Re: Emory 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 17 Jan 2012, 08:21
Would like to seek some views on the short-term and long-term goal essay questions :
Did you include reasons why Emory is a good fit for you in these 2 questions? I have clear reasons why I wanna go to Emory but there are no questions in this year's application that allows applicants to explain those reasons. Hence, I am wondering if it makes sense to talk about those reasons in the goals questions, which at 150 word limit, do call for very precise, focused writing. Hope to get some advice here.
Thanks guys.

Ofcourse, you can and this is where I did it too.

I believe that when you are telling about your goals, it is kind of imperative that you connect them with the opportunities provided at the business school.

The Goizueta essays do call for very focused writing, I think. I brought up some specifics about my fit with Emory in the "why an MBA at this time" and the "what impact do you hope to have as a Goizueta Business School student" essays. I wish I had more time to write about the Goizueta fit in my short-term/long-term essays, but as you say, those are very short. I didn't feel like I could add anything of value about Emory in a sentence to those, so I mostly focused on clearly describing where I wanted to go with my career.

Not saying this is the right approach, just sharing where I ended up. Full disclosure: I still haven't heard whether I was selected for an interview, so I hope you can find a message that knocks their socks off from the start. :)

Also haven't heard anything for round 2 interview invite. :(

Even though they said not to, I contacted admissions this week by email to see what my status was. Very nice response from Pam Lewis, who is their applications manager:

Quote:
Thank you for your follow up regarding your application. Unfortunately, there is no official date that interview invitations are sent. If you are required to complete an interview, you will be contacted directly once your file has been reviewed. Sorry that I don't have more specific information!


I think I'm sunk for R2... maybe I'll get waitlisted and invited to interview in a future round. I'm pretty bummed because Goizueta has a lot of unique features that make it more appealing to me than many higher-ranked schools.

The only other reason I could imagine things are taking this long is I also applied for one of their new center-based fellowship programs. They said applicants will be reviewed for fellowships by late February, but I figured they would make an admit decision in the round you applied then consider the fellowship piece separate. Don't know.

Hello all,
I just had my interview this afternoon. The interviewer was very pleasant and warm. In fact so warm you could just keep talking to her!
She started off by asking me to walk her through my resume and then asked
1. about a situation where I faced adversity,
2. about what I do during the weekends,
3. How would my colleagues describe me,
4. How would I like my peers and professors at Goizueta to remember me after my MBA,
5. How would I contribute at Emory apart from in academics
6. I told her that I liked travelling and she asked to describe one crazy thing that happened during one of my trips (I wasn't sure why she asked me this question though hmmm..)
7. She also asked about why I chose my choice of career
8. What I was looking for in a b-school
9. Did I face situations where I faced alot of opposition when I tried to present an idea
10. why MBA now?

Then she asked whether I had any questions for her. I asked her some 2-3 questions. Oh yeah, in the beginning she did ask how I found the whole application process.

That's all I can remember. I never thought she asked so many questions till I wrote this down here!

Great job, recalling all the questions. All the best! Remember, it's no longer in your hands, so no need to worry. :)

The FAQ's on the website says:
Goizueta website wrote:
Can I submit a scan of my transcripts?

A: Yes, we will accept scanned unofficial transcripts for evaluative purposes. Please upload all transcripts to the application with your essays and résumé. If you are admitted to the program you will be required to submit official transcripts with your enrollment deposit.


Can you use the same button that you used to attach your essays to attach another file? (I've already submitted my app, so I don't have access to that page any more)

On the tab that reads "Attach essays, resumes, etc", there is an option to upload files. The system does not limit the number of files attached , so i am attaching all my files in that section. (resume,essays,transcripts,degrees)
Hope this helps.

There is always the option to email the transcripts to the adcom. This is what they have to say in the application "If you are unable to attach your file you can mail, fax or email your documents to the Admissions Office."

Hi All! I just found this forum and thread, wish I'd found it sooner! As a GBS 2012 applicant, I would LOVE to find more message boards, forums, etc. for information about the application process, feedback, admits, etc.

Can anyone recommend some resources, please?

Hey everybody,
I just found this forum. Is it a good, bad, or indifferent sign if Goizueta admissions starts following you on twitter?

I wouldn't say it is a bad thing unless you posted something negative about Emory. Did you start following them before they started following you?
