I have a very modest GMAT score(660 q47 v35) but cannot retake owing to my tight work schedule.

I run my family business of manufacturing engineering goods in India, and I am inclined to complete an MBA from broad in operations/supply chain.

Good luck to all! Essay questions are out and hope everyone has started working on them. Application will be available on August 1st, so it's good time to do some brainstorming. Here is a question for everyone. Tell us a bit about your background and why you chose Michigan state for MBA?

Hey early round!
Anyone else get an email from Paul North about scheduling "1-on-1" appointments, but where it says to click the link to pick your 30 minute time slot, there is no link? I emailed him back about it cause I'm not sure if that's "the interview" or what, but no answer yet. Just wondering if anyone else got that and if it worked...

Even I received such an email. It was an error apparently, as clarified in a latter email. They'll send the Interview link later.

Is anyone facing a technical issue submitting the application??

I had been trying to submit my early applications for many days ... but the data in the portal gets automatically erased on reaching the review page.

Hi,
Did anyone receive the "Invitation for Advising Session" email with content as below:

"Dear XXX,

Thank you for your interest in the Full-Time MBA Program. We would like to invite you to a 1-on-1 advising session to discuss your career and academic goals. These 15- 30 minute sessions allow you to talk directly with an Admissions Officer to help answer your questions.

When reserving your timeslot, please note under “Additional Information” if you would like to have your advising session over the phone, in-person, or via Skype, so we can contact you with additional information if necessary.

Is this to be considered as the evaluative interview?

Also wish to know if transcripts also need to be couriered to them along with the applications or could be sent later?

I got an email like that on Monday but my application status had not changed. I got a formal interview invitation today via email and my application sub-status had also changed to "Selected for Evaluative Interview," so I think the 1-on-1 things are informal chats. Also it says for FT MBA apps, you do not need to have official transcripts/degrees sent directly to Broad until you are admitted. On the application tracker page, even if you uploaded your transcripts it will still show as "Awaiting" until they have processed your application.

@Startfiish : thanks for the info...

It still shows awaiting for Transcripts and GMAT Score for me... Moreover, I am confused , coz I have my application submitted and the discussion interview doesnt make sense now

I think maybe they send the informal chat session email when they start processing an application, then once they're done reading it they change the status and it will show all of the Transcripts and GMAT as received. I had mostly those orange dots until this morning, so I think they change to green after they've read the application. I submitted on the 27th.

Official transcripts will be required only if you get an admit. For now the scanned copies will suffice.
