Hello everyone,

I have applied for Gies iMBA on April 21st. My application still is in "Awaiting Decision" status. Not going to lie that it has me a little worried but staying hopeful!

I do how ever have a question for you all, how common is the invitation for the interview? Did anyone get accepted into the program here without having to interview? I am asking mostly because the website for the program really is down playing the interview like it is a rare occurrence.

Thank you!


Pretty sure you need to interview to get in.

Thank you for the swift response!

If what you have stated is true then the program might consider changing the below taken from their FAQ:

10. Do I need to complete an interview?
The iMBA committee may choose to interview select candidates over video conference.

Thank you! Still haven't received anything, I was told that it takes about 3-4 weeks for the final decision. I will reach out to the program to see if I can get an update on my application!

Hi,

As this is a non-traditional MBA program, they care about your commitment and motivation. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about the school or program.

I submitted my application during the second round but my recommendation letters were not complete until the end of April-so frustrating! I still have not heard anything regarding an interview and was wondering for those that applied in R2 and R3 what your timeline is looking like?

I submitted my application on May-03 and received the Interview email on May-07. All of my recommendation letters were complete at the time of submitting my application. Not sure if that plays a role in scheduling the Interview. You can reach out to the admissions office during the posted hours. They are quite friendly in responding to the queries.
