Hello Everyone,

I applied in round 2 and submitted my application on March 1. My references were also uploaded by March 5. I haven't heard back about the interview and portal shows decision pending. It shows that we will know the result by April 5th. I'm a bit nervous now. Has anyone got admission without an interview?



During my interview, they stated that they do not extend admissions without an interview. Everyone who's admitted will receive an interview invite and the interview is really just a cut and dry answer prompt of 3-4 questions (lasts about 10-15 minutes) then 5-10 minutes given for you to ask questions.

I would call and ask as most decisions to extend interviews should be made soon.

Thanks for all the info. :)
I emailed them to ask about the status of my application. Hope I get the interview invite soon. Fingers crossed :fingers_crossed:

Usually they respond within a week and schedule interviews. If it's longer than that, pls email or call them.

My interview was short as well but I think it went well! Lasted about 15-20 minutes. I think that's common from what I've been reading.

Hey, does anyone's recommender experienced difficulty in receiving the request of LoR email? My prof. couldn't receive any email from UIUC. I'm waiting for the admission team to get back to me.
One more thing, I'm curious about everyone's work experience. I only have three years FT experience. Not sure if it's gonna affect my chance. I'm a bit anxious.



Reply to my post:

I've done the interview a moment ago. It lasts about 15-20 minutes.
At the end I asked the interviewer How many interview invitations they already send out. She said 95% and select 50% to admit.

btw, my prof. has to submit the letter by this Friday. She's still waiting for the email...it's SO odd.

I think you can write to them directly, maybe the system is blocking it. See if the admission can help you out on receiving directly from your professor? onlinemba@illinois.edu
Good luck to you.

Hi Everyone - I have my iMBA interview tomorrow. Any pointers would be appreciated. Also, is it inappropriate to wear my wired headphones (iPhone type)?

I have not yet, but just got my final letter of recommendation submitted yesterday, so I might be waiting longer. People are still doing their interviews. I would not be surprised if we don't hear back until April 5th or closer to that date.

I wore my work Jabra headphones which are much larger. I don't think it matters. Advice, make sure you have a good internet connection and test everything beforehand! My work's wifi kept going in and out during my interview.

My interview experience was the same as most other's have stated. It lasted about 20 minutes with basically 4 questions with time at the end to explain the program and my questions. I was told I should hear something by April 5th. I am, however, still waiting on one recommendation to be submitted.
