I did have my resume with my business card attached to it for the interview, but when I asked the interviewer if he required the same he said that he already had my resume. No harm in taking your business card along. But I suggest that you present one to the interviewer only if asked.

First off Happy New Years to everyone on here...

Quick question -- have any other Round 1 admits received an admit package or any other communications from the UT office since the initial decision notification?

I am wondering if you need to accept the offer before receiving the additional info -- was hoping to get everything first to make a more informed decision.

Any input here is certainly appreciated!

Hi mw3,
I am based out of India and yet to receive my package. And by "additional info" you mean scholarship info, then if you haven't get the additional mail from the adcom, then most likely you haven't got any schol (as is the case with me :cry: ) Additionally you do not need the admit package to accept your offer as it will not contain anything substantial that could affect your end decision. So if you are sure, go ahead buddy and become a Longhorn :thumbup:

Just writing to say that I hope that UT interviews haven't all been sent out yet....hoping to hear in the next week or so (starting tomorrow)! I'm assuming that all the invites will be out by about Jan 15, to give people time to schedule travel to Austin if they to.

I'm still waiting on an interview invite too :| ... I'm getting nervous.

Does anyone know the best way to update the admissions committee on a GMAT retake? I want to update them on my better score post R2 deadline and I am not sure how. Is it just an email to the general admissions email address or something else?

What are you worried about? Like Aimhigh said, there's nothing valuable in there. I sent in my deposit two weeks ago and still haven't gotten my package. If you're getting in a decision time crunch based on a potential schollie, just call or write them to ask if you got one. They are straightforward about it.

Invited to interview. From the midwest.

Submitted 12/4
Invite 1/3

I haven't had the opportunity to visit McCombs or visit Austin in my life. I should really schedule an on campus interview, right?

I emailed the adcom about the updated score. I would recommend you do the same.
In the return email, they clearly mentioned that there is no guarantee this updated score will be considered.
They are pretty good at replying to the general admissions email address (maybe a slight delay due to large backlog during holidays)

I received the welcome package yesterday in Chicago. Granted -- there is only a letter and a "welcome gift" however its nice to receive some sort of communication from the office. I wish that the admissions office had some sort of packet put together that outlines all the costs of the programs, loan details etc...

An AdCom member wrote on the class of 2015 Facebook page, "One item I'd like to address is the distinction between Texas Friday (Feb. 8th) and Preview Weekend (April 5th & 6th).

Texas Friday: This day is just for Round 1 admitted students. It is a special day devoted to meeting you and offering you a glimpse into our program. We encourage all 1st round candidates to attend, especially if you have yet to decided whether or not to attend McCombs. This day will be especially useful for the undecided to help them clarify their choice before the Feb. 14th decision deadline.

Preview Weekend: As your decision deadline will have already passed, plan to attend this day only if you are already certain you will be attending McCombs. If so, then as Jazmin mentioned, this multi-day event is a bit more in depth and comprehensive then the one-day Texas Friday. A lot of the content will be the same, though this event offers a special dual track for spouses/significant others of prospective students (involving tours and info events led by current spouses/significant others in the Spouses and Significant Others student organization). This event also offers more out-on-the-town excursions into our great city.

So choose which one best fits you, and we hope to see you at either!"
