    I was contacted this morning. UMich Ross undergrad, 3.96 GPA, 2 leadership positions, 1 experience at a microfinance firm (although that's not really finance haha)

  • seedy underbelly's picture

    3.96? you beast ;)

    good luck for the interview! :)

  • seedy underbelly's picture

    No problem. :) Let us know how it goes. Could be a great resource for next year's applicants.

    Applied. They told me to go away.

    Under my tutelage, you will grow from boys to men. From men into gladiators. And from gladiators into SWANSONS.

    Is this some sort of diversity program?

  • supramonash's picture

    @ Flake: Are you talking about last year?

    @ people who got interviews: where is the interview? at NY? Anyway, Good luck!!

  • supramonash's picture

    I got invited to the interview too....do you guys know how they do their interviews? Is everyone's interview on the 24th?

  • wellhellothere's picture

    My interview's on the 24th as well! It's at their headquarters at 60 Wall Street. Best of luck supramonash :)

  • hola's picture

    i got an interview as well! :)

    does anyone know what kind of interview it will be?
    how many people usually participate in DBAchieve?

  • ashby's picture

    I've got an interview too. I wonder how many people interview/how competitive it is? There isn't too much information about it...

  • supramonash's picture

    I messed up... Was fumbling towards the end :(

  • hola's picture

    I messed up too... it was a pretty difficult interview. They asked me technical questions :(

  • supramonash's picture

    Did you have finance background? For me, I messed up on the behaviorial questions. Got too comfortable, now that I think of it. So early next week --- does that mean Monday?

  • hola's picture

    No finance background but I did get questions about accounting..

    I'm not sure when they'll be getting back to us, hopefully soon

    goodluck!

    Hey everyone,

    So I went to the interview yesterday and I was notified last night that my application was placed on hold. Did anyone get a response yet? If you were placed on hold, does anyone know what this means? They told me that I will be given a final response within a week. Hopefully they just want to review my application more closely....

  • YeahYeah92's picture

    Bump! I guess everyone is taking the weekend as relief

  • ashby's picture

    Just out of curiosity: those who applied, what is your connection to diversity? What did you feel makes you appropriate in terms of diversity for a program like this?
