So, I mailed Simon today asking whether I can still expect an interview and whether there's a reason why my app is still under review since past 1 month. This is the reply I got:-

"Still sending invitations".....Should I take it positively or negatively? I feel demotivated.

It could go either way. Like I mentioned, I received an interview invitation on the day before the decisions were due.

If people who have been invited can come forward, it will be great


I am a current student here at Simon. I had put in my application last year in mid Feb 2014. And i got an interview invite in April 2014. They may take their time

hi friend
does Simon provide any scholarship covering living expense for female international applicants?
Simon Leadership Fellowships
MBA candidates with superior academic and professional credentials may be eligible for one of our full-tuition Simon Leadership Fellowships. Typically awarded during Scholarship Weekend, the Fellowships also include stipends for partial living expenses, up to $10,000 per year. In addition, Simon Fellows benefit from priority access to on- and off-campus receptions, speaker series, and premier networking opportunities.
is that for only usa candidates or also international candidates?
Thank you
T

Simon does provide Leadership Fellows to a batch of students ( the top 4-5% of a matriculating cohort of students). Of these, only one student will get a 100% tuition scholarship and $10,000 is paid towards miscellaneous expenses. The remaining fellows get some tuition scholarship plus all fellows get paid a stipend of upto $10000 a year.
For the current, 2015 MBA batch of students graduating this year, the school did a pretty good job at selecting fellows. The Fellows included a diverse group of students and are a mix from all countries - including America, Jamaica, India and China. But a majority of them are Americans

But, I must say, they've not been able to choose the right deserving candidates to receive Fellows in the 2016 MBA batch of students. In fact, they've got it all wrong. This probably may have something to do with the change of leadership at the Dean's level. But i'm not sure of their current methodology.

Can somebody share their interview experience.

I interviewed last month, and was accepted about a month ago. Questions were very straightforward. Why MBA? Why Simon? Short and long term goals? No curve balls, very conversational….was actually a very enjoyable conversation. Good luck with your interview.

Is anyone still waiting for an interview invitation for R3? Its kinda bothering me now.

I called them yesterday and the person who attended the call was very vague. She said that they are still taking applicants for fall 2015 and I can expect an interview till the decision date.

Hi everyone,

I scheduled an interview for the MS in Business Analytics March 30th. I'm pretty nervous right now. I want to ask what the interview is like? Is it conversational? and Do I HAVE to wear a full fledge business suit for the intervew? I'm just more comfortable in shirt and jeans than in a suit?

I'm a 700 Gmat student from South America with two bachelor's degrees and 4 years of work experience + 1.5 years of army service.
I received an invitation from Simon to a pre-admission interview, which I did.
I was told students with similar profile to mine usually receive scholarships ranging from 20k to 30k USD a year
I applied on March 14th and was interviewed on the 19th, and now I'm waiting for an answer.

Should I be nervous?
