Hi,

I was invited to interview on Friday April 10th. My application status was changed to 'file under review' within a couple hours of my interview. Does anyone know when I'd be hearing on the decision?




Thanks!


Hi Rush1982 - Could you tell more about your interview and your profile if you don't mind sharing it. I was also interviewed on April 10th but my status has not changed yet. I am not sure if they change the status for only those applicants who are of interest to them.

I think you just earned your Admit letter!
Congratulations.

Retaking the GMAT and scoring better would show the same thing.


Generally speaking, if you're applying to part-time programs, you're only going to be applying to one or two schools.

Retaking the GMAT is about removing weak spots in your profile. At this point in the game, there aren't many options for improving your profile. If you have a GMAT score below the average for the school, it's probably a good idea to retake the GMAT. It shows effort and may move you ahead of other on the list, which is your goal.


I took GMAT again this week and scored 700, which is 40 points more than my previous score.
This is max I could do in a month's time :)
Keeping fingers crossed for the third time!

Are there some candidates who submitted application in round 4, had their interview but the status is still showing "Invited for Interview". I am not sure when do they usually change the status.

Thanks Packet! You have always been great help.

I had few questions for those who took the Statistics waiver exam. Does following material needs to be studied too?

1- Deriving Confidence Interval of Population Proportion
2- Deriving a regression line equation for given data.

I heard it is a pass/fail exam? Does anyone knows approx what percent of questions one needs to attempt correctly to clear to the test?
Also, is there any sample test somewhere to get an idea of it:P

Thanks all.

hmm...no sample test is there...infact we sign a honor clause promising not to discuss anything regarding the test outside :)
However, the test itself is simple and grading is generous.
Stick to the topics mentioned in the list (no less, no more!) and you are good to go.

Has there been any one who heard the decisions for the Haas round 4... do they give out results only on 31 May or some time before as well...

All decisions are supposed to be released on May 31. They start calling the admitted students a day early though.

Admit calls should start coming in from May 30, a day before the published result date and might continue to May 31.
This has been the behavior in Round 1 and 2, so I expect it will repeat.

Still waiting for the stats waiver exam result. It wasn't as easy as I expected. whatever it may be, I hope it does not tilt the end decision.
Yes, eagerly waiting for the results so that I can move on with other things depending on this and end this drama

Cleared the Stats waiver. I didn't have a good feeling after the exam. It s probably the generous grading that helped me! Looking forward to May 31.All the best for those who have their waiver exam in June.

Hey Freemont - I have a few questions about the stats exam
1. statistics for business and economics is not available and hence I am planning to refer to a different book...Did you do the same or did you go through the same book ( I guess I am asking if the exam is about the concepts than I should be fine brushing up from another book)
2. Did you use the book as the reference and basically study the topics which have been mentioned in the pdf..
3. How long in your opinion should one prepare if he has a strong math background ( I have not attended a stat course for the past 7 years :))...but I scored like 50 on quant so ...

Did anyone register for the Data and Decisions workshop starting in June ? Iam skeptical of registering for the course before the final decisions are made. Will they offer a refund if you arent admitted ? Also , is it a big deal if you mentioned you were going to register for the Haas course in the application and later changed my mind to just take a course from a community college , once iam admitted ? Any help is appreciated.

No, it's not a big deal if you take it from the community college instead of the Haas course. They just want to know what your plans were, if they change after you submit the application, they're fine. As long as you complete the prereqs, they're happy.



thank you for the insight , packet82.
