I sent out all of my applications in mid to late October. I am quite pleased I did so early because I have just received an email today stating that part of my application material was never received. Now I have time to resend it.

Luckily, I have a couple vacations planned for December so maybe the waiting won't always be on my mind.

I completed all of my applications one month ago. One month waiting has already made me paranoid. I have been wondering "what if ..." all the time. What if the application package is lost? What if the score report is missing? What if I get all rejected? Most of the schools I am applying to won't make admission decissions until next April. I will be paranoid for three more months...

BTW, tkkoh, thank you for leaving a cheering message in my blog.


no prob - we need to provide mutual support and encouragement. :lol:

Hey,

I will apply for OB program this year. My GMAT is 730, and I had some research experience in econ and sociology. I will apply to 9 schools. Hopefully, I can get in one of them. These days, I work on essays and application.... seem like it never ends. :)

I thought that decision making is more in relation to strategy than OB...

Hope everyone will have a Merry Christmas - an early admit within the next 2 days will make a wonderful present, don't you think?

is early admit a possibility? if the deadlines have just passed (and some didn't) is it possible to get an admit decision so soon?

The formal admit is likely to come between Feb and Apr. But an informal one can come anytime :wink:

Maybe you have been in contact with a prof in a particular school, and the prof says "Dude, I like you and will tell the department to reserve a seat for you. Pack your bag and get ready to fly here..." :lol:

Mmmm....

I have exchanged several emails with three professors.

I can tell that their answers are positive, but I don't think that they can talk about the admissions firmly before the decisions made by the admissions comittees. Even you get an admission letter, things still may change. One of my friends ever got a second letter informing him that the first admission letter sent to him was a mistake when he applied for an MBA admission. So, I am preparing to apply to some European schools in case I get all rejected in the US... :roll:

Would you pleas share the reason that you got rejected by 2 50+ schools last year but aimed at those between 20 and 40 this year? Are you with the same qualifications as you were last year?
