I just got my invite about an hour ago. I submitted my application either the day before or the day of the deadline.

Now I need to decide where to do the interview. I visited campus back in October, so I'm leaning toward doing it locally rather than flying across country again. Admissions says they're fine with either, does anyone think it'll make much of a difference?

I got mine yesterday as well. I'm interviewing locally with an alum. From what I am told by current students, it really doesn't make a difference whether it's on or off campus. Congrats to all the invites thus far!

Congrats. Has the alumni already responded back to schedule the interview?

Yup, the school responded within minutes with a local alum, and the alum and I agreed on a time this morning.

Awesome. Do you know how long you are supposed to wait if the alum doesn't respond back?

Hopefully, not very long. They do give you all the contact info, so if the alum doesn't reply to the email right away (within a day or two), you can just give them a call.

Oh, for my alum, only an email address was listed. I guess I will wait a few days.

I would give them up until mid next week at least given that this is thanksgiving week and a lot of people are out and not checking emails and phone messages.

Is there anyone who submitted Essay #4 in text format (not audio or video) and was invited for interview?

I'd like to find out one of many reasons for my ever-lasting wait. :roll:

Did everyone do Essay 4 from memory/off-the-cuff, or did you read it somehow? I found it nearly impossible to do it without a script so I used the equivalent of cue-cards. I think it was pretty clear that I was reading. Think that's an issue?

At first I wrote mine out and had it on my computer screen and placed my camera right above my monitor, but it seemed too rigid and obvious I was reading it, so I re-recorded it. The version I used for the application was less polished but seemed a little more natural like I was just telling a story, so I think it sounded better.

Yes, I was offered an alum interview in New Delhi. Asked for a change and was provided one in Mumbai. The adcom member who scheduled the interviews was pretty helpful and understanding.

I haven't received an interview invite and I went on my UCLA application and it says that I will have a decision by the published date.

I dunno - this can't be good?

What exactly does it say on the status? Something like "Submitted for committee review"? or does that not show anymore?

That's the same thing mine still says and I got the interview invite the other day, so it probably doesn't mean anything either way.

Had my alum interview in Bangalore today. The interview itself was pretty conversational and pretty much the standard stuff. Resume Walkthrough, Why MBA/Anderson and Goals. Because of the conversational nature it drifted into other areas of Anderson and my profile.

Good luck to others who have an interview coming up.

No, very conversational. No notes too. No oddball questions, pretty much the standard questions.
