I chatted with Julie from the adcom team and she mentioned that Simon has received A LOT of applications this year, which is why everything is taking time. But I’m sure because of their small class-size they must have already filled everyone up. Wondering what they are going to do for R4 and R5 candidates.

And especially for over-represented community - it honestly looks bleak

Hi all! I saw some frustration in here and thought I'd try to tell you some stuff I've heard from current/admitted students, as well as learning from getting admitted. I applied Jan 5, got interviewed Jan 14, got accepted (100% tuition) Jan 21. I had lots of connections with students already admitted/graduated from Simon so they helped me a lot. keep in mind it's all through the grapevine so I could be wrong!

Simon's brand is being the #1 diverse top 50 MBA program so they put heavy emphasis on diversity. It's not just the diversity of the students, but ALSO how much diversity experience they have. I know a lot of you are from India, but you also should try to emphasize your experience of learning about/experiencing/promoting diversity different than yours. Have you led or participated in diversity-based clubs/organizations that are non-Indian (like French clubs, Latin American clubs, African clubs, LGBTQ+, charity/volunteering for low-income people, etc)?

B school applications are all about making yourself sound more unique than your peers. If you're a male from India, how can you distinguish yourself diversity/experience-wise from all the other male Indian applicants? You are not competing against EVERYONE applying, you are competing against other people with similar backgrounds as you, so making yourself the most unique as possible gives you a better chance at admission. This is true at all schools. Every school "allocates" spaces for people with different backgrounds (tech, education, non-profit, finance, etc) so just because you're not from a common background doesn't mean you can't get in. You just have to show that you are a marketable candidate that will bring value to the school, and, ultimately, be able to get a job once you graduate. If they don't see how you plan on using b school to get a job afterwards, then that's a ding.

Also, they truly did receive a LOT more applications this year. the fact is, with the pandemic, ALL MBA schools have received a HUGE rise in applicants. Due to lots of people losing jobs, changing jobs, etc, many people are looking for career changes. It will take more time this year for all schools than last year.

Hope this helps!

I absolutely concur with the absolve message. Simon has been extremely selective this time. I got an interview invite on March 3rd. I am from India with ~4 years of international work experience with good score and top GPA.

Congrats, I was interviewed end of Feb and I received an email that my test waiver was approved o. The first of March. I haven't heard from the Adcom since then. Should I loose hope?

Nyarie, Thank you. As the school is rolling out acceptances on a rolling basis, I won’t lose hope but, as per my discussions with AdCom, it was really really competitive this time.
