Got the mail too. But i've already been invited to interview.. So, i guess it doesn't really matter.


I think initially they probably dished out interview invites without going through the entire app. They might have sent it to the top GMAT/GPA folks or something. Now they are going through each and every app, steadily.

I am Vijay and am from India. I had my interview yesterday evening over skype. So here goes. I got a call from the interviewer at the precise time. She was friendly and introduced herself as an adcom member. She then said she hadn't gone through my application entirely and asked me to feel free to repeat anything that I might have already mentioned in my essays / profile. Then she started with her questions.

1. Why MBA?
2. What are your long term goals? And after I answered that, she asked me about my short term goals.
3. Why Tepper?
4. Describe one situation at work where you succeeded working as a team. Where you had to collaborate with a team, either as a leader or as a team member.
5. Describe a situation where you failed. What did you learn from that failure?
6. How do you respond to situations where you need to interact with people from other cultures?
7. What are your interests outside of work?

By the time I answered these questions, we were down to the last 2 mins of the 30 min interview. Then she wanted to know if I had any questions. After she answered my question, she hung up. Totally lasted about 31mins. Overall, it was cool and friendly. Also, no technical questions. It was a pleasant experience.

Hope this is useful.

I am applying from Pakistan... Well its kind of annoying now! been 2 weeks already.

I hope they get it done this week. Some interview invites (to the best of my knowledge) were only sent on 9th October. So maybe they have not started the actual assessment just yet.

Just checked the events portal. They dont have any Telephone or Skype interview spots open as of now. But they do have many On Campus interview spots open. They might convert these On Campus interview spots to Skype interviews and send out another wave of invites! Hang in there! :)

Hi All,

Has anyone from received an email with the Missing application materials, and then with the below information on the application link?

Your transcript from XXX university does not include a grading scale. You must submit this to us at tprmadm@andrew.cmu.edu with the subject line "APPLICATION UPDATE". Please make sure the email includes your name as listed in your application and the program for which you are applying. Your application will remain incomplete and will not be forwarded to the Admissions Committee until this has been received.

I did my undergrad in India and my engineering school used percentage as the grading scale (which is quite common), but its not mentioned in the transcripts.

Can you please suggest as to what needs to be done? Did any one from India receive a similar email?


I received the same mail. Not quite sure as to what I should do.
Has your issue been solved? What did u do?

Just got an email that my file is under review but the status on 'applyyourself' did not change. So do not worry too much. I think you will get an email when they are ready to look at your application.

Does anyone know how Tepper treats those from non-business/tech backgrounds? Other than that, I fit the profile perfectly, and have a lot of entrepreneurial experience.

Status just changed to Under Review, after they sort out my grading scale. I guess they are just getting to the bulk of the applications.

when you say that your app's status changed to 'Under review', do you mean that the status in the online form got changed or did you get a mail that your app is under review? M worried, coz my status in the online form still says that its submitted. No change, nothing.
