Started my app too. Fingers Crossed. Apparently, they have raised minimum GMAT score for application fee waiver from 700 to 720. Appears they are gunning for big GMAT numbers and improved US News ranking.


Hello,
Wanted to ask about the application fee waiver for GMAT, and how it works. Also is a score of 720 given a fee waiver? ( I am guessing from the text that a waiver is granted for a 720, but just checking)
Thanks.


I attended a webinar of Owen and asked the same question about the fee waiver policy. The adcom asserted that a 720 score will be granted a fee waiver. So you could be happy with your score :)

if anyone is applying or thinking of applying let us know. We would love to get to know you and give you any information you need. That's the Vanderbilt way, super inclusive.


Hi. I am considering apply to Owen in R2. I have experience in Laws Enforcement and Inspection for the State Securities Commission of Vietnam (think SEC in US). I would like to know are there many students with the similar background in Owen class. And in the curriculum, are there any related cases that I could contribute to?

Thank you a lot for your help!

I am currently completing the application and I am very interested in the school. However, I did not have a chance to visit Owen and would like to know a bit more about the school from a student's perspective.

Could you share with us why you chose Owen over the other schools you are admitted to? Was it financial aid? Culture? Your desired job function/industry post-MBA?


Hi kheown,

I'm glad to see you're interested!

There are a few reasons I chose Owen.

1. Career Center. Read McNamara and the CMC team here at Owen are outstanding. This was one of the most important pieces for me. Vandy has had excellent on-campus recruiting, it has had enormous success placing people in internships, and the job rate is among the highest in the country. Owen also does not mess with the job numbers like some other schools do. You can see the complete report/PDF for each of the last several years.

Employment report: http://www.owen.vanderbilt.edu/employer ... report.cfm

Poets and Quants article about employment report: http://poetsandquants.com/2014/11/05/op ... mba-stats/

Economist ranking of Owen's Career Management Center (9th in the world!!): http://www.economist.com/whichmba/mba-r ... er-service

2. Financial Aid. Owen has been known to be generous with its financial aid packages for qualified students. I felt I got a very competitive offer. You can see from the following article how it compares to other schools. http://poetsandquants.com/2014/11/20/mb ... schools/2/

3. Size. Owen is not a large program. I have found the small size to be a big advantage for me. Faculty are willing to work with students one-on-one on academic projects and professional endeavors. It is easy to get to know everyone in the class. People are very helpful and receptive.

4. Vanderbilt. Owen is a Top 30 MBA program. Vanderbilt is a Top 15 National University. The school is very highly regarded in the marketplace. Also, I've found the student body has all of the brains of the 'elite' East Coast schools...but it also has all of the down-to-earth niceness of the South and Midwest. It is a very happy atmosphere. It's a wonderful culture.

5. Nashville. It is a fun place to be. It is wayyyyy cheaper than Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. I don't think people should overlook how important it is to decide *where* they will be for two years getting their MBA. This is a one-time event in your life. Find somewhere where you'll enjoy yourself. Nashville is certainly that kind of place for me.

Since on-campus housing is reserved to undergraduate students, is it easy to find off-campus accomodation near Owen? Do most students walk/bike to campus or do they dirve?


Last year I lived walking distance from campus. I lived with another first-year MBA student and we got a two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment for $1,580/month. We each paid $790. After utilities and cable/internet, that came out to about $900/month. It was a very nice complex.

This year I live driving distance from campus (though also on a main bus route that is a straight shot to Vandy if you don't want a car) and I am living with a recent Vandy grad in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment for $1040. We each pay $520 and after utilities and internet the total is about $600/month.

I made the move strictly for financial reasons. I loved my set-up last year. BTW, if you live walking distance from campus, you also live walking distance from downtown. So that is a big deal for some people.

Finally, what are some typical outdoor activities at Owen? I didn't see any outdoor activities club (or similar) listed on the student clubs website but I am sure there are some organized activities that take place in the surrounding area :)
kheown


Typical outdoor activities that I know of are hiking/biking on the Natchez Trace http://www.nps.gov/natr/index.htm, road trips to Atlanta/Memphis/Louisville/Bourbon Trail/New Orleans/Chicago/etc, and I've seen students go rafting and many climb walls in Nashville.

Any Vandy undergraduate or graduate student can join the outdoor adventure club/class. http://studentorgs.vanderbilt.edu/wilskills/ To be perfectly honest though, I don't know anyone who has and I doubt an MBA student would find the time to do it. (Especially in their first year.) There are a variety of other outdoor activities available in Middle Tennessee. I'm just not the best person to ask. //sorry

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hey tronghieu1987,

thisisonlyatest will be able to speak more fully about the background of Owen's finance students. I will let them answer.

In terms of how your background would fit at Owen, I think you'd have a great time. Actually, the core finance professor, Bill Christie, has previous work that might be right up your alley.

"By studying the operations of the major financial markets in the mid-1990s, Bill Christie, along with Paul Schultz of Notre Dame University, concluded that Nasdaq market makers were implicitly colluding to maintain artificially high trading profits at the expense of investors. His research subsequently resulted in a sweeping reform of the NASDAQ market, the introduction of the SEC Order Handling Rules, and a $1.027 billion settlement against the defendants."
http://law.vanderbilt.edu/bio/william-christie

I am sure you would really enjoy his class and many others and be able to contribute in a variety of significant ways.

Super great, Teleste! Thanks so much! From your reference, I have kind of found an ally in the school. I definitely will look deeper at the professor's class.

Yes. Students frequently take classes at the law school and you can enroll in pretty much any Vanderbilt University graduate course as long as you can justify it with Academic Affairs. (And they are usually very open to new ideas and experiences that will enable Owen students to get the most out of their MBA and have a great time at Vanderbilt.)

Hey Ralphcuisak,

Apologies for the delayed response. I was AFK during the Fall Break. :)

If I am not mistaken, self-reported scores should be sufficient for the Admissions Committee to make a decision. If admitted, you will then have to verify your scores and provide your transcripts.

I hope this helps!

~Best of luck

Hello everyone,

I'm an international student and will take loan to cover the difference between scholarship and tuition fee. In the application form Vanderbilt asks to provide the amount of money, along with the sources, that I think will be available to cover the cost of attending Owen. But as I said I plan to take loan and right now im not sure how much money will I have? What am i suppose to do in this situation? Will putting in a small amount hurt my chances of getting admission?

I will really appreciation a quick reply.

I was able to visit Vanderbilt today and do a preemptive interview ahead of turning in my app for R1 this coming week. I have to say I was extremely impressed with the students and staff and general vibe of the school. Seemed like a really tight knit and non-pretentious group. I got to sit in on a class as well and get a feel for their learning environment, very collaborative.

Also, having never been before, I have really enjoyed the city of Nashville, and the campus is in a great part of town.

Highly recommend a visit for anyone considering, as it is such a unique environment you'll probably either fall in love or decide its not for you.

Fingers crossed that I get the desired outcome with regards to my app because Vandy is certainly at the top of my list at the moment.

Hey BrainFog,

It appears you have to submit the GMAT score by the deadline.

"You must self-report your official GMAT or GRE test score with your application and submit the official test score to Vanderbilt University at this address in order for your application to be complete. Center for Data Management, Vanderbilt University, PMB 407833, 2301 Vanderbilt Place, Nashville, TN 37240-7833 or Caps@list.vanderbilt.edu if you would prefer to order an electronic transcript.

Your application will not be considered complete until your test scores have been verified. In cases where prior graduate study or a joint degree candidate required the GRE, or where the GRE provides additional insight, we may accept or request a GRE in place of/or in addition to the GMAT."

http://www.owen.vanderbilt.edu/admissio ... scores.cfm

If it won't be possible for you to submit your score before the deadline you could check with the admissions office to see if some sort of accommodation is possible. (Not sure they'll be able to help, but it never hurts to try!)

In regards to your $ question, I am just not sure. If you know any other international students at B-School in the US, it might be a good question to send their way and seek out their advice.

Hi teleste, thanks for your reply. I have already ordered my official score report and it has already been made available to Vandy so I guess I'm safe on that front. Now looking forward to submitting my best application by the deadline and receive a positive response. BTW any suggestions for "making an impact essay in personal or professional capacity". What exactly you think Vandy is looking for?

Thanks

Hello!

I emailed the adcom about a week ago asking the same. They said that we may report loans that we anticipate securing up to $75k/year (in the other tab I guess).

This has no bearing on your application. It's just a preliminary screening of your financial status and it will not be submitted to ISSS until you are admitted to Owen, accept and ISSS requests the document.

For example, I will only have my personal savings, loans and hopefully a scholarship (but I can't report any amount for this since it's just a hope) :) Just report the figures you anticipate from your own savings and loans if you think you won't get any additional funding from other sources.

Hope it helps!

Thanks for your reply Kheown. Lets suppose I say I only have $30k in savings and I report nothing else (no expected loans, scholarships etc). Do you think it can negatively impact my application? Of course $30K nothing compared to $150k that we need for two years. But honestly as of now I'm not thinking about the financial part at all. I will worry about finances when the time comes for it to worry. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Right now I just wanna concentrate on applications but such parts of the form really give me an uneasy feeling.

I'm not sure. It's not supposed to harm your chances but you should have a plan to finance your MBA and you don't get any scholarships.

If you only report $30k form your own savings and nothing else, they might ask you how you're going to get the rest of the money. However, if you report the rest of the $120k as loans, although it might be a lot of money, it's not that crazy (I think up to $100k is feasable).

Anyways, what I would do is email the adcom and ask about your particular case, but keep the loan option open. Owen's adcom is probably the most readily available and responsive I've found during my interactions with them. They've always gotten back to me within 24 hours (in fact, within 5 or 6 haha). I'm sure they will be able to provide a better insight into this.

That was just an example. Of course I have plan to finance my MBA. Savings, loans, and scholarships all are part of that plan. But what I was trying to say right now I don't know how much loan I'm gonna take. I'll have family support too. In addition, I'll take if needed loans from family and friends too. But right now I don't know which source will contribute how much.

I also don't wanna hurt my scholarship chances by stating I'm gonna take $100k loan you know. Anyway I have sent them an email. Hopefully I'll get a quick response.

Thanks :)
