What I think you're looking for was handed out as a printout when I attended a local info session in November, but I haven't seen it online anywhere. Maybe just give the admissions office a call and they can email a copy over to you

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 would. You have a strong profile, which might make the adcom a little suspicious of the seriousness of your McCombs application (Do you really want to be here? Is this your first choice? etc.) if you haven't had a lot of contact with the school prior to your application. I think showing up to the school shows commitment IMO.

Booked the flight and the interview for on campus. Thanks for thinking I have a strong profile, but McCombs is the only interview invite I've received yet. The waiting is seriously killing me...

I too interviewed last week. Its difficult to be certain but I guess it went well. Being from India, staying up late in the night to interview was a killer. Hopefully should hear some good news in about a month. How was everyone else's interview exp?

I submitted my application on 12/3, but I haven't received an invitation to interview. Does that mean waitlist? I am guessing that all invites have probably been sent out by now. 2/15 is the notification date, so it doesn't seem likely that interview invites would be sent out much later than now. Thoughts?

I'm in the same boat. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed, but if I don't hear about an interview in the next couple of weeks, I'm going to send my deposit to my #2 school.

Unfortunately, you're going to get the standard response that they send out interview invites up until a week before decision week. However, i know it took more than a month after the R1 deadline for Aimhigh2012 to get his invite, and he ended up getting admitted. Also, consider that the winter break will likely have delayed invites.

Narmstro, I'm not sure if you are aware of it, but McCombs likes former military. I don't know what offer you have at school #2, but I can tell you that McCombs doesn't cough up many scholarships for MBA students (unless you are female or a minority). Good luck to you.

I'm 100% Post 9/11 GI Bill eligible, so money really doesn't play a factor in my decision-making as long as the school participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which McCombs and Olin both do.

Because it's in the state of Texas, UT attracts a large number of military applicants. They didn't even start waiving military app fees until this year. If you get in touch w/ the McCombs Armed Forces Alumni Association (AFAA), though, they may give you a candid response on what the typical admitted veteran profile looks like.

Sweet! I didn't even know there were programs like that (money well spent in my opinion). By the way, thank you for your service. Have you visited militarymba.net? They have an interesting page about the best value MBAs for vets using the post-9/11 GI Bill.

Definitely still time to hear on interview invitations. We're all just getting back from Winter Beak too, so no worries yet!


Thanks for letting us know! so may i ask starting when should we start worrying?

Hi everyone,

I am a R2 applicant and got an interview invite today morning so I think all those who haven't received an invite yet can expect it till this weekend.

I chose for Offcampus interview but havent heard from the Alumni yet. How long should I wait for the alumni's revert? Should I write to another Alumni in my location?
Please help.
Thanks,
Vibhuti


Give the alumni three full business days to respond. If they have not responded by then, email them again as a soft reminder and wait another two days. If they have not responded after both attempts, go ahead and contact another alumni.



Hi, Thanks. Have just heard from the Alumni interviewer and have scheduled my interview next weekend.

Hope things will go fine :)

The admissions teams does not have a hard date as to when they suspend the distribution of interview invitations. I know it is difficult to wait, but unfortunately that is the process.
