Should get it within a week. That's about the time in which I got mine. :)

Received an admit from Olin yesterday, one day after the skype interview.

I was a round 4 application whose application did not get reviewed in round 4.

How long did it take for Indian admits to recieve the admit package? I am based in Pakistan.


Hey buddy, took us about a week here in India. Should be roughly the same for you, plus minus 2-3 days!

Thanks... But it's of no use :( without scholarship, it's impossible for me. That means kelley and olin are out for me, unless olin has a good loan option. Between vanderbilt and davis, I am more inclined towards davis, coz I wanna eventually work in California... A bit confused right now... Wat would u suggest?

Well Soumya, I definitely wouldn't suggest Vanderbilt or Davis. Considering you will be funding your entire b school experience by taking a loan, both aren't great options from an ROI point of view IMHO. I have also been admitted to Kelley and Olin both and I can tell u that there is a no cosigner loan option at Olin but it is at a 10% interest rate. So, basically better if you have a co-signer as that can get you loans in 3-6%. Having said that, if you don't have anyone in the US, Olin is still not a bad option from a funding point of view. Kelley is a better school in my opinion. Hope this helps!

Hey WatchG, Why do you think that Kelley is a better school than Olin? Olin is ranked higher in U.S news, and also Wash U is definitely a better brand name than Indiana. I'd definitely be interested in hearing your reasoning. I will be attending Olin, and am very happy with my decision.

Am getting a decent scholarship from Davis and Owen... Have already accepted Davis, so unless there is something from Haas or Anderson, that's where I will be... My point is that if I have to take such a hefty loan fir my MBA, I would rather do it from a top 10 or 15 ranking school... Whatsay?

Olin seems to be a better option than Vanderbilt and Davis. Talk to MBA admission team and they might offer some scholarship since they are wrapping up the admission process. I visited the school some days back and everyone seemed friendly and helpful. Good Luck with your admission.

All, one question to the international applicants in this forum.
Those who have already secured VISA, could you please give me a rough estimate on normally how long it took you to get the I-20 from the school? Was it less than 4 weeks (which is mentioned in the school website)?
My DCOF documents were just received by the school on last week. Plz help me with your answer.. :-)

You would need almost 4 weeks to get the I-20 from the school.
