Submitted!

Recommendations haven't come yet, though. Hoping to get them done this week - hopefully that's not a problem like someone said above.
Good luck, guys'n'gals!


Both my recommendations came in today. A few hours after the deadline had passed.
Hope that this is OK :)

Hi,

One question - Do R2 applicants have to schedule an interview? or is the interview by invitation only?

I had read in the GBS website that after 20th of November, all the interviews will be by invite only, so all the interviews of R2 will by invitation only...

I submitted my app on 20th, but when I log in to OPUS it says Interview in the 'TO Do' list. So i was a bit confused on that.

Thanks! I guess now I can just sit back and pray for an invite :)

As a default status the OPUS shows interview as initiated. Yes I am keeping my fingers crossed. :P

Did anybody from the 1year program complete their interview or get an interview invite?
Especially candidates from India?

I too submitted my application for R2.

Got an email for OPUS today. In the link to get NetID and Password, I have to mention my date of birth & SSN. I am an Indian citizen and do not have an SSN. Any idea how shall I retrieve my ID & Password?

when you reach the get network ID page there is a link in front of SSN row, stating "if you do not have a social security number on file with Emory University, click here."

or check this link out

https://secure.web.emory.edu/it/acm/getpassword4.cfm

type in your details and get the OPUS id and pass word

Here are a few questions, that a person (indian applicant) has asked. Alums and current students and experts please help

Q1. Whats the average scholarship given to International Students ?


Q2. Whats the placement scenario, is it so that its easier for certain concentrations and relatively tough for other concentrations ?


Q3. In market or from recruiters perspective, what are the various strengths that Goizueta project. I mean is there a specific concentration that is more famous among recruiters and they are more interested in recruiting students from that concentration.


Q4. I am having an IT background and would like to join IT Company after my MBA as Business Analyst. What are the prospects of IT companies. As I saw, Accenture is one of the companies which recruit as well as provide internship. Which are the other companies, one with similar aspirations can target.

(I am not from IT back ground, this question is from the original person)


Q5. How much time does it take to repay the loan - average/general idea will be great!


Q6. Whats the range of monthly expenditure of living in Atlanta and pursuing MBA ? If you can provide breakup - Rent, Travelling, Food/Groceries, other amenities, it will be really helpful.


Q7. What are the usual problems which Indian students face over there, during placements ?


Q8. How would you rate Career Services of Goizueta ? Do they take special measures for International Students ?


Q9. What were the qualities you looked for in Goizueta MBA ?


Q10. How is the faculty and staff, I mean as you might have experienced economics, organizational behavior and other such subjects might be new, so how helpful they are and how much is the environment friendly in learning especially from International students perspective ?

Seems OPUS can't handle the network load. Can't go past the student center to look at the to do list details.

Not a student or alumn, but I might be able to help with the q's above

Q1
I've been in the room with adcom and heard their answer to "avg scholarship money" several times, and it's always the same: DEPENDS/RANGES. Paraphrasing: "it ranges, it goes from zero $ to full rides." They just encourage you to apply in the round that automatically considers you for scholarships

Q5
take Forbes' word for this answer
#24 - Goizueta - 3.7 year payback period
http://www.forbes.com/business-schools/ ... l%20states

Q6
I'm from ATL and have lived in th northeast, and I can safely safe GA/Atlanta is one of the cheapest major US cities to live at. Rent close to Emory for a single bedroom should be between $,1000-1,300. A two bedroom, if you get a roommate, might be around $1,300/2 = $750. I won't get into groceries and such but hopefully that gives you and idea.

Hope this helps

I am an Indian applicant for Round2, and submitted my application just in the nick of time. However, I didn't received any communication regarding the OPUS, when did you received yours and is it normal? I am seriously worried over this right now

No need to worry. You'll get the mail asking you to go to the links and obtain your id. Later, give 5 days for the to do list to be updated.

if by anyone you are referring to the applicants, then yes.
once you submit the application, you get a mail within 48 hours (2 business days), that your application material has been received and that you may check the to do list in opus. You need to generate the opus id and password, by tying you DOB and email (indians). people with SSN can generate the same using it.
