I submitted my appn on 21st October and the status still remains app submitted.
Last year many people got interview invites within two weeks of submission...seems like they are taking more time this year to review applications

Does anyone know if the Flex Time MBA at Tepper begins only in Aug/September or I can start at another time in year as well?

Thanks.

AVbyT- I just did some research on CMU's website and it looks like classes begin only in fall. FlexTime tuition and financial aid section also states fee for only fall incoming students. I may be wrong though.. best would be to contact the admissions team

Hi guys,
I have my interview in 4 days and was wondering if you guys have an idea about how aware is the interviewer of the candidate's profile i.e. is the interview blind or not?

Hey guys, just joined this. I have my interview on Monday.

For those that have interviewed, how and for how long did you respond to that first question, "Tell me about yourself or walk me through your resume?" How specific were you?

It seems like that could be a 5-minute answer, but I would worry about rambling on too long.

Thanks,

Ankit, here you go :)
When's your interview anyway?

Hi guys,
Just got done with the interview couple of hours back. Here are the details I remember:
Mode: Over Skype
Nationality: Indian
Questions:
1) Why MBA/Tepper/now?
2) International experience
3) Any cultural changes faced in working with cross-office team settings
4) Example of issue faced in team work

The questions were slightly more directed towards my profile as I have relatively low work ex. Hope this helps. ATB to others.

On a different note, can someone explain whether Tepper declares results only on the specified date or anytime before that. From what I get from last year forums, it only declares on the specified date but please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks for that :)

How long did your interview last ?

Did you ask any questions ?

AFAIK, they declare all the results via email at the same time :)

ATB dude :)

Best,
Ankit
