Had my interview today. A little offbeat but nothing too tricky.
Some of the questions:
1. Why Owen?
2. How would you engage yourself with the Vanderbilt community?
3. Other schools that have interested you?
4. What do you look to specialize in and give a few companies that interest you?
5. 60 seconds to present yourself to an employer
6. Goals after your MBA
7. Questions
Hoping for the best.

Well we are really getting close now! The wait is painful. I'll be traveling all day Friday, but hoping I land in Las Vegas Friday evening to good news, which would surely put a nice spin on a weekend in Vegas. Conversely, could also throw quite a damper on the weekend. Either way you'll find me at the craps table.

Best of luck to all!

Only a few days! Does anyone know if Vanderbilt calls US applicants or releases the decision a day or two in advance?

It looks like last year they called a select few admits the evening before the official release. I hope they do that again this year! 8-)

Any additional details on what being a Dean's Scholar entails?

Not much besides what's here: http://www.owen.vanderbilt.edu/admissio ... awards.cfm

She talked about specific events/programming and went into some details of the activities that current Dean's Scholars are doing. She also said that I should expect to receive a lot more information about the award over the next few days from admissions staff and a current Dean's Scholar.

I also read online that there's a special on-campus event for certain Scholars that precedes Welcome Weekend in April. I couldn't really find much more online about this award... So I'm anxiously and eagerly waiting to hear more news!

Really looking forward to this! :-D

That should prompt more scrutiny from the adcom as well as a more in-depth review of your application by a third party once you are admitted (schools generally use third parties to check that some facts stated in your application - employment history, legit recommenders, education history... - are true).

If you can find a way to persuade your recommender to give his work email, that'd be better...

The AdCom told me she would email me more information about the scholarship today and that next week I will receive the admissions packet in the mail.
