Hi Geetika,
Good to hear from you.
Are there any specific questions you have about the essays? From a generic standpoint, here are some pointers

1) essay 1: Show how you went through the process of idea generation and then translated those ideas into action points. It would be great to point out to the challenges you faced during the process and how you overcame them. Stick to active voice and "show" the action rather than just tell what you think was the result.

2) essay 2: Go over the "Application Tips" section on the application requirements page. You can talk about the elements of the program that appeal to you the most and also connect your experience with what you intend to do post-graduation and how MSCM program can help you get there.

And do get your essays reviewed at least a couple of times before posting. Hope this was helpful and wishing you the very best with your application process.

Do let us know if you have any more questions.

Go Blue!!

Hi there,

Thank you so much for creating this forum and providing us a great chance to communicate with current students!

I have been working as a staff accountant/financial analyst for 2 years in a shipping company in the US after earned my first Master's degree in Accounting with 3.88 GPA. I gain a strong interest in supply chain management because my current tasks, especially budget preparation, require me frequent collaborate with our operations team. I am super excited when I came across this program and fascinated by how practical this program is.

I've contacted with Katy and several current students, but I still have several questions after I submitted my application.
1. Do you have any ideas about the application timeline? I have already submitted my application by Oct.15 which meet the first round deadline. I completed my application by Nov.4 after submitting supplemental documents that required by the application office. I didn't hear back from UMICH since then. I think my GMAT score and my work experiences are definitely not my strengths, so I probably will be waitlisted or rejected (Hope not!!!!!!). Do you have any insights about if anyone has already been admitted or get interviews?

2. Will the waitlisted applicants get interviews?

3. Can I update my GMAT score after my application?

Thank you so much for your help:) It's really a great tradition to keep helping new applicants!

Best,
Rang

Hi Rang,

Coming from Accounting background with exposure and understanding of operations, I believe you would definitely add to the diversity of the class.

Since you have submitted the application late in the first round, I wouldn't suggest losing hopes yet. Unfortunately, we don't have the visibility into candidate specific decisions that the school makes. So, can't share any information on that front.

Updating a GMAT score or any other information which you think would add strength to the profile would definitely help. Hope this helps!!

Go Blue!!
