Hey!

It took them around 10 days, but I told them that I already had another offer of admission at that time hence they promised to give me a decision before that date (that was march 10th and they admitted me on march 8th). Got a Skype call, the official e-mail came two days later. However, I think normally they take 14 days minimum (that's what my interviewer told me)

Regards

Thanks! So you got a Skype call informing you that you are admitted? The AdCom told me that it usually takes 14 days too. But I have seen instances of students getting accepted much sooner. I'll just wait for some news.

yup, but I think it was courtesy since I needed a quick decision. I was called by Darren Dahl and he explained that he'd like to inform me because he wasn't sure when the email gets out (since I had a deadline for another school). Normally I guess they just send you the email !
you can also check your online application, the status there is updatet when you get admission. godd luck!

Thanks! I came across a post of yours where you had mentioned that you're leaning towards Owen. Have you decided yet? What are the factors that you have considered against Vancouver? I hope you don't mind me asking you these questions. :)

Hey sure no problem! Nothing decided yet (I am still waiting for georgetown to publish) but I think it will be Owen. I'd also say it is not AGAINST Vancouver/Sauder but rather FOR Owen. The reasons are mainly the ranking & statistics of the school and of course the great career management center there. Everything else (Curicculum, extracuriccular activities) are imho on the same level. What is a bit of a gamble is the job market (as an international): from what I read it may be hard(er) to get jobs in the US if you study in Canada, however, Canada grants you 2 years Visa after graduation. But what of that if I leave Canada and work in Japan (just an example) --> so not really that heavy weighted point.
Additionally, my girlfirend would like to join me and as far as I can tell there is a better job market for here in Nashville than in Vancouver (in Vancouver you find tons of IT jobs though).

So let me sum this up: Reputation / Post-MBA Salary Owen, City: Sauder, Curriculum / Activities : Even, Career Center: Owen

SO that would be 3:2 for Owen from my point of view and if I add my GF it would be Owen (since I read that Canada's visas aren't much easier to get than US)

Maybe this will help you too!

Thanks for all the input! :) My wife and I are both in IT (but I am looking at making a career change post-MBA). Vancouver seems like a good fit for us. I hope that I get an admit into Sauder.
Good luck to you!

About 20days ago, and I got accepted around the 16th day. I am waiting for the admit package to see whether I get some scholarship.
