nidoblue tell me about it ... I’m so stressed it’s ridiculous ... I think it went ok but so many waitlisted peeps and dingers would say the same so I have no clue.

How did u feel after the interview.

Wishing us the best !

Hal90 Sorry for the late reply! I just signed up for this website and apparently I don't get notifications, oops.

I feel like it went well. So I know exactly what you're saying. I had some good feedback, and my interviewer was a lovely person so here is to hoping.

I keep scrolling through previous years and posts and the pressure is mounting... do you have anything in your application that you think helps you stand out? Good luck to you too!

nidoblue honestly that’s a tough question because I feel like everyone’s got something in their favor.

My interviewer did ask me a funky question “what do you think is the weakest / strongest part of your application” she first asked weakest then strongest.

Plus I live in Canada and messed up the central time zone thing so I wasn’t even aware I was supposed to be in the interview until I got her email asking if I can still make it.

I apologized in writing and to her - she was very graceful and seemed genuinely excited about the interview went but I honestly don’t know ... I don’t feel overly confident.

No worries ... we really all busy at work ... I’m glued to my phone cos notifications will be going out soon lol.

Hal90 Ya gotta be confident!

I personally don't think it would be the end of your application just because you made a mistake with the timing. I saw in a previous post somewhere (after scouring the internet for days) that the interviewers rate you on 1-4 (no admit-absolutely admit) so it's a bit of a sliding scale with wiggle room if that's true. On the other hand, my interviewer wrote diligent notes in little boxes. I'm not sure if that means the 1-4 scale is not correct or if it's just additional information to give the admissions team...

Congrats on Marshall, anulfc! Is their deposit deadline today as well? I don't think I see it publicized on the website.

Does anyone have any insight into scholarships for McCombs? If we were offered money elsewhere is this something to bring to the adcom team?

They'll call admits throughout the decision day and the portal will update sometime in the afternoon (ding or admit)

After R2, McCombs offered a webinar for waitlisted candidates that went through the process and had tips for improving your candidacy. I am sure there will be a similar webinar for the R3 candidates.

Best of luck!

Exclusive Interview with McCombs MBA Admissions Committee | McCombs Tech Focus, Micros Consulting projects and More

GyanOne: Tell us about the Fellows programs, a unique aspect of the McCombs MBA

Rodrigo: The Fellows program start off with a lot of 101 advising to make sure that students have the background in place. There are multiple checkpoints through the two years in which we ensure that the Fellows are making progress. At the end of the development plan, we have a capstone to bring the concepts and cohorts together. We see Fellows programs as a purposeful way to put together development opportunities at McCombs.
