Got an acceptance call Sunday.

Everyone from past rounds talks about going on the portal to see their official decision and aid offers. Is this just the original application portal? I don't see anything on there.



For me the portal is updated...it is a ding!

I browsed through this thread and it seems that sometimes scholarship/fellowship info comes later but I haven't seen anyone say for certain. I'll wait until EOD I guess.

I'd recommend waiting. I was accepted in R1 and the scholarship/fellowship later came about 2 hours after the acceptance letter. I assume R3 will be the same. Just keep checking your portal and you'll see if there's a new letter posted in there.

The scholarship info is out there. After you click the initial acceptance letter there’s a link at the bottom to go back to the application portal. When you go back to the application portal you will see another update to your application status link. Click that and the fellowship letter is there.

So if there is no additional update on your application portal after going back, can I assume there is no fellowship? Tks.

I wouldn't lose hope. FWIW the fellowship letter looks the same as the acceptance one so you might miss it on first glance.

I am so confused. Where are we supposed to see this?

In your portal under the "Status Update Section" There is a link that says "View Update". Are you saying you guys you have scholarship are seeing two links there?

No, once you click on that and it takes you to the letter of admission. At the bottom of this admission offer letter, it will say "The following letters are available for this account:" and it will have two links (if you have a scholarship) - one for the admission offer letter itself and one for the scholarship details. Depending on which letter was posted last, the "View Update" might take you to the scholarship letter itself.

Ah I see. There is nothing at the bottom on my letter besides "Return to Application Status", so that must mean nada for me :/

Thanks for clarification eln1no88. Guess I will wait EOD and see how things go. If nothing shows up, then will ask the school directly :)

Hey there kfstudent ! Insightful review. I noticed that this was your first post to GMATClub. Welcome.

It seems like you had a very poor experience at KF. The schools employment reports for class of 2016 show 95% of students received an offer within 3 months, and for class of 2017 (your class, right?), that number dropped to 93%. So, the verified employment numbers don't quite agree with the statement "very qualified people are not doing well because of the current situation at the school."

As someone who is about to commit two years and a ton of money to this program, your review was initially concerning. I have heard similar rumblings with the turnover of program staff, but haven't let that sway me because overall it seems like a great program, and staff turnover / culture shift occurs at every program.

If you don't mind me asking:

- Were you able to secure employment after graduating in 2017?
- If so, was it the role you desired upon completing the program?
- How are your fellow classmates who weren't able to secure employment (the7%) currently doing?
- R3 decisions were just released today. What inspired you to write the review close to a year after leaving the program?

I don't want to blindly defend the program, but I also feel as though there are some missing pieces to your story.. Your review/advice helps tons of future student make once in a lifetime decision, so that's why I wanted to reach out for clarification. Thanks.

I am not defending kfstudent or anything.
But the requirement for such employment report and such is 80% (if my memory serves me correctly). So, it is possible that those 93% is of 80% or more of the class. So, in the worst case scenario, about 75% got offers in 3 months.
Also, the job market is practically restricted for internationals and that can influence a review too.

The poster is not an international student however. Based on the last line of that review.

They are likely class of 2018, not 2017.

Does the employment report state 80%? Usually it is a portion of applicants and usually those who have not found a job or taken one they seem acceptable don’t fill out the survey. And while that percentage is helpful, it’s not an absolute measurement of quality and diversity of employment opportunities. Stanford for example reports that only 82% of the recent business school grads found a job three months after graduation. Does that mean UNC>GSB?

I agree with you and your points.
But all I wanted to point out that those % numbers may be a bit misleading.
A very few schools actually report the % of reporting students. But if that number is less than 80% (again, don't quote me on that number alone), the school can't publish it without violating the standards (I will have to search which authority and such, but it is there).
And that example of 75% was the worst case scenario and not a suggestion of that happened.

For Stanford, they also report (along with 82% job offers) that many of its student didn't seek job and working on their own project - and I believe with % number of such students. When we add these two numbers, the actual employment report doesn't look as bad as it looks with looking at 82% in isolation.

Anyway, it was just an opinion and another viewpoint into that discussion, nothing more.
