Submitted application on January 3rd, received invite to interview evening of January 5th. By the evening of January 6th, most of the time slots available in January were filled up so I am now doing a Skype interview on the 10th. Does anybody have any insight into the interview questions they ask? I have heard it is behavioral and that you should know your reason for going to bschool and your backup plan, like in the essay. Wondering if anyone had any additional info.

Mine has not changed and I was invited for an interview.



The application status does not change until decision day. Good Luck!


Just wanted to check, post-submission, one first receives a application submission confirmation email and then an application complete email, am I correct?

Of those accepted in R1, did you receive Financial Aid/Grants/Scholarships?

Any advice on planning to finance. I have about 10% of tuition in savings and am freaking out about the money part. I know it will be ok, I just feel very uncomfortable with debt.

Yes. Both GRE (I applied with Gre scores) and 'All submitted application verified by admissions officer' has a red cross beside it.

Strange though.. Makes me wonder how they called for interview if my application has not yet been verified by admissions officer and sent to admissions commitee.

Probably system is not updated?

FYI
I had sent everything before deadline. Official Scores sent maybe ard 27th Dec..

Cheers
All the best

Please see below from Tepper application page:

Note Regarding "Awaiting" Test Scores: Your Official Test Scores will always show as "Awaiting" after submitting an application. In the coming days and weeks, the admissions team will match official scores to your application in the order that the applications are submitted. Once the scores have been added to your record the checklist status will change to "Received". We appreciate your patience. As long as you have sent official scores to our test code, then there is no action needed from you at this time.

I've scheduled my interview on Jan 18th. Do they ask separate questions to each applicant or do they have a standard format for questions?
Thanks.

They ask behavioral questions; Are from a similar pool, but cannot be the same for each.
If you have never had Behavioral interviews earlier, you need time and multiple mock-sessions to practice.

Feel free to connect with us for Mock-Interview Sessions.
