Congrats Bigblue! This gives others hope that they are starting to send out invites again and that, unfortunately for your sanity, they took so long to send it but you still got the invite!

Just got the phone call from Amanda Carlson! I'm in! She took me totally off guard by calling at 7:15 PM (EST) - we're in the midst of hurricane devastation here on the East Coast so I was thinking it was the power company...great surprise!

My profile:
White male
26 years old
USA
740 (97% verbal, 73% quant --> shows that 80/80 is certainly not a requirement)
4 years of WE in engineering
Intended concentration: Real Estate

My timeline:
Applied ED 9/17
Interview invite 10/1
Interview/feedback submitted 10/13
Admitted 11/1 (longer delay than many posters here have been reporting)

Some advice (application preparation aside) for those of you who have not yet finished you application or who have not yet received a decision:

If you can, make a very pronounced effort to visit campus! I attended an MBA information session and the Real Estate Spotlight event. I'm not sure if everyone's aware of this, but the Admissions Office maintains an open-door environment, even on weekends. I stopped in on a Saturday with my story and some pointed questions ready, and I ended up having a very relaxed but very productive 20-minute conversation with one of the primary adcoms. I gambled on this, but I knew that if the meeting went well it would pay dividends. Sure enough, during my phone call Amanda told me that this informal meeting really made an impression with the adcom member I spoke to. She mentioned some other details (date of my wedding, etc.) that made it clear that the adcom had taken notes as soon as I left the Admissions Office that day (I exchanged business cards when I left).

To those of you still waiting: keep hope alive! I'll be happy to give more advice or answer more questions!

Thanks for sharing this!

My interview feedback was submitted this Monday, and I have been expecting "the call" by early next week.. but it seems the process is getting delayed than many posters here have been reporting previously......

Do you think there's any way for me to raise the chance?

Were there any posts by people that interviewed but got dinged? How long have those people had to wait if that was the ultimate case?

On a side note, have any of the other admitted students tried accessing the admitted students website? I'm getting a Not Authorized error even though the last status update I got said to log into the page for periodic updates.

I reached tech support few weeks ago we said that the site is not ready yet. When it is ready we all will get notifications. Any idea when we get a package from the school with all forms included?

I'd be interested to hear about dinged with interview situations/timeline as well...If there's a 50% conversion rate of interviews into acceptances, I find it hard to believe the other 50% all had poor interviews

Application Submitted: 10/6
Interview Invite: 11/18
Interview Feedback: 12/8
Waitlisted: 12/15
Dinged: 1/26

So the timeline for a response is similar - good to know. How did you profile change between last year and this year?

For the most part, went from being a consultant like any other at a large strategy house to a boutique firm where I was running my account and making my own sales.

Congrats and Thanks for the advice! I was debating applying or visiting 3 weeks from now and then applying. I might hang back and visit first and then apply thereafter.

I submitted my ED application on 3rd October but haven't heard from the adcom yet. Feeling very anxious. Is anyone else on the same boat as me?
