I had Tepper asking for an official document showing GPA. My Alma Mater don't issue such, they use letter grades.
I called Tepper and talked to them, it was a wonderful and friendly experience. GPA thing was sorted out, they made a note on my application and it was all good.

Then, things took a bit funny turn. They could see that they tried to send an email, inviting for an interview, MORE THAN A MONTH AGO!!! They could also see that it probably didn't go through / I didn't open it.
But, I never had it!!.
Well, it was all good that they sent it again and I booked a slot, right away.

Anyone, who suspects this may have happened, please contact Tepper. Now, I am not suggesting that you all call them at once and clog the telephone line. But at the least email them and see if anything is amiss.

Wow. First of all, congratulations. I've learnt from your case that I shouldn't lose my hope until I exert myself to do every possible and pertinent approach. Thank you for sharing fascinating progress on ur admissions. I may contact a few of my top listed schools..
Finally, all the best luck to you.

You just sent a least 50 calls over to Tepper based on this super unique situation! LOL Congrats on the interview invite and good luck!

Hahaha... yeah, I know, eh?
But think, if someone missing out on this just for that reason!! I wouldn't want that happening, even at a cost of Tepper getting a flood of calls - and probably they can link it back to me too (if someone says, this happend to a guy..).

Thanks for the wishes and I too wish you the best.

How long is it recommended to wait before we get an interview invite or something?
I submitted my application on Jan, 11th 2018. Haven't heard anything from them yet as of now.
Can we e-mail them asking for further status or something?

If you submitted on January 11th, you're in the R3 pool. Given that the R3 deadline is March 4th, it looks like you have a ways to go before hearing back re: interviews.

Yeah about that thing. I was said that even if I submit my application on Jan 11th, I would be considered for R2 because I faced some technical issues with my GMAT exam and Adcoms were informed about this.

Huh, in which case I have no idea - might be worth reaching out to the school!

As mentioned by others, reach out to the school, but don't bug them too often.
More often than not, the results (acceptances, WL, denials) are surprising - to put it mildly. And in case of Tepper, as they put it while asking for which other schools did you / planning to apply to - 'you know, we are in the business...' Don't put all eggs in one basket.

Interview feedback: On-campus with Adcom, 2/12

Questions:
1. I've read through your resume, could you tell me about your current position with your company?
2. What are you interested in doing next, after your MBA? (read what are your career goals)
3. Tell me about a time you worked in a team setting where you had to compromise for the team to succeed
4. Tell me about a situation where a team member disagreed with you and how you deal with it
5. Tell me about your experience working with a diverse team with different backgrounds from you
6. Describe a time when you had to overcome a challenge at work
7. What accomplishment are you most proud of outside of work
8. Is there anything else you would like to tell me about yourself?
9. Any questions for me?

Overall it was fairly short, about 25 minutes of questions followed by 15 minutes of me asking questions and holding a general back and forth conversation. Tepper interviews are very behavioral, so you really wont have much opportunity to delivery the traditional questions/answers of walk me through your resume, career goals, why MBA/why now, what will you contribute, therefore you need to find strategic ways to fit in your key messaging. Have your stories ready, especially multiple teamwork stories. I spoke with 3 other students who were interviewed the same day and their feedback was similar; it's very conversational and behavioral.

Best of luck to other GMATClub CMU Class of 2020 hopefuls! :thumbup:

So I applied at Tepper during Round 2 on 3rd January. Portal is showing my status as "Complete and Sent to Committee for Review". Yet to receive any call or email from the committee (other than an earlier issue I ran into where I provided supplemental documents).

Should I be concerned and get in touch with them or wait it out till the notification deadline?

if you sent an additional document, your file would at the bottom of the pile. so, i wouldn't be worried, yet.
when did you actually sent that extra info matters.
wait for a week or a bit more and then contact. now, dont ask if you are invited or not, but say you are confirming they got that missing info and they need anything else. even WL students may not be interviewed - has happened to me.
you can refer to my earlier posts in this regards - wait after hitting submit and my experience.

I'd not call it advise, but I'd say just approach them and confirm if they got all documents (incl you sent later), and if they need anything else; while you wait patiently for an interview invite. It wouldn't hurt to show you are concerned, but not desperate, that you haven't received an invite yet. And wait for the answer.

More often than not, you will get a generic answer that we sent out invite till late, blah...
If that is what you get, they are not going to disclose anything further and no point on pestering them. In that case, just patiently wait it out - nothing much you can do, unless you can provide them a substantial update. And at the same time, be ready for any result.

Having said that, don't wait till you get an invite to prepare for an interview. If you get fairly late invite, chances are you won't have much time to ready yourself. And that practice will help for interviews in other schools too.

Hi,

So the final supplemental info that I sent them was correspondence with one of the Admission Staff on 4th Feb - So yeah, I'd imagine it's way down in the pile.

Could very well be. Intend on giving them a call today to check on whether any additional materials are required. Tough to be optimistic but hoping for the best.

Yeah, just 2 weeks since.
Also, this is long weekend there. I'd assume that they should respond to you in about a week (end of this week or so), or the possibility of a ding is a more like a reality. Not to break your spirit man. And, there is still a possibility of being on a WL without interview - I have had that done at UNC, last year. I applied, was WL then interviewed and then visited the school and eventually denied. This year, I applied, in 3 days I was invited for an interview and then admitted.
Don't lose hope and be prepared.

Yeah, for the people who had everything in, chances are getting slim. But for cases like that of rezkazmi - who sent details at a later date, they should hold on to hope for a just little longer.
I am not trying to give false hopes. But hey, it is business schools application season and there are so many random as well as unexpectedly logical reasons for acceptance, WL and denial decisions.
This application process is a business in itself. I'd say, anything other than an acceptance decision, is a failed business and a WL is like business failed, but kind of I was able to cut my losses.
So, chin up guys (and gals), be ready for other options. Be ready for next season. Be ready for better performance.
