Hi,
Anyone got decision for R2? Will Wisconsin release all decisions on the same date or any rolling basis?

I submitted my application on 10 Jan and got interview invitation just 1 day after, so I just feel like I've been waiting for so long :D. Also, the interview went so fast in 30 mins (5' for school introduction from AO, 20' for their questions & 5' for my questions). The Internet connection was not good then and we had to turn of video, so a bit worried now. I'm not sure if they could hear my answer well, honestly.

Applied on the deadline day. Heard nothing from the school till yesterday. So I mailed them enquiring about the status.

Here is what they had to say ->

Quote:
Thank you for reaching out. We are still in the process of reviewing applications and setting up interviews. Keep in mind not all applicants are interviewed. You will hear back from us on March 2 with a decision.


I have seen enough posts on the forum to understand that it is a fancy pansy way of sugarcoating a bad news. What they really mean here is ->

You are dinged. Wait for the 2nd of march to get that official ding email.

All the best to the rest of you. Madison is a great city and an even better program.

Best
Stone

I am on the fence! I got a terrific scholarship offer and the students and staff have been great, BUT I also Got into a higher ranked program with some $$ and am waiting to hear back from other higher ranked programs.

After talking to students I am pretty comfortable with the program despite the fact they almost shut down this year, but it still makes me a little bit weary...

Decision day April 15th is going to be tough!

Wisconsin has a fantastic network and the care and attention you get as a student is second to none.

Madison is a terrific program and a great city. The only turn off is the fact that it might be on the verge of shutting down. What if it longer exists say after 5 years you graduate?Will you be okay with your alma mater no longer in the picture ?

Again, I don't want to be misconstrued. I have zero doubts that Madison would help you get a great job!

stonecold have you spoken with anyone on the specialization boards there about the situation or current department directors. If not I'd encourage you to do so.

Oh I have. The alumni network was absolutely Furious when they came to know about the plans that Admissions board had regarding scrapping there FT MBA. The alumni network played a huge role to save the program. Madison is a fabulous school. But the management is a pain in the keister.

It's true, I also felt angry when I applied in the early round, at the time they are attempting to close the program without noticing committed applicant.
But the alumni's fim attitude really give me the confident, and after that, I can see Madison showing some positive changes, which is good trend, and let's see what happen and wish to meet you in Madison.
