Don't worry, you'll get it soon, I got in a month after getting admitted! And I assume dead-line is the same for everybody, so it is August 17th. If they have any problems with billing you can always send them receipt or whatever else you get in a bank.

If you still in doubts about the choice between Bocconi and St. Gallen, for finance St. Gallen is way higher for employers. I know German IS difficult, but we all will make it:)

I know, living in a German speaking city and studying it, I guess it won't be that hard learning German..
At the presentation here at Bocconi, they told us that in 2011 in the Investment Banking sector, Bocconi has been the university that has provided the biggest number of graduates in Europe..I don't know how the statistics were made, but Bocconi is not bad either..

But St Gallen has a bigger international exposure, and I think quality of teaching is higher..And besides I wouldn't mind working in Switzerland at all :)

Just to have an idea, where do you guys accepted at St Gallen come from?Previous universities and nationality? :-D

And again, does anyone know what Grades still outstanding mean?Does it mean exams at the universities still outstanding?!But if I have to send them a degree certificate, doesn't that suppose you don't have any exams left? :)

Hi all,
pretty cool to find some people also accepted for the mbf program. My profile: Im chilean, studied in the US (NYU Stern) and did internships in several european countries (germany, switzerland and spain) and fortunately got accepted 2 weeks ago with a GMAT of 710. Afterwards, i am planning to work in europa (probably germany or switzerland). My german level is between mediocre and good id say, and i will definitely try to improve it during the time in switzerland.

May be i can help. Do you mean the notifications in red color in the serviceportal (serviceportal.unisg.ch)? Do not worry about that, they would send you an email if anything was missing. But anyways, just call the admissions office, they are very kind.

Anyone else from latin america in the forum? havent read all the other pages.. :oops:

Very nice background, congrats!

I guess I'm among the youngest here, and I'm probably the only one without a work experience :?
I come from Italy, I moved to Milan to study for the undergraduate in Economics and Finance at Bocconi University, where I'm about to graduate, and I'll be in St Gallen in September :)
I'm 21..

Hey guys,

I thought I'll give an update on my affairs. I got admitted (zugelassen mit Vorbehalt) in May, however, I was neither informed about the decision by E-Mail nor by mail. I found out thorugh the HSG Service Portal. Few documents were missing (Original Degree certificates ect.). About a month later I finally received a letter of admission along with a list of supplementary courses that I have to complete within the first year of my studies.

Among them are: Microeconomics III and Empirical Economic Research (A total of 12 credits).
Thereafter, I sent in my original documents and the status in the HSG Service Portal changed to "definitiv zugelassen".

My profile:
I did my undergraduate in Germany, Goethe University in Frankfurt. Then I went to Chicago to participate in a year-long volunteer programme with the elderly people and just to travel a bit. I came back to Germany and did/am doing a half-year internship in Corporate Finance. So I am a little bit older than average hehe, I am 24. I'll be on leave during July and August prior to the start in St. Gallen. Originally I am from Sri Lanka :)

Housing:
Right now I do not have a clou where and how I am going to find housing. I plan to travel several times to St. Gallen during July and August. If anyone is interested to establish a living community, feel free to let me know. I think the best way to find affordable yet a pleasant place to live is by renting a full apartment and then sharing it with 2 or max. 3 other students. There are a lot of advantages that way. If you guys are interested we could meet up there and visit a few apartments.

Questions remaining:
- Did you guys receive a seperate letter stating the payment procedure of tution fees?
- Where can I read more about the bidding process for courses?
- Does anyone else has to take the same supplementary courses as I do?

Yours sincerely

Hey guys,

my friend who was also accepted to MBF has made a facebook group for our intake. Its name is HSG MBF 2012. There will be lots of topics to talk about (e.g. accomodation, bidding etc.), please join us since it is much more convenient to talk there.

I've been to St.Gallen last week, the city is beautiful and everybody is really nice, so I advise all of you to go there ASAP and get a feeling about it. :)

Hi Jaffnakid,

I have received the admission letter, but no fee invoice yet, so I guess they come in different letters, though some guys have already received them both..
But I asked to receive a scan image of the fee invoice and they've sent it through email!
No idea about the bidding process, I myself have asked about it here :)

Hi Guys,
I have just received an email from HSG stating that I have been shortlisted for the scholarship program. I have to make an application to fight for the final reward. Has anyone else received such an e-mail?

If you guys login into ServicePortal then you'll find all the information about the bidding process.
Another question: I still did not receive an invoice for the semester fees. How do you pay them? Is there a procedure described at the HSG website?

You should request the zulassung for the invoice. And you can check the amount due on the service portal. Go to my personal data>>account statement.

:) yes just as ronnie says, you could ask the admission office to send you the invoice and the amount is shown in your serviceportal.
The details about the beneficiary's bank account is the same when you pay your application fee. If you need, I could send you PM.

Hey guys, reading the earlier posts, I see that some of you have gotten an opportunity for a scholarship. I've got it too. Just curios as to how many people actually got the scholarship opportunity or is it that we all get that e-mail? Any ways, losing my mind about the housing. Is any one interested in sharing an apartment? I found a few places myself but I'm really not sure how close they are to the university. Also, I don't speak German causing a bit of a problem as I can tell. How are you guys going about the housing and lodging?

I too have been shortlisted for the scholarship, which is meant for intl students. A total of 20 students have been shortlisted for the single grant. It will be extremely competitive. I predict luck to be playing a pivotal role as only 1 candidate out of 20 will make the cut.
