Hey Guys..

Its seems that some of you have already been interviewed, and sadly some have been denied admission. :?
Can you please give some tips on how to tackle the interview questions and what mistakes not to make during interview(Which you might have committed )

I'm still little puzzled on how to ans the question " Why Olin". Can anyone provide a suitable answer that is Olin specific.

Thanks


For my response to "Why Olin?" I just talked mainly about the academics for half of my answer and talked about culture and location for the other half. I talked about how Wash U is really close to Forest Park (which is humongous) and Delmar Loop (which has a great amount of restaurants and "young people" places) so the location is great. I talked about the small class sizes (In undergrad I had some classes with 100 or more students in them so being in a smaller class is very appealing to me) and collaborative culture. The most important thing I think I talked about was how Olin's classes and professors would help me achieve my career goals. For example, if I wanted to go into marketing I would talk about how learning consumer behavior from Dr. Joseph Goodman will lead me to, I don't know, make a gazillion dollars and I would talk about how taking a specific marketing course at Olin would help me learn a skill I need. The more specific, the better because I feel that showing that you did your homework will always get you brownie points. That's just my advice.

@ GREnade

Thanks for the tips buddy. Will try to implement few, in case I get a chance to..

@ avinashdundoo
I too am waiting for there reply. I applied on 29th Sept, and my status still reads "in review with admission committee".
But I'm getting a feeling that it might be too late now to hope for anything, given that people who submitted their applications on 27th have already been interviewed.

Anyways fingers crossed..

Hi, I submitted the application on October 1. I haven't heard anything from them as yet.
Has anyone who submitted around the deadline received the interview invite as yet?

I submitted my application on the 26th of September and still haven't heard anything yet. Still "in review with admissions committee" or whatever verbiage they use. I guess no news is good news...?

I wish I could have said yes..
The people who have been interviewed have mentioned that their status is still " in review". So that means that the college isn't updating the status as yet, and just skipping the profiles they don't like.. :|
