What is usually the turnaround time to hear a feedback from Ivey, after:
(1) you submit application
(2) you had round of interview

Hey Soumya94 !

The response time typically varies from a few hours to three weeks. And it has nothing to do with the level of interest they have in your application.

Good luck !

Hey Guys,

I'm looking at applying in R3. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for the written essays.

Hey workout,

I'm looking for tips with regards to the second essay - 'What is the most important issue that you've ever changed your mind about?'. Especially would love to hear advice on the following -

    - Should we tackle a subject that is related to our career or something personal?
    - Should the outcome of the decision be positive?
    - What aspect of the issue should we focus more on? The issue itself, the decision process, the outcome or the learnings?

Thanks,
Shelley

Hi workout I can provide some input here as well if you don't mind
shelleyjohnsam

There is a lot of room for work accomplishments via the recommendations & CV, so, unless this work story really helps them get to know you on a deep and personal level, it's best to go with a personal example.

Keep in mind they are using the essays to get to know you on a personal level, as your friends would know you. applicants often put on a "strong face" that comes off as phony and arrogant (and utterly forgettable/blending in) so make sure to be sincere, authentic and speak from the heart. That is really the most important thing to remember. That is what will make you memorable and separate you.

the outcome is less important; the question indicates they are trying to understand your values (kind of a what matters most type idea). If you changed your mind there was some value being trampled upon initially and you made a change to create greater inner and outer congruence with your values.

Just make sure to narrate your story, allow them insight into the feelings part not just the action part. do so in STAR format. I would say you can focus on the process or the learnings, but again, speak from the heart (kind of a dance like no one's watching idea here.) They want to see if you are likeable. That means being real.

Thanks a lot, Farrell!

I was, in fact, thinking of writing about a personal decision as I felt it would highlight my personality and values better.

You should be able to add them under the "Education" tab.

It specifies "Starting with the most recent, list all universities and colleges you have attended, including any academic exchange experience. You may also use this section to include any Continuing Education courses."

You can use the "Education (If institution not available above)" section of the Education Tab.

Hope this helps!

Did anybody listen to the online information session this morning? I think it was extremely good she was really giving you the straight facts. I learned a few new things. I believe they will be posting it online so I encourage you to listen to it. There will be an application tips webinar on the 27th I believe.

Hi Everyone

I have a GRE score of 321 (157 V and 164 Q) but i have a bad AWA score of 3(18th percentile). I am an IIT Delhi graduate and have worked in Power generation industry in operations management for about 10 years. Over the years I have enough leadership experience. I have not appeared in TOEFL. I know I am very late for asking this question for this year but Do I stand a chance of an admit? or should I appear in GMAT and improve my score.

Hey searchshishir

You have a strong GRE score and 10 years experience. Your best bet would to submit your resume and speak with an Admission Advisor; they are very good at assessing your fit and making suggestions to strengthen your chances.

Hi searchshishir

Agree with Pakman33 there. While your score and undergrad would give you a good chance of making it, the experience factor may make Ivey feel you are too experienced for their full-time MBA. Check with them on that factor once.

The AWA score will not be a hindrance, and TOEFL is not needed.

You are not too late to apply this year. Apply before September if/once Ivey clears the experience factor.

What details have to be mentioned in the scholarship page apart from the essay. What to explain in the "Explanation of Contribution Difference" & "Supplementary Information"?

Thanks GyanOne for the response.

Could you please elaborate more on why TOEFL is not needed. I couldn't find the TOEFL requirements details on Ivey website.

Hi searchshishir

Please see on this page. As your post-secondary education would be in English, the TOEFL is not needed.

Hey Guys,

I got invited for an interview. Thanks for the help in the forums!

I wanted to check with the people who interviewed how their experience was and if there were any unique questions considering the interview is conducted only by career management personnel.
