Congrats! Good luck! I thought you were in USA. Are you planning to move here? I actually applied EWMBA only. Hoping to hear something soon.

I believe they will accommodate your request for phone interview or with alumni.

I created a similar thread in business week forums. Couple of applicants got interview invites as well.
Do you know if your status changed directly from "reviewable" to "invited to interview" or it went into "Review In Progress" prior to your interview invite.

Thanks! Hopefully it won't be a big deal to schedule an alternative :)

Re: location- I'm American, born and raised in Kansas of all places, but have been in Taiwan since October 2009 on a developmental rotation with my firm. I'll be moved back to the States in July 2011, to either San Francisco or Chicago... destination partially dependent on the result of my B-school apps. But if I get into schools in both cities, the company probably gets to make the final choice.

Per your question about application status, I'm honestly not sure. Between a crazy work schedule and coming down with a nasty bug this weekend I haven't been monitoring too closely the past week and a half.

Hope you get some good news soon!

Wow! that's great. So you are on a job rotation in China. I think it is a big plus for your resume to show some international experience. How do you like working in China? Are you in IT?

I got an update today that my Math & Statistics pre-requisites are complete. I am not sure whether I will get a call for interview. What are the other schools did you apply?

I like Taiwan a lot! (I'm not one to get picky about such things, but as an FYI it can be a really big deal to some people to call Taiwan China, due to the 60+ years of dispute over that issue :wink: ) I actually work in a niche area of finance/economic consulting with a Big 4 accounting firm, which I love. The work experience has been really eye opening, because even in Taiwan, which has a capitalistic, open market, there are HUGE differences in educational approaches and backgrounds that really contribute to a different work environment. I really wasn't expecting it to be this different, especially within one big global organization that's structured the same way worldwide, you know? It has been a really valuable experience, both personally and professionally, and provided me with great essay fodder :-D

I'm applying to Booth as my only other school this round. My top two choices for moving back destinations are Chicago and San Francisco, so hopefully I'll get an accept to at least one of my two programs, and be able to make a quick decision. If I get dinged from both I'll send in apps to Kellogg and NYU, and maybe scramble for something PT in the Boston area. Hope I don't have to do so!

I just talked with their admissions office. The lady was quite nice as we walked through the program, my profile, and various other questions. She definitely suggested I apply as she thought I had a strong profile and more than a decent chance. So I guess you can count me in for RD 2.

That's great! Good luck with the app!

Mind giving us the brief version of your profile?

Sailorette, It was interesting to know about your Taipei work experience. I am sure you have a good shot at both Haas and Booth schools. I am preparing for my interview.

I think you can see a good bit about my profile to the left of this post. Other than that, I am the manager of my accounting department and will have about 4 years of management experience by next Fall. In addition, I'll be 32, I have a couple of nice professional licenses, and my scores/GPA are pretty bang on in comparison to their class profile. She said, in my case, that the recommendations and essays might be a pretty big deal (as I appear to look fine on paper so far), as well as the possible interview, so no pressure right?

I got an accept in my inbox while celebrating Tet in Vietnam :)

Sailorette, I did not see your post for a long time. I was waitlisted in R1 but I got accepted in R2. I attended welcome party yesterday and it was lots of fun.

Glad that things worked out for both of us. are you going to join Haas?

Congratulations!

I will actually be attending Chicago Booth. I was really excited about Haas, but the combination of the commute time from my company's office in San Jose and their desire for me to return to the Midwest and take back some of my former clients conspired against my moving and matriculating out there. Repatriation is set for July, and I'm anxious to get back to the States :)

I hope all goes well for you with school!
