Not yet. I actually submitted my application in R1 but due to unavailability of TOEFL score, the application got pushed to R2. I submitted my TOEFL score on 10th Jan and still waiting for interview invite.

Did anyone ever get meaningful status update when called the school desk? I always heard that Admission committee will contact you if you are selected for interview.

Right now waiting is like driving in the dark tunnel without knowing whether I will hit & die or I will see the light at the other end. Difficult time...........:-)

I understand your pain. The Illinois MBA adcom doesn't have a set date in each of the rounds in which it announces interview invites. Interview invites are random and haphazard. In this regard, the Illinois MBA makes life hard for applicants. I would have loved it like they do at other programs....like you wake up on a specific date and receive your ding or interview invite. It lessens the uncertainty, the anxiety. I commiserate with you guys....

Admitted ! :) R2

Can anyone elaborate on the Placement opportunities for international students at UIUC plz.
I'm a little concerned on the batch size and the recruiting companies that come there for international students in particular.

Thanks in advance

Hi Snigdha,

Congratulations!.. :) Could you please share some of the questions you were asked during the interview and who was your interviewer.

Also were there any case study based questions, as I read somewhere that UIUC Interview process involves a min case study.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,
Vanessa

Hi Vanessa,

Thank you.

Benjamin interviewed me. The Interview questions were pretty standard.
1)Goals
2)why UIUC
3)What I am doing right now. How my skills align to that position
4)Weakness - Strengths
5)roles taken in the team
6) How do I motivate my team
7)Hobbies
8) Anything not covered in resume/application that I would like to highlight.
9)Questions to Adcom

There were no case studies.

All the best.

Regards,
Snigdha

Waitlisted. My interview was good and I was really hoping to get admitted to Illinois MBA.

Illinois MBA is my first preference and I really want to convert myself from waitlisted to Admitted.

The question is to fellow waitlisted friends: What did you do after knowing that you are waitlisted? Any idea about conversion ratio from waitlisted to admitted at Illinois MBA?

Kirti

Hi Kirti,

When did you take your inerview. How long did it take for the adcom to revert back to you with a decision?

Vanessa
