Man, I feel so emotionally drained right now.

Cheetarah, LRW, scorpionz, congrats. Definitely expected it for all three of you. My stats buddy, Consulting2Finance, and I, will learn of our fate tomorrow morning. I'm not too hopeful about this or about my prospects at Wharton, but I refuse to be a defeatist.


Hello212, do NOT feel defeated. You WILL get in at Wharton. I have faith. This process is crazy and there are no rules for ir.

But trust me, I have a lot of faith in you with Wharton. Sometimes, Booth reject REALLY top notch applicants because they are worried about their yield. My interviewer told me that point blank. So with your 760 gmat, they thought you might end up at HBS or Wharton and reject them.

Just my 02 cents, I might be wrong.

Just when you thought the last admit was reported...I got into work this morning to discover a message from Kelly Curtin waiting for me. She didn't say exactly what it was about, but I assume they didn't call me to ding me. Tried to call back just now but it's 9PM in Chicago, so will have to wait until the morning there to call back. Feeling incredibly pumped!


Any idea at what time (Chicago time) was the message delivered?

Message was left at 10:30PM China time, which would translate to 9:30AM in Chicago I believe (they're on Daylight Savings Time now right?)

Solidarity my friend. At least you have CBS to fall back on. Plus when we both cash in Wharton this will seem like a bad dream.

Missed a call at 4:02. Admissions office left a message. Called back and got VM.. can it be???


That's a YES... I had a similar experience (described in the last post on page 101).

Congrats! And congrats to everyone who has heard from Booth today, really.

For those who haven't, I remember from going through last year's posts that the calls didn't stop going out till 7-8pm CST... so hang in there.


Thanks! It is a yes. I was waitlisted in R1.

I won't believe there is bad news for you (or Consulting2Finance) unless I see it in writing. I'm rooting for you. Booth would be stupid to turn either of you two down and I don't think that Booth is a stupid school. #teamhelloandc2f
