God, was that weird. As soon as I posted this, I went back to my email and found this:

I too am R3 for Kenan-Flagler. I am really tepid on the school. I want to go into equity research on the buy side and have already been admitted to Wisconsin ASAP Program. While, UNC has a higher overall ranking, I believe the ASAP Concentration is much better than UNC's Investment Management Concentration.

Anways, I am still excited to find out the outcome on March 12. Getting in will only make me feel better about my chances at Yale & NYU in April.

Did anyone else choose to do a telephone interview as opposed to campus visit?

Read the SmartMoney article from Jan on Wisconsin. I think there positives and negatives to ASAP. I know Fidelity recruits pretty strongly at UNC. Wisconsin claims that they go there as well, but I don't see the Businessweek "top hiring firm" info to support Wisconsin's claims of 2 a year to this place and that.

I guess you can include me in the waiting room too. I was waitlisted for R2 so I'm supposed to get another decision on Mar 12. Since the waitlist notification, I 've written an affirmation letter to the adcomm and had a couple of my first year friends put in a good word. We'll see...

I'm waiting to hear from UNC as well. I thought I had a very good interview when I visited, though you can never tell what they think. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Guys and gals

Good to you all. I know the coming two weeks will be hard to bear. But I am rooting for you all.

They have soem impressive candidates lined up in the earlier rounds but the best part would be to have fellow GMATClubbers there.

All the best and God Speed

Mark,

You will not get much useful data from looking at placement stats for the overall Wisconsin MBA Program. If you google Wisconsin ASAP, you will find a web page devoted to the program that lists of companies who has recently hired from ASAP (sorry can't post a link yet). The big plus of the program is that these students are placed in IM, so if you are serious about that as a career choice it provides an advantage over other schools (non top 7). My fear is that while UNC does have some placement in IM, it doesn't have a strong presence and I think the resources may be less than those devoted towards the ASAP Program.

My concern is what if you got to b-school and decided you want to go into corporate finance or something... Granted I don't think I will do this... but who knows. I want to have the option. I think that would be much harder at Wisconsin. But of course I am still educating myself and I will look at the resource you indicated. The head of Fidelity Equities research is on the board of the IM program at UNC though. I might not have it right with Wisconsin... but I think that you are underestimating UNC as well.
