So folks who applied to UCLA, I know several of us got the email saying our transcripts were still missing and it turned out to be an error for Consortium applicants. If you login now, do you have all green checks? I still have a red x, even though when I called back in Feb, they said I was good to go and that they'd fix it on their end.

Same here, I was told that we would only need to send 1 back in Feb.
We're you asked to submit additional transcripts?

Only when I was invited to interview when they asked for the official copy instead of the Consortium-supplied copy. Nothing since then.

Wondering what they're doing on their end then since it doesn't seem like Consortium applicants don't even know if they've been dinged.

I am currently torn and have a tough time deciding between three MBA programs (no Consortium fellowship but membership) in which I have been admitted into:

- Emory (with $$) via The Consortium
- UNC Kenan-Flagler via The Consortium
- IESE

Background: I currently work in corporate and investment banking front-office position in NYC. Been in the same team for 3+ years. Also have half a year experience as a FIG Credit Analyst and 1 year of consulting experience. Native Spanish speaker. US Citizen.

Goal: I am looking to transition into a corporate strategy / business development role within a large corporation or a startup. Flexible in terms of geography. Backup would be to do management consulting or rejoin finance.

Which of the three MBA program I am deciding between has the best reputation/prestige? And how comparable is a top 5 European Business School to a Top 20 US Business School? How would it be ranking-wise be if European and US programs were ranked together? Ya'll advice would be much appreciated!

I don't have an answer to your question but are you planning to attend admit weekends? Those events may give you some face time with current students, career services, etc. that can give you some insight. Good luck!

Major congrats! Glad to know that they're coming.
Last I called them they said mid-late March. Which is next week. Haha.

Anyone get a chance to speak to admissions on the timeline?

Major screw up of all time. Get an letter in the mail advising me that I was accepted to Tuck with fellowship. I hadn't heard back from Tuck yet and thought it was odd. Contacted the Consortium and they said that it's not unusual given some schools let the Consortium tell applicants before the school does. I decided to call Tuck directly. The ad-com seemed confused and had me on hold for 8 mins to look into it. She finally came back and advised me to send an email to the general Tuck Admissions email clarifying what happened and that she would look into it and email me back. Supposedly they have multiple resources to check and it would take awhile and she didn't want to keep me on hold. Less than 30 mins later, I get a call from the Consortium telling me they made a mistake. I guess when they were checking their information with who got accepted/offered fellowship they didn't double check first names/last names/SSN's etc. She ultimately apologized saying it was an internal problem and not Tuck's then told me to disregard the letter. How does an organization screw up this bad with something this important after there is constant communication between the schools and the consortium leading up to the draft and after? My mind is blown on how this happened. I've heard it happening on the undergraduate level every 3-4 years, but with MBA's and scholarship money at stake? Unbelievable.

P.s. - I'm still waiting for that sympathetic and apologetic email from Tuck regarding the situation, but I won't hold my breathe. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back or have already received admittance.


A Very similar situation happened to me. Smh. Sorry that this happened to you too!

Just received UNC Kenan Flagler's letter and super cool welcome video in the mail (taking technology to the next level)! I'm impressed with this little gadget.

First, thanks for the heads up! As I was used to getting a FedEx tracking email, I was not expecting anything from KF...

Yes, I too was impressed by this little gadget. My inquisitive nature took over. The item was drop-shipped from Tukwila, WA (a little distance away from Chapel Hill). The name of the company listed was "UviaUs". A quick Google search led me to their website, where I learned more about the company that makes the tech (uviaus[dot]com/portfolio/university-of-north-carolina/).

The website lists the pricing for the base model at $50. Without knowing the upcharge for the custom model, or the discount for bulk purchases, assuming a price around $50 each for the approximately 800 admitted students, $40k is a nice little chuck of change for a welcome letter.

Still pretty cool though. According to the above website, there are just a handful of programs using this technology. I'd be interested to see if this catches on?

I have not, but I think it's because they are waiting on my ding (or possible acceptance?) from McCombs. The Consortium said that we would not hear until all schools have reported.

Not sure why you haven't heard though? Looks like all of your schools have gotten back to you... I'd reach out to them if I were you?

Best of luck!

BTW: Are you headed to Duke or UCLA???
