Hey everyone,

This is Sarang here. I am a full time MBA candidate (class of 2017) at the Fisher College of Business. I am also a Student Ambassador for the MBA and the WPMBA program. Please feel free to post any questions you have about the program, application process, student life etc. More than happy to answer them.

All the best with your applications!

Hey,

You should have got a response from the admission team by now. I would probably send them a mail or a call to clarify this.

Hi Sarang,
Does FCOB need my official transcripts to be mailed or just the scanned copies for review purpose?
I had requested ETS tos end my TOEFL score to FCOB and they confirmed the same on 19th June. But FCOB is not in receipt of my TOEFL scores. Will that delay my admission review? I have sent the unoffocial scores.

Hey,

Thanks for your question. You can upload an unofficial copy of your transcript with your application. The unofficial transcript must be a scanned copy of the official transcript (sent directly from the school). You should also upload the grading scale (if you have one attached to your transcript). We will use the unofficial transcript for review purposes only. If you are offered admission, you will need to submit an official transcript.

Regarding your TOEFL score, I would probably reach out to ETS to verify the same again. If I remember correctly, it took ETS about ten days to send my score last year. Since the first round deadline is still a month away, I wouldn't worry about a delay in admission review. Please send a mail to [gpo_processing@fisher.osu.edu] informing them about the delay.

If you have any other queries, please feel free to reach out to me at [mba@fisher.osu.edu]

Thanks and Regards,
Sarang

I can give you my perspective on this. My classes started about 3 weeks back and we have already had multiple career fairs, company information sessions, consulting workshops (conducted by alums), mock interview sessions, personal career counselling etc. The Fisher career management team has extensive experience working with International students, so I feel I am in good hands.

As you asked for SCM, you might be knowing that Fisher is one of the best schools in the US for Supply Chain Management. Also, Columbus is a major hub for the Supply Chain and Logistics industry. If you would like to know more, I could connect you with a few of the second year Indian students who have just completed their internships within Supply Chain Management function. You could send me a mail (referencing this conversation) at [mba@fisher.osu.edu] and I would be happy to help you!

Just called the admissions office about fall preview weekend (oct 23 and 24) invites. They still have no clue when theyre going to release the list of candidates. Looks like they dont care about students who have to fly in. Less than two weeks and absolutely ridiculous. People who can drive in probably dont care, but oh well.. certainly bad PR.

Hi everyone,

I am applying to Fisher in Round 2.
Could you tell me if I can use my recommender's personal email id?
One of my recommenders is not comfortable using his official email for this purpose.

Thanks,

I do not see any problem there using personal email id. I used it in my application.
But if you still want to be sure, you can mail and ask them.

We’re so sorry to hear that you didn’t receive a response more quickly. This must have been an isolated incident, as we tried to get back to candidates within about a week or two of their request. Our apologies for the delayed response.

Hi Aravinth,

Yes. You can use your recommender's personal email id for the LOR.
