Hello Guys, Anyone applying to Tippie for the 2013 intake?
Anyone applying to Tippie for the 2013 intake?
Yeah iam planning to apply.. but i need to boost my gmat.. have a mere 660.. how abt u? wats ur profile? and what are the strengths of iowa tippie
I have a 740 GMAT, but my work ex is on the lower side, its just 2 years.
Strengths of tippie, well, I can only speak about what I have read but I am not sure I have anything new or special to add to that. It would be best if some present/ ex student from there could comment.
Got an admit. Decent scholarship.
@WubWubMan , your profile?
I got my admit this morning.
The questions were the usual. Nothing out of the ordinary.
You have applied to any other colleges @WubWubMan ?
Congratulations! are you waiting for other colleges and if so which ones do you wish to get into? I applied to Yale (long shot, didnt get) and am applying to vanderbilt round 2, jan 8th.@Gunner711
I have applied to a few more colleges. yes.
But, for no apparent reason, I prefer Tippie the most. Probably because I feel it is a college that is growing in the rankings and not coming down. So, I need to sit and brain storm if I want to think of something else or settle for Tippie.
Same here. Its great here in the midwest and Iowa city has some really nice people. downside is that no major companies in town since its a college town. However there's always Chicago which is just 3 hrs away.@Gunner711
Yeah, as you are actually staying in the US, would it be possible for you to shed some more light on the placement stats for international candidates?
I know a couple of Indians from previous batches who are currently employed and a couple who are 2nd year students. Apart from that I don't have a lot of information. I believe some student profiles have been posted on the college website and contain a few international students.@Gunner711
they do, but they would only show the positive side of the story. I want to know the negative side of tippie, if there is any.
You are a Indian national living in the US?
I would really appreciate if you could share your interview experience? (Method of interview, Questions, etc)
While I am still trying to find out and doing all research I can about Tippie, I have not found any negative yet. So I would be glad if you could actually give me quote what you read or some such thing.
@ss_srijan , the interview was not bad. I think it was more of a formality. It lasted an hour. it was on skype and it was just the basics. Nothing special.
Some of my friends staying in US hd said that the placements in Tippie hvnt been spectacular in the past few years.... but again, I would like to know something more substantial....anyways I am applying to Tippie as I believe the curriculum suits me perfectly
