I got admitted on 2/15 as well. The turnaround time for the decision and deposit amount are pretty aggressive...

Nope not yet.

Should we drop a mail to the adcom to check when the results will be out?

I am a local applicant in Hong Kong and I applied the full-time MBA program in the first round.
The reason why I choose HKUST is that while it provides adequate international experience, I can minimize my expense by staying in Hong Kong (Why don't I make use of it if we have a sound education system in Hong Kong?).

I got a conditional offer from the school and they ask me to retake the GMAT exam and they told me the target score is 700 points in February. I take the GMAT exam again and I got 700. Then in last week they phoned me and persuade me to switch my appication to the part-time program. I was like, "Seriously? You told me in the end of March?"

Now I am kind of fighting for my full-time degree in HKUST on one hand and rushing to apply for other programs in US and UK on the other. :(

Hi,
I am new to this thread and really wanted to understand certain points - I choose to opt for HKUST MBA 2018-2019 (12 months)
After giving several attempts at GMAT, with my heart bleeding as hell I could secure only 620 (Q - 49, V - 25, IR -6).

If some one can please review and let me know if I stand a chance for HKUST (I do not wish to give GMAT further as my levels have saturated after many attempts)

2. Launched a Malaysian retail brand in India in 2014 with 2 outlets in the South
3. Currently, handling a pan India business growth for one of the products of a leading firms in India
4. Launched an e-commerce company attracting a seed funding and aiming to expand to South East Asia
5. Got published in 1 book which is still selling in Amazon, Flipkart and few retail stores in India, U.S. and India., the 2nd book will be published in Aug(most likely)

Extra Curricular - Participation in Athletics & Football (District Level), Playing Guitar, Mouth Organ & Flute, Sketching

I strongly suggest you apply to HKUST in the first round and focus on explaining how you can bring diversity to the class. TBH the GMAT score can be a deterrent.
