Got an unsolicited email last night from a former student who focused in the same field I want to concentrate in. Thought that was a nice gesture. Still no word from admissions though.


No idea whatsoever.

That's definitely a good sign. I got the same thing.
The alum or student who contacted you understood why he or she was asked to contact you.
Good luck!

After the 5th Straight reject, I would do anything - literally anything to get ONE just ONE admit from Tepper. I just one one green in my status. Frankly, with a score of 760, I thought I would be choosing colleges. And I didn't even apply to top 10 schools. God !!!

Kinjal, I have this hunch that Tepper will be your final resting ground. Keep your head high. All the best!

I sorta know how you feel - just keep your head up and don't let it discourage you!

On the other hand, I may have screwed myself by leaving my job a couple months ago, as I was certain I'd get into a top school given my work experience and whatnot (other reasons why I left, but was completely voluntary). Now, not so much :-/ So, unless you are in the same situation, it could be worse! Lol

Nope !! I learnt my lesson when I did the same in Indian MBA space. Took a break and I am still justifying that in the optional essays I wrote.

Got an email from Kari Calvario asking my documents of permanent residency ( I am a green card holder currently working in China). Is this a good sign that they ask me for immigration documents a week before the notification date?

I'm starting to suspect that it's a bad sign for those of us not contacted by current students. Has anyone traced the number of people that said they got contacted, prior to admission, in R1 or previous years?

Hey ankurgupta03 can you please clarify whether it was the case with R1 admits please?

I received an e-mail from a previous student a little over a week before my interview. They just wanted to know if I had any questions about the program and did not mention anything about my upcoming interview. I am an R2 applicant awaiting a decision.

R2 applicant last year. I was never contacted by a current student until after decisions were released.

I was accepted in R1 and was not contacted by a current student. I'm not sure if conditions have changed in R2, but I wouldn't read too much into it.
