ohiovictor, if you applied in R3 I'd say your chance is quite slim unfortunately. The announcement date is Mar 20th and there are currently only 2 interview slots on the 17th and 18th, which could be gone soon. It stll can happen but I'd recommend you to focus on other schools. Sorry

Planning is crucial because it keeps me sane and gives me a great sense of satisfaction. Here is a snapshot of […]

Had my interview on 18th with Andrew (Senior Admissions Director). Very pleasant, interactive, and fun conversation. Some of the q's I can remember:

1) Walk thru resume and also tell a bit about your hobbies etc.
2) Follow up question on my skills as an impressionist. Followed by a 5 minute discussion on star wars :P
3) Question on my current experience at family firm and challenging projects there.
4) Why MBA now? - Since I have applied to and got thru Simon once earlier, there were some questions on that as well.
5) How would you explain to an employer why you have held 4 jobs in 7 years.
6) ST and LT girls
7) Couple of follow up questions here
8) Why Simon?
9) If I were to put you in front of the adcom right now, what would you want to highlight about your candidacy?

Then I asked my questions. Overall very good experience. He said decisions can come out earlier than April 30. All the best to all!
