I just received a call from Tiana. I got in.

It's a surprise because I didn't expect to get in. I interviewed remotely via Skype and didn't get a chance to do the Q&A. Also I have to say that Olin's MBA interview questions are well-designed and made so I had a little bit hard time during my interview (I think I still performed pretty good).

Good luck to all. By the way, per Tiana, the official update will kick in tomorrow. So guys, you still have time.

But no call means no admission

No point ?

Congrats though

Me neither. In my case it’s even worse. I had a student reach out to me last week if I had any questions about the program. With the timing, I was almost certain I was in since he was a student ambassador and possibly making sure I was interested. But I guess not...

This whole process is incredibly emotionally draining. They should time rejections at the same time as admits so we aren’t here guessing how all this works. Moreover, why even invite over for an interview if I just don’t have the stats to get in? Like what’s the point? I’ve interviewed for several schools. 3/4 interviews went incredibly well. Yet at the end of the day my stats are just too low to admit me. Getting a rejection is a lot easier if I don’t get an interview and have good rapport with the interviewer post interview...

What are your stats if you don’t mind me asking...I was waitlisted round 1

Pretty bad...313 GRE and 2.7 GPA with 7 years WE. I didn’t get anywhere last year (I didn’t even try Olin with my 590 GMAT last year).

Olin is my top school (even though I didn’t rank them super high on the Consortium list...just didn’t think I’d have a shot) but I’m not waiting another year to possibly improve. That’s why I applied to almost a dozen schools. If I don’t get Olin I’m doing 2 more applications (1 which is my alma mater that I’m 100% sure to gain admission even though it has zip OCR).[/quote]

Got it my gre is 296 with 3.12 gpa and I applied round 1 but was waitlisted however I got in at Rochester I withdrew my application from Olin

I cannot agree more. I have a 660 gmat with 6 years of management consulting work ex. I know my profile is brilliant. Very much a top 10 kinda profile. But i just cant score on gmat somehow. I applied to 10 schools this year. Got called by just foster in Jan. Gave my interview, feeling now that I am done I can focus on GRE maybe. Went full throttle and was preparing well. Suddenly get a call from Olin. I was like, I am chose will give my best and get in this time.

I left studying for GRE. Interview day came. I gave an awesome interview. To the extent that she said you have it in you what we are looking for and Olin is in line with your aspirations. It is a huge thing to say.

But i didnt know of course that being an indian male with a 660 gmat. Should have not just applied. Even though i will get a call and no matter I might have the best intterview this college ever saw, even then they wont give me an admit. Then why waste my time? Then why make me suffer. If gmat is your criteria, just say it right away. Don't ignite the fire to put water on it. It burns more than just being rejected without an interview.

Giving an amazing interview to be rejected? Utterly disappointed.
