MSU looks awesome, I know I'm not the only one applying, anyone else care to share some thoughts on the application process? I have already submitted and interviewed, hoping to hear something soon. Please share your experience.

I'm considering their weekend program in anticipation of dings from Haas and Kellogg.

I really like the format, but I don't like the ease of admission and the fact that the entire student body is basically from Michigan, (where I don't want to be when I graduate).

I applied to MSU for their really strong supply chain management program. Sent in my application in Round 2 (January) and heard back extremely quickly, within a week, for a skype interview. I am pretty sure I did horrible on the interview, but as of now I haven't heard back from them. It's not my top choice of school, mainly because of location, so I have been on the fence about it for a while. Recently I got an admit from my #1 choice, so... there you go...

Good luck to you all applying there!!!

Yeah the location is tough, but you don't have to get a job in MI. The two students I talked two were both going elsewhere for work (NYC, Chicago) and MSU seems to have a strong regional pull (Bweek profile). I'm planning on staying in the midwest though so I suppose that skews my thinking, and I don't know anything about their weekend program, but good luck to you.

I havn't heard anything back either and recieved a similar response after the applicaton. According to last years stats if you get interviewed you have a 64% chance of getting an admit, because only 45% were interviewed. Not sure if they are sticking to that policy this year though. Congrats on your #1 I guess you can relax now, good for you, I'm still anxious.

I am curious, where were you able to find those percentages? At first look, it doesn't seem like something a school would to publish.

Anyways, I received an email from adcom asking me to give them a call. Wonder what it's about. Will update soon :-)

Hey joytastical,

Check out the link I posted on the first message, businessweek profile. They publish the # applied, % admit, and % interviewed. 100% admits were interviewed, and only 45% of the total applied were interviewed. I was hoping to get a call today, kept my phone close. At 6pm my time I went to the gym and left my phone in the car, sure enough got a voicemail from MSU adcom. Gonna call back tomorrow, wish I had my phone on me!

Congrats. How did you find out? I just found out the head of admissions left me a voicemail earlier and I haven't been able to get a hold of him since.

I wasn't able to reach anyone at the office when I called, so I had to leave a VM, but later I got the decision in my email box. Admit!!

Congrats, mbanimal!!

Hey I think the $$ info was sent with the official admit letter in the mail so we should probably get it early in the week. I figured I would have got it last week, but I havn't gotten anything yet. I'll post something if I do
