Guys, does applicants who already have scheduled an on-campus interview on their own get an official interview invite as well?

I am sorry, I don't get your question :

Do you mean

1) They have sent you an invite for an on campus interview for a particular date ?
OR

2) Are you requesting them to schedule it on a date for your preference ?

Check out my post on the previous page for some info on ON-Campus interviews !

Thanks,
Ankit

Was just wondering if Tepper sends any confirmation that your application is complete or directly sends the interview invite? My status still shows application submitted

They don't send out any confirmation email for the same, although you can keep checking your app status regularly.

They will directly send out the interview invite, and the status may change to - Application Complete Pending interview ( from last years thread )


Thanks,
Ankit

Sharing a few posts from last year threads :

Questions:
1. Tell me about yourself
2. Why MBA
3. Leadership style
4. Lesson from teamwork
5. What do you do outside of work
6. What do you want to highlight in your application

*****************************/************************************

Hey everybody, I haven't been active on this forum yet but I just finished my interview this morning so I thought I'd share my experience.

First off, my interview was with Lauren Capone. She was extremely nice, informational, and easy to talk to. Questions:

1. Tell me about yourself academically and professionally starting with undergrad and leading up to now.
2. Why an MBA now?
3. Why a Tepper MBA?
4. What type of leader are you?
5. Biggest perceived weakness in your application and what steps are you taking to address it?

**************************************/***************************

I'm a Consortium applicant, so I did my interview with Linwood Harris on Wednesday.

1. Tell me about yourself
2. Why MBA?
3. What have you done to support the Consortium?
4. Leadership and teamwork examples
5. How are you going to hit the ground running at Tepper?
6. What do you do outside of work?
7. Any questions for the interviewer?

30 minutes on the dot.

****************************************/************************


Had my interview yesterday with the Adcom member. The questions were

1. Tell me about yourself
2. Why and what do you want to gain out of an MBA
3. Why Tepper
4. How would I contribute to Tepper
5. What do I do in my free time

The interview lasted exactly 30 minutes including the questions I asked her.

*****************************/******************************


Hope you do find them useful .

Thanks,
Ankit

Hi all,
Do you think (if a re-applicant can guide, that'd be great) the Tepper invites are based on just the Resume or the overall application i.e. including essays.
What I am trying to assess is if my essays were considered decent by the adcom as I got the invite (so I may use those stories in a similar/related essay of a different college).
Let me know what you guys think.

Now it looks like it was just based on Resume and work experience from the application.

I got an email a few mins back sayin that my application is complete and under review; meaning I reckon they fully opened my application only now.

I think the status will remain the same until your done with the interview.

Or probably did the status take a while to change ?


Have you scheduled your interview?

thanks,

I scheduled my interview a few days back. The status just changed.

So I think, they first do an initial review before they send out the interview invites, and later do a thorough review.

Hmm, I see. From previous threads it seems the status changed to Stage 2 - Application Complete, pending interview.

Though one of the applicants' status was -Stage 3: Credentials Received - Appication Under Review by the Admissions Committee (without the interview .)

So it seems the status remains the same till the time ad-com reviews the whole application.

When is your interview ?

All the best :)

Do let us know your experience :)

Thanks,
Ankit

Thanks! A little low on the GMAT though.

I still havent got an invite for an interview. Infact the status on my App hasnt changed from submitted yet.

Am i missing something,do you think? Or does this mean that they havent yet begun to review my App? Have many people received invites for interviews yet?
