Hello guys,

I applied to Wisconsin MBA Program (Product and Brand Management) in Round 4 (April 2), the last round for international applicants. Did anyone here applied in this round? Did anyone get an interview invitation? Still no update from the school besides an e-mail confirming that all of my materials have been received and that my application is being reviewed. However the check box “Official Test Scores Verified” in my online application is not selected.

I'm Brazilian and have been working as a Public Relations analyst and manager in different institutions of the Brazilian federal government for the last 7 years. I think I have a good work experience in communications and journalism, but my Gmat score is low (580)...

It has been 2 weeks with no interview invite and there are just 2 weeks more before the decision date. I guess it is getting over for me :(

Best of luck to everyone.

Milinjc,
I wrote the Admissions Office to ask whether they received my scores and someone wrote me back saying that the toefl score was there and that they would check my Gmat score later in the admissions process. The person was really nice and polite. However, the check box “Official Test Scores Verified” in my online application still not selected.

Tomorrow is the decision date and I didn't receive an interview invitation. What about you?

I'm sad, UW was my dream school. :(

MaryBelBr,
Same here.
There have been no updates. I applied for the March 13 deadline and have not been invited for an interview.
The official test score column is still unchecked.
Let me know if you get any updates.

Oh! The only update I received from UW was an email stating that my application was complete and under review by admission committee. I send a few mails afterwards, unfortunately I didn't hear from them in last 20 days.

Do you think a university would enrol without conducting an interview? I don't wanna sound pessimist but I don't think it would, unless they have a video question interview already in place.

I'm a little bit anxious because UW is just the right kind of MBA program for my work experience and post-MBA plans. My fingers and toes are crossed even tighter than before!

Well the application requirements page states that formal admissions interviews are required for all candidates.
So I don't know what to expect. Waiting anxiously.

Interview of a Wisconsin Student  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 01 May 2015, 10:25
Poonam, CEO and founder of myEssayReview, is publishing interviews of her successful students. This is the latest in the series. Here is a chat with Fatima, first year student at the full time MBA program of the Wisconsin.
Poonam: Can you tell us a little about yourself? Where are you from? Where and what did you study as an undergrad? What do you do now?

Fatima: I am from Senegal; I moved to the USA about 5 years ago. I have a Master degree in HR from the University of Dakar/Senegal ,and I fluently speak French and Spanish. Right now, I am a First year MBA student at the Wisconsin MBA program. I am getting ready to move down to Houston for my summer internship. I am super excited about it!

Poonam: When did you start thinking about MBA? Why now? What are your post MBA career goals and long term goals?

Fatima: I started thinking about an MBA since I moved to the USA. In fact, I graduated with a Master in HR from Dakar/Senegal, and I needed to take my career to the next level by pursuing an MBA program that would give me strong business knowledge paired with a deep understanding of the HR function. My short term goal is to become a Human Capital Consultant. My post MBA career goal is working in strategic human capital management by helping an NGO or not- for -profit organization to optimize their investment in human capital. Fifteen to twenty years post MBA, I see myself opening a Consultancy agency in West Africa and Latin America to help support and coordinate Human Resources Development in emerging countries.

Poonam: You were accepted by both Wisconsin and Cornell. You finally chose Cornell. How is it the best school for you?
Fatima: I choose UW because of cultural fit and because that is one of the few MBA programs that offers a MBA with a Specialization in HR.

Poonam: How challenging it is to manage school and family at the same time? Do you have any time management tips for the prospective students?

Fatima: It’s been challenging. Yet, I have a very supporting husband who understood that I have little time to do stuff I used to, but I made sure to spend some of my time with him. My family and friends were a great support system. My advice is to use the weekend to study the most (for those who don’t work on weekends), and make sure you understand and are comfortable with your studying style (I study best early mornings than late afternoons; I make sure to have enough sleep)

Poonam: Looking back, what was the most challenging aspect of the school admissions process? How did you approach that challenge and overcome it? How would you advise other MBA applicants who are facing similar challenges?

Fatima: The most challenging part was writing the essays. As a non- native speaker, I was very frustrated at time when I wasn’t able to express my ideas the way I wanted. I overcame my challenge when I started working with Poonam. I am so grateful for all her guidance, patience and professionalism. It was a breeze working with her; she believed in me and that meant a lot to me. I would suggest candidates to find someone like Poonam who would help them through the writing process.

Poonam: Thanks, Fatima.What is your favorite thing about Wisconsin so far?

Fatima: The people.... they are so nice and welcoming! Wisconsin residents are genuinely nice and respectful people. They are always ready to help and make you feel part of their community.

Poonam Is there anything you would like to change about the program?

Fatima: Not really. May be more international trips . ..We have about two global projects being offered at the school, and it would be nice to increase the number of global opportunities.

Poonam: Do you have any admissions tips for applicants for Wisconsin full time MBA (essays, résumé, recommendation letters, interview etc.)?

Fatima : Always reach out to current students, they always are a great resources (they were in your shoes at some point). Avoid last minute submission; give yourself enough time to write compelling essays and give your recommenders enough time before application deadline. The most important thing is to be yourself and enjoy the process.

Poonam: What are your favorite non-school books? What are you hobbies?

Fatima : I love reading, “Les Miserables”, “ Pourquoi les hommes adorent les chieuses” I love working out, cleaning, cooking, reading and baking.

Poonam : Thank you, Fatima for sharing your story with us. Good luck on your Wisconsin experience and your future career.

Note: You can connect with Fatima via LinkedIn.

Dinged...

On one hand it's disappointing to hear, but on the other hand I'm relieved because I know its low, in-state tuition cost and proximity to my hometown (Milwaukee) would have been big in my decision vs other schools even though most people say you shouldn't really choose a school based on cost. Oh well, I guess that makes it a bit simpler for me at least.

Best of luck everyone.
