Just received a portal update to confirm my admission. Maybe those who haven’t received a call yet should check their portals.

So apparently my acceptance is conditional according to the portal. I will wait to see what the conditions are but I do wish that had been clearly communicated to me in my call today...

Hi...not sure of your specific condition but my letter also stated some pre-requisites for admission on pages 2-4. Nothing much really, just some prep courses to be taken, orientation connect weekend etc. I am sure these apply to everyone so nothing to worry about.

This is what mine says:
Your enrollment is conditional upon meeting certain requirements before August 1st. If the conditions are not completed, prior to the start of Orientation, your admission will be rescinded and you will be invited to reapply for the following term.

I'm going to wait and see but from what I understand this is different from what other portal notifications have said. My portal does not outline the conditions and I will need to wait until my hard copy arrives to know what the conditions are.

Got my PDF copy of my admit letter today -- the admit is conditional provided I complete supplemental quant courses before July 15. I really wish the initial notification had been worded less harshly -- it really put a damper on my excitement at the admit.

I agree. This kind of wording does reduces the excitement. Why don't you convey this to the adcom? They would love to hear feedback from the applicants especially admits :)

Did you submit a GMAT or GRE? What was your quant score? What quant classes did you take in undergrad? I'll be applying to Owen this coming fall and only took one college quant course (intermediate algebra (got a B)) and I have a Q44 on the GMAT so I'm interested to see your background. What type of supplemental quant courses do they want you to take and how many?

I submitted GMAT and I did have a quite low quant score (36), so I was expecting to need to take refresher courses.

I transferred statistics in via AP credit in undergrad, and I use stat analysis daily in work, but I was a foreign language major so there's basically no quant on my transcript. I've been asked to take the following courses at about a $300 expense:
- Owen Math Online
- Owen Statistics Online (even though I'm certified in a program through my work, no harm in a refresher course I guess. Also I'm really good at stats and think it's fun so I don't mind too much aside from additional cost)
- Foundations of Statistics
- Quant Foundations Camp
- Accounting Prep (recommended; not required. If I deposit, I plan to take this anyway)
