Hello Everyone,

I have my interview scheduled for the 20th of April. I will really appreciate it if someone can provide tips on how to ace the interview with Tepper. What do I expect? and all!! And for those who have gone through with their interviews, what was your experience like?

Thanks.

Pretty conversational!
Regular questions like your pos-MBA goals and etc.
However, I got 2 "different" questions that I really liked. One was about a time when I made some mistake and what I learned with that and the other was a project that I did not have any information about it and what I did.

If you have any questions, let me know!

Make it fun and interesting.
I've put my experience in late January post here on the forum, and so have many others, try to scroll through and get a good idea of it.
Prepare for behavioral questions and know your resume inside-out.
If you know your interviewer, search her/him and try to relate.

Importantly, this is last round, so may would just want to hang onto whatever they get. So, don't show that desperation, even if that is your reason to apply this late. And be ready to answer convincingly, why you applied this late in the game. Show your commitment to the program and why Tepper, why now.

Two questions:

1. Does anyone know when the basecamp or the pre-term math class begin?

2. What is the deposit required upon acceptance?

1. Pre term math courses happen in batches. They have already begun. Basecamp starts around 2nd week of August.

2. Initial $2000 deposit followed by a 2nd $1000 deposit.

Purvil.

I am also admitted with requirement for the Math Pre Course.
You mentioned that it has begun, but I never got any notification regarding this. Do the admission committee contact the candidate or do we have to initiate it?

I actually don't have that requirement so not sure how it is handled. I hear that the info is relayed along with your acceptance letter. If you want more info, post in the admitted students facebook group and/or join the Whatsapp and Slack groups we created for admitted students (links to both are posted in the facebook group).

Yes, I have the same info.
My portal changed a little bit from how it was at the beginning of the day but still no answer.
Let's wait until the end of the day.

Portal will update before you will get the email. And if you check the portal before the email, the email won't show up. In that case, ask for the facebook group link.
But yeah, not before noon!! (A little +/- is expected).

Mind games, I tell you.

I spent most of the evening glued to my inbox and refreshing the portal waiting for an update, not sure whether to be glad or not that I hadn't heard anything by noon PA time. Opened Chrome on my phone again to check the cricket scores at a few minutes past 12, and the portal page (which had at some point auto-refreshed) was flashing "An update to your application was last posted May 10, 2017". Quelle surprise!

Clicked the View Update button with my heart thumping, to find that I am...

...

wait for it...

:peek

... still waitlisted!

And now I know why I didn't get an email :(

Accepted! Without scholarship.

Doubt: the Full cost (Tuition + Living expenses) is 168,000 for the 2 years?

My estimate put is more like 180k+ over the two years.
Include books, travel (out of country and for networking) and add social - which too is a part of networking!!

Sure, one will earn some during internship and all, but it is more like 180 than 170.
