I saw some movement on my page, the app status & decision page. There was some statement...'status of your application u can see it here etc'...the statement is gone. Instead, that portion is now just blank. I guess the adcom looked at my file, readying to say something tomorrow friday?

I have a good profile. Still waiting. I haven't heard anything. I guess they are taking their time to send out the interview invites or something.

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 interviewed back in the Fall with an admissions rep before one of those MBA fair events. I since submitted my application on Jan 8th, but haven't heard anything. They have everything they need at this point so it's a little frustrating to not have heard.

I was admitted to my backup program and that whole process went EXTREMELY fast. I know every school does it differently, but it definitely made me antsy. I'm hoping that after Discover Weekend they'll get the ball rolling and send out some acceptance letters.

Hi Owen Vanderbilt,

I'm planning to apply for the 2013 fall.
I have been with IT consulting in risk managament for 6 years but would like to do operations/strategy at owens
Is this advisable? would I have a tough time finding a job post graduation?
Thanks

Hello shankar245,

Thanks for considering applying to Owen! Regarding your question, I would say that as long as you have a good story of why you want to make the transition into operations and how your past experience and skills in risk management relate to that, there shouldn't be major difficulties on finding and internship/job. I mention this, because any company that interviews you will like to see how your previous professional knowledge fits with the position that they might offer to you. Also, you will have the opportunity to take some Ops electives before the internship time and may use that as support. On your 2nd year, you will also have the chance to take a Consulting Operations elective that includes a project with a real client, which you can discuss about in a job interview as part of your experience.
Companies such as Amazon, Kimberly Clark, FedEx and Nissan come every year with operations internship and full time offers. In addition to that, the staff at the Career Management Center will work with you on an individual basis since day 1 to help you achieve your career goals. Also, you can take advantage of the Operations Club's activities to network and know more about career options.

Operations Management Club
The Operations Management Club fosters understanding of the role of operations in corporations. We share knowledge and resources for exploring careers in operations, provide case experience with real-world operations scenarios, work with faculty to expand operations-related offerings at Owen, facilitate networking opportunities and help students develop operations-specific career and interview skills. Events include club meetings, guest speakers and tours, career development workshops, and operations projects with companies in the greater Nashville community.
Contact us at: OpsClub@owen.vanderbilt.edu

Career Opportunities
MBA Operations careers include Operations Management (Service Operations, Manufacturing Operations and Logistics) and Strategy/Operations Consulting.
Selected companies that hired Owen Students - Operations include:
AgeMatrix, Eaton Corporation, Motorola, Amazon, FedEx Corporation, Nissan North America, Cummins Inc, HCA, Tennessee Valley Authority, Danone Group, Johnson & Johnson, The Methodist Hospital, Deloitte, Massachusetts General Hospital, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

That's great! Lots of information!! I will definitely keep in mind these during my application as well Post MBA.
Also My profile is as below :

GRE : 318 q 163 v 155
W ex: 6.5 yrs
Partner(Product marketing) in a firm with 4 employees
decent community activities( My own NGO)

If I'm going to ask you whether I stand a chance, that will be absurd.May be if ask whether such profiles thrive @owen would be a better question.
kindly let me know the same .
Thanks

You're welcome!
Yes, it's hard to make an assessment based only on a brief profile, but on terms of thriving at Owen, I can tell you that here we have many smart people from a wide variety of backgrounds. In my class for example, you can find designers, journalists, engineers, doctors, economists, etc. The common factor among them is that they all work hard and help each other. What is said about Owen's tight knit community is true. Professors, TAs, students; all are open and willing to help you learn and succeed. Also, class participation carries a weight in your course grade, and with 6.5 yrs of experience, I believe you may be able to share some valuable insights and opinions.

my app has been complete for a few weeks now. hopefully we can hear back soon. best of luck, alexvv23!


Same here. I think the earliest we'd start hearing is late next week. From those who were accepted in the previous round (and last year's Round 2), Owen calls those they accept on an individual basis.... generally during the week of the formal deadline. Good luck everyone!
