Yea this would be an interesting pattern to follow. It seems the 08 swayed the 09 class to an extent (look at the number of Kellogg and Booth students matriculating this fall from GMATClub). I've read a lot of posts by the 08 folks, and I don't think its a coincidence that Haas, Kellogg, and Booth are my top 3 choices. :)

Maybe I should hold an evening Chatroom Schmoozing event for all 2010 applicants where all the newcomers can mingle with one another and maybe some 2009 admits…. I can't let Raabend, isa, or Solaris to steal all the 2010 applicants to their respective schools…. I need some live bodies at Yale SOM... :wink:

Kellogg, Booth, and Ross have been the three biggest in terms of students heading there for the past two years. I think there are 14 people in Kellogg's class of 2010 from on here and now around 20. The success at HBS and Stanford was stellar on here this year. Overall I think its a function of growth of the site. Of course threads for schools that have students get a lot more activity since you can get insights from students during the application process. Threads for places like Kellogg and Booth definitely drive more interest than someplace like Sloan where the success rate is much lower and dont have students talking glowingly about the program. I think the first post on threads that show tons of admissions and people attending those schools will be one of the biggest influences. Just compare MIT's and Kellogg/Booth (even HBS)...that will get a lot of people thinking about which schools they really want to dedicate countless hours applying to.

River, I completely agree. I meant my comment in entirely a positive way, sorry if it came across differently. I think you've done an excellent job as a representative for Kellogg, as has Rhyme for Booth, Kryzak for Haas, etc. Having these representatives helps people in their selection process. For example, your answers regarding the size of the Kellogg being a big benefit in looking for a GM position in Energy was very helpful. The fact that there are people on here talking glowingly about the programs makes others gravitate towards them.

Don't rush your GMAT prep. You have plenty of time. Most R1 deadline is in Late Sept to Mid October if I remember correctly.

I think its just HBS; they did the same thing last year, if I recall correctly. The other schools should be releasing their questions around the same time that they did last year.

Re: Calling All 2010 Applicants / Bschool visits (Merged) [#permalink] New post 16 May 2009, 14:34
Regarding school visits. is it worth it to travel all the way from South America to the US, go both to east and west coast (stanford only) just for a quick visit? I could do mostly for free using frequent traveler miles, but not sure about the impact in the final decision. However, I really want to show interest in my top 3 choices to the adcom

Any tips on this?
