I highly doubt that Georgetown had time to go over all the application, essays and recommendations before inviting us for the interview. My guess is that they are calling us based upon certain filter as mentioned above and it seems GMAT>=700 is that threshold (maybe lower like 680). It seems, they have made interview a bigger part of filtering candidate (as oppose to second level of filtering for most other school).


I'm not so sure. Over at BTG, 14/86 applicants in the 2nd round have reported being invited to interview. Of the 14, seven have GMAT scores under 680. Three of those have GPAs under 3.0. Also, not a single Asian invite yet.

Good stat. And the plot thickens..It's not just by location/GPA/GMAT score. Then did they really have time to go over our applications? Dun-Dun-Dun!!

Hi,
I am international and have received an invite for a f2f interview.
The deal is, the city where they are conducting the interview is over 1000 miles away from my place.
My question is - is it worth travelling and spending so much for a 30 min facetime? Or will it be ok if I request for a skype interview instead?

Thanks

I haven't really used this forum before but have been on btg, well anyway, I applied to R2 as well and got the invite to be interviewed last Friday. I had to schedule a Skype interview because Im an international applicant from Australia and their reps werent travelling here.
I was wondering what the interviews were like? and what % that gets interviews receives admission offers?? the numbers between here n btg seem to vary by a huge degree?!!!

Seems like a lot of interview invited went out. Does anyone know if they send invites until a certain point? Are a lot of people still waiting to hear?

I just got an email with the subject "Georgetown MBA Important Update". Did those of you who already got interviews receive this email before your invite?

I did not receive such an email before my invite. What was the important update? That is probably more important than the subject line.

It pretty much said to log in and check status, which went from submitted to submitted for review.

It wasn't as important as I thought it would be.

I received that email about 3 days after submitting my application. A couple days later I got the interview invite. I think it means that your app is about to be read - cross your fingers.
