Rejected again after interview. Reapplied this time earlier round was interviewed again and rejected again. That too with fantastic interviews both times. Why bother calling to interview if you have to reject applicants based on scores and gpas only.

That’s not true I applied with GRE scores only and got in. I also got into A&M with money as well I think it all just depends on the candidates individually

hopefullyim2021 no disrespect to you but for international students the requirement is much tougher just see previous threads for COX. I too applied to Mays but was waitlisted after interview and eventually denied after 9 months last year. So the averages mentioned on the website are for domestic student and international students combined. Basically universities balance high and low GMATs of students from various regions to get an overall GMAT average.

My apologies sorry to hear that I applied to programs outside of the US as well and I definitely get it for me to get into university of St. Gallen I was not a good candidate and the same for IMD...I get it sorry to hear about that! I really do hope you find a program. Are you wanting to be in Dallas or just in Texas?

No I have scholarship offers from Boston College Carroll this year and had one for last year from Boston University and Babson. But for personal reasons I could not attend last year. Have applied to bu again this year this time for dual degree program. So lets see the outcome. I too had offers from RSM and WHU from Europe but the language barrier was a killer in finding jobs in that market. Hence my preference for English speaking regions such as USA or UK.

P.S I seriously got annoyed with Cox because they did the same thing to me last year. This year I changed whole essay including goals took several courses to strengthen profile. But the outcome remains the same despite two stellar interviews with same admissions person both time. Plus they just mention about feedback but when I contacted them in September they gave no productive response.

Hey man, sorry to hear about your results. I think you have something better in your destiny.

Would you mind sharing your interview experience? What kind of questions shall I expect, the duration of the interview, and who took it for you?
I can really use your help.
Thank you man.

Admitted to the 1-year fast track, but now I'm kind of wishing I had done the 2-year for the internship.

I also had a lowish GPA (2.95) and applied only with GRE. Army vet though.

Hello,

Need an advice.
I got accepted to Georgia Terry College of Business with 100% tuition waiver. I wrote an email to SMU to provide an earlier decision so that I can make an informed decision.
SMU reverted with a request to provide the Acceptance letter and Merit Aid Letter to review the same and provide their decision. Kindly advise whether it's alright to send the letters to SMU?

Really all these schools are asking you to show the Terry admit?

This is strange. I don't think it's correct for the schools to ask candidates to show the admit letters of other schools. You either convey the decision as per applicant's request or simply say no. What's the point in asking the proof?

I am very confused.
I do not want to jeopardise my admit in Terry because of any wrong action or mistake.

I also have the same concern. Why don't you seek opinion of admission experts? You can share your situation with few of them here... https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/
