Hey,

How'd it go? Can you shed some insight into the process - was the interview focussed on questions on your resume and career goals or a general conversational discussion?


Hey! So the interview was with a member of adcom, and it was pretty straightforward - going over my experience, why Smith, why an MBA, why now. She also went into a lot of detail on my resume - gaps in employment (even the 2 month gap after graduation, when I was looking for a job), etc. But overall, pretty friendly, and not bad at all.


hey, just got done with my interview a few minutes back... similar stuff as yours... but how did your interview end, i mean do they give any positive signs to candidates whom they plan to recommend positively....


I did my interview with Kecia. She was very friendly. Fingers crossed.

Hey Swetha..

I`m sure that you would`ve connected the dots and prepared a story by now. Only additional point is that be aware how Smith plays a role.
Make sure you focus on that aspect. If possible, talk to one of the ambassadors of the program. They would provide you insights with respect to your goals and
related opportunities at SMITH. Check them out in Smith`s ambassador page.

FROM SmithMaryland Admissions Blog: Building Your Smith Network
Image
By Sophia Shahverdian, December 2011 Graduate of the PT MBA Program

When applying for MBA programs I had one narrow goal: get my MBA!  After attending to orientation and listening to my predecessors talk about their experiences at the Smith school, I realize the Smith MBA’s value was not only in its academics, but its people.

I decided I would benefit me to become more involved and started with my cohort.  I signed up to be a Track Representative, serving as an intermediary between my cohort, professors, and Smith administration.  This gave me an opportunity to work and build relationships beyond the time spent in the classroom.  It also helped me gain insight on the various programs and organizations that are part of the Smith school.  As a part-time MBA in Baltimore, it was hard to feel connected to other satellite campuses or the full-timers in College Park.  Being a track representative helped facilitate making those connections.

In my second year I became involved with the Part-Time MBA Association (PTMBAA) and the Smith Association of Women MBAs (SAWMBA), giving me yet another reason to become more involved and get to know more people beyond my cohort.  My network was growing well beyond Baltimore without having to drive all over the region.

Although I’ll be the first to admit it was hard to find the extra time to be involved, the return on the investment was well worth it.  Post-MBA I’ve been able to reach back to my broad network of Smith MBAs to get career advice, discuss firms I was researching for new job opportunities, gain insights on interview practices, and ultimately become co-workers with former classmates and Smith MBAs.

As an alumnus I make staying connected to Smith a priority.  I volunteer as a PT MBA Ambassador in order to share my experience and insight with Smith candidates and current students.  I’ve also joined the Smith Baltimore Alumni community to continue building relationships with other alumni and support building the Smith community in Baltimore.  I am a Terp and an ambassador of Smith, so it’s critical to take the time to stay connected and help maintain the value of this wonderful program.  I cannot urge you enough to find ways that you can build strong relationships throughout the Smith network that are exciting and engaging to you.  Trust me, it’s time well spent.

Sophia Shahverdian is a 2011 graduate of the PT MBA program.  After earning her MBA she began a career in government consulting with Booz Allen Hamilton specializing in strategic planning, strategic communications, and change management in the civil health market.  She also has experience working in international healthcare consulting and financial services.  In her personal time, she is involved with the Armenian community and enjoys baking sweets.

FROM SmithMaryland Admissions Blog: Why do an Independent Study?
Image
By Jeff Clement, a first year PT MBA student at the DC campus.

Smith offers great opportunities for Part-Time MBA students to complete an independent study as part of their curriculum.  A maximum of six BUXX759 independent study credit hours can be applied to the program of study, but these six hours can be some of the hardest hitting hours on your transcript, allowing you to focus on an area that you are pursuing sooner than the elective schedule might otherwise allow you.

I am working on an independent study project under the course heading BUMK 759 with Dr. Bob Krapfel, and I can already tell that it will be one of my pivotal experiences here at Smith.  As I sat in a few of my classes, I thought to myself “a lot of the things we’re learning in class could be used to improve my organization at work!”

The more I thought about the problems my organization faced, the more it began to sound like a marketing problem.  We needed to clarify our customer value proposition, to nail down a positioning statement, and so on.  With Dr. Bob’s help, I defined the problem a little better and requested to create a marketing strategy for independent study credit.

The process to get it approved as an independent study was very straightforward, and everyone at Smith was very helpful.  I was able to define my own timeline for the project, and focus on the issues that interest me to a much higher degree than even an elective class would allow.  Due to the nature of the project, I found myself pulling in concepts from BUSI 662 Leadership and Teamwork, BUSI 630 Data Models and Decisions, BUSI 650 Marketing Management and BUSI 690 Strategic Management.

Due to some “office politics” I was initially not going to really tell anybody at work for fear of ruffling feathers, but decided that “he who dares, wins”.  As expected, a few people did not like what the report said, but my boss and his boss both said “this is what we needed, but we didn’t know it yet”.  Over a few weeks, even some of my critics realized that it wasn’t personal and started asking me questions.  Some of my graphs started popping up on their slides during meetings, and phrases from the report were being thrown around.  Little by little, my independent study report was creating some positive changes around the office.

I would encourage almost any Smith student to do an independent study, and not to wait until the end of your second year.  Begin to leverage your MBA now in your current position and by creating experience for your resume!  Choose a faculty member who will challenge your ideas and force you to grow.  Choose a topic or problem that you don’t already know the answer to.  You should have moments where you’re asking “how am going to solve this?!”  That’s how you know you’re learning.

Jeffrey Clement is a first year DC PTMBA planning to graduate in December 2014.  He graduated from Georgia Tech in 2008 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and is active-duty Logistics Officer in the US Marine Corps.  He is currently stationed at Marine Barracks Washington, DC.

FROM SmithMaryland Admissions Blog: Ask Julie: Preparing for the GMAT
Image

Dear Julie: I’ve decided to take the GMAT and I’m really nervous. Do you have any tips on how I can prepare for the test? – Shaking in my Boots

Dear Shaking: There are a couple ways you can prepare for taking the GMAT. First off, you can start by taking practice tests online to see how you score.

There are lots of review books out there that have great test taking strategies in them. You can find a list of Official GMAT Review Guides by visiting www.mba.com/store. While this option can be quite cost effective, they won’t do you any good if you don’t have the discipline to work on them.

While a preparation course can be very expensive, it can also be very effective. If you’ve paid $1,500 or more for a review course, you are likely to say “No” to a happy hour invitation and go to class! This may not be the case if you’ve paid $50 for a review guide.

Julie Dellinger is the Assistant Director Part-Time MBA Admissions & Social Media at the Smith School. She received her B.S. Degree from Shepherd University and has been working in communications and marketing since 1999. Her core expertise is in: marketing, public relations, social media marketing, event planning and graphic design. In her personal time, Julie enjoys running (slowly), blogging, live music, drinking wine, spending time with her husband and son, reading, and watching way too much television. If you have an admissions question, email her at [url=mailto:jdellinger@rhsmith.umd.edu]jdellinger@rhsmith.umd.edu[/url].

FROM SmithMaryland Admissions Blog: The Girls’ Gamble is a Smith Legacy!
Image
By Maria Caceres, a first year student in the Smith DC PT MBA program.

The ladies of Smith did it again! The second annual Girl’s Gamble event, led by our own Gina Reilly, PTMBA DC student, was a complete hit. It was an evening filled with poker, a little vino (a special thanks to SWAMBA group for keeping us hydrated), delicious food and new found friends! I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know several fellow MBAers from our Shady Grove Campus as well as our Baltimore Campus. Our various DC cohorts (1st year, 2nd year and 3rd year) were also well represented, and we had over 15 alumni in attendance!

Image

Now, whether it was your very first attempt to a perfect poker face or you were last year’s World Poker Tour winner, FUN was the name of your game that night. This year’s Girl’s Gamble included various professional poker dealers and instructors, not only providing a night of exciting casino style play, but a thorough teaching of the art of poker. Throughout the evening, each player had the opportunity to run through several live hands, and compete for some fantabulous prizes. What’s poker without the winnings piece, right?

After awarding our lucky winners, we were treated to a wonderful and empowering presentation by Sharon Strange Lewis, Director of Graduate Alumni Relations, a fellow Terp, and a 2005 graduate of the Smith EMBA program. Sharon pointed out that our learnings of Poker should be applied to our approach in the business world. In poker, as in business, tenacity, focus and confidence is key when figuring out what is necessary to be the night’s big winner.

A very special thank you to the PTMBAA for all their support and to all those extremely creative and determined Smith women who made this night possible. This was an unforgettable event, and a brilliant reminder of our fellowship and robust presence as women MBAs at Smith.

Maria Caceres was born in Lima, Peru, but has considered Maryland to be her home for the past 25 years. Before she received my BS in Psychology (minor in Human Resources) from University of Maryland, University College, Maria served four years in the United States Navy as a military training specialist and Navy career counselor. Maria was stationed aboard the USS Enterprise, aircraft carrier, based out of Norfolk, VA, for the duration of her military tenure. After the Navy, and simultaneously working through her BS coursework, Maria entered the not-for-profit sector as human resources generalist. Currently, she serves as a strategic partner in human capital planning for American Red Cross HQ.

Does anyone know if part time MBA applicants get interviewed prior to the admit decisions being made? The R1 deadline was on Dec 2nd, and the decisions are supposed to be released on Dec 20, which isn't a lot of time to interview folks. Couldn't find any clear info on the website regarding interviews.

Hey ppl,

I interviewed with Kecia on 11th December. I was asked about my interests outside work and my career progress so far. From there on, it was more of an informative session on how could Smith help me reach my goals.

Regarding the financial documents, this was the reply from adcom "It will not affect the Smith School's recommendation for admission, but you will not be offered full admission from the University of Maryland without these documents and without full admission they cannot begin to process your I20." So, they can issue an I20, only after you upload your financial documents.
