Hi All,
I am an IT engineer with 3 years exp. Have a little bit of diverse experience in leadership as currently I am leading the cultural group of my company in the location for Associate Engagement activities. Aside from this, I have over 3+ part time experience during college in multi-level marketing.
My profile summary is as follows:
Class X - 93.8%
Class XII - 84.8%
CGPA - 6.85/10
GMAT - 710

Considering my poor GPA, can anyone pls comment on my chances at Tepper?

kunaljubce you've probably heard this a million times over at this point, but it's all up to your holistic app. A large part is dependent on the strength of your essays and your interview. It's going to be person by person. You are, indeed, in a difficult spot but it's not impossible. My friend is only one data point, but he had a higher GMAT (750) and lower GPA (mid-2 out of 4.0) and was just accepted. Someone else on this forum also had similar stats (high GMAT, low GPA) and got an interview and didn't get in...so again, it's all up to the individual.

At this point, considering you can't really improve other aspects of your profile, if you could potentially get your GMAT up higher, that would for sure help.

Good Luck!

It lasted about 30 minutes. Standard behavioral questions (e.g. a time when I had to convince my team to do something they would rather not do).

She didn't ask to walk her through my resume, though.

Now I'm just waiting and hoping for the best.

Any part-timers applying in Round 1 (R2 for full time)?

Also it looks like most people received invites for the interview. I haven't received my interview invite yet, and I'm worried now :cry:


Hi Koraa,

I was accepted to Tepper's part-time program in Round 1 and have applied to their full-time program in Round 2. If you were interviewed in Round 1, you won't be invited to the interview again. They will just use the materials from previous round to make their decision. At least that's true for me.

Thanks

Hello everyone. I had applied in R2. I read that some of you received confirmation for completion of application material back on 17th Jan. It worries me that I haven't received any such email till date. Also, my application status page is still displaying that the adcoms have not yet begun processing my application. Is this normal or should I contact Tepper regarding this? Please advice. Thanks

I am a female indian with 6+ work ex in banking and IT sector. My interview was very conversational and I was asked the standard questions such as why MBA, why now , why Tepper,some behavioural questions related to conflict management and culture exposure etc.
It lasted for around 29 mins... now the wait begins!

I have also the same. I think it is a normal process. They change the status of the App only when a candidate is invited for interview or when a candidate is rejected.

So, I believe we need to wait.

They might be busy with the interview process for first wave I guess and wouldnt have got the time to review all the applications but if it really bothers you then dont hesitate to contact the adcom team. My experience with the adcom team has been wonderful,they are really accessible and would surely help you on your query.
