Doing a dual degree - so took GRE instead of GMAT. Does that matter...guys/gals?

I'm already in a masters program at UT, and applied to McCombs in R2 for the dual-degree. I used my GRE scores, so I guess I will see soon enough.

Admissions gives no preference to GRE or GMAT - whichever you feel you can perform your best at!

Regarding interview, can someone please advise if it is preferable to do on-campus versus off-campus? My husband go this R3 interview invite, but since we are based in Toronto, it's quite a long flight and big investment.

There is definitely no preference in doing an on or off campus interview. If you have not visited campus yet, the interview is a great excuse to get to campus. However if it is not financially feasible, that is definitely understood, which is why Admissions offers the opportunity to do the interview with an alumni in your area.

I did my McCombs interview on-campus a few weeks ago with a member of the AdCom. I had the option of doing it with a student, but I opted not to. Personal preference, not really any other reason behind it (it was my first interview, so I wanted to do it with an AdCom).

I looked online through several blogs and found a number of the same questions for the McCombs interview, which all seemed to pop up during my conversation. Things like, "tell me about yourself"/"walk me through your resume", etc. (the major ones), but I did get surprised by a couple of questions.

Namely, "what is the first impression someone has when they meet you?", "if you could change something at the company you work for, what would it be?" and "why did you choose your undergraduate institution?" I got tripped up on the first and last of these questions, as I was not expecting them, so my advice would be to be ready to answer questions that you may not have prepared for.

As for blind or read, I can't say, as it was not brought up.

Hope this helps! Just be yourself and you'll do just fine.

Hey Krasher,

Thanks for the detailed information. I really appreciate it. This will be my first interview as well. I still don't understand the benefit of interviewing with Adcom member over doing it with Second Year.

I concur with you; first and last question would have stumped me as well.

Thank You and Good Luck!

Sumeet,

If you happen to impress the Adcom member while he/she interview you, then you have an edge as that person will be there in all the discussion related to your application. He will be your advocate. A second year guy will not be there when the decision is being made. Good luck.

I was wait listed and I actually received an email today (1/17) from the McCombs ad comms. They want me to "submit a video interview to help them learn more about my candidacy and interest in their program."

same here, I too got a mail to submit a video interview.. anyone familiar with the process please let us know what kind of questions are asked..

I got the email too .. anyone of you submitted it. I am going to take it tonight or tomorrow. Please share the questiones of the process..its a first!

One more question about the video submission.. Did every waitlisted candidate get a mail asking to submit the video? or was this required only for a selected few waistlisted?

Can a current student (or a very knowledgeable applicant) tell me what McCombs mean when they mention "official transcripts" to submit with my deposit. Should it come directly from my college or can it be a scanned document? Thanks.

It should be sealed and signed transcript. In the case of McCombs, it can be mailed either directly from your undergraduate school or mailed by you. Scanned and uploaded copies are not considered official.

Thank you.

When did you submit your application? I submitted mine on 23rd right before midnight, but haven't heard anything yet. Wondering if they send invites the same day, or on a rolling basis.

Rolling basis up until a week or two before the decision deadline.

Ugh. Don't remind me. I think it is ironic that McCombs is waiting until the day after Valentine's Day to break people's hearts. Caveat: Not everyone will be disappointed.

I saw that some people already got invites for rd3? What is it based on? Luck of the draw or quality of your candidacy?

I'm anxiously awaiting hearing about the R2 decisions. I saw that for Round 1, some people were notified that they were admitted about 8 days before the notification deadline. If it works the same this time, that could mean some of us might hear something next Thursday.

I got the email too .. anyone of you submitted it. I am going to take it tonight or tomorrow. Please share the questiones of the process..its a first!
The video interview was 3 questions, with a 90 seconds time limit for each response...for a total 4 minutes and 30 seconds MAX. I was expecting about a half hour!

First question: why would you be a good fit with McCombs?
Second question: what would you change about the McCombs curriculum?
Third question: what clubs would you like to join?

It was really odd for me to not have the instant feedback from seeing an interviewer's reactions and no ability to interact. Also, your computer displays how you look in your video, so it's like dictating an essay into a mirror. I felt quite awkward, while I'm quite comfortable in face-to-face interviews.

I thought that the video interview would be my chance to jump onto the accepted list, but it was a strange experience that didn't leave me feeling confident.

Good luck to you other waitlistees.

Probably safe to say Round 2 invites are done going out at this point, right? Really should have waited for Round 3 and crafted a better app.
