Question here to those who already finished their apps. In the first essay where they ask you about short term goals and what skills you need to build/develop, did you include HOW you plan to develop these skills upon entering Gtown? I kind of want to put that there, but they arent' asking for it.


I only included skills that could be gained at McDonough or through business school in general and drew a link to those needed skills and what the school offers. I don't know if you have enough room to go into how.

Hi everyone! Just a quick question, just paranoid to make sure I follow the instructions. Are the transcripts the only thing I have to send by mail? Is there anything else?

Thanks

I think you have to have your official transcripts and gmat report sent to them if you haven't already, if I remember correctly.

I referred to the 2011 thread for some clarification, but wanted to sound off here for more up to date confirmation. Saw online that McDonough requires official transcripts post-marked by the deadline date, and all later transcripts will be considered for the next round. What's the current take on this? If all other parts of the app is in, will a few days postponement of the transcript being considered for R2? :cry:

McDonough never received the first transcript that my school sent. The admissions office emailed me after I submitted my application (and after the deadline) to tell me that I had 5 days to get my transcript in to still be considered for Round 1. I wouldn't worry too much about it but you might want to email your admissions manager and let them know it will be a few days late.

Here is the email:
I am writing to provide you with an update regarding your application to Georgetown University's Full-time MBA Program.

At this time your application is currently incomplete and missing credentials which are required for the final review of your application by the Admissions Committee.

Your credentials must be received no later than Thursday, November 10, 2011 in order for the Admissions Committee to review your application as part of round 1. After that date, your application will be moved to round 2.

Application for Admission was submitted on 1/5/2012 11:59:00 PM EST :shock:

A little too close for comfort. It's in though!

R2 applicants, when we get the confirmation that our app is complete, lets post them here! I wonder how long will it take them to receive it?

From Admission Manager email:
"Due to the high volume of mail that we receive, we are unable to individually verify the receipt of application materials. You can track your application status, including when materials have been received and processed, online via the following link. Please note that it may take up to four weeks after the deadline for the status of application materials to update"

Hi,

I am a graduating law student set to matriculate at Georgetown Law for a masters in securities and financial regulation. I have worked for three years in the investment management field (institutional client service and marketing) before law school and interned at the SEC in Washington. I am a CFA L3 Candidate. My goal is to join a law firm and start a 40 Act practice, or go directly to a investment manager in a legal/compliance role.

My question for you all is the following: If I were to take a course or two at the business school next year, which course would you recommend? Which professors are the best?

Thanks.

For some folks, I guess the Ad Com must've liked everything they put out there that quickly, right?

Either that or applicant pool dropped?

The R3 deadline in the previous cycle was Friday, April 1st. I received an interview invite by Tuesday, April 5th. I did submit on Monday, March 28th, though, so that could have helped me get the quick invitation.

random question - am i the only one that doesn't have "application status" on my log in?

i log on to the portal, as directed, and clicked on application for admissions..... but i don't have an "application status" button on the top left of the page (as noted in the email from the admissions director)

is that the hyperlink that will appear in 4 weeks so i can check my status?

thanks!!

Your submission status should be right below the "application for admissions" link...
Or if you click on the "application for admissions" link, your status should be on the right side.

my application status is submitted, but i have no way to check and see if georgetown received all of my materials... like my transcripts, for example.

this is what i'm talking about. i don't have this option.

After submitting your application, check the Application Status Section to ensure that all supplemental materials have been received and processed. To access this section:
Click the Application for Admission link below;
Locate the Application Status link at the top of the menu at the left side of the webpage;
Determine which materials, if any, are missing; and
Submit missing materials.

I believe Georgetown will send you something within four weeks of your submission. Right now, it's probably pretty hectic there as they sort out whose transcript goes where, etc.
