Had my interview yesterday with Jillian Melton

It was pretty much a Conversational chat. Questions asked were

Walk me through your resume
Describe your routine job day schedule
What other schools have you applied to
How does your sub ordinates/colleagues describe you
Tell me a situation when you have exceeded your expectations
why did you choose your undergraduate major
Any questions for us
The interview lasted for about 30 mins.

When can we expect the final calls?


Decision for Round 1 will be out by mid december !!

You should not. I had emailed JR McGrath a few days back and he intimated that they are still reviewing the applications. Nothing to worry, for another 10-12 days at least! :)

My suggestion here would be - while you should not loose hope for Cox, start preparing for your round 2 schools and use your experience from round 1 to better prepare yourself. Take professional help if required. All the best.

you just have to give the name of your recommenders, that would suffice for your application to get reviewed.

That is correct. You need to give the details of 2 recommenders, whom they will contact if required. But like for other schools, you don't need them to send the recos for your application to be reviewed. :)

I got a mail today from Cox, that I have been put on the waitlist and that the decision will be given in June 2016.
Firstly, I was not interviewed by Cox, and the waitlist mail is the first mail I have received since submitting my application.
Secondly, isn't June 2016 a little too late for international applicants with respect to visa preparation?

Yes, June 2016 is a bit late. While you can keep waiting, I would suggest to look for another school. That way you can at least feel at ease when you get an admission, even if not from Cox.

I was interviewed by JR McGrath last night and this morning I received a waitlist decision. During interview I was told that decision will come by 15th Dec.
Everything went well during the interview, it was a very conversational experience and hence I was almost sure of getting an admit.

Guys is it possible that something went missing here. I mean they decided on waitlisted candidates who were not interviewed and since mine was scheduled just on the day they rolled out mails, I some how got the waitlist mail too.

I know I am thinking too much through this but it seems tough to reason out the waitlist decision even though I understand the admission process is relative.
Any inputs?
