Penn State (Smeal) is located in the middle of the state and is about 200 miles from Philadelphia and 190 miles from Washington DC.

Although the entire university has more than 40,000 students, fewer than 100 new students enrol in the FT MBA each year.

I am planning to apply in R3 for specialization in Supply chain!!

What are the chances of making it!!?? I have got a pretty decent GMAT score (660) and decent profile (6 years in SCM implementation). Is it even a good idea to apply in R3!?

Unfortunately I am not a domestic applicant. I am an Indian applicant with 6 years of exp in Oracle apps supply chain implementation. I am not too bothered about scholarship, but I am worried whether I will get an interview or not.

They continue to interview 50-60% of applicants upto last round. the overall conversion rate is 80 admits out of 500 applicants (16%). If you feel you are good enough- go for it !!!
