Is the interview blind?

This might be too late to help you, maybe some later R1 interviews and people from R2 can benefit from this - the interviews are blind. The head of the admissions committee announced this to the Women's Forum group so I don't think it's a secret - a lot of schools do it that way so it's pretty standard.

My interview was even more blind than I was expecting, my interviewer hadn't seen my resume. He explained that the admissions committee thought it was more fair that way, that the interview is a second opinion on you (that is unbiased by having already reviewed your application) from someone that knows the program about as well as anyone (a 2nd-year student if you interview on campus). They're basically trying to assess whether they think you're a good fit, whether they can easily see you fitting in to what they know are the culture and demands of the program.

Good luck to everyone that has yet to interview for R1, and all you R2 people that have your deadline coming up! And for those of us waiting for decision week, just try not to dwell on it. :-D

PS: Don't forget to update your profiles to reflect whether you've applied, received an interview invite, interviewed, etc. The stats at the beginning of the thread are only interesting to the extent that they're accurate.


Quick qn abt profile update. Where do you update the interview status? Mine still says requested but I finished my interview with an alumnus a few days ago. I wrote to the adcom folks and they said I didnt have to do anything and its my interviewer's responsibility.

I meant your profile here on GMAT club, so that the stats you can see on the first page of this thread are accurate. Nothing to do with the school itself. Sorry for the confusion. You can update your profile by clicking on the "My Profile" link at the top right corner of the page.

Hi McCombs applicants! FYI if you're applying through the Consortium Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), hop over to the Consortium 2012 Forum and Update Your Profile to reflect that you are applying through the Consortium.

It's simple. Just select your school as "Consortium, the", then indicate which specific institution(s) you'll be applying to and the Consortium round you'll be applying in. You can do all of this easily through the handy 'Add to Your Schools' link on the front page of the Consortium 2012 Forum.

We have a special analytics specifically for those candidates applying via Consortium and lots of useful tips for your application and assessment of your candidacy.

Cheers!

I submitted my application on 12/5 (the round 2 deadline) but wasn't able to pay the application fee or upload the second copy of my transcript to the GIAC until 12/6 when I received the email from graduate admissions. I assume I will still be considered for round 2 since my application was in by the deadline but my fee wasn't yet paid, but has anyone been able to confirm this via the website or speaking with the admissions department?

Thank you

Don't worry, you will be considered for R2, this is just the weird way the McCombs admissions work.

Will all R1 decisions come in on the 19th or does McCombs typically start sending some out beforehand?

Difficult to say, unfortunately. For starters, the website actually says "the week of the 19th," so in theory it could be anytime next week.

Additionally, this is the first time in recent history that Texas has used a standard Round method of applications instead of their previous rolling application method. That being said, there isn't any information from previous years to go on since there weren't any deadline dates previously, as far as I know.

Here's hoping they start on friday for a great start to the weekend!

I'm not expecting anything until Monday at least, and yes it could be anytime next week. They purposely didn't narrow it down to a specific date, probably just to give themselves some breathing room to make sure they can notify everyone in that time and nobody freaks out because they didn't hear anything either way on any particular day.

I was waitlisted as well.

The admissions committee has said that once you're waitlisted you can let them know if anything meaningful changes with your application - if you are promoted, retake the GMAT and get a better score, maybe even submit an additional recommendation, make sure they're aware of your continued interest. Anything that would remedy any weaknesses in your application can't hurt.
