Has any international R2 applicant received an interview invite from Carlson ??


I thought that all interviews were completed long ago? Isn't it kind of too late already? You might wanna to contact the Adcom to initiate an interview


I received the application complete email only on 16th Feb..so was kind of waiting to hear from them for the interview.

I actually received an interview invitation in mid-January (before submitting for R2). From my understanding, Carlson starts sending out interview invitations after they receive your GMAT (self-reported) and work experience information. However, during my interview the AdCom said that they have received more applications this year when compared to last year so they may be just running behind. It is still relatively early in the process so keep your head up. Best of luck!

Any thoughts on the Dean leaving to Michigan and how it would affect Carlson? I'm thinking it won't have an immediate impact (i.e. for the class starting fall 2011) and may not have too much effect on recruiting since the name is strong on the regional level. Thoughts?

I'm in! :-D I think Carlson heard about my Kelley acceptance earlier this week and felt compelled to jump on board. :twisted:

The acceptance was in the form of an email (received just after 11am EST), with a note that I would be getting the official acceptance letter in the mail and giving me login info for the admitted students site.

I thought in the past they pretty much released all acceptances for a given round at the same time, but this seems way to early for that.

Relevant dates:
-1/4 adcom member called me to see if I had any questions on Carlson
-1/12 received interview invite (had started app and sent GMAT, but hadn't submitted app yet)
-1/20 submitted application
-1/25 on-campus interview
-2/7 received email that all official transcripts had been received and file was "complete"
-3/2 acceptance email :-D

I'm actually visiting family out of town so i'm hopeful when I get back home next Monday I will be able to see if I get any $$ at either school so I can really start to get a handle on things.

Best of luck to everyone still waiting.

P.S. Why oh why do the Carlson and Kelley admit weekends have to occur at the same time?

Cheers,
Tom

Congrats! I have my interview this week so I guess they're not waiting for anyone. Carlson still your top choice?

Thanks! :-D

To be honest, i'm waiting to see what the $$ situation looks like. If Kelley or Carlson gave me a full ride, and the other nada, then that might make my decision between the two easy. If it the decision isn't easy from a $$ perspective, I think I will likely re-visit each school later this month, asking to meet with students closer to my specific career aspirations. I'm a very atypical applicant (35yo, unusual jobs, etc.), and for me "fit" is by far the biggest factor so I won't just be opening up USNews and just picking the one ranked higher (Kelley) as that really means very little to me.

The wild card is McCombs. I interviewed there on Monday and absolutely love Austin. If McCombs came through I think it might be very hard to turn down.

Well done on all who've got in! I'm still waiting and have an impending ding from Berkeley so am really on tenterhooks.

Can I just ask: are you admits from Minnesota / wider States or international? (I'm in the UK)

Thanks!

More important might be when the interview was completed. I sent in my application in my Rd. 2 application in early January and interviewed in late January. I'm assuming this is why I was in the first batch of invites.

Anyone know the dates of orientation?

Does anybody know if there were any rejections in yesterday's batch? I have been told by the admissions office that I have been given a decision, but can't access the email because it's been sent to my official Fulbright address - which I am not allowed to personally look at. How frustrating!
