Buncha trolls on clearadmit. They deleted all of the posts from before about 2 PM today going back through yesterday. There are a few more invites reported on clearadmit now, but who knows what to believe?

Looks like all invites from today were for USA based consulting or related industries. I believe they invite based on groups. Obviously I do not know the exact parameters in which they segregate apps but. If you are not interested in Consulting and are not from the USA, I would not be concerned at all.

Does this mean people 'from' consulting or people aiming to go into consulting post-MBA? It means a world of difference!

Round 1 folks had the exact same discussion pattern, including the infuriating marketing email. Expect another marketing email in the next two days.

From what I could understand reading the posts from October, R1 had a similar invite distribution, with a small batch on the first day followed by three days of invites (two batches per day). I don't think invites are sent out by concentration. Lots of people got invites on the last day (Friday for R2), but dings also went out on the last day.

If R2 applicant pool is similar to R1 on gmatclub, then we should see around 30-40 invites. I see only two reported so far.

I am only speculating based on what people are reporting on Clear admit, it looks like post career. Also I feel like data ties strongly to US applicants, although lots of international folk may be asleep!

Per above, I could be wrong but either way there is still plenty of hope so breath easy!

I also reviewed the R1 data and thought they concluded on concentrations. My bad if not. Either way I am Not for profit which is more niche so I will be much more concerned if I start seeing a bunch of those go out.

For what it's worth, I know a girl who got an invite this afternoon and she works in finance and want some to go into finance. Hopefully more are sent out over the next few days. Congratulations to everybody who got one so far.

Hi guys

Does anyone know what are the dates for on-campus interview? I'm visiting the US between 17 and 23 Jan, and might just do an on-campus interview when I'm there - ofcourse if I'm invited.

How do you know that? I haven't seen any invites out yet.


I guessed by looking to round 1 timing. But as of now, it appears I was wrong.


It's hard to guess when invites will go out until they actually do. It's hard but you simply have to wait..and wait some more..

Peeps - a quick question - I have not yet sent my official score to the school, however, I had attached my unofficial score in the application portal. Does that mean I would not be considered for round 2 because the school has not received my official score?
Please help. Thanks

I believe they'd reach out to you if you haven't submitted an official score report.

Q
How will I know when you receive my official GMAT or GRE scores?

A
You can check the status in the online application system. However, it may take a significant amount time for your application to be updated with the verified scores. If we are missing your scores prior to admission, the processing team will contact you directly.

Official GMAT scores are only required once admitted. For now, scores are only self reported.

I had the same question. So I called Booth. They said, they don't need the official scores for consideration. They will need them for verification later on, if you are admitted.
So, you will be considered for round 2.
