Thanks guys!

Here is what the McCombs website says about scholarships:

Quote:
Recruiting ScholarshipsMcCombs annually offers over one million dollars in scholarships in the form of cash awards and tuition waivers. Cash awards range from $2,000 to$10,000 and consist of both one- and two- year awards. In addition, approximately half of these awards are accompanied by out-of-state tuition waivers, which save the student an additional $16,000 per year. Recruiting scholarships are distributed almost exclusively on the basis of merit. http://mba.mccombs.utexas.edu/admissions/finaid/ Senior Manager Joined: 04 Aug 2008 Posts: 377 Followers: 5 Kudos [?]: 28 [0], given: 1 Re: Calling all Texas (McCombs) Fall '09 applicants! [#permalink] 05 Feb 2009, 12:13 I also have the issue with the status page which says that my application is missing a transcript.

[#permalink] 05 Feb 2009, 12:17 Congrats icon. I also got a scholarship -$10k/yr. I was very excited, but I don't want to make a long-term, life decision on the basis of money, especially \$20k over my lifetime. While it should be a factor, I want to attend the best school for me, whatever that is. Tough though b/c it is a huge perk for the near-term...

How long did it take for you admitted folks to get your letter in the mail after the call? Going on 9 days now and just curious if that's par for the course

I got my admit call on Jan 17th. Got a single letter/small envelope in the mail afterward with my admit notification. But nothing else... no admit package, no merit scholarship notification, not even any swag. What gives?

I believe they contact you later with scholarship info if applicable. Don't think the funding pool is set until January and they're just starting to notify recipients (correct me if I'm wrong). How much time did you get before the deposit is due?

I got my admit package in the mail about a week after getting my acceptance call. Nice black leather binder with lots of info.

A couple weeks after I got another letter in the mail which was more of a UT system wide official notification ie "You have been accepted to the MBA program, this acceptance is for enrollment in 2009 only, etc. etc."

The scholarship funding pool was set in January, rsp33, so this week is the earliest that anyone has been notified of a scholarship offer. Myself and a friend who was also offered scholarship, were both contacted via email on Wednesday. As far as I know, that is the first anyone has heard of scholarship, regardless of when you were admitted.

Well, I finally got the waitlist letter in the mail. I thought this was coming so it was not too big of a shock, but three months ago, I thought I had a very good shot of getting in. Oh well, we'll see this summer.

Good luck to the rest of you still waiting!

I think you might not have to wait that long dghazer. McCombs asked many prospective students that were accepted in December to reply by Feb 15th with their decision. While it was a soft deadline (they noted if you needed more time, just to ask) some people that were accepted will be turning down their invitation by this weekend. I would guess that means that in as early as a couple weeks people who were waitlisted may receive calls about getting off the waitlist. Keep your head up.

Plus, an admit at Ross in your back pocket sure does help with any anxiety you might otherwise have had!

Quick tidbit on McCombs application volume this year. Second year McCombs student on the student admissions committee says that they have received more applications through the end of January this year than they did through the end of April last year. Also said they anticipate yield to be slightly down compared to last year so may offer more acceptances this year.

Guys,
Anyone heard regarding the scholarship from McCombs?
They mentioned mid February.

Thanks

Has anyone else had a problem submitting essays through the McCombs online submission form? When I copy and paste from Word, the online form automatically eliminates all my paragraphs, and turns the document into one long paragraph. I can't seem to figure out a way around this problem.

Has everyone experienced this?

I didn't have a problem like that, but you might try pasting your Word essays into Notepad, and then pasting from Notepad into the form.

Here's one for ya - I submitted on the Round 2 Suggested Deadline (Feb 2), interviewed soon after, then just the other day was informed that I am missing a transcript.

The missing transcript is from a 1-year exchange program I did during UG; the courses and grades are included on my main UG transcript but for some reason UT wants a separate official copy straight from the exchange institution. In any case I have ordered it and expect it to arrive the first week of March.

Anyone have any insight as to whether this will hold me back from being reviewed as part of Round 2?

Any chance the AdCom will continue reviewing my app without the offending transcript?

Add another one to the waitlist! They sent me one of those restaurant pagers and will buzz me when a spot opens up.

I'm now waiting for UT and Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt told me "end of March", however UT didn't specify a window. I'd assume it would be at least end of March (?).

I wanted to know for those that have accepted have they gone through the Kroll verification process. I wanted to get an idea of what to expect and how much it costs so that I can build that into my overgrowing business school budget.
