That's awesome, congrats! :-D

Still chillin' out here, no word at all since the Consortium forwarded my app on the 18th, but hopefully the ball will get rolling soon.

Thanks. I know they were off for T-day, and it seemed pretty hectic. I think I had turned mine in on Nov. 2.

Got my admit pack today, and they gave me 75% scholarship. I didn't expect anything. With the low cost of living in St. Louis and how impressive the admissions committee has been, it will be difficult to turn down. I was admitted Tuesday and they shipped it to Munich by Friday. Very fast. I would expect a very fast turnaround if I were you. Anyone seriously considering Olin?

I was interviewed on 29th and they wrote the letter of admit on 30th itself!!
Ms. Snow Jan interviewed me and she told me upfront that I was a good fit for Olin.

I received my packet on 2nd Dec. I am delighted at being awarded the Dean's full scholarship. :wink: :twisted:

I am awaiting post-interview decision from Ross and Boston University.
Awaiting interview invites from UNC Kenan Flagler and Tuck as well.

All the best guys!!

@mirantdon - we've been in touch on BTG. I've just wrapped up R1 interviews(except ISB R2) Considering Olin 4th jan deadline. I think u are also from MFG.

I have a pretty solid background in MFG/operations. 4 yrs work ex and decent adacs/GMAT.
Olin is overall a very good school. But is it the place to be for a MFG/SCM guy ?


My R1 schools :
1>Kelley- interviewed
2>Smeal- INterviewed
3>ISB- expecting a call soon

@JH- I read on the other thread u had an offer from Kelley wit a schol. How would you compare Kelley with Olin {Can u provide heads up on SCM/operations at Olin}.

Dude , i am in the same boat. i intend to focus on scm and operations as well.

I precisely asked the same question when asked do you have any questions for us ?

She was quite buoyant about the prospects of operations and scm in the coming years. But you never know, the only way is by talkin to people who are studying there. I talked to a couple of them, but they also had similar things to say.

but how could u apply to a school where u dnt know about the stregth of the curriculum in an area(operations/scm). :roll:

Kelley is a marketing school but it has a great SCM curriculum and greater SCM careers. So I applied there. I applied to Smeal as its one of the top 5 in SCM.

Need a similar reason to apply to Olin - I agree its a great school brand wise and otherwise-but looking for an insider's perspective for my preferred concentration.

@jordanhendrix- kindly help

Hi Olin applicants! FYI if you're applying through the Consortium Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), hop over to the Consortium 2012 Forum and Update Your Profile to reflect that you are applying through the Consortium.

It's simple. Just select your school as "Consortium, the", then indicate which specific institution(s) you'll be applying to and the Consortium round you'll be applying in. You can do all of this easily through the handy 'Add to Your Schools' link on the front page of the Consortium 2012 Forum.

We have a special analytics specifically for those candidates applying via Consortium and lots of useful tips for your application and assessment of your candidacy.

Cheers!

Hi all,

I have been invited to interview in the coming weeks. Can anyone please share more specifics of their interview experience?

So far, ciduo777 said the process is pleasant, and his interviewer asked tailored questions about his resume and not the standard questions. Does this ring true for anyone else?

Additionally, can someone please confirm that these interviews are only conducted by admissions directors and that they have already read your application (not blind interview format)?

Thanks!

I am awaiting result from Ross before I submit my first installment to Olin.
A full tuition waiver is something that is hard to refuse in any case.

The easiest career switch for me would be into IT Consulting role. But at Olin it seems I will have to network a lot to get an internship and then a job.

Can some current student help me with any information about IT consulting recruitment at Olin ?
I have also heard that Olin has hired someone from Kelley in 2010 to improve its career services function. So can someone from Olin throw
some light on that as well?

Just get a feeling though that Olin is trying to get its act together after few graduates came down heavily on the BusinessWeek's graduate comments section citing the inefficacy of the career services at the school. Surely no one desires those sort of comments from alumni.

That's a very difficult question to answer. Depends on the rest of your profile.

Indians tend to be the most competitive pool of applicants with regards to GMAT.
Olin received 70% of it's applications from International applicants and I would assume that Indians are the biggest chunk in that group.
Olin is generous to not charge any application fee and that is probably one of the main reason.

So I will think that anything beyond 700 will help you to be competitive in any of the top 30 ranked programs (as per latest US News ranking).

I have a similar offer from Smeal-SCM and I think at this point of time an admit with tuition waiver would be the wisest investment in a US mba.

Hey, so I can only speak for Olin here, I came here over kelley ultimately for a few main reasons:
Money
Location is more city like than Bloomington ( a true cow town)
The vibe I got when visiting was different, Olin seemed to be a place where we still had bright students who are very collegial. I was right.

As far as SCM goes ew are strong in that area because of an amazing professor (taught at booth for years) and our MS in SCM, both of those things bring lots of companies looking for SC interns/fulltimes. Companies include Boeing, Toyota, Monsanto, Nestle, some boutique consultancies and even delloite operations. I really can't say if Kelley id better or not.
