...wait, he must. He can't do anything, but wait for the adcom to make their decision.

"But i have been waiting for more than six weeks," he says.
"You must have faith in the olin adcom system," a voice says.
"But but but...,"
"But what?" the voice says. "Besides you wouldn't want the olin adcom to make a wrong rush decision, would you? Like dinging you?"
"I understand that, its just that, this waiting has tripled my blood pressure. Likely that i will spend the proceeds of an MBA buying medication for high blood pressure."

And so, he waits. Yes, wait he must for the adcom to take action....

R3 applicant. Interviewed on 14th Feb. Got an admit yesterday!

@zirconium,
My Interview has been scheduled on 6th Mar. As you have already appeared for the interview , can I get some tips from you?


Hey,

Mine was very relaxed. It was with Andrew Toussaint and he confirmed upfront that its blind.

The questions were mostly targeted at getting to know me better.

The questions were:

How did to get you this point in your career? Why did you take the decisions you took?
Why MBA
Why Olin
Whats the difference between a good boss and a bad boss(from my own experience.. Not in general)
Hobbies/Interests

Then, I was given ample time to get my questions answered. It lasted exactly 30 mins as scheduled.

It was a great experience. Just relax. Don't panic! All the best! :)

Hey, for people who have gotten dinged/admited, does Olin actually send out an email or phone call? or do I have to check my status to know?

For interview invitation, I got an email.

I got a phone call from Olin to let me know that I was admitted. They said they would send a detailed email later with additional documents.

Were you more creative, use storytelling? Or just straightforward.

Thanks for your help.
