I have just been invited for an interview with the adcom. I think we'll do it tomorrow.

Does anyone have any good advice about MBA admissions interviews?

Please let us know how the interview went. Also can you please let us know the timelines? When did you apply and if you are LDS or not.


gauravraos,

I asked her if 3 p.m. MST is a good time for the interview. I'm still waiting for her response about that. I'll let you know how the interview was.

I applied on October 1st, at 2 a.m. MST. I thought I could know about their decision by October 15th :lol:

Yes, I am LDS. I applied for BYU for the first time for the class of 2019 (2017 intake). However, I found out that my undergrad degree was not a BS degree and they did not admit me at that time.

I have just been interviewed by Brother Nielson (he is specifically from HR). It was great! He said I should hear about them probably by the end of next week.

He asked me about my background and about my plans after my MBA. He asked me about why BYU MBA and if I applied for other schools.

Well, I'll wait for their decision now. Let me know if you have any questions about how my interview went.

I am an Indian with a GMAT score of 690. I have a decent profile(2 years with Indian Tech giant as a consultant then 1 year at an event management company as an operations consultant. Working there presently). I was hoping to apply to BYU. I don't know if 690 is good enough for a decent scholarship as Indian applicant pool is already really competitive.Can anyone shed some light on how scholarships are provided there?

They have some scholarship options.

Are you a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

If you are considering this school i suggest you to start with IERF evaluation as it takes a lot of time.

For IERF we need to send our undergrad mark sheets and degree right? Not our high school one (10th and 12th for Indians)?
And people who are done with interviews kindly post your experiences please.!!

Yep, you need only to submit your papers about your undergrad degree, nothing from high school.

About the interview, it took about 45 minutes and he spoke about half of the time. He made me feel good about taking to him, it was not like he was looking for reasons not to admit me.

I was interviewed 1.5 week ago but have still not received their decision letter yet. Someone told me it may take from 2 to 4 weeks for me to receive it.

I was interviewed this past Monday by Mike Bond. It felt like a discussion and Professor bond was truly interested about me and my post MBA plans. We talked about my work experience, why I wanted to pursue marketing, and why BYU. It lasted 30 minutes.

Does BYU have an age limit? I know their average student´s age, but for someone past 35 y/o, is there a chance?
Thanks!

I don't believe BYU has an age limit. Their average age is 29. I think that if you have a strong GMAT and a good essay explaining why the MBA makes sense for you right now , you should have a fair shot. There is also the EMBA, the average age for which is 35.

I would call the admissions office, explain to them your situation and your goals and ask their advice for which to apply for.

Best of luck!

Thanks for the quick reply. Im not from the US, so the EMBA wouldn’t be an optikn for me. Explaining my situation in the essay looks like the best option.
Thanks again.

Yes, I agree with Savage91's answer. I would also add that I know a guy who was accepted in his early 40's and it wasn't a problem for him. He used to own his own business before his MBA and now he works as the Commercial Director for a multi-national company.

Awesome, I want to go the other way, move from the corporate world to entrepreneurship. I’ve heard BYU’s entrepreneurship track is a very good one.
Thanks!

Congrats!! What are your gmat scores if you dont mind sharing? I have 650 (Q49 V30), and I dont know if that will be good enough. I honestly don't think that I will do any better if I take the test again.
