Yeah!! It certainly seems that we are applying at the worst possible year. Profiles similar to those that used to get huge chunks of scholarships are having a hard time to even get admitted this time around. And it's same whichever part of Geography you look at.

Anyways, so are you looking forward to join? Or are you waiting results from other schools as well?

Guys, finally admitted with a 25% scholarship!


Hey roy26,

Congratulations on the admit and the scholarship.

I was interviewed last Friday and am waiting for an update.
How long did UCD take to get back?

Also could you tell a little about your profile and GMAT score.


4+ years of IT experience, 700 GMAT and good extracurriculars! What about you?

I had applied on 5th of October, notified on 30th, interviewed on 15th of November and finally got offered on 28th!


Quite similar.... minus the GMAT... 4 years IT, 690 GMAT. Submitted application towards the end of October, interviewed last week and waiting for an update.
Now fingers crossed!

Anyone who is planning to apply in the upcoming weeks? I got a mail from the admissions team yesterday that the scholarship deadlines for the program have already passed. Really Disheartening!!

I believe they'll discuss scholarships again on February. It's close for this round.
Please go ahead and apply. YOu might get a admit now and scholarship notifications later.

Regards,
Arnab

Hi shikhaPorwal,

I found that my interview was more of a conversation than an intense formal interview that one might typically have when applying for a job. I'd suggest reviewing your application again and thinking about why you've applied to the program, what you expect out of the program and what you bring to the program.

Best of luck.

I applied in on the first week of Jan. Haven't heard anything from them yet!! Was anyone dinged without the interview because of the GMAT score? Fingers crossed.

I submitted my application yesterday. But without the TOEFL/IELTS score.
Have dropped a mail some days back to check whether they accept the application without English proficiency test results or not, but didn't get a reply, so took a risk.

It's true they are slow in responding to mails. You guys can keep following up with them. They'll reply eventually.
