Hope to see you guys at Danforth.


I am impressed by the quick turnaround time by the adcom! Good job by the school !
And congrats to you, Jacobwang ! :-D

Did you get any $$$ along with your admit? And how did you learn of your admit? Was it through an email or a call from Ms Jan Snow? You must be really happy now that you are going to a great program this fall.


Thank you. I am still waiting for the package and expecting some surprise. Finger crossed.
I get an email from Evan, the associate Dean.
Wish u all the best with your application.

I just paid the $1,500 deposit :-D Another $1,000 due in a month's time.
Why is it so quiet in here? Many other b-schools discussion forums are buzzing with activities!

Olin may not be as highly ranked as other programs but it's nevertheless a respectable program. It definitely deserves more love than what it's getting! Hope to see more Olin admits in here!

@ akkyy21 - what about you? Have you decided? Come to St Louis!

Congrats Jacobwang! What's your decision? Have you paid the 1.5k deposit to Olin? Admittedly, a full tuition waiver is hard to walk away from. Both Olin and Carlson are good programs. If you ask me, I'd say that Wash U probably has a stronger reputation overall as compared to Minnesota due to the strength of other Wash U schools. Of course, this is based on my own experience. Shall refrain from talking too much about other schools here, since this is an Olin discussion thread i.e. I should be plugging for Olin! :P

I'm glad to see a little bit more activity in this forum, though I am sure the no. of pages of discussion can never hit the phenomenal levels of other more popular b-school since the level of interest in Olin is not as high amongst GMATClubbers.

I'm aware that quite a number of admitted applicants have given up their spots, along with some scholarship $ for various reasons. For those of you who are genuinely keen to attend Olin, but have financing difficulties, I think it's a good time to write to the Adcom to explain your situation and see if you can get some scholarship $? Those scholarship $ have to be given to someone anyway, and it makes good sense for them to use those $ to attract admitted applicants who are keen but unable to attend. Just my 2 cts' worth.

On a sidenote, is anyone able to shed light on why Olin's MBA program is not as highly ranked as other programs?
I know ranking is a very superficial exercise but let's face it - most applicants do take into consideration the ranking of a program in making a decision on whether or not to apply and enroll in a program. My guess is that since Olin doesn't place as well in consulting/finance (which pays top dollars to attract talents), the average salary has been pulled down, leading to a fall in Olin's ranking. And for a small program like Olin's, the impact on avg salary of not having a large % of the students going into consulting/finance will be even more significant due to a smaller student base. Any other views?

Do you had your interview already? Any specific questions? Or just the standard interview questions?

I interviewed with Kevin, and all my questions were pretty standard. Why mba, short & long term goals. Why Olin. How do you deal with conflict in a team / give an example.

I have a lot of different responsibilities at work, so I was asked what a typical day might look like for me, and how do i juggle all of the responsibilities at once.

My interview was approx 40 minutes, there was so set length, with the understanding that it would take approx 30-45 minutes.
