Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I received yesterday an invitation for an Interview. they sent me a pre-acceptance email 4 days before the final date. lets see how it goes.
If you just received an interview invitation, what do you mean by pre-acceptance email?[/quote]
i meant that my application has been 'pre-selected' and that i have been 'invited to the admission interviews'
When i said i got an email 4 days earlier than expected, i meant that the deadline for interview notification was the 19th Feb, and i got it on the 15th.[/quote]
Ok, let's back up for a second. I think your statements will be confusing for future applicants who read this forum.
Instead of "pre-acceptance email," let's just call it a "pre-selection email." You were pre-selected to interview with admissions folks or alumni. Congrats, that's great news!
Next, there is no deadline for interview notification. HEC has clearly stated on their website that they have a rolling admissions policy and the only deadline they aim to meet is the deadline by which to provide applicants with a final decision. This means acceptance or rejection. Throughout this timeline and before the decision deadline, you will either receive a pre-selection email, or a rejection email. However, this can range from just days after you submit your app to weeks after.
If you submitted on or before Feb. 2, your final decision deadline is March 19. This means that you'll be notified of your final acceptance or rejection by March 19. If other applicants applied on or before Feb. 2 but haven't been notified one way or another, there's still plenty of time to hear back from admissions.
The Feb. 19 deadline you were referring to is the final decision deadline for the applications submitted by Jan. 5. These applicants have already been told whether they are pre-selected for interview or not, and are waiting for acceptance.
Although a great percentage of interviewed candidates are accepted, it's not guaranteed. So to call it a pre-acceptance email would not be entirely accurate. Anyway, good luck and keep us posted![/quote]
ah, yeah you are tight. I must have mixed up the dates or maybe i was drunk when i wrote the post Thanks for the clarification.
Was anyone interviewed in France by HEC alumni? also, any tips for interview in France will be helpful
I was interviewed in France and I posted my experience a few days ago. The two interviews have been completely different. For sure, I wasnt asked to speak French. I don't think that French interviews are different from 'foreign' interviews -- Even if, I couldn't tell the difference since I have no other experience-- it just depends on the alumnus.
However, keep in mind that interviewers receive guidelines directly from the school therefore their approach is, or at least should be, somehow standardized. Furthermore, they all need to fill the same feedback form stating about your preparation, professionalism, and all that jazz.
Just try to gather as many information as you can and use them smartly:) You can find many (and useful) in this thread, and also in others hosted by bweek and pagalguy.
Dunno, but I think that Apple Vice President and HEC MBA Alumnus Pascal Cagni wants to further strengthen the partnership with HEC. The UK HEC Christmas party was in the Apple Store at Regents Street in London. Also, one guy from my intake did an internship with Apple to work on the HEC podcasts. So yes, I think that you will get an i-Pod!
Most of the podcasts can be downloaded from the intranet and are not meant for public view.
Thanks for the info catgmat! I have been waiting for HEC's iTunes U for ages.
Do you know if future MBA participants will also be given iPods for lecture podcast and such? I wonder if all classes will receive an iPod or if it was only provided for the pioneering class.
In any case, my current iPhone should be sufficient .
