Almost 60 days and no turn around. So I dropped them a mail asking if everything was fine with my application. And I got the usual standard reply that its under review.
At the same time, as per forum data- only a couple of applicants below 700 actually got an invite and was admitted. This is mind boggling for school like Carroll, which has average Gmat at 660.



I highly doubt they there would be any more interviews. The decision should be out in two weeks.

Hello all.. had my interview today at BC with a 2nd year student (Skype Interview). Some of the questions that I can remember :

1) Walk me through your resume.
2) Follow-up questions on my current role.
3) What factors made you stand out at your first job ?
4) Having worked in corporate environment for so many years, what made you choose your current role in family business?
5) What differences have you faced when managing teams in your current role vis a vis your banking exp? What feedback have you received?
6) ST & LT Goals?
7) Why MBA and Why BC?
8) How will you contribute to the philanthropic culture at BC?

Then I asked my questions. There were couple of other questions as well which I can't remember. Overall but a very good experience. Hoping for some good news now in 2-3 weeks :P

Hey Ohio!

I didn't hear back about an interview for a while, and wound up getting so anxious that I applied to another school as back up. When I finally got my interview, it was after I had already talked to a bunch of people and they had ALL interviewed before me. They hadn't submitted earlier, and weren't alphabetically first or anything. But, I wound up accepted with a great scholarship. Third round is tricky, so I don't want to give you any kind of false hope, but I was totally freaking out over not having heard and it worked out totally fine. Try to keep your cool. If you have a job you don't hate, you can always wait a year and reapply. But, you have no reason to give up now.

Has anyone had news for round 3?

I was told decisions should be out 2-3 weeks after interview, and by researching previous posts from other years, decisions tend to roll out on the first week of April, some on the second
