Just one quick question, does anyone know how interviewers send back their reviews (just a written doc or ticking boxes) and how does this really affect the adcom decisions?


My interviewer had a legal pad, so I'm not sure...

According to a very old copy of How to Get Into the Top MBA Schools, Chicago has a very detailed list of positive and negative attributes. Presumably the interviewer picks the ones that apply...

I read in Rose's blog that she is expecting 250 on-campus interviews this week! At 50/day, that must be QUITE a few interviewers.

Does anyone know what is the selection rate after an interview? Are we looking at a 50% or more like 30%?

Thanks!

I have my interview on Friday as well (1:30pm). Wondering if its worth it to get there early for a class visit and info session in a suit.

Soni i think so - if nothing else, you have one more Chicago experience that you can fluently draw upon in your interview....

This is a truly scary statistic and it does not even count the off-campus interviews.

I received an email invitation to attend some of the events, but I already did it back in April. I basically scheduled my flight right after my interview, and won't be able to attend the events being held. But, hopefully it won't be an issue.

People I spoke to (including someone who used to be a student volunteer on the adcom) have said a little less than 50% in the past years, but that there has been a surge in applications this year, so no one really knows what it will be this year.

That's not bad. If they interviewed the same percentage as last year and the application pools goes up by 20% we are looking at a 40% rate. I will take that.

I'll be there at Harper 8am for early class. 10:30 is info session and 11:45 is tour, both of which I can miss. Wouldn't mind meeting up w/ rhyme, kwam, irish. Got another couple of friends I'm meeting there, both 2nd yrs.
Who else is interviewing that day?

Question to those who have interviewed off campus - do you see any change in your application status once the alumnus files his report? I interviewed over a week ago and am still seeing "Invited to interview".

Thanks!

Interesting news from Rose Martinelli about international student loans at Chicago - seems they're working it out.
