R2 applicant here. It seems like any R2 applicants who haven't heard by now are very likely to get waitlisted or dinged on the decision day (based on last year's thread)...

***sigh***

Wait a couple of days. Some answers were released very recently. Don't panic :) I have a quite strong profile for Simon to be dinged/waitlisted even without an interview. Actually, Simon was a back up of my back ups ), so it's unlikely that all interview invites are already released.

I actually already had an interview way back in November. Just waiting for the result now... Another restless night... :(

Then I'm mistaken, I actually happen to be R3 applicant. Have not you applied to other schools or is there anything special for you in Simon?

I did apply to other schools, but I'll have to say all the schools I applied to are special to me one way or the other :)

Good luck to everyone applying to Simon. I was fortunate enough to have some of the Simon professors for a few of my undergraduate classes, and I can say that the faculty is truly wonderful. I was contemplating applying to Simon without any work experience last year (as they do take students with no work experience), but was told by current students who were at the time pursuing the MBA program that it is very hard to land internships without (quality) work experience from Simon. One of these students had an impeccable gpa and was in the 3-2 MBA program.

If anyone is considering attending Simon due to the fact that work experience is not required, I would suggest thinking long and hard about that decision.

As a current student I will second the comment about the Early Leaders with a caveat, if you come in with no work experience expecting to land a traditional MBA internship then you're going about your process the wrong way. While there are a few companies who look specifically for candidates with <2 years of experience, for the most part you're looking at a crop of internships different than what your peers are looking at. For example, we have a number of Early Leaders who have landed into the Analyst program for some of the top IBs because the MBA puts them well above their competition.

Also academics at Simon really is the highlight of the school. The FT ranked us top 10 in Finance, Econ, and Accounting this year and that reputation is reflected in the intelligence and interest the faculty show for the student body.

Received my acceptance yesterday, but I'm turning down the offer.
I hope this opens a spot for a WLer. :)

Simon is a great school and I know a few people who are currently in the full-time MBA.
I've also lived in Rochester for a few years, so if any accepted candidates have any questions about the school/city, feel free to PM me.

Good luck everyone. :)
