Received an email today from the admissions office stating that my application is complete and ready to be reviewed by the admissions committee.
Isn't that a little late considering the deadline was almost a month back!!?


I received that email last week!
I'm assuming that they were busy with decision deadlines in December, and then holidays.

Btw, I realised that I haven't sent scores from mba[dot]com to Kenan-Flagler!
I hope that my application still remains 'complete', since I couldn't find it explicitly written anywhere that we have to/do not have to send official scores before applying.

Anyone have an idea?


In the Application Requirements section, KF has mentioned they require GMAT or GRE score from all applicants. I think it goes without saying that you need to submit the official score with the app; you would do better to ask the admissions office regarding this.

I've written to the AdCom; let's see what happens.
If it was mandatory, why would I get the "application complete for review" email?!

Well, maybe you are right, or maybe the AdCom assumes you have sent the official score and it is in transit.
Do tell what they reply.
BTW, where else you applying?

hey man,
I see u have decided on Kenan Flagler.
Can you tell what made u finalise KF and not Tuck or any other?


Hi,
Well,
After speaking with over 20 alums of all schools, my conclusion is:
1. I did not got in to H/W/S.
2. I also did not got in to Wharton Or Kelogg.
3. I got in to Tuck, Duke , and Kenan Flagler - They are pretty similar.
4. Speaking with alumni who recruit for their tech companies - they say that if it's not a target school (eg. Berkeley/Stanford/MIT) , they don't care which school you went to , as long as it's top 20.
4. Tuck has higher avg. salary - but only 58% of their international students work in the US. that's not a good sign for someone that want to work in the US after the MBA.
5. Duke students say most companies that recruit on campus also go to UNC. (15 min drive)
6. KF is a great program , and small. Tuck is also great and small. Duke is medium (400 students). I want small.
7. Tuck is buried in the snow from Dec-March. I'm not sure if I like snow or not for so long.
8. KF offered full tuition fellowship, that's 110K. and living costs are very low. so that's seals the deal.

That is great, especially the full tuition fellowship part :)
Would definitely like to know how to secure one myself, although my app and interview are already complete...
So u are an international, where from?

Just finished interview with Julie Gaudet, went well. She was very easy to talk to.

lasted about 30 minutes. No Skype invitation, just received a call from KFB admission at my appointment time.

Questions I got:

Why MBA? Why KF? What do you like to do outside of work? Any questions you want to ask me?

Other than that she just wanted to talk about my work experience.

Hey, sound reasoning. However I would like to share my thoughts.

Disclaimer: I love both KF and Tuck. I was dinged by Tuck, BTW.

1. The alumni network of Tuck is next to none. When I visited the school, I see CEOs of big firm visit the school and talk to the current students as if they were a family.
2. You will almost always get an interview through a Tuck alum instead of recruiters coming to you. It's special how Tucikes help each other.
3. Tuckies live in tunnels. The buried in the snow is what makes it such an intimate network.
4. I think you should put the money aside a bit and see where do you belong more. Having said that, KF and Tuck are both great. You must be a rockstar to get into both. All the best.
5. Even if you think in terms of money, lot of Tuckies get their loans paid by their employers once they graduate.

Hi!
First thanks for the kind words! I'm sorry about the ding. I was also dinged by Tuck last year (and by duke) and was admitted this year. If you want it - don't give up.
The truth is I agree with everything you mentioned. I had a great visit to Tuck and I love it there. I could imagine my self indoors for the winter making strong connections.

BUT, speaking with Tuck international alumni, something really problematic came up. I don't know of it's true or it's a small sample opinion. the consensus I felt was:
1. There is a constant distance between the US and international students at Tuck. they don't socialize often, and pretty much closed to each other. that is not uncommon in US schools but sounds really evident at Tuck. (lot's of separate parties)
2. That distance causes the 'Tuckies' that help each other thing, AKA the network to be far less effective for international students.
3. I think (but was unable to verify) there is a problem with international students and US jobs at Tuck. I don't know why, maybe it's lack of US recruiters of INTL students, or abundance of international recruiters coming to Tuck, but finding a job in the US may be just as hard coming from UNC or Tuck.

Still, while both are great programs, I agree Tuck is better. in my opinion , not enough to put the money issue aside.

Just interviewed on Skype... everything lasted just ~22 min! I guess I answered OK, but the duration was too short IMO.
Let's see what happens on 3rd Feb. :roll:
