spot on, it gives Kelley a competitive advantage over other schools. As far as the earlier comment about various schools being "on the up": in addition to expected and ongoing quality enhancements, I personally believe all Kelley programs will see a boost from the renovation of the undergraduate school (the graduate center is actually physically connected to the undergrad school). Construction begins this year, and if you look at the building plans (which can be found on the web), Kelley as a whole will be an incredible complex, and should garner considerable attention.

Hi everybody!

I am applying for Kelley in R2.
Just had an interview with the admission staff last Thursday (02/18/2010) via telephone.

What really attracts me to Kelley is its stat in 296 B School from Princeton Review.
Kelley was ranked very high in almost all catagories. And after I did research the school, I become love it more and more.

However, the result is quite unpredictable. I have heard that this year there are much more MBA applicants, in cluding Kelley, is that true?

Does anyone know how long it takes time for a decision to be released after an interview?

Ike38,
I applied R2, visited/interviewed on 2/1/10, and just got an admit email this afternoon. Hope that helps.

Excited to consider Kelley!

WOW !!!

Congratulation tcha5782!!!

If I were you, I would be very excited too!!

This can be implied that I might have wait for about two weeks since I had an interview later than you about 2 weeks. Am I right?

BTW, did you get any scholarship ?

Hi all - Heard word yesterday (via email); I'm in at Kelley! :-D Can't wait to go to KEW!

Last time I spoke with Adcom (which was just this past week), I heard that they will release admissions decisions up until the mid-March notification date. They usually arrive via email and tend to go out in batches (as opposed to all at one time). Hope that helps and good luck to anyone waiting.

Do you mean you just had an interview with Adcom last week?
The process is really fast! ( I have been waiting for one whole week already, but still did not receive the decision.)

Congratulation EmElleDub!

Ike38,
Hopefully you will hear within about the same time frame. It's hard to know for sure because sometimes the order of communication to applicants can be kind of random. However I fully understand how grueling the waiting period is!

All I received was a simple email; I think any financial details will be included in the packet that they said I'll get in the mail next week.

Thanks for your support! Best of luck to you as well.

No, sorry...I called Adcom specifically to ask about the notification process, which is how I found out the information. I know the wait is grueling but I hope you hear something soon. Best of luck to you!!

Still waiting anxiously! I won't be totally convinced I'm not hallucinating the email or misreading it until I get the package.

Right now I'm debating between BU and Kelley. I think the financial aid or scholarship opportunities at Kelley will be a factor but if anybody has thoughts I'd be happy to consider your opinions. BU seems to have gone up in the rankings including overall score in the Economist. Their job placement stats in BW also surpass Kelley (if you include 3 months out, employment offers for class of '09 is 90% versus Kelley's 72%, but Kelley's ranking in BW is still comparatively higher. I think both schools have some great faculty, student body, and decent facilities (although Kelley may have an edge with facility) but the Boston campus and resources are also a big draw. It will be a tough call, I think (tougher still if I ever hear back from my other apps!!)

I plan to be there. Arriving in Indy Fri early PM and departing Sun PM. The carpooling idea sounds kuul. Am not the "tree hugger" type but if we all dont have rent/drive separate cars, why not? I was gonna use the shuttle from Indy to Bloomington, but if a few of us can carpool, we should.

EmElleDub, I think you posted a comment earlier about travel plans. Whatz your status?

Hey - I'm definitely planning to attend KEW. I just made a reservation this morning at one of the hotels they suggested (I just picked blind) and I'm about to make my flight arrangements. I'm flying in Friday late morning/early afternoon and leaving Sunday afternoon. Not sure about the car situation (hadn't gotten that far) but I'm not opposed to car-pooling if timing works out.
