Hi akshay4110,

I am reapplying to Fisher this year. Could you please let me know whether the process is different for a reapplicant?
Also, I wish to know how generous is Fisher with scholarships? Especially with Indian candidates and female candidates.

Hey ss20tali,

Thanks for posting your query on the thread. I believe that there is now change in the application process from the last year. You will have to submit all the essays along with the reapplicant essay. I will be meeting the admissions office tomorrow and will confirm this understanding of mine.

As far as the scholarships are concerned, Fisher gives a lot of focus on your complete profile. Focus on all values you bring to the fisher community and how can you contribute in classes and as a member of various student organizations. Fisher is generally generous with people who are able to show their right fit to the community here.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to PM me if you have any further queries regarding admissions or want to learn anything about the college and the MBA program.

Best Regards

Hi akshay4110 How does Make your own major work? Can I select any course that suits my needs or is it restrictive in some sense?
I am very much interested in 'Consulting in FInancial Services' and would want to know more about this major. Can you please shed some light?
TIA.
Regards.

Interviewed this past Friday with Fisher as part of their Fall Preview Day event. In lieu of posting an in-depth after action review, I will just say that the interview covered all of the basic questions we all expect ADCOMs to ask us for in an MBA interview. The tone was very conversational and the personnel conducting the interviews were extremely professional, easy going and genuinely pleasant. Following the admissions interview, we interviewed with a member of the career services in order to dive a little deeper into our career aspirations. Again, very conversational and it allowed me to lay out all of my goals, plans, backup plans and any doubts I have going forward. This interview honestly felt more like a counseling where it was a two-way conversation and not a grilling that sought to shoot down my hopes and dreams.

Overall, if I was going to offer any type of advice (haven't gotten a decision yet so take it with a grain of salt), I'd say be yourself. Legitimately be yourself. Everyone I interacted with at Fisher, from the administrative assistant to the first and second year students and the interviewer were humble and down to Earth. To me, that kinda leads me to believe that Fisher does want this interview to accurately portray who you are as a person and who you will be as an MBA candidate, not just trying to see if you memorized some vanilla interview questions with a canned speech.

Will have my decision tomorrow so I will update then. If anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I'd love to share my experience and answer any questions from my relatively brief exposure to Fisher thus far.

Got the nod from Fisher today. Have to wait a few more weeks to hear if they're gonna offer any type of financial assistance but off to a good start so far. Hope everyone else is moving along in the application process!
