Hi All,

I've been checking this site for any updates/insight into applying to Krannert, and just realized I never posted anything about *my* experience to help those who are also applying :)

Me:

WE: 6 years in Chicago and NYC (working in start-ups, merchandising and analytics)
UNDERGRAD: 3.122 undergrad at Ohio State/Fisher College of Business, studied Logistics and City & Regional Planning (*note I worked full-time throughout undergrad, self-financing my degree)
GMAT: I was testing between 680-690, but for the Weekend MBA program there's a GMAT waiver if WE/undergrad is good, so I opted not to take it

I applied to the Weekend MBA program January 12 (R2). I received an invite to interview Jan 29th. I interviewed 2/4. The interview went very well. It was very casual, almost too casual IMO. I didn't get asked a lot of questions, it felt more of a sell on Purdue, why Purdue is great and the Weekend MBA program is a good fit for what I need.

Today is 2/16 and still no word. The feeling from the interview was that I got in, since there weren't many questions but rather more of a sell on the program, but it's been 12 days and no word. Thoughts?

I wouldn't start sweating yet. 12 days really is not that long, especially as they are in the middle of other interviews now. I was admitted and it was probably about 3 weeks after my interview that I heard

Awesome thanks. I saw someone else post they found out 5 days after the interview, so that's when I started getting nervous! If you heard within 3 weeks, I'll expect the same. Really appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi,
So I have this question for the people who gave interview previously.
Interview question are general, it appeared that interview was intended to be short 15-20 minute.

It started with the Question why Purdue ?
I felt, I messed up on one of question where they asked about the team work, I went little bit of off-tangent here.
So , I just wanted to know if I messed up my chances , It was my last interview and I had not made to any school yet.

I wanted to have opinion if I should say good bye to my chances of joining the MBA or should keep hope.
Also , They told me to wait for 3-4 weeks , but I noticed on the board people got reply in 1 week time.

So any idea how long purdue take to have a decision.

Hi, I had my interview on 22nd and Got an email saying I have been recommended for Krannert MBA for 2016-18. The mail does not have any details regarding GA or scholarships. Did we have to apply it separately or I will have to ask, if they could give me any?

pankajvashist : One question does not make any difference. You will make it...:). All the best.

ambitiousnerd : Questions were quite general why mba, why purdue, why now. My interview lasted only 17 minutes.

I got a separate email with GA information a few hours after my admissions email. There was a box on the application that said something like "I would like to be considered for financial aid or graduate assistantships" that I checked, but I don't think that was necessary to actually be considered. You should have been automatically considered for any GA money with your application.

pankajvashist Thanks Pankaj. But with the scholarship amount I have, I don't think I would be able to fund.

All the best to you.
