I applied for the 'Executive' program, so I'm not a good example for most of you to compare with, but I have 22 years of relevant work experience...6 at my current company, 17 in my current field.

680 is an excellent GMAT score, and with your GPA should make admission a breeze.

Yes, indeed.

I'm so slammed with work, school (full course load this semester), and consulting (it's primary season and I'm working to one degree or another on two congressional and a handful of legislative campaigns), that the uncertainty was becoming a tangible burden. I therefore took the presumptuous step of of writing to the admissions department and pressing them for a decision sooner rather than later. They arranged a second Skype interview and that interview I think sealed the deal.

We spent most of the second interview discussing the level of support I could expect to receive from my employer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. I made it clear that I had the full support of my Director and that HPE understood the profit they could expect from my work at BYU. With that, they assured me a decision within 48 hours...which I received yesterday.

Happy Days!

I don't recommend this strategy to anyone else, as my circumstances are unique. That said, I'm in and now preparations begin for the fall.

Yes. I have an experience of almost 4 years. Considering the pool type I believe 680 is a competitive score but again selection committee reviews many other things besides GMAT Score. Wish you all the best for your exam :thumbup:

BYU IS 98% Mormon because it is a religious institution owned and operated by the LDS Church. Mormons flock to the university from all over the globe because it's a Mormon owned and operated school named after a "Prophet", while non-Mormons who don't live in the immediate vicinity of the school are largely indifferent. Undergraduates are forced to take religion classes (from the Mormon perspective) and all students agree to live by an honor code based on Mormon scripture. You'll be living in a community that is overwhelmingly white Mormons, most of whom will assume you're a member of the church because you chose to go to BYU. NON Mormon students tend to drive an hour north and attend the University of Utah, which is just as prestigious, in many respects more highly regarded, arguably easier to get into, doesn't penalize you financially for not being a member of the Church, has no "honor code", and where all your classes are directly related to your degree, not the predominant faith.

All that said, BYU bends over backwards to achieve cultural diversity. Being from Asia gives you an edge in admissions, even though they won't admit that publicly. If you don't get admitted it will be in spite of your cultural diversity, not because of it.

I applied to BYU because it's cheap, well ranked, it has a strong alumni network, my wife is Mormon and so attending BYU makes my in laws happy and proud, and (perhaps most importantly) it's the closest school to my house. The University of Utah campus is another 20 minutes away and costs $15,000 more to attend, so not the best option. That all said, I have to admit I'm curious why so many of you folks from outside the Salt Kake City / Provo area are interested in attending. It sounds like many of you aren't LDS and it's not exactly a convenient school to get to. If you don't mind me asking, what's the attraction? :-D

I got to know about BYU from Forbes rating.I kinda like the school because of Avg GMAT score is 670, reasonable fees, good campus, Avg package is also good, I like that school offers so many co-curricular activities(acapella group...:p) and it is disciplined like no alcohol n stuff.At that time, I did not know about LDS community.So,i got worried because i did not want to be picked upon at a b school.

Hi Anmol,

To give you an idea I had all my application material submitted by February 15th and BYU contacted me about an interview on March 3rd so it took about 2.5 weeks for me to hear back form them.

Received an email on 7th March, stating that "BYU received a number of qualified international applicants this time and that they will try to come up with admissions decision in a few weeks". That's it, no exact date when they will come back. I was interviewed on 23rd Feb.
