Anyone else from India got their decision?


I'm waiting for their email, no email for acceptance or rejection received yet. I had my last interview on 6 Feb and everyone who had interviews till 6th Feb have got some confirmations.

Is anyone who had last interview on or before 6 Feb waiting for reply from college?

I had mine on 7th, and I'm waiting for a decision. I know someone who had his Adcom interview on 8th and has already got an admit email yesterday.

Same boat. BTW did you guys send physical copies of your degree transcripts to the admissions office?

Nope I didn't. I was planning to send only once I get admit confirmation as someone in this discussion confirmed with adcom that we can send transcripts after our interviews once we receive confirmation. And I don't think that is a big thing for not sending acceptance emails for college also as everyone has already sent scanned transcripts.

I didn't. I think the unofficial scanned copies are sufficient for evaluation and the official copies are asked for once the admit decision has been made.

Finally! I received the admission email and phone call !! Yaaahooooo
It is a small step for the man, but a step of giant for humanity....or the reverse... ;)

Some questions for the next steps :

- I've seen that some of you guys have a scholarship: if it's not too intrusive, could you please share the amount or the percentage ? Just to have an idea of what kind of scholarship are possible.

- Is it possible to send MYSELF the hard copies of my transcripts and diplomas ?
Or is it mandatory to ask my university to send them ?

- Have you already done the "Diploma Supplement" process ?
If yes, could you please describe the process ? Is it free ? Have I to supply documents ? How much time ?

- Some of you have already started the visa procedure ?

- Finally, some of you are planning to come with your wife/husband ?


Thanks for for answers !

Alex

Hey Alex! Congratulations! Would you let us know which country are you from? Can't see it through my mobile app. Just to understand the order in which the results are rolling out.
Thanks!

Some questions for the next steps :

- I've seen that some of you guys have a scholarship: if it's not too intrusive, could you please share the amount or the percentage ? Just to have an idea of what kind of scholarship are possible. I am yet to receive info regarding scholarship. As per previous year's posts, scholarship ranges between 10-50% of tuition fee.

- Is it possible to send MYSELF the hard copies of my transcripts and diplomas ?
Or is it mandatory to ask my university to send them ?
I believe it is mandatory to request the university to send the transcripts directly to HKUST.

- Have you already done the "Diploma Supplement" process ?
If yes, could you please describe the process ? Is it free ? Have I to supply documents ? How much time ?
I have absolutely no idea about this. Can you explain?

- Some of you have already started the visa procedure ?
I am waiting for the formal admissions offer to start the procedure. I believe HKUST will facilitate us in applying for visa. In any case we will need a local sponsor, which might be arranged by HKUST.

- Finally, some of you are planning to come with your wife/husband ?
Yet to be decided

Thanks for for answers !

Alex

Thanks !

For your info :

"For candidates who complete their degree in Europe, you may need to provide the diploma supplement issued by your university.
Kindly refer to http://ec.europa.eu/education/tools/dip ... ent_en.htm for the information of this document".

Hi all,

I have been placed on the waitlist. Any idea what's the convertion ratio from waitlist to acceptance ? Also, what should be the next steps from my side to make sure the conversion is positive.

Thanks !

Hi Prashant,

I have been waitlisted too. To improve your candidature, I believe you can take the GMAT again to do better on the verbal section. I am doing the same for the quant section.

Hi Prashant,

I have been wait-listed too, but I have a more balanced GMAT at 710 Q48V40. I think there are more factors than just academics - interview performance, difference between the perception of your candidature per written application vs. that in interview etc. Also, I suspect number of Indian candidates that have been already accepted etc. and those who do and do not finally put the deposit may have a hand in deciding our outcome.

Overall, I had a very pleasant interaction (coffee chat, interviews) experience and I would certainly be waiting to move to the acceptance queue.

Thanks.
