After submitting my application, I saw an application fee waiver, which I suppose has been granted since I mentioned I am associated with Forte Foundation(in the section where they list Peace Corps, Teach for America, etc). As per my knowledge, the payment is waived only if you are registered in the Forte MBA Launch Program, which is a rigorous 10 month program (and doesn't take place in India, so I could not register :cry: ).
I have written to Tepper to confirm if this was done by mistake or if I am actually eligible for the waiver just by being a Forte Foundation Member.
I would like to request current students(female students must be aware of Forte Foundation) to kindly shed some light on this.

P.S I had sent my GMAT Score in April and TOEFL in September, but none of the scores have been received till now, waiting for admissions team to update the same , though the happiness on seeing the app fee waiver overcame the anxiety of scores not being received yet :P

Tepper does not accept online transcript....really? now I need to order physical copies of the transcript from my schools, scan them, and upload them to the portal.....thought CMU would be more tech savvy than this.

I just submitted my app. I can see awaiting status on GMAT & TOEFL scores. I just ordered CMU as recipient for my scores(GMAT+Toefl) and probably it will take 7-10 days to reach them. Will that affect my application?

Absolutely not. In fact, as long as all the supporting documents (GMAT, TOEFL, Recommendations, Transcripts..etc) are submitted before November 3, you are good.

Got a reply from admissions team:
Some of your checklist items, like the Official Test Score, will show a status of “awaiting” because our team has not yet begun to review your application components. Once our processing team gets to your application, the first thing they will do is go to our GMAT database and match your official score sent to make this checklist item green. This is still an manual matching process and we look at applications in the order that they are submitted. If you’ve sent your official score report to our code, there is nothing further you need to do at this time. We ask that you give our team up to a couple of weeks after the deadline to process the volume of applications, but sometimes you will hear from us much sooner. You will receive and email from us when you application is marked as complete, but feel free to keep checking your status page online as well.

So no need to worry if it shows "awaiting" :)

Hi,

The admissions team got back to me asking me to submit the grading scale for my degrees: undergrad and postgrad.
We dont have it in my transcript though the same can be found online which I have uploaded.
Will that suffice?
No update yet in the application. Still showing as awaiting.

I know it was a hard work to put across the applications for Tepper Round 1.

Now, it is the grueling wait for the interview. Tepper normally gives early interview so don't waste time and start preparing for the interviews.

Some of the questions Tepper adcom will ask you and those were no-brainer

Why MBA?
Why Tepper?
Why Now?
Walk through your resume.

Format all the answers in STAR format . What is STAR Format?
S-> Situation
T -> Task
A -> Action
R -> Result

So arrange the answers as much as possible in the above format.

If you are coming to Pittsburgh for an interview, do interact with current student - 2nd years and 1st years. Our Mini 1 finals are approaching so we might not be as available but one of us will always be there.

Internationals -> it will be a skype interview so do set up your skype id and put a professional pic as Skype Display pic. Once you get the Interview, do start practicing interview, its a whole different ball game.

All the best for interviews.

Hi Dhivya89,

Is your issue resolved? Did the ADCOM come back to you?
They need the GPA computaion scale and I think the one provided by you should suffice.

Thanks for your help Kinjal. Your proactive inputs and the skype session you organized were very helpful. :)

Request you to share any info on last year's process on Tepper's interview calls. How soon did they start sending Interview invites? Till when did they send invites?

Thanks.

Hey sharpsagi,

The deadline was same the last year too.
The first wave of invite was on the 8th of October last year and it was out by this time :)
The last invite went out somewhere around 5th of December and the Result date was 15th of December.

All the best!

If you have done your WES Transcript Evaluation any time before, that can work here as an alternative.
