Creating a place for Olin-wannabees to hang out and network with other applicants. Let's do this. Olin 2020!

We can use this platform to know each-other, build network, exchange ideas/information, discuss application strategies, share interview /school visit experiences, and boost one-another's morale to face the tough admission process.

Happy networking.

In my account's dashboard, there's a message like this:
Your application is missing documents necessary to render decision. We will e-mail you a list of the specific documents required. You can e-mail the documents to OlinGradAdmissions@wustl.edu or provide us with an update on when we can expect to receive them.

But I haven't received any emails from them yet.
Do you guys have same message on your dashboard?

I suggest you reach out to the adcom or the person who you're in touch with to know what is missing.

Heard from them last week, which was really surprising considering it was only about a week after deadline and I submitted a last minute app. They are probably still going through the apps.

Thanks guys, I've noticed that maybe I forgot to submit my diploma since I'm an international student and they require it for international students.
I uploaded it and send an email to the admissions. I hope this works.

Yes, I have it scheduled on campus in November and I think someone else said they already had their interview. They contacted me very quickly after I applied

thanks for info! this means one of the two things. Either they invite candidates which they find most attractive first. Or they break them down into groups based on whatever factor (alphabetical order, US/international, etc). Any ideas on how this works in case of Olin? In most of the schools i applied to, i saw that majority of applicants got invited on the same day. But it is WashU Olin and Georgia Tech, where some people got invited a long time ago, but i didn't hear anything from them. so i wonder whether they are not interested in me, or it is just their procedure to break candidates into some kind of groups independently from how competitive they are.

I don't know what's the criteria. I have a 750 so they probably liked that but my WE is on the lower end. They also invited me to Women's Weekend on campus, so maybe they checked female apps first to allow time for logistics?
Not sure if location had something to do with the timing. I'm international but live in the midwest at the moment.

interesting. my gmat is also 750, but my we is on the high end 8-) i am not even sure what is more preferable for schools in terms of low WE or high WE, i guess there is no rule to that and its case-by-case. logistics for Women's Weekend could well be an explanation. also it important whether you will have to obtain an F-1 visa or you are on a different type of visa that will allow you to go to school there? if you don't need F-1 and since you are already there , then you could fall into the US applicant bucket. my assumption is that schools nowadays might be especially careful enrolling people who need F-1, since there is a chance that some of them will not be able to attend due to visa policy chances or visa denials, etc.

Has any got an interview invite other than on-campus ones?

Guys, I am planning to conduct a live chat session on GMATClub (at a mutually agreed time and date) where one of members of the Admission Committee can address all our queries. I will try to have one current student too in the chat. Please let me know if you like to have such a session here!!

Yes. That would be very helpful. Please plan it on a weekend so that everyone is available and not busy with office. I suppose 12th November would be great.

Thank you for the initiative. Looking forward to it.
