Hey, all! I need your opinions about my case.
I had an interview with associate director of adcom on skype. I think I made some mistakes, because could not communicate well enough my interest in the school, and i also did ask only two questions at the end. the adcom was like: that's it? You don't have any questions? I answered that i already have sufficient information about the school, and it is already my number one choice.
Anyway... They have a decision date on 15th May. But I got a voicemail from the interviewer asking me to call back.
They say on the website that they don't email the decisions, and the only way to know the decision is to check the online application. But do they call you to say about acceptance? And it is so soon! I applied 15th March, had an interview on 22nd March, and they called me on 25th march! super fast!
What it all could be about?

Hi,
I had my interview for the MSF program last week. I got a voice mail from Greg McDonald (executive director of admissions) yesterday telling me I got in :D Just received my admissions package today!
I am still undecided about the school though. It would be a lot easier if I heard anything back from Duke.

Anyway, how many people here will be joining the masters of finance class this year?

I think i'll send mine in sometime next week. That is if I can come to a decision! Rossyjr did you apply for the MS Finance program? If so did you concider any other schools and why did you decide on Simon ?

I did consider a couple other schools before the application process but Simon was the only graduate school I applied to. My professor of Econometrics nominated me for the early leaders scholarship and after finding out it was one of the top finance programs in the country it was an easy decision for me. It was an easy decision because a lot of young students go there (Im 22 and a graduating Senior @ Ithaca College in upstate NY, and Rochester is only 2 hours from my home where i still coach my younger sisters sports teams! I applied to the MBA Finance program but eventually switched in to MS Finance after talking to a lot of people. The faculty at Simon are phenomenal and know how to get information across. They have recently dedicated the program to aiding in job searches instead of preparing for interviews which I believe is more important. The students that come out of Simon are also very happy with the program and remain close to other Alumni. Being close to home and getting a scholarship was just too appealing to pass up and although applying to one program was stressful it helped knowing where I wanted to go.

I have decided on Simon too. The talk with Greg and the revamped Career management center were major factors for me. I will be sending in my $1500 deposit early next week. Very happy to have chosen Simon, finally after talking to so many people I have made a decision. I did my undergraduate from the Rochester Institute of Technology so really looking forward to heading back to ROC :) Anyway I hope to see you in Rochester.
