sorry man, that sucks. but dont lose faith yet.

on the side, I applied CMU Rd 2 and got an email from a person in the admissions office that my application is not complete (not an automatic system email, etc). Email also said that final decisions will be made March 12. What does this mean?? No interview for me (thats what im smelling).
Did anyone else get this kinda correspondence?

willget, don't loose heart...we all know this is such a subjective process. I'm sure something will come through.

gmatmba, if it was a person that sent it to you, maybe you could reply to them asking for specifics. You have time to adjust anything if you have to.

R1 applicant here and you will get that mail as a confirmation of your application being complete. I completed my interview prior to submitting my apps so i received the mail in 4 days of submitting my app. Guess you will've your interview but you will be intimated of that later. I'm not sure whether Tepper admits people without interviews!!

thanks guys for your optimisim and keeping me going here..

CMU was a msc finance application that i submitted way back in october.

I think its ok, because maybe it wa smy first app and now that I don't want to go to msc finance, I have not felt too bad yet..

But.... they dont give feedback till Aug.. which really sucks.. I dont want to wait till then, because I am thinking of making one more application - probably to Oxford or something...
I would really like to get some good feedback..

Probably they were very confident that u would get admission in a top college and must have dinged u for yield reasons. I have heard that CMU is paranoid that people tend to use it as a safety

Even, i've heard that Tepper thinks like that and proof of it is the fact that a number of applicants ( especially from india) were placed on the waitlist in R1. ( these are the kinda ppl/profiles who would have a got an admit last year!!) As the mbapodcaster website says, Tepper is kinda ' Show me that you like me ' school!! So you'll've to go outta of your way to show commitment to them. That said, I'm not sure whether doing so would have 'd an impact on your decision, specially when you've applied for MSCF.

compare that to MIT

"P.S. Unfortunately we cannot conduct post-evaluative interviews with candidates we could not admit. As you can imagine, with over 3,000 applicants that procedure would consume almost the full-time attention of two employees. We are simply not staffed to be able to provide that service.
"

some c%^p huh!

On second note...i am interviewing with Tepper next tuesday on campus...any tips?

did you interview on campus?

I would get their early and talk to some students. For the most part students at CMU are very friendly and willing to help out.

thanx for the pointer....i actually had an option of scheduling the interview either in the morning or in the afternoon...i chose the latter for the same reason...a campus tour and class room experience will give me some more ammo for the interview...

cheers!
