Admit Weekend

To those who attended: How did the admit weekend go? Were all doubts clarified? Would be great to know the details.

Had a great time this weekend and was quite impressed by the other admitted students. The facilities were incredible, staff was friendly, and Olin certainly spared no expense to show us a good time. Of the 20-30 people I discussed with, maybe 3-4 are 100% set on attending. For me personally, I liked Olin but I'm not sure it differentiated itself from a value perspective compared to the other options I have on the table.

I think ZSB said it best. Olin made sure to show all admitted students a good time. Like him I was generally impressed by the caliber of students Olin admitted and just as impressed with the campus facilities, staff and current students I met with. The Dean's welcome message was truly inspiring and it sounds like he's focused on raising the schools visibility nationally and to some extent internationally. Throughout the weekend the things that stuck out the most to me were the conversations I had with students. They were genuine in their respnsonses about the program and it's focus on creating a friendly, collaborative and tight knit community. I was also just as impressed at learning more about the opportunities offered through the CEL practicum and how that will help expand my marketable skills. Although I am biased as I chose Olin before admit weekend my visit helped re-affirm to me that I made the right choice.



Deciding between Olin and other schools

Anyone else decide to join Olin? I'm having a difficult time deciding between a few options.

I decided on Olin a few months back. I think when you're deciding on where to enroll it's best to have a pro's and con's list. For me I looked at the total cost of attenadance for each program I got in to, I looked at their list of employers, and employment reports, I looked at their alumni base and checked what field they ended up being in. I also factored in my signicant other and focused on places we had a family tie, or professional tie to. In the end Wash U came out way ahead of my other choices and thus felt comfortable enough to commit early. Good luck on your decision and hopefully you choose the right school for you.

I am waiting on my other round 2 schools to get back to me. Regardless, Olin is in my top 2. I really like the small class size and the experiential learning opportunities. And, looking at the employment statistics, looks like all top companies (consulting included) recruits there. I read somewhere that some 80 companies recruit; that is crazy as the class size is usually around 130-140.

And, ZSB123, i live in Minnesota and I cant wait to get out of this ridiculous winter! You might want to take that into account :)

Like Ruggerkaz mentioned the program is small but a lot of top companies recruit from them. I think partly because their UG business school is so highly regarded and I think having that network can pay more dividends in the future. The weather in the mid west is bad (not from there) but it's better than Minnesota. If you're interested in attending you can always try to negotiate, however that only works if the school is higher ranked or a peer. ZSB if possible I'd pay a visit to both schools to check out the vibe and your fit. Also a key thing to note is the school as a whole is the top school in Missouri and very regarded in the Midwest. Good luck on your decision.
