I got an interview at booth... First one, having been ignored by Harvard thus far. I couldn't be more excited, booth is my number 1.

I'm 24/m/51mo/760/6.0/3.6 from Berkeley in mechanical eng.

Good luck everyone! Keep your heads up...

BTW, if anyone wants to chat, feel free to message me. We are all under a lot of stress, and reading these posts has helped me realize I am not the only one out there who is going crazy over this. (note: I originally wrote "...reading these posts has kept me sane," but we all know that isn't true."

Any sub 700 score R1 applicants feeling as insecure as I am?

Congrats to all interview invites today!

Same boat here NYC...the 690 just constantly lingers in my mind. Hopefully positive news to come. Best of luck.



The way things are going, I'm starting to get worried myself, and I have a 700+ score.... We could put a spin on it. I'm from NYC too, so maybe they're saving all the nyc profiles for this weekend.....


I've been trying to focus on all the strong things about my application, going through the reasons I SHOULD get an interview invite rather than reasons I shouldn't. It's helping a little bit..

A total of 36 invites out so far (based on posts and updates on page 1). A total of 130 folks applied for R1 (I took 130 as some others did not have any updates on whether they actually applied to the program)

Seems 25% have received invites. Looks like there will be some more invites at least.

I received my invite Thursday morning and selected the off-campus option (I've already visited Booth). I got my alumni interviewer's information Friday morning and sent him an e-mail to set the interview up...I haven't heard back from him!! Freaking out, I know I'm supposed to contact Booth if the alumni doesn't get back to me within 2 business days (was in the off-campus instructions), but I'm freaking out!! Any suggestions?

Good luck to you all and congrats to those who were invited this week - I guess I will have to wait until Wednesday to find out my fate for Booth.....fingers crossed. :shock:

Seems like most of people who were invited have GMAT score of 700+.....


it seems like that.
+20 points or 2-3 additional points in a section make a difference as I see.

Sometimes I feel that AdComs worry more about the GMAT score (which is included in calculations for most of ratings)
than in the content of the essays (which are not included in any rating).

My 2 cents here

IMHO - Booth has released very few invites from Nov 2. I think people who have not been invited are panicking, but there is not much to panic about. - as per my calculations, it seems around 10-15 people got invites every day among GMATClub applicants (starting from Nov 2), a far lower average number compared to previous years applications.

In the past when Booth released invites over a period of 2 weeks, it released a significant amount of invites in the beginning, another peak in the middle and then finally things tapered off at the end.

Comparing the past events to the present, I feel that Booth has really not released the huge chunk of invites that we have been waiting for.

I could be wrong, but I think this coming week will see a significant rise in incoming invites.

can't login to the chat room...

anyways, quick question here:

Since some people already got the email invitations today at 9:46am, does it mean that they are not gonna send out anymore invitations today? or is it rolling based even within a daily schedule?

Reason I'm asking is that it's 12:06AM in beijing now and I am very tired...wondering if I should just give up for today and go to bed... :(


I got mine in the late afternoon...last Thursday. So the invitation could come at anytime.

But you have until Dec 3rd to schedule your interview, so 9hrs of sleep isn't going to hurt anything! :)
