At the end of the McCombs webinar today, one of the current students who is part of the McCombs Admission Committee mentioned that interview invites will be sent out up to a week or so before the decision notification date. Just FYI for those who haven't received an invite yet.

No decision notifications will be released until the December 14th deadline. All decisions will be released at the same time on that day.

It is best to refer to the McCombs class profile to understand if your qualifications are within the range of the most recently admitted McCombs class: http://www.mccombs.utexas.edu/MBA/Full- ... ofile.aspx. However, we strongly encourage you to apply because there are many different components of the application that show our applicants different qualities and strengths.

Did anyone else just receive an email from McCombs about the MSTC program? I have interviewed and am awaiting decision for MBA. I wonder if this has anything to do with my MBA application? Anyone have any thoughts? Maybe this was just a marketing email that was sent to everyone.

Yes, just a marketing email sent to everyone.

i'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with MBA. I just received it as well and I have heard nothing yet on interviews

Yes, this email was just additional information on other Master's programs within the McCombs School of Business. It has no impact on your MBA application.

Does anyone know about McCombs' attitude toward re-applicants? Specially the ones who were waitlisted last year?

Re-applicants are given heavy consideration. Be sure to use the optional essay to explain how your application has improved since your last application.

Hi,

I am applying for McCombs Business school in round 2. My GRE score is 323(Q- 164, V- 159 ), its GMAT equivalent is 690.
I have gone through the UT Austin site a myriad times to understand their vision and expectations. Currently I am in the process of filling my application and essays. I am not worried much about LORs as I have 6.4 years of IT experience and did good work. But I am very apprehensive about the essays, it has word limit and I am facing hard time to connect all scattered point and make a story.

Any advice would be good.

Note - My focus is only on UT Austin- McComb business school and I desperately want to join MBA fall 2013 batch, if there is any body from 2012 or previous batches, please let me know if I can pm them for MBA/UT Austin related queries.

Thanks & Regards,
Namrta Mahajan

Essays are extremely important so take your time. Focus on the stories that show you in positive light, something you did during your undergraduate studies or during employment (Think!). Try to be up to the point and not verbose. They are also testing your communication skills by limiting the word limits so focus on the story in one paragraph and on yourself (in relation to the story) in the other. Always get your essays proofread not only by a professional but also by your friends or someone who really knows you. Get their feedback and change accordingly.
Also, research the school website thoroughly. Talk to current students - ask them what made them choose McCombs. Visit the school if possible. Make notes of what the school offers and what your interests among those offers are. Connect your goals to the strong points of the school.

Here's a quick run-down of my interview experience:

- It lasted ~ 1.25 hrs.
- It was a partially blind interview. The interviewer had my resume, but hadn’t seen my essays, letters of recommendation, etc.
- I'm not sure if this still holds true, but as of a couple years ago the interview selection process was actually only based on a quantitative algorithm (nebulous details on the variables). After the interview write-up is submitted, 1-2 second-year students review the file for the first time. If necessary, someone from the actual admissions board will review the application.
- The interviewer spoke very candidly about the process and gave me feedback on how I did (no, I didn't ask the question or solicit the feedback). Thankfully, the interviewer said they were going to recommend my admittance.

Hope this helps.

hey,
This question might be off the current topic but I wanted to know if anyone here knows a way to view the uploaded documents in the Mccombs application system? Unlike other schools application system, Mccombs does not show the uploaded documents, which is very weird. Anyhow, can anyone guide me on this? Thanx

Are you referring to the application itself (bio data, essays, etc.) or the supplemental materials (GMAT report, transcript, etc.)? If you're referring to the application itself, below are the instructions. If it's the supplemental stuff, you can check the status from the GIAC site. I'm not sure the GIAC site will let you view the supp. materials, though, because it's there as a status check.

Dashboard homepage >
Under "Apply Online," click the link "Application submitted" >
Under #1, select, "View your completed and submitted application"
