All you amazing people. Congratulations once again!!!!

Now that We have this thread in place.
Can I know about the people who will be matriculating from Tepper.
If not, what other schools do you have in?
Also, we can organize some meet up if people live in vicinity of one another.

Happy New Year everyone!

Was accepted to Tepper with \$20k, but not 100% sure if I'm gonna go.

I also have an admit to Johnson which was one of my top choices...

You joined GMAT Club on my birthday

All the best!!!

So any ideas whether we will be notified when our Re Vera stuff is completed? I received an email from Paypal to confirm that my payment was received, but nothing from Re Vera. Thoughts?

From what I have read on various forums, its better that they do not come back to us.
I do not think we receive a mail on the completion.

When is the last date to start the Re Vera process?

According to the Countdown website, you have until the deposit deadline to submit the Re Vera request.

"Remember the deadline to initiate your verification with Re Vera Services is the same date as the deadline for your first deposit as detailed in your acceptance letter."

My biased opinion:
If you're interested in consulting or tech, choose Tepper.
If you're interested in finance (IB) or healthcare, choose Johnson.
(obviously there are other factors to consider...)

For what it's worth, I submitted my Re Vera payment last year in May and was not completed until July. They sure take their time! Don't expect news from them for awhile...

Congrats on the admits. Tough choice. Both are great schools. All the best.

Quick update on the Re Vera stuff- I received an email from Re Vera stating that they had received everything they needed and planned to begin the background check shortly. This email came about 2.5 weeks after I submitted my materials (though the Christmas holiday no doubt had an impact on that). They said they would reach out if they need anything else from me.

Just wanted to give a heads up so you all know what to expect.

Thanks! And good luck to you!

Hahaha, I appreciate your biased opinion. I am a bit biased myself, but Tepper definitely hasn't made it any easier for me. The schools are very close in many dimensions and as an engineer I have a lot of respect for CMU in general. But in the end I think I'll be heading to Johnson...

Has anyone here already matriculated or plans to? I'm trying to decide between Tepper, Stern, and Anderson. I'd love to hear what your reasons were for choosing Tepper. Thanks!

I would say it depends on what your post-MBA goals are. For example, if you want to be in NYC and pursue IB, then choose Stern. If you want to be in California/tech, choose Anderson.

Has anyone put on hold the employment verification?
I have yet not told my current employer.
Also, what else do we need to submit apart from the 85\$ fees to Re Vera?

One more questions. I have gone through the Countdown web site and have not found any to do things apart from Re Vera.
Is there anything else we need to do? Cross checking this, so that I do not miss something.

I can't answer the employer hold- my job knows I'm leaving - but I can weigh in on everything else. I think you also need to send a copy of your official transcript along with completing the Re Vera stuff. I also completed my FAFSA, though I think I am pretty early on that.

The Countdown website will update as we get closer to the August start date. My understanding is that we will see more entries on the "To Do List" in March. I know there will also be a lot to do for the COC (updating resume, etc.) before showing up for Basecamp. For now though, you are in good shape with your Re Vera submission.

Just got an email saying that my Credential Verification had been completed. No one contacted me throughout the verification process until now (which I assume is a good thing).

Deposit is in and the Re Vera check is done - I guess that makes it official! See you all in Pittsburgh.

I was just notified by James Frick in admissions that I have been offered admissions into Tepper's 2017 class. WOO!

Very excited at the prospect of joining you fine people.

No official date as far as I know...

But, the best I have been able to estimate is 7/27/2015. From the 2013 calendar below, base camp lasts 4 weeks, immediately preceding the start of the semester, though the first week is primarily PC/MAC setup. So, the good stuff doesn't start until the Friday of that first week (7/31/2015 ?).

We should know for sure once Welcome Packets are sent out next week.
