this is one intrusive application!

i'm new to applying for us business schools (so far have been finishing up Canadian mba apps) so maybe this is the norm, but the app wants to know my income, family income, father's job, mother damn college degrees!

My app for kelley is not at all this intrusive. Is this normal for us apps?


I was thinking the same thing when I filled it out. Not sure why that's important. Actually, from a school's perspective I guess I do but I would hope that's not how they make a decision.

None of the other schools I applied to asked me that.

I think I am going to apply to Owen. Do you guys think applying now will be okay, since I already missed early action and R1? I know it doesn't really make a difference at this point because I can't apply earlier, but just curious if you guys think it will hurt my chances since two rounds of applicants will have already been admitted

You should be fine. The only possible thing that could affect you is the amount of financial aid they still have available.

Hi,

I'm a first year student at Vanderbilt. I will be around to answer any queries and assist for anything I can.

Has anybody decided to matriculate at Owen?

I turned in my Owen application the other day. Now waiting! Just to point out, I have a messy UG GPA, so so GRE scores, an MPH =GPA 3.71, finishing an MA -International Relations =GPA 3.84 etc. I guess i will be the guinea pig, where the question is: If you have a wacky UG GPA, so so GMAT scores, but stellar work experience, stellar graduate school record, of course, a stellar application, can you get into the best programs?

Hi all,

Just got the call. In with 30k/year! Pretty happy with the award but was also wondering whether schools ever increase awards? I had been thinking of putting an app into Emory for their January round and maybe UT or UI before their next rounds...

Hope everyone else is getting good news right about now!

Dear Round 2 applicants like me, heard anything yet from the Owen people? The waiting, killing me. My file was complete way before the R2 deadline of Jan 9th.

I'm applying for the MAcc, not an MBA.

For the 2nd essay question (what can I add to the Owen community as student/alum?), can someone offer advice here? I have no idea what to say?

Also, are you at a serious disadvantage if you apply during the 4th admission round?

I submitted mine before the deadline as well and have not heard anything yet. I'm guessing they received a few more applications this round and it's taking them a bit longer to process. Best of luck.
