nehamahajan,
I got the info about the notifications, the dates are all here http://www.simon.rochester.edu/programs/full-time-mba/admissions/application-deadlines/index.aspx#.

Simon releases decisions on a rolling basis leading up to the deadline stated in the link above. So, some people may hear prior to the date, but decisions will go out even up to and including the day promised. Students usually get an email as soon as their decision is published so that they can go in and view it.

Hope this helps!

Hey Prof,

I have a question on housing at Simon. How does on campus housing compare to off campus at Simon. Which one would you suggest to a prospective student and what are the reasons in terms of cost, comfort, accessibility to campus and facilities etc.?

Thanks

Interview
My interview was with an Adcom member. It was very conversational and very relaxing. I was asked a lot of the application essay questions as well as why Simon is the best fit for me. In addition, I was asked for examples where I had demonstrated leadership skills and team work. Strengths and weaknesses were asked. Finally, there was a question about if you get accepted at every school you have applied; which one would you choose and why (have a good answer for this one). I also received 40k in scholarship and I am hoping to get more $ by participating in Case Competitions during the scholarship weekend.

Hope this helps!

Good Luck to all of you!


Congratulations on the admit. In which round did you apply and when were you interviewed?
