Did you actually get an updated email invite from AdCom or did you just send in your updates?

I didn't receive any additional requests from admissions, but I did receive an confirmation email letting me know they had annotated my file with what was provided.

What a dadgum mess of a situation. I didn't send any updates in because I read they didn't want updates until explicitly requested.

I should have been more clear, I was waitlisted early March and so the email they sent me for April 1st updates was sent about 10 days before the 4/1 deadline.

Not sure about anyone waitlisted after the April 1st deadline unfortunately :(

Hi

Can anyone here who had the video interview post the questions he had? Share about what it's like?

Can you stop the recording once you're done? say 10-5 seconds before the time is up? Would seem strange to have to be able to talk 90 seconds sharp...
I don't want to just stay quiet for 5-10 seconds lol

Thanks

Hey brosnan6.

Thanks for your reply...I've been following the other thread constantly so yeah I've seen it thanks.

However, I'm still pondering about whether you can stop it after say80 seconds or once you know you finished answering..

You can. You click a button when you're finished and it will take you to the next question.

Do you think giving the video interview is a good idea if you have already done an interview and then been waitlisted? I got the wait list email which said the video interview as optional but I am having my doubts on speaking to a camera with a set time frame of 60-80 seconds . Any body can share their thoughts? thanks

Hi there,

I had the same question when I submitted my WL updates, and honestly I think it's probably a good idea regardless. Yes the format is not idea, yes it takes getting used to. But if you know what you want to say and can do so quickly, it probably shows the school you have more interest? That's just my take. I was also WL-ed after the interview, but chose to the video anyways to really hit on WHY mccombs was the place for me.

Hope that helps!
