I submitted my application on Wednesday Feb 1st (extended deadline of R2) and they invited me to the interview on Feb 3rd. I'm really surprised at the speed. Maybe because I applied for Health Sector MBA?. You should check whether the email was tagged promotion if you are using gmail (happened to me for another school!).

I submitted my application on Wednesday Feb 1st and they invited me to the interview on Feb 3rd. I have got his message:

Thank you for submitting an application to the Boston University Questrom School of Business. The Admissions Committee has started its review of your application and would like to learn more about you.

Can anybody tell me why have they invited for an interview without completely reviewing my application?

As far as I can note, they have invited people with 700+ GMAT scores from over represented countries (think India, China) and people with 700- GMAT scores from not so over representative countries. That is just a guess estimate but you should not worry. There should be at least one huge wave of invites that should go out because with a ranking of 40+, BU won't have much of 700+ candidates. In fact, 700+ candidates will withdraw from the school as time progress (know that the R1 deposit deadline has passed and some of the students might have asked for some extension)

You can still stay hopeful. Probably by the end of next week, Friday, Feb 17, 2017!

Just had the interview. It's fairly normal, just basic questions: resume? Why MBA? Why Questrom? Leadership exp... But I think I kind bombed it, being too nervous and forgeting to mention some important points. It lasts only 22 minutes. Guess it'll be a rejection.

Apparently, I just noticed that there has been a decline in Questrom rankings by 11 points. That's huge. However, I am yet to make out as to what are the specific reasons that led to such a huge drop.

Other great schools that saw a major drop includes Carlson (-17) and Rice Jones (-11)

Guys, esp. Indian candidates
What I noticed is BU had provided admission to a lot of Indian candidates at a very high rate in round 1 with avg (700-720 gmat range)
now i believe most would have invested the first deposit to b on the safer side
I have a hunch that BU is gonna waitlist many candidates (incl the ones who havent been interviewd) in rd 2 since the guys who recd aadmissions could jump ship anytime later, and as u can see the WL of BU at present is very small compared to similarly ranked colleges.
SO, have hope :)
