I haven't tried to upload my files yet. Curious, why can't you combine all your semester transcripts into one single file? The transcript section, designed to accept on file per school.

This concerns applicants who attended the Infosession conducted in Mumbai on the 25th of September - Any idea what needs to be done to get the application fee waiver?

Good luck on attending a potentially qualifying event! Though I didn't attend, it's best to contact the Admissions office directly on getting the waiver.

I uploaded my transcripts more than 24 hrs back but I am not able to see any file in the application, it just shows when was the last file uploaded.
I'll try to call admissions team on 10/7 or 10/8 to check on this and I'll post the discussion here for everyone.

I attended MBA Fair in San Francisco but KF admissions team team didn't offer any fee waiver. I believe there is no fee waiver for MBA Tours/Fairs.
You can call or email admissions team to check on this. Why don't you email the person you met during the fair?

Thanks, but I couldn't meet them at fairs in my city as they didn't come. I have already emailed them and they said the same thing. I was hoping to meet the school at its own info sessions in my city and get a waiver, but no such luck.

Can anyone please throw some light on 2 month pre mba ASW course that Kenan Flagler offers?

For a full time employed person it's a loss of 2 months paychecks and 2 months of additional living expenses. Also the ASW course will cost anywhere from $3000 to$6000. Overall cost is very high which adds to your full time mba fee & expenses.

Does anyone has idea whether we can do an alternate course (such as online) which will allow us to continue full time job as well?
