I had a first interview with head of finance. Got another call for second interview with Director of Career Management. Have heard that usually admissions are granted after just one interview. What do you think the second interview with Career Management folks mean ??

    Can you please let me know whether this WES evaluation is mandatory or not? Is there any possibility of a waiver in this regard? I am asking this because I do not think I would be able to get this evaluation done by 15th January.
    Thanks Ronnie.
    There are some students in the class with less work expereince ie <2.
    They look at overall maturity of the candidate once they do well on fixed
    criteria like GMAT,GPA etc.

    maturity,go ahead ...
    First of all i would like to thank you for doing an amazing job.

    Thanks for starting this thread.
    I have a couple of questions :
    "As per Wall Street Journal its ranked no.1 amongst regional schools."
    a) What is a regional school ?
    b) how do you compare BYU with other top schools like Harvard, Duke etc.
    One of the past students from India, Akshay created a blog ,which answered many of the commonly asked questions beautifully.
    Feel free to ask me any further questions any of you might face after going through the blog.Here it is :

    Hi Bala,
    Thanks for your email.
    My profile is above the averages , you see for BYU on the website.
    I will not be comfortable to share my exact profile.Also , thats not of
    much use, because having same numbers in all is a bad way to benchmark
    oneself.If you are above the averages fo...

    HI Wasatch,
    thanks for starting this thread and giving us valuable info, and yes your right the BYU is the most reasonable top 30 MBA program, and I am definitely interested in coming there.
    What I would like to ask you is
    1) How is the student life out there, both in and off capmus?
    How many Indians you have in the current batch?
    Also if you could share your pre-application profile & general profiles of Indians in the batch.
