No reply as of yet but i wouldn't expect to hear something until at least next week. Their response date for the Nov 1 application target is Dec 19 - and at the interview I was told they are striving to get responses out before the holidays, but it could be early after the new year.

A bit late to be asking, but how did the interview go? Most of the Merage interviews tend to be very, very, pleasant.

They tend to give the GMAT a lot of weight when giving out scholarships, so I'm fairly certain that if you do get an admit, you'll get a significant scholarship.

That doesn't mean that you are out of the running. However, you your chances of landing a sizeable scholarship would be much better if your score was in the 700s. Your quant score is pretty good though. You might want to consider retaking the GMAT if you get an admit w/o scholarship. I'm jumping the gun though; it's a bit early to be talking about what-ifs.
How did the interview go? I remember mine from a couple of years ago. I didn't know what to make of it. I felt that I was screwing it up, but the interviewer kept responding to each answer with a "ok, that's great. wonderful". I'm assuming she sensed that I was nervous and was trying to get me to relax :)

I thought the decision by date is 17th. I am surprised that they are taking this long. But I guess we will hear at least something back next week.

Not sure what to expect after a somewhat puzzling interview, but good luck to me and everyone else!

Honestly, i thought that the interview went quite well.It was quite casual and the admissions director is just so awesome.She brought along a contact of another Indian female at Merage and asked me to speak to her so that i feel even more comfortable about joining the school.But you never know..fingers crossed!

These are some of questions which I can recall

1. Why MBA , Why Merage
2. Short term/long term goals
3. Leadership activities
4. If admitted to all schools you have applied to? What would you do?
