Hey Prof,

I have a question on housing at Simon. How does on campus housing compare to off campus at Simon. Which one would you suggest to a prospective student and what are the reasons in terms of cost, comfort, accessibility to campus and facilities etc.?

Thanks

Good question, Arory - let me ask a few of the current students, and I'll have an answer in a couple of days.

A couple of interesting content pieces about Simon:

- Also, there is going to be a Scholarship Weekend competition for admitted fulltime MBAs, with an opportunity for full-tuition scholarships and $10K living stipend, check http://www.simon.rochester.edu/programs/full-time-mba/tuition-financial-aid/scholarship-weekend/index.aspx.

My profile is below: Female GMAT - 610 Undergrad GPA - 3.4, Grad GPA - 3.8 Education in Biomedical Engineering Currently working in research industry - 2.5 years of work experience Have invented a technology and developed 5 research products. Currently marketing and earning royalties on those products aside from working full-time Want to focus on marketing and entrepreneurship Strong essays with clear description of why b-school, why marketing, and why now Justification for a low GMAT score Solid community service Foreign work experience and well-traveled in general Interview My interview was with an Adcom member. It was very conversational and very relaxing. I was asked a lot of the application essay questions as well as why Simon is the best fit for me. In addition, I was asked for examples where I had demonstrated leadership skills and team work. Strengths and weaknesses were asked. Finally, there was a question about if you get accepted at every school you have applied; which one would you choose and why (have a good answer for this one). I also received 40k in scholarship and I am hoping to get more$ by participating in Case Competitions during the scholarship weekend.

Hope this helps!

Good Luck to all of you!

Arory,
Ask the school directly, or if possible, for the contact of a current student so you can probably get better info than from me. Also, you could ask on twitter @simonschool https://twitter.com/SimonSchool, if you have a twitter account.

Just had my interview. It was with a skype interview with an adcom member that is also current PT MBA student. I was very nervous but it was a very nice conversation with no surprises.

Walked her through my resume. Had questions regarding some specific points in the resume - business related and community activity related. Talked about what I want to get from MBA program. And asked her several questions regarding career center and her experience in school.

Overall, I think it went pretty well.
