Hi guys, my status says nicht zugelassen, even though i didn't get any email yet. I'm a bit disappointed because given the rules they gave it seemed I reached their 80 points.

Hello MarkDM

My status is also nicht zugelassen and I am very dissapointed about it. It was my No. 1 choice and I thought (and other HSG students told me) that my chances are high, both because of my GMAT, GPA, and etc. I wrote them an email asking to give a clue why the decisionis negative, hope that they will respond. It's also strange that you got a denial too. I wish it was a mistake...

Hey Guys,

I was admitted to the SIM masters program today and started looking for related social network groups. I didn't manage to find any and decided to open a facebook group myself.

If you were accepted, please join "SIM Sankt Gallen Class of 2013" on facebook.
It would be great if we all had a place to talk before we meet in September.
If you know any other students who have been accepted, please invite them to the group, too.

Cheerio
Henrik

PS: The website doesn't let me link the page, if you can't find it, PM me.

MarkDM, I really don't know, since I have not analyzed them

iamhenrik, since you got in, could you share your profile?

Hi!

I got admitted as well: "Zugelassen mit Vorbehalt", but I haven't received any formal email yet.

I have been also admitted to RSM Msc in International Management/CEMS with exchange at Boccconi, so I have to make a difficult decision now!

I hope you will get your results soon as well!

Congrats. Pataiz, what's your secret? How did you get in with a gmat of 690, when others with 700-720 failed?

Thanks! I believe that I was succeeded because of the following factors:
- I had a quite good GPA : 4,2 / 5
- I had lots of extracurricular activities (e.g. president of one of the biggest student organization in Hungary)
- I have been working at Ernst & Young as a consultant in a full-time position for a year now
- I have clear goals and strong motivation

Strange.. My Gmat was 710, GPA in your system would be 4.55. Two years of work experience in the banking industry, first as an assistant, later as a client executive. Graduated at a top university in Lithuania. I also speak German a little bit.. My only weaknesses could be no international experience (though I have travelled a lot), and the fact that my university might not be known to them. I asked them if they could explain their decision, but I think that they might ignore emails like this.

I can't believe my eyes!! Two days ago my status changed to "night zugelassen". Today it changed again... To "zugelassen mit Vorbehalt"!!!!

I do not know wtf is going on, but I like it! Have to wait for the official letter I guess Anyway, it would be interesting to know whether it was a mistake, or they have changed their mind

Hi MarkDM and sk8e,
Congratulations to both of you! Thank you for your sharing, guys!

I applied for the SIM this Feb, although I have been admitted by the UCL and KCL in UK. I strongly believe that the SIM is the most suitable for me. I checked my status, it was nicht zugelassen. So disappointed.

I have GMAT 690/800,GPA 3.59/4.00, exchange experience in the KCL, worked as the chair in the school committee for two years, internship experience in the Bank of China and a domestic fund management corp for the past two summer time, and Goldman Sachs for this upcoming summer.

I sincerely want to study in the SIM with you guys. Really moved by by your experience and perseverance ! Would you like to share with me what helped the most in your pursuit for the SIM? I don't understand why I am not admitted, so I wrote to them several times, but there were no reply at all. Really really sad...

Hi. Sad to hear that. Anyway, quite an impressive profile due to loads of extracurricular activities and superb internships. With a profile like this you even might get into LBS MiM where they value these experiences more than the GMAT. The problem here is that the minimum GMAT for St. Gallen is 680, and your score is low compared to the averages. Last year the average GMAT of SIM students was 710. This year it will be higher I guess as the programme is ranked as No.1 Master's programme by FT. If you really want to study at St. Gallen, you have to retake your GMAT and aim for 710 at least (720-740 would be a great score).

Cheers

Hi, I am wondering who is preparing to apply for the SIM. I am already looking forward to the SIM Master next year, because it is really a great program

Got a 770 in the GMAT and I am now doing the Bachelor on Business Administration in St. Gallen. Fighting to get the 5.5 (At the moment I have it), which would mean that I get directly accepted. Do you know if 5.45 is rounded up to 5.5?

I am both Swiss and Costarican and lived 14 years in Costa Rica and have already a master in chemistry from ETHZ. I was in charge of the quality control in a small industrial company for 9 months and I am now doing an internship in strategic purchase while doing my bachelor thesis on supplier evaluation.

I am glad to hear from my probable future fellow students. If somebody needs to know something about St Gallen, I am glad to help

Hi, I am planning to apply to St.Gallen for matriculation (Fall 2013). I saw that the application window is from February to April. I am from Bulgaria, senior year in university, 700 on the GMAT.

Can you give me some details about the life in St Gallen and more specifically the social life in the university?

Hello everybody,

I know this is the thread for the (MiM). But as i couldn't find a thread for the (MEcon) i thought i might as well chime in here and say hello
(Mods, if this is considered bad etiquette, feel free to move/delete my post).

I apllied for the MEcon in St. Gallen (Spring 2013) and would be very glad to get some input of other students at USG on how my chances are to get into the programme. I got a TOEFL score (iBT) of 107 and a GMAT of 680. How do you think are my odds ? I can't find it any more, but i think i've read somewhere that the MEcon applicants need a minimum score in the GMAT of 680 ?

Last but not least, IF i somehow already got into the programme, this would be a great place to start and find some fellow students in St. Gallen.

Cheers,

Michael.

Hey, I am intending to apply for the 2013 intake as well. I have a GMAT of 710 but my bachelor (business management) is a low second upper class. On their website I have not found much information about bachelor requirements except the fact that it weights 30 per cent.

Does anybody know if I can apply for two masters at the same time? I assume the masters taught in german may be less competitive.

Hello Konditola, thank you very much for your reply. I will apply for the Business Management (MUG) program.
I have asked the student office how bachelor grades and gmat scores are valued and if it is possible to apply
for more than one program. Once I get a reply I am going to post it here.
