5 days is not that much. I think out of which only 3 were working days. All the best!


Thanks. Have you already attended the interview? Do you have any suggestions/tips?

As I am from the very common pool of Indian/Male/IT, I dont know what to expect.

Anybody has any tips and ideas for the interview? It would be great to know.

Thanks in advance,

Okay so apparently Smeal have started sending out admission decisions for all those who applied for Oct 4 deadline. Nothing for me yet. I have to be honest, Smeal was my first interview and understandably I was a bit nervous but I think that experience helped me for the two other interviews I have given since.

Still not giving up on Smeal and hoping for some sort of miracle.

Not sure why. Smeal says they are trying to see the best fit. Probably the reason!

Would've been 4 years on joining. I doubt they'll take any people with less. I have a WE in technology with a goal towards IT Consulting. Guess they were looking for someone else. Smeal dinged 4 guys last night that I'm aware of (including you).

Oh my god! Its sad to see Penn Smeal dinging people even with good profiles on the basis that they need a diverse class. :(

Did all of you who were not accepted upload your 2 min optional video about yourselves or at least was asked by the interviewer to upload it?
