Don't lose hope man. Where else have you applied? There may have been a thing or two that ticked the adcom off (recs, workexp maybe?). The Ross essays were very straightforward.

Applied to Kellogg in R1, didn't make the cut.
Applied to UCLA as well, but UCLA is having a pretty intense year. My essays were great I thought... maybe it is my recs?
Last year in R3 I applied to like 4 top schools (Harvard, Kellogg, Stern) - that was a big mistake, was insanely rushed and was in R3 = not gonna happen.

I don't know man, frustrating stuff.

I feel you buddy :( I thought my essays were solid, only had positive feedback from everyone who read them. Maybe not visiting the school and being on the lighter side in terms of work experience (3 years) killed my chances. Doesn't help that they had a 30% increase in applications.

Any Indian applicant with less than 750 in GMAT got an interview invite?

740 GMAT, 5.5 years of Tech Consulting. Wrote really good essays. No invite. I think the increase in applications may have hurt. They usually favor Indians a lot, so was sure of at least an invite. Three dings now, brutal and bitter pill.

Hoping for better luck in other 5 applications. Else it is a wrap for this year.

Looks like it is the GMAT factor for Indians this time. Dont see any Indian with a GMAT score of less than 750 getting an interview invite.

Anyone from India, who's scheduled the interview and agreed for the team activity on 7th Feb? If yes, could you please post some details like what are the timings on 7th and where is it in Delhi?

I plan to schedule my interview after a few days but want to book tickets for the event ASAP.

Also, only Skype option for India candidates?


Same query !!

That is just inhuman man! 750! I was so proud of my 740. Suddenly seems very inadequate. Do any schools admit Indians below 750 now?

I am sure that's not the reason. I have a 750 and long lineage of family members graduating from university of michigan. Wonderfully crafted essays and recommendation. But then, can't help it.

The more I actually get into this process, the more mysterious it gets. I don't think ANYONE can claim to know exactly how it works. And to be honest, that frustrates me more than anything else. There is no way to say what will work and what will not. No 20 variables that can determine a probability. For an engineer, that is the most frustrating thing ever. :P
But crib all you want, this is the process. So you have to live with it and hope something clicks somewhere.
All the best everyone!

I think that there are a number of elements we can't control, and this is what's frustrating.
One thing that I believe is important is the story. Not how good are crafted your essays but what they tell. This is the element that I believe frustrates everyone, because it cannot be measured or quantified. There is no way to tell I have a 760 story, you have a 700 story so my story is definitely better. We try to simplify the process and compare GPA, GMAT and so on but this will never work.
Another key element out of the applicant's control are the other applicants. We may be awesome but the truth is that there is an insane competition, and we don't even know how the schools divide applicants in clusters, and who are our competitors in the process.

I only wish everyone the best.
