Thanks for the quick reply Pranav2570,

I submitted my application on 5 Jan. Can you let me know when you submitted your app.

Also, I got an email saying that all the required docs are submitted. Did you get something like that. Just wanted to assess their process. :shock:

Best Regards,
Saran[/quote]

I submitted my application on the 15th of December. Strangely I thought that was the deadline for round 3. Must have seen something wrong. Also I got a similar email saying that documents have been submitted.

Hi All,

I have received admit from Simon full time MBA class of 2016 with 50 % scholarship.
Its quite exciting but I am evaluating other options also at this time.
I have other offer from Mason School of Business at the College of William and Mary with 100 % scholarship.
Considering I wish to pursue MBA finance and want to work in some good bank in credit vertical
Request your views regarding
Reputation of both schools
Job/internship opportunities in Banks
Long term benefits of being Simon MBA over being Mason MBA.

Thanks in advance

Hey bud - were you interviewed via Skype or in person ? I've received a f2f interview invite as Simon Admissions team is on a India tour and are taking some interviews.

I had 6 yrs of experience at the time of interview.. and will have 7 yrs of work-ex by Jan 2015, if I decide to matriculate to this program. Either way, I have responded with an affirmative that I will consider this option. They had mentioned in their email that the admissions decision will be available in a week, if I decided to take this route. So apparently the waiting game for me is not over yet.

Cheers,

I got the same email saying that places are filled and the accelerated program is the only option for me right now. I will have 4.5 years of experience by Sep. Given that I value the internship opportunity and admit from Olin, I am seriously considering withdrawing my application... Not sure how a Simon MBA will weigh against Olin's - am an international aiming for consulting.
