I had my interview today over skype. It was with a 2nd year student, very conversational and friendly. Normal questions:

a. Walk me through your resume and a few follow up questions
b. Why Kelley?
c. Describe what it takes to be a good leader and how do you fit with that description?
d. Describe a time when you were creative.
e. Talk about what you do outside work
f. Q&A.

It was around 45 minutes. I really don't like the skype method, but it was difficult for me to travel to Bloomington right now. I prefer to do it on person, but overall I felt it was ok.

Hi All-
Congrats to all the admits and those about to come!

I am a Kelley first year MBA student and it was not long ago I was making decisions about where to apply and whether to accept Kelley’s offer. After the first semester, I am convinced that Kelley deserves its ranking and probably a much higher one. I know these boards can be a valuable resource as well as an addiction for those in that process so I thought I would offer a few things I have really enjoyed so far to help feed your need for info.

Here are some of the specific things I have enjoyed about it:

The Core - One of the things I really enjoy about Kelley is it takes the academic portion of the MBA seriously. The core at Kelley is 8 classes. At many other schools the number is only 5 or 6. During the Kelley core, Fridays are not off. I am happy to know that I have worked hard and built a solid foundation that allows me to understand the implications of pretty much any business problem or situation.

Flexibility - I am looking forward to the remainder of the MBA due to the flexibility and depth available in the subjects. Due to the compressed 7 week schedule that begins after the core, you are allowed to continue taking 8 courses per full academic semester. I am planning to do a major as well as two minors and I will still be able to take additional courses in other subjects I am interested in. Many people double major. The depth in offerings will allow me to enter the workforce with much more than a piece of paper.

Me INC - Another part of Kelley I enjoy very much is all of the tools it makes available to students for career development. It is one thing to get a great education but that education is useless if you can’t land the right opportunity. At Kelley, career development begins even before school officially starts with the ME INC program. This program forces you into the process of crafting our own personal brand. The great thing about this process is it allows you present yourself in front of peers before you have to do it in front of recruiters. It gives you practice as well as feedback. And feedback is not to be underrated; it is hard to know exactly how others coming from different background will perceive what you are saying until you hear from them directly.

Academies – It is hard to talk about Kelley without mentioning the academies and rightfully so. I have enjoyed my academy in that it has allowed me to work on specializing skills, my brand and my network. The academy could probably fill up a post in itself but suffice it to say that I have found these to be a very valuable resource in helping me develop a network for potential internships, as well as prepare me for the interview process through mock interviews, peer coaching and resume reviews.

I could keep going, these are but a few of the things and opportunities I have truly enjoyed at Kelley. It is definitely a well-rounded and thought out program with enthusiastic leadership, alumni and students. Once again, congrats to those of you who have already been admitted and I will hope to see you on campus for visits and Experience Weekend.

My one piece of advice when looking at schools that goes for whether you are deciding where to apply or whether to attend is really try to pull back the onion of what is offered at the school. Don’t go off rankings and advertising materials too much. Talk is cheap. Spend some real time and make sure you get the whole picture. Find out who the leadership of the school is. If you are planning to major in a subject, find out what courses are offered in that subject. If you are planning to go into a certain area find out how the school will help you network in that area. If you really want a collaborative culture, find out how the school actually promotes a collaborative culture. If you really want a good job, find out how exactly the school will help you get there. These degrees are not cheap so make the most of it. Hope it helps and Best of luck!

I got my admit email an hour back. I am hoping to hear some good news with respect to financial aid.

@SorayaBT, are you able to access the admitted students website? I never got a call from Kelley informing about my admit.

Got my admit e-mail about an hour ago too. I thought it was kind of strange that they didn't call us, but nonetheless I'm very happy! Hopefully activity on this thread will start to pick up, seems very dead around these parts.

I applied via Consortium Rd.1 by the way.

FINALLY! :-D Congratulations for those who got admitted!

As @vinaynp asked earlier:

I suppose the admitted student website should be accessible short after R1 admission result. In my case, after the email, I got phone call telling me about the admission packet I was gonna receive few days later, financial aid, and a little bit about KEW.

For interview tips:

Just got my invite to interview this morning! I am stoked. My interview is on Tuesday, January 17. Any tips, questions previously asked?


My experience was quite similar to that of @adrianbr. As I talked with @champmag in PM before, the interview was simple - no tricky or super hard questions. I prepared to talk about my background and experience, career goals, why MBA & why now, why Kelley, something about leadership and teamwork -- and questions I got were really in those areas.

1) Tell me about yourself
2) What's your career goals and how you think MBA at this time can support you to reach your goals?
3) Why Kelley?
4) Tell me about your leadership experience.
5) What role will you play in team when you do group assignment at Kelley?
6) Is there anything else you want me to know about you?
7) Q&A

The interview lasted about 30 minutes via Skype. My interviewer was a 2nd year student in AdCom.

I wish you all the second-rounders the best in your application process. Please write me at any time if there's something I could help.

Cheers!

Actually, there is an InsidetheMBA event in Los Angeles this Tuesday. Jim will be the only representative for Indiana on that day, and I guess they decided to interview MBA students around this area. I am kinda freaked about this whole thing to be honest. I am thinking about just telling him I am busy and opt for a skype interview. What do you think bblast? I need your advice!


Gablaze my opinion is it's always better to be interviewed in person. It can be more easy to make yourself standout among others! Doing it via Skype might feel safer to you, but it lacks of eye contact. Prepare yourself and make him so remember you that he gets back to B-town and says 'hey, put this student on the priority pile!' lol :-D

Hi. I also applied in R2 and haven't received any status updates or invitations yet.
But today I've got an email from newtoiu@indiana.edu with a University ID and iStart Limited Access PIN, which is for incoming international students (I am an international applicant). However there is nothing about my application status.

Can someone help me to make this thing clear? Has any of you got such email? Does it imply anything about admission status or do they send it to all the international applicants?


Hi avart,

I'm a domestic applicant, so this may not be too helpful, but I would err on the side of caution and not try to infer anything about your admission status. During my visit, I think they mentioned that they try to interview all admitted applicants. So if you haven't interviewed yet, I would assume that this is just a normal part of the process.

On the other hand, I received my university ID with my acceptance letter, and you eventually use it to create your IU e-mail!

Perhaps some of the international applicants could speak better to what this means, if anything.

Long time lurker here, first time poster. :-)

I applied in R2 as well and just got my interview invite email yesterday afternoon. I'm also an international applicant, and got that same email early this morning. I'm not sure what it implies about admission status, but seeing as how R2 applicants have been receiving interview emails since last week and I just got mine, they are probably still sending them out as they review the applications.

All those who applied in Round2 -

Has anyone got an email from 'newtoiu@indiana.edu' asking you to check your application status and submit Important documents on 'iStart'?

I'm required to submit my Financial documents; but they have not mentioned by when do I have to submit these? Is it alright to submit these after a decission is made or I need to provide these for them to make a decission?

Has anyone submitted any financial proofs? Any inputs will be helpful.

Regards,
Ali.


no, you don't need to submit any documents. I called ad com and they confirmed it.

Congrats gablaze23!
Could you please suggest your location/WE/Interview Date?


Thank you!!

My interview was sometime between the 3rd and 4th week of January. I have 4 years WE and I am located in Los Angeles, CA.

I am pretty sure the first round of interviews were held in California due to a recruiting event here last January.

Good luck rashidmanzar, I'm sure yours will come soon. See you in Bloomington!
