For those who were accepted and received $$$ money, I have a few questions:

1) Where did you hear about your receiving a scholarship? Via phone call or via email?

2) Did you apply for financial aid? Or is all scholarship $ merit-based?


I was notified on the phone after the admissions decision. I did not apply for a scholarship and had no idea I was eligible - it was an amazing surprise. Hope this helps!

Ditto. Even I was informed about the $$$ on the phone, but I can't find any mention about it on Application Status page. Will they Email an admit letter with scholarship info? Or am I not looking at the right place?

OMG! Admitted! (after 7 dings and 3 WLs)
I was on a plane when Kellogg started calling, so I didn't get any calls,
and I checked my voicemail when I got off the plane but there was nothing so I really was depressed

But I got the official email!!!
So excited!!

Dinged. Hugely disappointed. Closer to the zero admit club. Down to Booth and Sloan now.

Got the call last night. I was waiting for my conf. call with my partners in the States. Just five minutes before the conference, I got the call and became the coolest guy ever in the call.

Expert's post
Had some free time, so I put together the acceptance rate by GMAT of GMATClub members:

Assumptions: Matriculating or Admitted status = Accepted, everything else = Not accepted
Range: 600-770 GMAT, not blank, all other data excluded
Axis: I'm using openoffice, and I generally use excel, so this isn't as pretty as I'd like. But left hand side is % accepted, not total number of accepted.

Image
Image

Conclusions:
1) 700 seems to be a major psychological thresholds for adcoms. Only 3/49 (6%) of people with below 700 got in. Unless you're a URM or have an amazing score, 700 seems to be the minimum score where its worth applying.
2) 700-730 seems to be treated around the same. 740-760 range there seems to be "GMAT bump" where your chance of getting in almost doubles.

Random Thoughts:
1) I think the 770 drop is just noise, I'd ignore it.
2) Remember the sample size for each GMAT range is going to be low, especially at the upper and lower ranges, look at the trend, not specific scores.
3) 14% of people with Blank GMAT got in. I think there's a bias in which people with lower GMAT scores don't input it on this site, perhaps for social reasons.
4) Not in the data above, but something I found really interesting is that out of the 44 people from India who inputted input their country on this site, ZERO got in. Obviously some indians got in, but acceptance rate still must be extremely low.
5) 20% of Americans got in, 20% of blank countries, and 21% of Non-Indian internationals got in.
