As a current student, congrats to all those who were admitted. A bit of advice for all of you: go to all the welcome weekends you possibly can. Especially if you're deciding between different schools, it is the easiest way to see if you fit in with the culture of a school. It only takes a few hundred bucks to ensure you make the right decision for the next 2 years.

For those of you who got waitlisted, quite a few of my classmates were waitlisted too, so don't give up hope. The whole process has taught me that B-school is a crap shoot. Some of my classmates who were waitlisted are the best students with top internships while some of the scholarship recipients are on the opposite side of things. That holds true for every B-school out there, so don't let a single waitlist or ding get you down.

Wherever you end up, work hard, get involved, and you'll end up far better off than the handful of people who still wish they'd gotten an extra few points on the GMAT or had been a little more charismatic in their Harvard interview.

Hey hle,

I just got back from Welcome Weekend, and also entered it very undecided. While I am still not 100% sold on my decision, the weekend helped to provide an enormous amount of clarity about the program. I'm sure your concerns are the same as mine (rankings, job placements, strength of alumni network), so I hope this info helps, as I really tried to get all I could from the weekend.

Areas of Note


The People: Awesome all around.

    Students: Both the admitted class and the current students. I could really see my self working with the other people there and having an awesome social life. Everyone was professional throughout the day, but cool to have a few beers with at the happy hour afterwards.
    Faculty: The faculty that participated in the weekend were great. The professor who ran the mock class was very animated and engaging, and those that played a part in the faculty panel seemed very strong. The one caveat, a second-year student told me that they bring out the faculty A-team for Welcome Weekend. He did say that for the most part he liked his instructors, but most of the best ones play a role in Welcome Weekend.
    Leadership/Staff: The new dean seems like he has a solid plan in place to raise the profile of the school (more on this below).

The Location
    The facility: The building is awesome. Lots of natural light, nice case rooms and plenty of communal and private meeting space.
    The campus: Georgetown has a sweet campus, classic college feel.
    Georgetown area/D.C.: It's in an awesome neighborhood in a great town. Walking distance to plenty of shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Only downside is it's pricey.

The Plan For The Future
    While I'd hardly say they were open about their weaknesses, if you were paying attention, you could tell that they understand their deficiencies and are really working on them. Every area that I think we would agree are weaknesses they have addressed by bringing in someone with an impressive background to head that department. Several of the career service advisers have been hired in the past two years and have a decade+ experience in their industry. The new alumni involvement chair is a recent hire from Cornell-Johnson, and the new dean has ample experience as Asst Dean at HBS. Each of these people struck me as very dedicated to raising the profile of the school. (

Career Services
    This was an area that exceeded my expectations, but it depends on your industry. The school seems to place well in IB and brand management. Students I talked to were going to work for Goldman, Citi, Unilever, AMEX and other great companies in awesome capacities. However, if you're interested in consulting, the school doesn't seem to place well with McKinsey and BCG, but they claim to be getting a foothold at Bain. They also place excellently at the 2nd tier firms. As someone interested in brand management, I was thrilled to speak with a 2nd year who is going into a market strategy position at AMEX that sounds ideal for me. They also have great connections with Deloitte and Johnson & Johnson as well a huge number of alumni at the World Bank.
    The career office seems great by the way too. They had breakout sessions by industry with career advisers, and the adviser in the CPG session seemed awesome and dedicated. It also looks like there are ample resources for preparing for case interviews, plenty of career fair options for companies that don't recruit on campus, and a good set of companies that do recruit on campus.

Alumni Network
    In all honesty, this is my biggest concern with the program. Someone asked about the strength of the network in a panel session with alumni, and even they were candid that the program is young (30 years old) has a small class, and henceforth has a smaller alumni network. The school stressed the strength of the overall alumni network, but that seemed to offer more value in the public sector than private based on my conversations.
    That said it's another area that appears to be improving. The new alumni relations woman seems sharp and one of the alumni on the panel noted how he and his peers are doing their part. He noted that when he arrived at Volkswagon (where he is director of credit services) he was the first McDonough MBA, but he has since hired 6 or 8 (I forget the exact number)
    I believe that the network is growing, but at the end of the day they are going to put out 1/3 as many alumni each year as many other schools. This was never explicit, but I get the impression that alumni have not been previously very involved, but they have a plan of attack to get them involved.

Class Size
    The flip side of that coin is the small class size seems to enrich the on-campus experience. As I talked to various students, they all really seemed to know each other. Even at the student org fair, those that were less involved with the weekend seemed to know everyone. They all also seemed to have stories about the accessibility of faculty. This also goes back to the people. They seems to have a great community.

All-in-all, this was an extremely valuable weekend that gave me tons of information about the program. While I would say it was an extremely positive experience, I'm leaning towards not matriculating at the moment (pending an upcoming visit to other schools). I'm only 24, I have strong stats, and I think there are a number of things I can do improve my profile over the next year or two to get into my top choices (Columbia and Kellogg). I could definitely see this program being a top 15 school 10 years down the road, but it isn't quite there yet. However if I was 27 and dead set on going to B-School this year, I would feel pretty damn good about McDonough and the prospects it offers.

Obviously the decision is your own, but hopefully this information helps. If I were you I would also reach out to the admissions office and try to get in touch with some students in your field and get their perspective. The best part of the weekend was talking with students and other admitted students, so do whatever you can if you can't make it to campus.

If you have any more questions feel free to message me.

I'm a current 1Y student at MSB and wanted to briefly respond to some of the career related comments above.

While I'm well aware of students with MBB offers (full time and intern), it is not a walk in the park nailing them down. Big 4 consulting certainly has a huge presence on campus (where I came from pre MSB) but MBB roles are the end goal for most aspiring consultants at top business schools. In terms of this track, in my personal opinion, Georgetown can get you to the most prestigious gig but we are playing catch up to some of the higher ranked schools. BCG, in particular, has increased their presence over the past few years and I'm definitely intrigued to see how that trend continues.

On the flip side, I think Georgetown is the hidden gem of the IB world (if you consider them "hidden"). I'm 3/4 through my first year here and I'm absolutely astonished by the recruiting results in IB. To my knowledge roughly 22 students have IB offers for the summer (yes, the same offers held by the CBS, Stern and Wharton folks) with many holding multiple offers. Even more impressive, only approx 25 students actually went hard after those IB positions (I'm in the finance club and some members would argue that only 22 really went the whole 9 yards of the IB recruitment/courtship process). I honestly don't think there are many better options then Georgetown if IB is what you aim for. If you want it..you will get it. Now sadly I can't say the same for PE/VC.....very few placements a year.

Personally, I'll be spending my summer at a BB bank working in their investment management division (3 offers from BB banks). I took part in IB, trading and IM recruiting and wanted to point out who my (and fellow students) competition was for these internships. Whether making the trek to NYC for informational interviews or company presentations/office visits, I kept running into the same 5-10 schools along the way. For the most part, we go head to head with Cornell, NYU, Yale, PENN, CBS, UVA with a decent showing from the likes of MICH, UCLA, CMU and UNC here and there. IB wasn't for me so I bucked the trend and went my route.

For the sake of brevity, I'll end this response and opine that MSB has surpassed my expectations on many levels (career, facilities, quality students etc.). There are many great schools out there and some applicants are concerned that Georgetown hovers anywhere from 18-30 in various rankings. I certainly feel we are at least a top 20 program and I think any applicant that visits the school, see's our new facility and reads about the visions of our new Dean will quickly feel the same.

Hi!

Just as chains said. The experience was awesome. Students both current and prospective seemed smart and easy-going. The alumni network is not as broad as a top 10, but I would point out that they are currently making it easier to contact alumni from other Georgetown schools and programs at target companies. Contacting professionals in target companies who graduated from McDonough undergrad (ranked much higher) and the School of Foreign Service (best in the world) is an option, thanks to new efforts by the Career Center.

I am already enrolled.

If there are any admits who are CERTAIN they won't be attending Georgetown, can I kindly request on behalf of all waitlisted applicants that you let the school know by withdrawing your application.

I was interviewed by an admission committee member and a there was a a student observer in the room with us. A few questions I was asked was. 1) What are a few companies you are targeting? 2) How are you planning to leverage your experience to gain an internship? 3)Share a time when you were an effective leader. The interview went by pretty quickly. I actually wish it could have been longer.

Good luck!

That is pretty low. What is the yield rate at its peer schools?

Businessweek shows 41% at Marshall and 51% at Owen... Kelley, Kenan-Flagler and McCombs are all in the 40s as well.


Vanderbilt and Indiana are smaller schools and the number of applicants are fewer as well. McCombs, UNC, Marshall and McDonough are very comparable with their class sizes and the number of applicants. Since they're all in the same ball park ranking wise, cost of attending might be a factor. UNC n McCombs are cheaper to attend(both tuition and living). Other than that the lower yield is surprising to me because all 4 schools are very strong regionally, have very similar recruitment stats and solid alumni networks. (I guess there's more top 16 schools in the N.E than anywhere else so Georgetown probably loses a bulk of its admits to them)



Does anybody know of any tangible reasons besides the somewhat low rankings that suggest any problems with the program? From all other aspects (job figures, recruitment by top firms, location, program offerings, brand, connections,etc.), Georgetown seems like a solid program. I just want to know if anybody can point to any more any real issues they've heard about the program.

I've been hesitant about GTown primarily because of the less than stellar rankings, but I'm starting to suspect these things like low yield rate are just a result of people being self-conscious about not going to a top 15 school.

I'm on the wait-list for Michigan, but I'm starting to lean towards Georgetown regardless. Looking at the job figures, Georgetown has a 92% job offer rate 3 months out vs. 85% at Michigan with pretty similar salaries from top firms. I assume that Michigan grads can land jobs on the West Coast more easily b/c of a wider alum network, but besides that, I think living and D.C. and having access to the Georgetown network beat it in several ways. I met some 2nd year Gtown students recently who already had jobs at top consulting and C&R firms and they had great things to say about the program. Am I completely wrong about this or are the somewhat low rankings just a self-perpetuating phenomenon that don't have any real effect on the business school experience?

Knowledgestick:

From all the research I've done, I believe top 15 schools are looked better at than Georgetown. People at GTown have to chase recruiters down to get interviews. However, all of the people I know at Gtown have managed to get good internships. They are really happy with the program. Its location makes it easy to get the interview you want. Also, Gtown has a new dean in town. He is set on having Gtown climb through the rankings. The students and faculty are raving about it. He has improved the alumni network, making it easier to contact Gtown alumni with good positions at your target companies. Or you can contact Bill Clinton to tell him about this really funny joke you just heard. 8-)

I just got dinged from Stern. Still waiting to hear from Columbia Business School, but it is a big stretch. I am really excited about Georgetown though. I hope I get good news on March 15th.

I think this hits the nail on the head. McDonough doesn't have a big name in the business world right now but they have new facilities and a new curriculum which everyone is very excited about. The location is fantastic (in the heart of DC but not truly urban like NYU or GWU) and with a brand like Georgetown, they have the potential to break into the top 20 or 15 in the future. It's a good time to be applying to McDonough... I can foresee it only getting more competitive in the future as their new school direction gains traction.

Just got the call- in!! :-D

No mention of any scholarship, but it looks like those who received funds in Round 1 this year had that info in the letter once it was posted online. It was a quick call- so I expect they are hoping to roll through a lot this morning. Best of luck to everyone else!

So......I'm supposed to fly into DC tomorrow night for a Wednesday morning interview, but there happens to be a rather large hurricane parked over the East Coast. The Georgetown website says that the University is closed Monday and Tuesday, but makes no mention of Wednesday. Meanwhile, I'm operating under the assumption that Delta is waiting until the last minute to cancel my flight, so I probably won't be able to get there anyways. I got an e-mail from the Admissions Office saying that missing the interview because of the storm would have no impact on my application, but what wasn't clear was what my other options would be. I've already taken the days off work to go interview, so I won't be able to get back to DC in the middle of the within the next month, and I don't know if they're doing interviews in my hometown (I doubt it). So, does anyone know if there's a third option? Skype? I'm pretty nervous about missing the opportunity to interview, and with the University being closed tomorrow, I probably won't hear anything until it's too late.


Hey BBD,

I have forwarded your concern to the admissions department. Will let you know as soon as I hear back from them.

Update: This is the feedback I received from the admissions team: "We evaluate requests for Skype interviews on a case by case basis, but of course, we know the storm has affected a lot of folks, I anticipate that we will be flexible."
There's still no update on whether the University (and DC in general) will be operating on Wednesday. So my advice to you is to keep in touch with the admissions team while they decide on a plan.

Good luck on the interview

I was told at the end of my interview that we won't hear anything until the day of. She said by late afternoon we would get a phone call to let us know if we were admitted. I don't think it'll be any time before that sadly.
