Nice.. Congratulations.. That's what I received in 2004. Its good to make some $$ while studying for free :).

I can tell you that WP Carey's placement is quite good. They are the #1 school in Az, so all the top companies come for recruitment there. This is one thing I realized after choosing Babson over WP Carey (I had the full fellowship from Babson as well). Since Babson is in Boston, close to MIT, Harvard, Yale, BU, BC, and comparable or better ranked schools, I had to compete for jobs with graduates from these colleges, whereas ASU graduates had the advantage of graduating from the #1 school in the state. Most of the graduating class of 2006 had jobs by 2005 December (The job market was really booming then)

You are in an excellent position. Choose wisely.

A very good point. Thanks for the help.

Hello and congratulations. I am totally confused by this. Can someone help me clear the process in admissions.

So, apparently when kinjiGC applied to WPCarey, the school waitlisted him/her. I interpret this as a signal that he/she just about failed to make the cut. Is my understanding correct?

Subsequently, not only did kinjiGC "make the cut", he/she was actually flooded with goodies, by the school. I interpret this as a signal that the school desperately wanted kinjiGC to join WPCarey. Is my understanding correct?

If yes, then this is not just adding up. First the school almost does not want you, and then the same school desperately wants you :roll:

I have yet to appear in GMAT, but reading these mails gives me the impression that GMAT is not even half the journey travelled :(

Dear Suryakumar,

I understand the confusion. I was too so I spoke to Kinjal. The initial feedback that he received from WP Carey was that they needed more time to decide on his candidacy. So he was not rejected or wait-listed, just told that the decision on his candidacy has been deferred. My guess is that the folks at WP Carey wanted to give him a very strong offer - the best they could (it actually is a great offer; in addition to a full tuition wavier, he will make some money too).

Secondly, there is a very strong correlation between your GMAT score and probability of getting a scholarship. I personally had the same offer from W.P. Carey as well as a full tuition waiver from Babson.

I hope this helps.

-Rajat

Thanks for looking into this and replying. It now makes much sense.

The entire thing about first being "waitlisted" and then suddenly opening the floodgates of goodies was just making me totally confused:(.

Don't worry about those. There are pretty interesting decisions which defies logic. So just concentrate on GMAT, your profile and your app. Rest is there decision.

All the best.

Congratulations KD..All the best for the future.. Were you able to negotiate any scholarships there? I am sure it must have been a tough decision.


Tepper has rejected others scholarship increase requests and I didn't try any further. There are some admits who are not able to join Tepper because of this issue.

Hi KinjiGC

1. Didn't you use Manhattan SC book at all?!

2. you have said that you practiced with many many GMATPrep questions. However, didn't this have any effect on your scores in GMATPrep mock tests? Since you practiced with so many GMATprep questions, then it might be the case that you encountered some of them on mock tests with GMATprep.
I am thinking that whether it is a good strategy to work with GMATprep questions before taking GMATprep exams: if one solves too many of them, he/she might see some of them when practicing with GMATPrep software.

Thanks,

Hey there !

Congrats on the great score.

Sadly your story is better than mine.

I gave my exam on the May 2 2015 and got a 750. Imagine my joy.

But I got a email on June 3 , 2015 saying that my scores were all cancelled due some testing irregularities and I have to give it again.

Kill me right ?

If you can get it once, you can get it twice. I guess you have an extra incentive to better your score then. All the best. Let me know how it went.

ISB application feedback !!

You were not able to convey your strengths during the interview.

Awesome . It is quite objective and sure I will definitely work on this.

Its better that ISB shouldn't provide any feedback and should discontinue.

I am amazed at your achievement(s) !! :) Congratulations...
I am in a similar situation as you.. 9 years work-ex in software industry.
