When should Round 3's expect to hear about interviews? I know the deadline is April 24th but when do invites start going out?

All invites go out at the same time on the same day. So April 24th is the only day invites go out. They go out at 9 am CST if I remember correctly. you'll get an email.

Hey all,

Just wanted to thank this thread for all the help. And If anyone’s interested in participating in an MBA Admissions TweetChat, there’s one taking place on Wednesday, April 17 @ 1 PM EDT, hosted by admissions officers from ESADE and The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

http://mba.com/mbachat


See you all on the tweetchat!

I seem to remember that someone (Cheetarah, perhaps?) mentioned that though many people got money/scholarships as soon as they got the admission call, other fellowships come down the pipeline later. Does anybody know when that might be? If it's sometime before the deposit deadline, that could help make my decision a bit easier!

Last year it was about 7-10 days prior to the deposit deadline. I found out about my fellowship on the actual deposit day, so there isn't a hard cutoff date that I know of. It might be different this year. If you've already applied to any of the available fellowships (that require an app) you should hear pretty soon.

Yeah around 1200 flights at ORD cancelled - weather is pretty bad. 3 of the main freeways in Chicago were / are shut down due to flooding so even getting into / out of the city is a nightmare. It's supposed to be better tonight and tomorrow but I imagine it will take a while for them to catch up on the cascade of cancellations and delays given that a number of flights were cancelled yesterday too.

Good luck!

Hi ak2012 - a bit off topic but I'm curious as to what your criteria were for your ultimate decision on Booth vs Sloan?

Thanks all!

I'll be heading out to Chicago for the interview. Any must do/must see things related to Booth that I should be aware of.

Walk around the rest of campus (the non-Booth part). It's truly spectacular. Go to the Loop near where the Boothies live. Sweetwater Tavern is a decent bet. If you're there on a Thursday, find out where the TNDC will be that night.

No. Most people do not get invites. The vast majority of the applicant pool is not posting on GMAT Club.
