Hi,

I got accepted to Johnson today in AMBA. Was waitlisted in Round 2.
Anyone who is planning to join AMBA?

HAve you heard from them about the starting date of the program?

Thanks


Can you share your background please?


4 years work Ex (3 year Management consulting, 1 year IT), GMAT 760,
Engineering (bachelor and master). Indian citizen.

I am a bit worried cause I might take another 45-50 days to get the visa etc done. and might miss about 2-3 weeks of classes :(


That's strange though! 4 yrs work ex is at par wth avg wrk ex for 2 yr mba. Did you specifically apply for AMBA?

Thanks highwyre237, you rock!

What do most of the students at b-school use - mac or pc? I am a mac, and just wondering if we need a pc?


if you are going to dj, ask around. i asked a few current students about this, it seems both mac and PC will be fine, although mac will not be compatible with a few software add-ons and a few commands. however, someone told me that johnson is updating the email system or something, so the IT will give some more detailed tips later.

How does kroll verify? Do they call reference providers and company HR? I have not told my manager about it and don't want him to find out now, as I am planning on telling him in mid-april as my AMBA programs starts on 5/6



Johnson uses Re Vera not kroll. They will not do anything until after they reach-out to you for payment for the process (i think $75), and you pay. Once that happens I think it takes a few weeks for them to check everything.


thank you, highwyre!

the website says kroll will complete background check before mid-june, but an email i got says re vera will contact me...

just want to get this done asap.

How long does it take Re Vera to contact applicant who submitted a deposit? It has been about 10 days for me.

Did you guys do something special to kick off the ReVera background check? When i filled out the deposit I feel like it automatically went through, but who knows. I feel like there should be more to it. Still havent hear anything and also it was 2 months ago. Maybe I am in the clear? Who knows. Not worried about it though :).

Still have to get my official transcripts sent to Johnson. Doing it now rather than continuing to procrastinate asking for it.

I think ReVera contacts you to pay a fee for the background check to kick off. It seems like no one has received any type of contact so far... So don't worry, we're all in the same boat.

I sent my transcript over around a month ago, but never had any confirmation that it was received... Anyone else send their transcripts over? I wonder if I should make sure it got there.

Are you sure about the 5/6 start date. Here is what Christine's blog says:

"Our next class begins in mid-May, and you still have time to apply (application deadline is April 1)."
