Congratulations to you all. Defer still means admitted. I was put into waitlist :cry:


Hey Voodoojohn,

I can understand how you feel. I am also placed on WL.
What are you planning on doing? I was thinking to call and find out when exactly they will clear the list. Their answer in the decision letter was little ambiguous.

Let me know what you think?

Thank you. Hope we will be cleared soon!


WL is not the worst thing we have to face. Not rejected yet.

Reading "How to get into Top MBA", I understand that, different schools have different ways to deal with WL. I myself think that all we should to is just wait. Still Round 2 and Round 3 is coming. And if u feel that it's a must, just send an email to them saying that we are looking forward to their answer soon, and that we really like the school.

Think positive anyway :-).

BTW sorry I addressed you as voodoojohn. Just realized it....


No worry :-). Btw, do you have any intention to apply to other schools ? I may need to, I just can't wait.

Did everyone receive a decision back last Friday -- even a rejection, wait list or defer? I am a round 1 applicant and I never received an email and my online application status has not been updated in any way...

We did receive the feedback (either admitted or wait list or rejected ...) As far as I know :-). Why don't you drop an email to the admission team asking for your status ? Or maybe because you did not submit enough GMAT or Transcript I guess... Just check out.

Hi,
I was thinking to try for colleges next year but due to some personal reasons I am planning to apply to colleges this year only.I gave my gmat 20 days before.My profile is as follows

GMAT-680(V31,Q50) AWA 5.5 and IR 6
Exp-2 yrs in june 2013 in IT company
Extra curricular-national level table tennis player
Have worked with two NGOs
Acads-88% from VIT university.

What do you think my chances are if I apply in round 2 or in round 3(as I am not sure if I can complete my essays till round 2).

Thanks,

Hi all,
I'm planning on accepting my offer from Wisconsin in Strategic HR Management :-D Any others going to be joining me next fall? If so, what specialization? and where are you coming from? I went to undergrad at UW, so I'm happy to shed a little light on the city, good neighborhoods to live, etc.

I'm thrilled to announce that I have accepted my offer, in the Marketing Research specialization. I'm coming from Milwaukee, so it shouldn't be too bad of a trek to get to Madison! Thanks for your offer to shed light on the city... I'll be sure to ask some questions once I need to start figuring out where to live etc.


That's amazing - congrats!! I'll look forward to seeing you in Madison in the fall! :)

Actually, I am working on my Wisconsin application currently. The essays, as whoever is applying to Madison might have noticed are different from most of the other MBA schools. I have chosen to write about Supply Chain Management. I wanted to know what is the word limit for both the specialization essays. I could not find it on their site. Also, except these two essays are there any other essays that we need to write.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. A bit urgent please..:)

Hi, I'm a current wisconsin student. For those who got in, congrats. Good luck to the rest.

Only need the two essays, and if you have any questions, call up the centers and they will give guidance. Very friendly here at madison.

I uploaded the transcripts in the admissions portal.I was checking the admissions portal it says that transcripts still pending!
Do we need to send sealed transcripts to univ of Wisconsin or just the transcripts with university stamp need to be uploaded?

Sorry for the late reply. You're better off asking the admissions office if you want to be sure. But it's the application process here is very hands on, your file will be looked at by several groups of people, if something is missing, they'll let you know and give you a chance to submit. I would just make sure it's complete, with GPA from each school, if they need a sealed transcript, they'll tell you.

Hey, sorry can't help you, I'm in Brand program and not RMI (wouldn't want to speak on their behalf). But think of it this way, they must be really thinking about you if they were to get three people involved. More interview the better is how I would read it.

I just received an interview invite to the Center of Brand and Product Management! I'm very excited, but also want to make sure I'm as ready as I can possibly be. I have done a ton of research on the program, but any tips or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats! I'm a first year Brand student. In terms of tips or insight, just be honest and express why you're interested in Brand program. I think that's what matters the most, because it's just an unique program and it's important that people understand why it's a good fit for them.
