Hi

I applied for R3 on 8/12 and got pre-selected for the interview on 9/14. I set up the interviews on 9/22 and 10/1. The first one was at starbucks and went on for 1.5 hours and was very friendly. The second one was more formal and ended in less than 20mins. I could not make out anything from the second interview whereas I could say the first one was pretty positive. Now waiting for the final results! Anxious! :)

I had a very similar experience, first guy really friendly and relaxed. Second one a bit sharper and formal. Fingers crossed now...

good luck guys!

So what do people think the chances are for R3 applicants with 497 admissions already!?

Actually, one of the alumni told me that is not the correct number. He said the no. does not refelct those who declined the admission in the real time. I applied for R3 and decided not to care about the 497 admissions!

My first interview with the younger alumnus was a lot more detailed, didn't seem to go fantastically, I left with a bit of a ?
Hope it didn't go too bad though....
The second was with an older female alumnus, she was very nice, friendly and supportive, she asked very broad questions, no specifics - that seemed to go a lot better so hoping it swings the other one and keeping my fingers crossed.
Both of them focused alot on my previous experience and why I want to do an MBA, not too much on plans after or current affairs/economy as some of the other questions indicated...
Next week is THE week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Also not too bothered about the 497 Admits and 70 Indians. I assume that if they went as far as to invest time in screening and interviewing for round 3 if they definitely plan to admit candidates.

Hope to stay updated on progress on the forum.

Thanks for the feedback guys - I am hoping that despite all the admits already, they really took special care in deciding who to invite for interviews in R3 (so as not to waste time at such a late round) and provided our interviews were not totally off the mark, we will be invited to join the class of 2013.

Fingers crossed. Cant believe in a week I will find out if my life is going to dramatically change in 2013 or not :)

This wait is really starting to get to me. The program starts in less than three months and round 3 still has another week to wait. Still have to resign from work if I get accepted and then all the paperwork and financing. I'm pretty sure that when the alumni recommend a few weeks off for traveling and relaxation as preparation for the MBA program they aren't talking to round 3 applicants.

Good Luck!

I am an American living in Germany in case you are wondering about the order/timing of the calls.

Good luck everyone.

Just got an email stating that I am placed on the waitlist. Another excruciating wait begins. Any ideas when we can realistically expect an answer. I am an Indian working in the US and now thinking of demographic mix + R3 application to be a potential reason ... sour grapes :D

Congratulations to those who got the call. Still waiting nervously and very impatiently. My biggest fear is being waitlisted. I don't think I can deal with the ambiguity anymore at this point.
Just 72 more hours till this is all over.
