Hey guyz,

Is there anyone who has applied in the 1st round and is yet to hear from the admissions office ?

I see people have been interviewed and few have already received admission offer.

I have applied on 1 Oct, 2015.

Does it mean its a reject ?

Rgs,

JHM

Hi aravinth545

Buddy, need some help, after submitting my Application, I got one email from Penn State that the Application has been submitted.

Submission Date- 19th Nov
Round Deadline- 1st Dec

No information after that from Smeal. Does Smeal send information on Application Complete as well? (Read somewhere on the forum that they do)

They don't send any confirmation.
You need to wait for interview invite.

Yup, here you go.

You need to click on the link and login to the video application ('Kira' I guess). It is available for iOS as well.
Once you register you will get an email, and can then click on the link to go in for the interview.

You can practice the interview as many times as you want. And then go for the final interview.

Interview-
It will be a set of 6 questions, prompts. Very very spontaneous and about 30 secs to prepare for each, and then 1-2 mins for response.
They run one after the other and have to be completed in one shot + You cannot go for a reattempt.

Important here are the prompts- they can be anythings and everything. Here are some examples, which you might encounter during the practice.

1) If you have to explain Internet to someone your age, but back in the year 1900, how would you do?
2) If you are given unlimited resources (money etc) for 1 day, what will you do and why?
3) There is a dark room with no light and nothing else. What will you do there if sent in for 2 hrs.

Hope this helps, remember the trick is to be absolutely spontaneous and take it like an extempore.

Guys,

Did anyone who applied for the 1st Dec deadline get a response back?
They have rolling admissions, so in case someone got a response back, can you please update.

No sure if they will update post 1st December.

My Submission Date- 19th Nov.

Thanks

They have a really small class and have heard they are very very particular about the overall credentials, and not just the gmat.
Sorry to hear mate, but there are many other great schools in your lineup, so will make it.

Please share your interview experience.
