Probably doesn't mean crap but my application status finally changed to complete. Got a mail about it as well.


Yesterday I got the same mail. I started to feel the breath of ad-com on back of my neck :-D :-D


Haha, yeah! And I was surprised by the timing of it. 5 pm EST on a Sunday!


Yeah..I was so surprised about timing too. It was 11 pm in Turkey and I was watching Breaking Bad when I saw mail notification :-D For a second, I thought I was so impressed by the serial and was overwhelmed by the effect of conversations about the pot :lol: :lol: :lol: Then i realized that it is real and hold my breath and read it :-D :-D

I think this waiting is the most irritating part of whole application process.

I received a mail saying my application is complete a couple of days ago. I had my interview on JAN 20th, but my application status is still 'SUBMITTED' according to the portal. Damn!

Guys, I recommend you call Dana Lovas, the admission coordinator. I finally called her last Friday to confirm about my official TOEFL test which is the last pending item on my application, and finally she called ETS to verify my score and merely 2 hours later, I received complete confirmation from the admission office. I went back and forth with her via e-mail but it's certainly much easier to speak directly to rectify the problem.

I am a little concerned here since there seems to be no new interview invite reported but the stats on first page shows that 44 people have been either been interviewed or invited to interview. 44 is a large number for the R2 gmatclub forum. Are people getting interview invites in the second wave?

From last year's stats, the number of interviews was 74 for the same number of GMATClub applicants as this year in R2(129). I think we can remain hopeful for some more time.

There is hope but I cant figure out when so many invites went out. I am sure the first wave didn't have 44 invites and looks like the second wave is yet to happen. Also the fact that after the initial reports of interview invites there have been none except one. So what am I missing here?

Hey guys, no worries! I received email from Tepper yesterday. It seems lots of applications are still under review.
"Thank you for your application to the Tepper MBA program at Carnegie Mellon University. Your Tepper MBA application has been processed and is now complete and under review by the Admissions Committee."

One fact I would like to mention...i submitted my application on the 4th, got the interview invite on the 8th, and interviewed on the 12th through Skype. We were given a link to choose a time slot for the interview. There were around 450 time slots (including skype and face-to-face) available. By 12th Jan, over 200 of them were filled (some slots being in Feb). So in any case, that Tepper at least interviews around 450 for only R2 can be inferred.

Just got information from the admissions office that they had an uptick in applications for R2 and so processing applications for completion is taking longer than expected. Reviews for completion should be finished next week.

thanks for the update alwayswaiting. I'm starting to get a bit concerned. My status still shows submitted and yesterday I got an another email asking for original transcripts, which I had already given them last week. Apparently if things aren't completed by Friday, I get moved to round 3....

I'd give the admissions office a call just in case. Just to make sure they actually received the transcript, even if they haven't entered it in the system yet.

Look back a little way and you will see a bunch of examples of questions asked. I found that these sample questions were pretty much on point. Read about Pittsburgh as a city and CMU/Tepper and be familiar with their history and their plans for the future. This really helped me craft some questions to ask my interviewer. I was interviewed by a member of Adcom and it was nice and relaxed, though I felt stressed out because it was my first interview! Good luck.

I am definitely missing something here, the number of people invited to interview + interviewed is steadily increasing (now at 49) but there are no reports of interview invites..Anybody got an interview invite in the last week?

No you should not be. I think they would send out a wave or two more for the interview invites ... Sit back tight :)
