Took almost 6 years to complete my undergrad as i was involved in a full time managerial job at a insurance company. So in that sense, almost a fresh graduate yet worked full time for almost 4 years smile.gif

It's amazing to see so many people from several disciples, industries, and walks of life.

Not only that but to have this forum thread to share this journey with all of you.

We are at the gates of March were at the end of that month, most of us will realize their results.

I wish you all the best not only in your admission results but in your aspirations as well.

Cheers,

Zi

Hello!

After having an interview last week, I just got an update from Chalmers that I'm on the waiting list for its Master in Entrepreneurship programme, which is my 1st priority. The email mentioned that I'm number one on the waiting list (I wonder if everyone on the waiting list gets the same "number one" on their emails). Anyway, the final decision will be informed by Friday, 2 March 2018. Let's see how it will go!

In the meantime, I got QUALIFIED with the rating of 180 out of max 225 for my 3rd priority, Uni of Gothenburg for Master in Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship programme. I'm under AP category, which means I won't submit any GMAT or GRE result. So, I have no idea of my chance with this rating in this category.

Just want to share with my fellow fighters here! smile.gif wink.gif

I'm quoting myself, ha! biggrin.gif

I have a question, if let say, I get a spot in Chalmers, would it still be possible for me to drop that offer and go with Gothenburg instead?

Appreciate your comments! Thanks.

Unfortunately there is no way to do this. If you get admitted to one program all other programs are automatically void.

What if I get admitted to my fourth choice. Does it mean that my first choice won't consider my application?

Hi, no it doesn't work like that.
As far as I know, all of your choices consider your application, then they mark you as admitted, reserved or rejected. If your 1st choice mark you as admitted your 2nd, 3rd and 4th choices will be deleted. If your 1st choice mark you as rejeceted and 2nd choice mark you as admitted then 3rd and 4th choices will be deleted.

So it doesnt' matter if you're already admitted to one program, the others will still consider your application. You will get into the highest ranked one which admits you and the others will be deleted.

Hi guys smile.gif

I'm happy that I've found the forum! I think it's a great place to help each other with regards to the applications.

I've applied for a Master in Gothenburg and have now received "Qualified" as well as a merit rating. It says: "Your merit rating in this selection group is: 180 of a maximum 225"

Does anyone know what this means and if the merit rating can still change?

Thank you in advance!

Cheers

Hey FieFiea, That's a bit skeptical to explain but here goes : you are now in the waiting list of Chalmers and let's say you got an admit to Gothenburg which is ur 2nd choice then ur below choices will be voided. And then if you get selected at Chalmers afterwards your admit to Gothenburg will not be voided unless you accept the offer in chalmers. So basically now u have 2 choices.
And yes if ur waiting list number is 1 u have got a gr8 chance there ...All the best smile.gif
