You are asking if you should be disheartened because you haven't heard anything 6 days after your interview? Umm, no.

What are your stats?

I think you are in good shape, but you know as well as anyone that you are in a highly competitive group from India, particularly this year.

As an FYI, it took 10 days from the date I was interviewed to get notification of acceptance...

Thanks. I haven't decided where I will be attending. I'm still waiting on decisions from a few more schools...

Where else did you apply?

It generally takes then 5 - 6 days to update OPUS. I was interviewed on 1/31 and the status update was reflected on 2/6.

1-year or 2-year ?

Emory gives high weightage to Quant Score of the GMAT! It was mentioned in the adcom chat and at info sessions as well

what's your strategy for the WL ?

This is for 2 year. Quant score was still ~80%, not sure how this compares to the average.

I responded to the waitlist letter and will receive feedback on my application soon. I think my weakness may be lack of experience. I'm 24 years old with only a couple years of job experience in marketing for a big tech firm. I plan to submit another recommendation.

I am also considering taking the GMAT again if my quant skills are a concern. On practice tests I was getting >90% on Quant. On test day I was shell-shocked with the difficulty of the 1st problem, which I ended up spending literally 10 minutes on. I know that my score can improve if i don't freak out.

Mine took around 20-25 days, but that was around the holidays - so I would think that you would hear back sooner.
