Hi Gang-

I'll be applying round 2 this year. Could someone (current students?) give me an idea if you have any classmates with a similar background or really give me an idea on my chances of getting in.

GMAT: 710 (Q48 V39 IR7 AWA 6.0)
GPA: 3.3 (graduate and undergraduate - not sure what the individual break out is off the top of my head. UT doesn't provide it to you, so I'll have to manually calculate them at some point)
Undegraduate Education: University of Texas 5 year Masters/Bachelors Accounting Program
Work Experience: 4 years in Big 4 Audit working exclusively on an integrated Oil and Gas client in Houston
Extra Curriculars: Fraternity and Silver Spurs leadership positions during undergrad; licensed CPA in the state of Texas
Post MBA Goals: Energy-focused investment banking in Houston

Thanks All!

Your background and goals fit well in the class, from what I have seen. It should be feasible for you to get in. Don't worry and just focus on putting your best into your essays etc.

Hello Everyone!
I am planning to apply to McCombs in Round 2.
My profile :
GMAT : 730
Work ex : 7 yrs in Hydrocarbon/Oil & gas sector EPC business at one of INDIA's biggest EPC firms
CGPA: 7.24/10
Extra circulars : Undergrad : Member of DEBATE committee, organised tech fest etc

Can any of current students active on forum provide info if scholarships are also granted in ROUND 2 ? And are any of students granted full ride at McCombs?

Are you sure, OP? This sounds rather dubious since aren't all scholarships based on merit? I could definitely see a priority going to R1 + R2 over R3, but what you said doesn't sound right (however, I don't really know enough about the process to properly dispute it).

Yep. Just submitted mine. Now waiting for the payment emails so I can pay. This school has a weird application compared to the other two I did (UCLA and CMU). Doesn't let you pay right after submitting and they dont take VISA :|
