@ ALL

I had applied by R1 deadline, but to the delayed submission of test scores, i had my interview yesterday only. Does anyone have an idea about the results declaration date for Round 1?

Hi, I have a query with regard to the application to the MBA program, Is it mandatory to upload the financial documents at the time of application?


Thanks

No, it is not required to upload any financial docs at the time of application submission. Only when you're granted admission, you're required to show and upload financial docs.

I do not know, neither can ascertain the chances, but yes, you seem to have a good profile. I have very little idea about the new GRE. Everything boils down to your complete application package rather than any particular constituent. You definitely have a good starting point for your applications with your profile.

I was interviewed today by Mark Lockwood in Mumbai. The interview lasted 40-45mins, but it was more of a conversation not a question answer session.

The only questions he asked me directly were,
1. Tell me about your professional experience
2. What is your leadership style?
3. Other schools that I am applying to

If I have to list down the topics we talked about, the list is below
1. Strengths
2. What will I bring to the Illinois community
3. How do I stand out
4. Activities I do during free time

Later he talked about the culture at Illinois, what to expect, what is expected, recruitment scenario and few more that I am unable to recall at moment.I hope my experience will be helpful to others!

P.S: If anyone gets an opportunity to interview with Mark, consider urself lucky; he makes you feel comfortable and is very helpful and down to earth.

Thanks Sid! Well leadership style is nothing but how do I lead my team; for example, I give my team members responsibility and independence or maybe I have strict invigilation process setup, u encourage or u promote collaborative behavior etc

Hi All,

Hope ur applications are coming along well! I know this is a difficult waiting phase that can be excruciating. But for those who have got interview invites, congratulations! You must have received interview details from the Illinois MBA….Mark would be in New Delhi for interviews on Nov. 19, 20. Interviews in Mumbai will be on Nov. 21, 22 and finally some interviews on Nov. 23 in New Delhi, before the adcom team flies back.You can cite my name (DJ) for reference to Mark.


Having said that, this is not the end of interview rounds. The team is in the midst of application review and subsequently candidates might be invited for interviews over Skype. I wish u all good luck with interviews. Do let me know if u need any other info!

Best,DJ
