Just had interview with McCombs. They told me that I will be notified of decision on 29.3.



After receiving what seemed to be the buzz off email yesterday, I went ahead and contacted the admissions committee to clear up my confusion last night. They told me the same thing (i.e. that there was a miscommunication with me and that no decisions would be relayed until March 29).

I'm a little late in posting this, but I'm in. I got the call from admissions on Wed. 2/13 and got the email on Fri. 2/15. Congrats to all admits so far.

My Consortium application was submitted in the first round. Only very recently and after others received their decisions was my status updated from 'incomplete' to 'in review' after an email was sent asking how why that was the case. Turns out, my birthday on my GMAT score report and Texas application was different by two years. Given that my Consortium application and GMAT score report has always been correct and both match, McCombs must be manually by hand migrating data from Consortium applications to their Texas systems as computers don't make sure errors.

@ All those who interviewed over Skype

The interview e-mail confirmation says that "If you requested a Skype interview, your interviewer will confirm the Skype ID and information with you directly one or two days prior to the interview date."

My interviewer is 'Interviewer Eight'; So, how do I share Skype ID with the interviewer?? I still haven't got any email from Adcoms asking me to share my Skype ID.. and my interview in tomorrow..

I received email from my interviewer 23 hours before the interview. She sent me her Skype ID and i confirmed mine once more.
That was it.
On the time of the interview I tried to reach her and she did not respond but she called me a minute later.

Interview started pretty formal. She asked me where I grew up and my high school experience. Also asked me about my career and why did I make decision to leave the company and then return to the same company two years later. Why am I interested in obtaining an MBA. Why McCombs. Why energy finance. Three things that my supervisor would say about me and to elaborate one of them. Is there anything I want to achieve prior to starting MBA. What was unexpected during my undergraduate studies. And of course my questions to her. It lasted total about 25 minutes.

We will see how it went on March 29th. :-D :-D


Thanks for the heads-up!!

Congratulations!

I'm wondering....Do you think accepting an offer and paying tuition right away decreases your chances of getting a scholarship?

Thanks guys!

Spouser - Hard to say, but you might as well wait a couple weeks for all of the scholarships to go out. There really isn't a benefit to paying the deposit early I wouldn't think.

About 15% of in-state tuition. Nothing too substantial but certainly a nice gesture.


What do you mean 15% of in-state tuition? Do you already get in-state, so it's 15% on top of that?

Well I've heard scholarships are rare from mccombs so congrats. Hopefully they still have more to send out.

I'm a R2 applicant and I just received the email that links to the Admitted Students website. Lots of good info about the upcoming Admitted Students weekend, financial aid, etc.

Optional quantitative boot camp is July 29th. Orientation is Aug. 5th. I'm not sure about Int'l student stuff, though.
