Hi

I request the admin to start a new 'sticky' forum, which will have the information of our fellow mates making to their final choice in the list of schools that they have applied.

Example:

GMAT : 640
GPA : 3.0
Work Exp : 10 Years (Engineering design)
International : Singapore, India, Germany, China, Arabia
Applied : Cornell, LBS, IESE, Purdue
Accepted : IESE, Purdue

FINAL DESTINATION : IESE (Barcelona - Spain)

Reason : International, bi-lingual, case-study method and ranking.

Regards

Good idea Carsen!

The name Final Destination sounds vaguely ominous to me but I like the idea.

I would suggest a few additions such as GPA, and amount of work experience

Hypothetical

GMAT : 670
College GPA: 3.3
Work experience: 4.0 years
Industry: Mgmt Consulting
Applied : Cornell, LBS, IESE, Purdue
Accepted : IESE, Purdue

FINAL DESTINATION : IESE (Barcelona - Spain)

Reason for choosing this school : International, bi-lingual, case-study method and ranking.

Carsen,

Congrats on your acceptance! Just wondering why u decided to apply to IESE, and what you know about the school besides the bilingual aspect. Alumni??? Recruitment?? Faculty?? I will be conducting my interview with them next week and am sersiously considering should LBS fail and I opt not to attend the top Canadian MBAs

Also for LBS did u get shortlisted for an interview at all???

i am working on chicago app...and i want to know how many pages shud the letter of reco be? answers to the questions shud sum up to how many words...
also, how shud they be addressed in the letter? as in shud the letter refer to the them as ..."the answer to ques no 1 is as follows"...or shud it be a continuous flow with no reference to questions...

also, since i am sending paper reco., shud it be filled out in hand or shud i format it and type it with just the signature with hand?

please help in earnest...

In general, Reco letters are 1 page long and have a seamless format. FYI, I sent out my recommendation letters typed but this is opened to you. If you have it typed, of course, you would need the hand signature.

Hi nickistardust-
My stats are very similar to yours. Did you apply to Kellogg and GSB part time or full time? I really would like to go full time but I fear my gmat is not comeptitive enough. I have a 640 with a 3.6 gpa and 3 years of work experience in the coporate hospitality world. Do you have any advice or anything in particular that set your application apart?

If anyone else has comments, they are welcome.

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Would it be possible to add another criteria

Undergrad Institution
Highest Degree Obtained

I figure these two stats might be important aswell.

Returning after long time [#permalink] New post 23 Sep 2007, 06:31
Hi Paul, Preto, Hjort and MBA asprnts

Finally..I have graduated from IESE. Fantastic two years, one of the most memorable years of my life. Most of them would be wondering what is next after the MBA.

In my case, I got exactly what I wanted. An irrestible offer from one of the top spanish firms....to work in Barcelona couple of years, and then to move to Asia on Senior role.

Could not have gone better than this. If anybody needs info on IESE feel free to ask.

Once again. Thanks for GMAT club. Keep rockig guys.

Cheers

Congrats on completing your MBA! It must be strange coming back and reading your old post about this.

Anyway, question on IESE....have you noticed in your time there if there is a lot of pharmaceutical/biotech recruiting on campus? If so, were the companies mostly Spanish, other European, Asian or American?

Thanks!

Carsen-

Great idea. here's my info:

GMAT : 730
College GPA: 2.6 at the Citadel
Work experience: 8 years in sales - 4 years as a sales trainer
Industry: Pharmaceuticals and labor supply
Applied : Wake Forest
Accepted : Wake Forest

FINAL DESTINATION : Wake Forest

Reason for choosing this school : Voted by recruiters as the number #2 best regional school in the WSJ. Highly respected in the SE - which is where I want to stay. And it has a small student body. All the professors know you by name. No class rankings because you work in teams. Lots of other reasons too.

Oh - and they now unofficially require all applicants to have at least 2 1/2 years exp. No young punks!
