Just had my interview in D.C. today, Oct 29. It went fairly well. Mostly standard questions. He was an admissions council member and he had not seen my application nor my resume when I sat down.

1) Give me a 3 minute overview of your resume starting from undergrad until now
2) Why MBA now?
3) Why BU SMG?
4) ST and LT Goals
5) Describe a time you had to be a team leader and what was your leadership style
6) Describe a time you had to react/adjust to change and what did you learn
7) Describe a time you had to take a risk
8) What is your proudest accomplishment (personal or professional)
9) What do you do in your free time
10) left some time for questions

Cheers

Has anyone heard back yet? I applied for R1 and interviewed a day later, so I'm anxious to get the decision.

The site says by Nov. 21, but I didn't know if anyone received anything prior to the date. Seems like in previous years, they sent letters on random days.

Still contemplating on whether to apply or not.
The school is taking a hit in rankings every year now and seems the employment stats 3 months post MBA is not that great.
The thing in favor is the location. Any suggestions please?

I just got in and submitted my declaration of intent.

As far as rankings, one thing to understand is that BU has refocused it's efforts to strengthen its program around certain areas, two big ones being technology and healthcare management. If you are looking for finance or general management consulting, there are other options like BC that might be better suited. I am in the software industry so their approach fits perfectly for me.

Don't read too much into stats. Non profit careers could be pulling the numbers down. You should take a visit and check it out.

Thanks muumuu

I am looking at IT consulting post my MBA and you mentioned that they are strengthening in that regard.

Any idea about the job scenario in and around Boston as well and the overall student experience at BU?

What do you think about Carroll vs BU?

Just got an email - is this considered official admit? Anyway, I just want to check about the scholarship - does that mean we will need to pay less tuition, or we will get stipends for that year?

Thank you.

Did BU give any information about the scholarship ? There are no comments about the scholarship in my letter. :(
(Just saying formal offer..)

Got through as well with a decent scholarship.

Any indians here? I also got through ISB and I'm confused between the two in terms of job opportunities and experience.

Any inputs would be helpful!
