Applied in R2. Just got an email today for the Kari interview (applied for an English language waiver). Intend on giving it tomorrow.

Does this usually lead into the live interview?

Posted from my mobile device


So didn't receive a call for the live interview post-Kari. Even though it was fairly simple. Not looking good, it seems.


Antithetically, I did not receive any KIRA interview invite but I did get a chance to interview with them.
You never know. You might receive it this week. It CAN happen. Don't give up the hope yet.

Finally received an interview invite after almost one and a half months.
Since the decision date for R2 is 9th march when should I schedule it?
Their Skype calendar is open for the entire march which is very weird given the fact that they have to roll out the decision on the 9th march.

Can I schedule it for 5th march and except a decision on the 9th march ?




Belated congratulations. I am happy that you received an invite, especially since you were so passionate about Notre Dame.

I hope you get an admit. I just got a phone call intimating me of my admit.

Good luck.

NOTE :- MENDOZA has started calling people. Please update your decisions on the decision tracker as you get them. If you can tell us a little bit about your profile and the scholarship information - It would be great for future applicants too.

I hope all our phone's ring. Best of luck

So guys , I have this dilemma.
I already got admitted to several MBAs with full tuition scholarship. However, Mendoza is my dream school .
So lets say I get admitted to Mendoza and I have to pay everything. What would you do in that case?
Dilemma is: take a 100k+ loan and go for Mendoza or take full scholarship and go to other school?
Just to let you know, I am international student, which means that chances for getting a job in US, a job that would enable me to repay the loans, is getting really slim.

Hmm ... if I was in the same situation I would pick the ones offering a full tuition scholarship. I've also grown to love Notre Dame but at the end of the day you have to be financially smart. Of course it also depends on what the other schools are. Are they still good enough that they'll still be able to help you get a job in the US? If they're horrible at that compared to Notre Dame then another option you can have is just to reapply next year and have a better application.

If you don't mind me asking what are the other schools that gave you full tuition scholarships?

Of course I don't mind, evenmore I would really appreciate your opinion.
Texas Christian University (ranked as 71 per US news, I know few alumni, internationals and they were able to secure placements) , they gave me 100% tuition and fees , plus modest stipend
College of William and Mary , they gave me 100% tuition and fees are not that much.
University of Connecticut (still waiting for it but highly probable )

Your thoughts ?

So I checked them out and you're right, they're lower than Notre Dame in terms of ranking. So the question now is are you okay if you just get to study in the US and go back to your country afterwards? If yes then just pick one of those schools. If not and you don't get a scholarship to Notre Dame are you willing to take the risk and try again next year?

Personally I won't get a loan that big for Notre Dame. I'm in love with what the school has to offer but I don't want to carry a large student loan especially since it's not 100% sure that I can get a job in the US afterwards. If I was in your place I would probably pick TCU since they included a stipend which would be really helpful.

See my responses in brackets. Plus total cost of MBA for me would be around 20k

Congrats mate!!
Did you receive any emails/portal updates too?
Did the director call herself?
I am thinking that because its so late in the INDIAN subcontinent (1 AM midnight) they won't call us.
I might be wrong though.

Plus there is always a chance of getting a waitlist or a ding in which case students will receive the update on the 9 of march.
Oh! This wait is crushing!

P.S -> I applied to the dual MBA+MSBA

Since you're not willing to do this again then just get the one with full scholarship and stipend. As for loans have you looked at prodigy finance?

Guys from the looks of it, they have already admitted 5 students. I dont think they are going to give out more calls. I doubt they would stir up more fuss, atleast for Candidates below 680 from India
