I submitted my App on Feb 6. I am waiting for the response from PT- Chicago GSB. Anyone else in the same boat/got feedback from PT-GSB in the last 2 -3 weeks? Please share you experience.

Thanks!

Did you get any feedback at all on the ding? Did you apply at any other places? Looking back at your application, do you know what you could have done differently?

I got very generic feedback. So it was not useful at all. It was a little annoying as you cannot tell if it's the gmat score or the essays or the career progress etc.

However, my opinion is that getting into the Weekend program at GSB is more difficult compared to getting into the evening MBA at GSB. In the former, you are competing for around 100 seats/ year against applicants from practically all over the US. On the other hand, for the evening MBA, there are 100 seats available per quarter with the student group limited to the Greater chicago area(which is large, but they have 400 seats available).

Anyway, that's my guess. One thing I will say; the GSB folks are truly fantastic in terms of how they assist you during the application process. It's too bad that they didn't tell me specific reasons. But, I am sure that have their reasons.

I have gotten into the Mccombs PT-MBA program. I am also applying to the Saturday MBA at Kellogg.

Where are you applying?

Do you mind sharing your GMAT scores while applying to the Chicago GSB? I would imagine that the GMAT score expectation would be lower as compared to the FT MBA program...

I am planning to apply to the summer quarter of 2008 at Chicago GSB.
I found out about this forum recently and wished that I had known about this forum earlier. It would have helped me immensely in my GMAT preparation and essay preparation.

My Profile:
Indian IT Male :roll:
GMAT : 720
Work Exp : 11 years.

Applying only to Chicago GSB for now. I have a lot of colleagues who are either at Chicago GSB or at Kellogg. For now, I am applying to Chicago only and will think about applying to Kellogg at a later date.

Thanks english_august.

BTW, I read that book (english august) back in 1992 (shows u how old I am). Loved the book when I read it. But never got a chance to watch the movie, although I admire the work of Rahul bose.
But I did buy the book couple of years ago and re-read it.
