Hola people,

A big shout out to all the applicants for the SMU Cox FT MBA applicants of Class of 2018. I am a current first year student at Cox School of Business. Our session starts August 24, 2015. I am also the threadmaster of this awesome thread.

Do post in your queries here or PM me, I along with my classmates would be more than happy to help you. Remember, I was at that same position last year as you guys are now.

Nationality - Indian
GMAT - 710
TOEFL - 111 (waived - conditions applied)
Work Ex - 5 year at L&T Limited (Indian engineering giant); Project Management and Engineering
Education - B.E. (Electrical Engineering)

I applied to SMU in R1 last year, and it has been an amazing journey so far, I am psyched to join my classmates for one hell of a ride.

All the best to all the applicants, do let me know if I can help you in any way possible.

Best

Just a quick tip for this year's applicants, try to scan through the last years' threads, a lot of doubts can be solved from those. Also you can contact last year's admitted applicants for you doubts through GC.

All the best. Keep calm and ace the apps.

Submitted my app. Really excited and at the same time nervous.Hoping it goes all well.
Typically how long does it take to get a decision(interview invite).
Was surprised to see, no recommendations, and references only.Has it been always this way at Cox, or is it something that was started this year.Wonder how the admissions committee, will evaluate candidates without any recommendations at all.Hope all the parts of my app are strong enough for an admit with some funding as well.

Usually it takes one week to ten days to get a call for interview, it took me 15 days. The references thing was the same last year too.

Re: Calling all Cox(SMU) Applicants: (2016 Intake) Class of 2018!! [#permalink]
Submitted my app on 07th Oct. I see applicants who submitted app later getting interview invite.Almost 3 weeks after the submission I have not heard anything from Cox.

Portal status just says submitted. Can't figure out whether the application has been reviewed.

What shall I assume - Dinged?

Does anybody know on getting dinged whether Cox notifies the applicant?
