1) Have you decided if you are going to matriculate or are you still holding out for another decision? Was always lookin only at UW. Will b goin to the States for the 1st time and I have my family there so it will be very good to go to Seattle. On top of evthing they have given me a generous scholarship by their standards so lookin forward to UW this fall.

2) Where are you holding out for or what would it take for a backup school to win you over? Not holdin out for any school but apllying to RSM and HKUST just in case me or my wife gets a visa denial. You never know what there visa people can do in our country.

3) Are you still planning on working on R2 applications or are you gonna save the application fees and enjoy your new found peace of mind? Like I said m still applying to RSM and HKUST to be on the safe side.


4) Have you begun to dream what its going to be like to quit your job and head back to school? Now that I have got admitted I am thinkin bout new life in the States ever more. Never struck me earlier but as the days go by m startin to think of it more. I have recently started thinking about the back to school part and I am curious bout how i am gonna live like a student with very little expenses after 3 years of running own businesses n being the master of my own destiny.

5) Sobered up from the celebration? M happy coz its always nice to c thing workin to plan but m not the types to celebrate 2 much and b 2 happy so i guess no sobering up. Yeah i took a weeks holiday along with my wife to Bangkok n still have a hangover from that one.

1) Have you decided if you are going to matriculate or are you still holding out for another decision?
Not yet. Still waiting on Chicago GSB and John Hopkins

2) Where are you holding out for or what would it take for a backup school to win you over?
Basically need to decide if I am going to go the MBA or MA in International Relations route. Have admits and at least partial scholarships for both now. If I go MBA - want to hear from Chicago 1st.

3) Are you still planning on working on R2 applications or are you gonna save the application fees and enjoy your new found peace of mind?
Applied Rd 2. I am done. So done. A lesson for those who are applying next year: Do not try to take the GMAT, GRE, do multiple applications and get married all within 3.5 months. Almost lost my sanity last autumn.

4) Have you begun to dream what its going to be like to quit your job and head back to school?
Need to sell my Condo. After it is sold, I will be ready to dream and quit my job.

5) Sobered up from the celebration?
Honestly, haven't had much of a chance to. Everytime I get good news I have an interview or some bs at work due the next day. But I'm not complaining... I'll make up for it in the summertime :lol:

1) Have you decided if you are going to matriculate or are you still holding out for another decision?
Yup. I'm matriculating at St. Gallen.

2) Where are you holding out for or what would it take for a backup school to win you over?
Not holding out for anything. I did hold out in the hopes of a scholarship and once I got that, I pulled the trigger.

3) Are you still planning on working on R2 applications or are you gonna save the application fees and enjoy your new found peace of mind?
Applied Rd 2. Wished I had gotten my act together earlier last year and not wait until November to BEGIN the process.

4) Have you begun to dream what its going to be like to quit your job and head back to school?
I just told my job that I'm leaving in two months. It is incredibly liberating. I'm going to travel for a couple of months before going to Switzerland.

5) Sobered up from the celebration?
Everyday I celebrate a little (like when I showed up 30 minutes late to work or leave early).

I have 2 months left as well. I have never felt anything quite as glorious.

next Monday I start 20 hours a week... I told my boss today to not expect me to lead any projects. purely "supportive" function only. :P It feels great to be able to say those things and demand those things without repercussions.

Part-time? when do you start your world tour?

Seems like a lot of you guys are off on your travels, You should arrange to meet up somewhere in case your travel plans cross paths.

I start my "world" tour in May. Will try to hit Cambodia, Taiwan, and South Korea before spending most of my time in China.

I'll be going to Fiji, Australia and Vietnam over two months. Definitely living cheaply. I'll have two months in Switzerland before school starts.

I've decided that I am going to try out retirement for 2 months before school starts. I want to experience waking up late, going to the gym in the middle of the day, and hopping on a plane and travelling whenever and wherever I want when I get that itch to do so.

I am in at Chicago and Kellogg. Waiting to hear from Columbia.

1) Have you decided if you are going to matriculate or are you still holding out for another decision?
Not final yet, but I am heavily leaning towards Chicago GSB

2) Where are you holding out for or what would it take for a backup school to win you over?
Will Columbia admit me and give me some money?

3) Are you still planning on working on R2 applications or are you gonna save the application fees and enjoy your new found peace of mind?
Applied only in R2 to the four schools (Wharton Ding)

4) Have you begun to dream what its going to be like to quit your job and head back to school?
Have been dreaming for quite a while now. I am just tired at my current job and need to get out. The admits have been very timely gifts for me.

5) Sobered up from the celebration?
Celebrations are on and continuing. It will be a three month long celebration. But suddenly the admits have made me to wake up and take stock of all the loose ends in my life..there are many, and I just want to take care of a few things now so that I can start afresh in bschool...trying to keep a level head for now

Congratulations on the Kellogg admit. And all the best for Columbia. Let's hope you get an admit there too, and in the end, you still come to GSB :)

1) Have you decided if you are going to matriculate or are you still holding out for another decision?
Matriculating at MIT Sloan.

2) Where are you holding out for or what would it take for a backup school to win you over?
Nothing

3) Are you still planning on working on R2 applications or are you gonna save the application fees and enjoy your new found peace of mind?
Most of my applications were round 2. I am done with the process, but now I must sell my house. Fortunately, I'm not in Florida or California that might have been real painful.

4) Have you begun to dream what its going to be like to quit your job and head back to school?
Heck yeah, I have three months of vacation time I'm using. Finally, I am able to kick back and not worry about the Middle East.

5) Sobered up from the celebration?
Once my house is sold, I'll be stress free. I'm looking forward to moving up to Boston.

slight spanner in the works for me.

Playing futsal last night. Received a long ball, turned my man and nudged the ball past him, he tried to ttackle me and clipped my foot, this caused me to stand on the ball in full sprint, twisting my ankle over and throwing my full weight on it with a loud crack!!!

Hospital scan showed no broken bone, but i can`t even stand up on it even with crutches. Hospital said to give it 3 days and if it hasn`t improved significantly then its probably a torn or ripped ligament which may need operating. So not working at the moment because i can`t get into the office.

Lots of things to do for my move abroad.. including updating my passport. I only have 1 blank page left, so need to go to the embassay to get a new one, and get my current Japanese visas transferred over to the new one (valid working visa means i have an option of an internship in japan if an opportunity arises). Wife is due in the next few weeks so she`s unable to carry anything, and we have a 2 year old running rampant who i can`t pick up or take to daycare currently :(
