Hello!
I see that I'm the first one to post here :)

I just wanted to know if anyone has received an interview invitation...I submitted my complete application the first week of September but I still haven't heard from them. It's been 4 weeks and I'm going crazy!

Hello!

I am beginning my application to the full time MBA at SDA Bocconi. I haven't given my GMAT yet. Anything I need to keep in mind while filling out the form? Does anybody know about how Bocconi awards scholarships?

Thanks

Have you heard from them yet? I submitted my application on September 30th, but I haven't heard anything either. I have an offer from a comparable school already...Bocconi was my first choice but they don't respond to emails nor seem to be making any kind of progress on my application, so I'm likely going to accept the offer from the other school.

Is it mandatory to send the original transcripts by land mail? It is becoming very expensive to do so. Also, my lousy University won't mail them the transcripts directly. Plz suggest.

I'm applying to Bocconi too and just did my video pre-interview and waiting for the email receipt but it's been two days and nothing.. I'm already being interviewed for other schools and would hear back by mid December to early January... I worry Bocconi is going to be too slow and I would have to give an answer to the other universities before I hear back from them.

Here're few interview tips posted few years back by our SDA forum moderator. Hope that helps you in your interview prep.

Quote:
Be yourself, know your profile in depth (ie, strengths and weaknesses) and get ready to support the story you unravelled in your essays. Engage your interviewer, make the interview as much interactive as possible (but remember to be polite and professional). Dress properly, as MBA interviews have their own dress code. Bring your CV with you, as well as a copy of your application. Remember that the adcoms want to know that you can both make it through the program, which is very demanding, and become an important asset for the school - in other words, succeed in your post-MBA career. As long as your answers help the interviewer understand that you are such a person, you'll be fine.

Hi guys,

For the people who were interviewed, has the interviewer asked you if you were married? I'm trying not to jump to conclusions hence why I'm asking here first if this is a common question being asked. To me it's... illegal to ask it where I'm from so I'm a bit shocked.
