Yeah..It seems so..

I hope it will not start with a great disappointment for rest of us :(


This is just the beginning, I wouldn't worry just yet. :-D


I wonder whether the interview invite is about submission date of application or not. I submitted it before last day. I hope they are still working on it :?

Congrats to all who got the invite. Make the best of it.
For those who have not received, there is absolutely no reason to worry.
If I remember correctly, there were two more waves of invites, so sit back tight.

For all who have got an invite, feel free to contact me if you need any help.
All the best!

I wonder if they prioritize international students then? I submitted my application on the very last day, quite surprised when I received an invitation for interview in just four days. But in the e-mail they said that it's all based on their initial review on the application, so fingers crossed you all will received one very soon!

No it is not.
I submitted my application on the last day and got an invite just two days after that in the first wave :)

Thanks for making the effort Ankur and congratulations on your admit. Have you decided whether you'll be matriculating?
I have scheduled my interview with Emily in a couple of weeks' time. Do you have any tips about where/how to set up the laptop and what to wear for the interview? Should they be able to see my whole body on the screen or just above the torso? How close to the laptop should I sit? Just random questions that keep popping up in my head.

Thanks a lot and congratulations to you too for the invite.
Even I had my interview with Emily. She is nice :)

Going by my experience in skype interviews,

1. Wear proper business formals. Suit tie.
2. Make sure that the background is clutter free. Best would be to have a plain wall behind you, so that the interviewer is not disturbed.
3. You can plug in the headphones. I asked for the permission and then plugged them in my ears.
4. Just the torso should be fine, so you can actually interview in shorts. But I would suggest you to get dressed properly, as it givens you a sense of seriousness :)

I have not received any scholarship from Tepper, so I have a tough decision to make.
I have applied to quiet a few schools in R2, so will wait for some other results and then decide

Let me know if you have any other questions.

All the best!

If it puts any of your minds at ease, I applied R1 with a 640 GMAT and got an interview invitation in the first wave. There were a lot of others who seemed to be much more qualified than I was who got interview invitations in later rounds. I can't speak to Tepper's methodology, but I can assure you that you shouldn't be worrying this early in the game. The invitation will come.

Additionally, I should mention that I had spoken with a member of the admissions committee on a number of different occasions. If you haven't done so yet, I HIGHLY recommend that you do. If nothing else, you can ask them to put you in touch with a current student who is studying whatever you're hoping to study. Makes for really good conversation in your interview and does not go unnoticed. In fact, I'm fairly convinced my interactions with the adcom are what got me in the first wave.

Another first rounder here: I was invited very late in the admissions cycle and got a good offer from Tepper. I was agonizing that I had a ding until late November, then got the interview invite, interviewed in early december, and got admit with a good scholarship!

If you are not invited today, your profile isn't weaker than anyone else, and don't obsess over it. Good luck!

Just interviewed via Skype with the admission office yesterday. My tips for all candidates is to do mock interview with your practice partner using questions compiled on previous pages. Seriously it helped me a lot when I did the interview, the interview flows really well and feel more like conversation with her. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and overall I received good feedback about my leadership experience.

Last year it looks like they were sent out towards the end of January, then a handful trickle in through mid-February. Things can always change from year to year.

Hi Guys,

I applied for Round 2 and got a mail from tepper that they would let me know about the interview decision by Jan 26th.
Felt strange after reading the posts here on how applicants for round 2 directly got their interview calls.
Anyone on the same boat as me?

Hi, it seems you are also lucky. I did not have any e-mail or notification from online application system. Now , I felt even more strange :-D
