Hello everybody,

I hope you are doing well. I interviewed with the career services manager and the manager of the MBA program on the 10th. If you do one thing, I would recommend knowing your work history back and forth and being able to talk about your responsibilities, involvement in teams, and whatever leadership responsibilities you may have had.

Think about what makes you a unique candidate, and what you can add to the program. Other than saying they liked my essay and one of the letters of recommendation, we did not discuss them at all. I had a ton of questions ready, and for me the interview was very conversational. It was more of a back-and-forth than anything. All in all, the staff at the MBA office was ultra professional, genuine, and nice.


Thats awesome and thanks for the in-depth breakdown of your experience. Did you get a chance to participate in any type of tour or sit in on a class while you were there?

Ok, I applied on October 12th I think so I might have gotten an invite already because of the application submission date being a few days earlier before the final deadline rush. Mine was in email format and seemed extremely informal so I was kinda hesitant to call it an interview invite lol. I'm assuming because of the invites being sent at different times that the entire process is on a rolling basis after submission so sit tight, I'm sure you'll get your invite any day now.

I do not mind one bit and I'll be as candid as I know how. I'm currently a Logistics Officer in the U.S. Army coming up on 4 years experience. Served in multiple leadership positions leading a total of just over 200 Soldiers in my short career. My career goal is an operations/supply chain management role in a company like Delta, J&J or P&G. My academics are my weak point. BA in International Affairs from an "ok" state school with just over a 3.1 GPA. Quant background is basically non-existent and my GMAT score reflects that. In my application I relied HEAVILY on my leadership experience building teams and operating in a high stress environment.

I also utilized the optional essays to own my academic weaknesses (told the truth about just being flat out lazy and immature as an undergrad) and putting it plainly that I fully expect to struggle in the quant heavy courses but I would be utilizing the coming months to take stats and calculus refresher courses to try to offset my weak quant background. Obviously I don't know much about why I got an invite, but I'd be willing to bet it wasn't my academics lol.

Don't sell yourself short. Your leadership experience is quite impressive. Good luck for the interview. I just hope they are sending out more invites. They are, aren't they?

Submitted mine for R1. Got an email with an interview invitation. Anyone else get an invite yet? Wasn't sure if it was the official nod by the way the email was worded at first.


Hey! Congratulations for the invite. I too got a mail for the interview a few days back. I have scheduled it on 11th Nov. Fingers crossed!

Yeah we walked around the building, but it was fall break so unfortunately there weren't any classes to see. Despite how much hype surrounds Tech Square, we were not given access. I also saw you mentioned hitting the books to prepare for B School. Have you considered Coursera? There are tons of free business school courses by programs like Ross, IESE, and Wharton, if you're interested.

I'd be willing to bet they are still in the process of sending out invites. I wouldn't stress it. The wait sucks. There's no way around it just try to stay busy in the mean time and force yourself not to check the application 10 times a day like I was doing lol.

Hm, that's weird. That's like one of their huge selling points for the entire program. I actually enrolled in the Financial Accounting course put on by Wharton through coursera. I'm gonna try to knock out a few of the basic stats or calc courses and possibly some advanced excel if I have the time (or mental endurance) to.

How was the Scheller campus? I hate to admit this but I JUST found out that it was in the middle of midtown and not on main campus which is pretty cool. Been to Atlanta a few times and midtown is a great time.

Aside from the business building, I didn't see campus. We were unfortunately on a tight schedule, and we chose to check out the surrounding area instead of the GT campus.

Oh well, I'm sure you'll get to see plenty of it here soon. Did they say anything about a rolling basis for final decisions? Or does everyone who applied R1 get notified on the same day?

My impression was that I should expect to wait until December before hearing anything. They said decisions go out on December 15, but that I might receive mine a little bit earlier since I was through the process by Oct. 10th. Still no word from them, yet.

They told me they would release decisions on December 15th

Got done with the interview today. It was very conversational. Few regular questions. Why MBA? Why now? Why Scheller? Strengths? Then both of my interviewers asked questions from my resume. Fingers crossed now. I hope I get an admit.
