Anyone have insight into how difficult it really is to get into the venture fellows program? It's a compelling reason for me to attend but the uncertainty of getting into the fellows program diminishes the attractiveness. So far I got accepted to CBS and am waiting for a couple more schools but I do like Austin and the Venture Fellows/Labs programs.

Not sure about McCombs’ venture fellow program. Fuqua also has a Venture Fellow program with similar structure. From my experience at Fuqua, being a venture fellow really depends on the need at the VC partner firm and your background. The admission criteria are completely disconnected with b-school admission criteria. In another word, you can be a complete rockstar in b-school AdCom’s eyes, but if your background/pitch does not match the current need (fund raising, research/due diligence on specific industry, etc.) at a VC firm, you will not get matched.

The Venture Fellows at Fuqua were very passionate about entrepreneurship, and have extensive background in a particular industry or starting/running a company.

Did anyone attend the Texas Friday event today? If so, were there any notable takeaways?

Any of you R2 guys hear yet?

I applied R3 and will be interviewing next week. I'm just curious how long post-interview it takes UT to make a decision. I'm trying to predict the timeline of when I'll hear back. But it sounds like they string you along almost right up to the deadline.

I don't think anyone has been accepted from rd 2 yet. Round 1 they started making calls 8 days before the deadline. So yeah you will most likely have to wait until pretty close to the actual decision deadline.

With about five days to go, I'm starting to feel a little anxious now. :)

When I received my interview invite a couple of weeks ago it said that in order to render a decision by Feb 15 I would need to complete my interview by Feb 12. Therefore, I expect that since people are still interviewing, no decisions will be rendered until at least the 12th or 13th. But, I could be wrong.



My deadline was also Jan 23rd and I didn't receive my invite until Jan 12th. At that point there were only Skype appointments left. I really wanted to interview in person. I'm not sure why I didn't get an invite until the last minute, but I'm pretty sure it's not a good thing. I also felt like my interview did not go well at all. It was only 20 mins! She just sort of shotgunned questions at me. It was strange. I have my duke interview this Friday when they release their decisions. I hope the bad news doesn't throw me.

I'm sorry to hear it didn't go as well as hoped. You couldn't interview w/ an alumnus in your area?

No kidding, Gorgasali! I just checked my clock and saw that it's almost 9 a.m. in Austin. It's going to be a long week if we have to wait until Friday.

I would always go under the assumption that it is business professional, unless otherwise noted.

No movement as far as I know, but not from lack of refreshing and logging in on my end.

Refreshing probably won't help you either way until late Thur. night. Even though they called me 8 days ahead of time, the McCombs landing page didn't update until late that Thur. Also, the GIAC site didn't update until weeks after the decision deadline.

Just received e-mail from adcom congratulating me on acceptance- official acceptances won't be sent out until Friday though. No idea if this is being sent to everyone or what. It appears I was part of an e-mail list as it was addressed to "undisclosed recipients" and it never mentions my name.
