Wondering if any current student can comment on the situation of scholarships and financial aid for international students?
Also how easy is it to obtain GA's from other departments?
On a side note, as a current student what are the three things you would describe in a prospective student that would make him/her a perfect fit for the school provided the stats are on par with the school's requirements.
Any info is greatly appreciated.

Are there no essays this time for applicants? Or do we simply need to write an SOP?

Just a quick tip for this year's applicants, try to scan through the last years' threads, a lot of doubts can be solved from those. Also you can contact last year's admitted applicants for you doubts through GC.

All the best. Keep calm and ace the apps.

Any interviews completed yet? I'd be cool to see what sort of questions were asked.

Had my interview over Skype this morning. Pretty standard interview and more casual than intimidating.

Questions included...

> Tell me a little bit about yourself and why you want to pursue an MBA at Smith.
> What are you long-term and short-term career goals, and what employers are you specifically interested in?
> Assuming that plan doesn't work out, what is your Plan B?
> What are the three most important qualities you look for in an MBA program and what other programs have you applied to?
> Any questions for me?

Just out of curiosity, were you honest answering this question?

what other programs have you applied to?

what other programs have you applied to?

Yeah, I just told him where I have applied and quickly mentioned what I liked about those places, trying to keep it as brief as possible.

As a follow-up the interviewer asked if I had interviewed anywhere else yet and if I had any other interviews planned. Mentioned that I got dinged at Yale, but that I had interviews set up at my other schools and had already interviewed at Tuck.

Also worth noting he had a copy of my resume, but I'm not sure if he had seen the rest of my application or not.

Hi All,

I submitted my app on 24th October. I have submitted official GMAT and Toefl scores but still my application status says incomplete.
I got mail from admissions team that says-
"Please allow 1-2 weeks for your application status to be updated. During this time we will match any test scores or supplemental materials that may have been sent to us prior to submitting your application. We will update your status as we process the application."

I'm confused. Anyone else who has had this issue?

Thanks,

Smith has one week from the deadline by which it expects LOR and Official scores to be submitted, otherwise application is considered for next round.

When I submitted my official scores, it took 4-5 days to get updated on the portal.
