Hey Guys! I am planning to apply to Tepper in Round 3. I know it isn't really a nice idea to apply this late. Just taking my chances. People who applied earlier... can you please let me know how many words did you fit in 1 page... Need a general idea. Thanks

Call out to anyone who has already been interviewed. Can you share some questions / your experience with the interview process? Just looking for some tips to prep myself for it.

Thanks

The email I got says "Your Tepper MBA application is now complete and under review by the admissions team.
As a Round 2 applicant, you will be notified via email on March 18, 2013, when your decision is ready to be viewed. You can log into the online application system at that time to view your decision."... I do not understand.. Will there be no information about the scheduling of the interview?.. Did everyone get the same mail??

I too received the same e-mail today and am wondering if this means that there will be no interview. Has there been any more activity on your application after this e-mail - getting invited for an interview, etc.?

I got the email today saying my application is under review. It came 8 days after my interview invitation. Realistically, I think you still have a shot for an interview until the end of February and even into March. They say you can receive an invite up until a week before the deadline actually, so you just have to keep waiting.

In terms of Tepper interview tips, here are some links that I found:

I JUST got my interview invite literally an hour ago, so they are definitely still handing them out

Is anyone here going to the Women at Tepper MBA day in Feb?

Good news!!! Can I ask when did you submit your application? I submit my right at the round 2 deadline on Jan 3rd. So that might be the reason I hear things late...(At least I hope...)

This wait is killing me. I am (gradually becoming WAS) very hopeful of at least getting an interview invite from Tepper. I have visited the school and enjoyed my interaction with students there.

I didn't get the email that my application was complete until Monday. I now wish I *hadn't* interviewed during the "open period" so I would get some idea of whether they're interested in me before mid-March. It's a long time until 3/18/.

Hi all,

Will interview via skype be video- or call- conference? I scheduled my interview on next 2 weeks and want to know this for preparing my suit.

Nothing at all man.. Waking up and checking the mail first thing in the morning is getting very frustrating...

Hi - I'm an accepted Tepper MBA applicant and have also been accepted to a few other programs. I really liked what I saw at Tepper and it would be my top choice, finances non-withstanding. Unfortunately finances will play a large part in my decision-making. I didn't have any problems valuing an MBA vs continuing my current career track, but I'm having difficulty valuing the Tepper program vs other lower-ranked programs. What would be your choice between Tepper at ~70k and say Mendoza or Kelley with full scholarships? Are the programs that different to justify the $$? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Interest is finance - IM/equity research. Thanks! Intern Joined: 13 Dec 2012 Posts: 11 GMAT 1: 720 Q47 V41 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 6 [0], given: 1 Re: Calling all Tepper (CMU) 2013 Applicants!

The consensus with MBA degrees tends to be that the money doesn't really matter so much when you spread it out over your career. Generally, the higher ranked the program, the better off you are. If you want to be more analytical about it, the Financial Times provides some useful comparison tools. Mendoza wasn't on their list, but I gave it a shot with Tepper vs Kelley http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... 192|287302. Of course, it's just an average, but after three years Tepper grads make about \$20k more a year. Even if you factor in interest, the analysis shows that you make your money back in a few years time.

Again, those numbers are just averages, so you should try to talk to students or alums with similar career interests as you to find out what the opportunities are really like at all the schools.

Good luck!

Good luck!

I submitted my application on 01/02. It was pretty much the day or the day before the deadline. Good luck!
