Hi all,

Just wanted to share the moment of joy...no surprises for guessing though :) :)
I called up HKUST MBA AdCom to find out the status of my application and was thrilled to hear that I have made it through...got speechless and short of words.
With regards to documents, one can submit the hardcopies even after you get a final call.

Thanks all for your kind advise and hope to meet most of you at HKUST MBA.

Regards
Sumit


Congratulations Sumit!! I got an email from them too.

We should try to connect offline. Where are you based out of?

Hi everyone,
My payment page showed me a "Success" without even asking for card details.

I don't know what to do with this. Kindly help.


They sent me an email and I was able to pay. I have not gotten a confirmation email of submission though.

There is actually some problem with their system. My references section shows submitted, however my recommenders have not yet submitted their reports.

I received an interview invite too, around noon IST.

Apart from the GMAT at 710, I will have six years of Consulting (Risk Advisory) experience at the time of starting MBA. My decision to apply was primarily influenced through discussions with a current student at the coffee chat session that the school organized in New Delhi.

Same here, received the email in the afternoon. The first interview slot available was on the 6th of Feb.
Should we now immediately mail our transcripts to the admission office or wait till after the interview?
