Random -- but when do classes start? Trying to figure out my work exit/timing.

McCombs requires you to be on campus 8/6, with orientation starting 8/13. First day of classes is 8/22. Hope this helps.

Did yours say anything about an out of state tuition waiver? The website says more than half of scholarships are accompanied by waivers, but my email had no mention.

Did you guys got the scholarship email after accepting the offer? From what I ve read McCombs scholarship are usually worth 15 000 dllrs but very few people from this blog have received some kind of scholarship.

I have not accepted the offer yet. Per the website the offers range between 2K and 10K- that is consistent with my email.

I'm actually a Texas resident so it didn't mention that for me.

That seems to be the case. I applied in R1 and was WL'd. They asked for updates (via an online form) a couple weeks prior to the R2 decision week and those of us on the WL from R1 got a fresh decision during R2 decision week. When I was informed that I would remain on the WL they said they would be reviewing it again in early April. I'm sure that's so they can give you a chance to provide updates and compare you with the the R3 applicant pool and what they know about their yield of R1/R2 admits.

Hi there! I utilized this forum during my gmat prep and just recently rediscovered it and I'm glad I did. I was also waitlisted in R2 and was just wondering what kind of updates they ask for. is it essay format? and do you remember how much space you had to explain any updates? I just want to start preparing mine before the time arrives.

congrats to all the admits and good luck to those still in the waitlist boat.

I posted the questions back on page 12 of this thread. They didn't ask for them to be in essay format, though I didn't test the word limits of the form (none were stated), so I guess you could answer in an essay if you wanted. Personally, I got the impression they were looking for short answers - a paragraph or two.

oops, didn't even think to check if you already posted them. short answer seems more reasonable anyways. Thanks a ton for the info!
