I interviewed for OTM back in December because I was home on leave and preferred to interview in person instead of possibly having to interview via Skype (stationed overseas). You can interview optionally before submitting the application. I was given permission from the admissions director to apply this year and defer if accepted (since I have active duty obligation until 2015 but must submit resignation request 9-12 months prior)

Interview was with the Director and Executive Director of the OTM program. Started with just going over my resume and getting asked questions about items where they wanted more information. Lots of questions for me about why I want to get out of the military, why pursuing an MBA vice pursing a technical Masters at Naval Postgraduate School, how my military experiences would fit, etc. Also asked about my Computer Science background and if I had ever programmed in Visual Basic (possible TA position).

Overall I didn't think the interview went exceptionally well, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary from a typical job interview. Prior to the interview they requested my resume and GMAT scores, but since my application was not submitted I do not believe they had any other background (i.e. recommendation letters, essays, transcripts, etc.)

Looking back, I wish that I had waited for a possible interview via Skype after submitting my application instead of pursuing one while I was home on leave. Not only does it make the wait that much longer (since I may not hear anything at all about my application until March 14), but I think it would have been better if the adcom had some reference on me before the interview.

Background
School: US Naval Academy
GMAT: 620 (biggest flaw in my application since it barely hits the 80% range from recent years)
GPA: 3.6 (Dual Major Computer Science and Information Technology)
Work experience(WE): Naval Officer: 2 years - Surface Warfare Officer. 3 years (at matriculation) - Information Dominance Warfare Officer (Information Professional)
Nationality: USA
Age: 26 (28 at matriculation)
Gender: Male
Extra-curriculars/community: USNA Drum and Bugle Corps, Command Soccer Team coach, NSA Cyber Defense Exercise, AFCEA Treasurer

All a waiting game at this point! Any other OTM hopefuls out there?

Hey everyone! Hope all of the application prep is going well and that you're feeling great about your decision to go to B-School!

I just wanted to let you all know that I am a current 1st year student at the Wisconsin School of Business, and I am here to help you or answer whatever questions you may have. I know there is an overload of info you have to weigh to make the right decision for yourself, believe me I remember being in your shoes not too long ago, but hopefully I can help you or at least speak to things you are wondering about as far as the Madison MBA program is concerned. I love it here and am SO glad that I chose Wisconsin!

Anyway, feel free to reach out at any time, and good luck!


Hi Inertia808,

What is the word limit for Essays!!!



So Sorry! I didn't see this until just now! Hopefully it's not too late...

So interestingly enough, there is not given word limit. That's not to say you should write a novel. I would try to be somewhat concise and use a limit similar to other schools you may be applying to. When I applied, I just wrote my essays and said everything i wanted to say, then just reviewed my essays to make sure everything I wrote was really important to expressing who I was and what I was all about. So yeah, so official guidelines, just use your best judgement. Good luck!

Has anyone done the interview with the Brand and Product Management Center? It'd be great to have your share.

Thanks,

Other Round 2 OTM hopefuls,

Have you completed an interview? Hear anything back yet regarding a decision?

In previous years, it looked like applicants started hearing back before the deadline. However, I don't know if that will be the case this year. Probably waiting it out until the 14th...

The decision date for Wisconsin is 14th. I haven't been interviewed till now, so I guess I have most probably been rejected.

does your application still show unchecked on the boxes adjacent to the official test scores and transcripts under supporting materials?
