What were your plans?


Well I notified the "Waiting List Administrator" about two minutes after the status update saying I'd love a position on the WL. The GMAT really doesn't affect me. I know my 680 isn't anything to sneeze at, but I don't think a score of 700-720 would drastically improve my chances. A 680 is right in line with where I need to be.

I already talked to a supervisor and he agreed to write me the additional recommendation. He also said he'd get it in by Friday, and I told him he's nuts, we've got a bit of time. I'll have him submit it within a week though.

I'm also going to write the additional essay, though I'm not sure where to start. I have some professional accomplishments since November I can write about. I have some personal stuff. I can delve further into why Georgetown is my first choice. But since they didn't give us an indication on length I'm a bit scared to get overly wordy or lengthy in my response!

I do know that Georgetown last year admitted almost a third of all waitlisted candidates, so we've got a good shot.

You certainly have your act together way better than I do.

Nothing has really changed for me since I submitted my app, so I don't know what I am going to do.

But best of luck to you & we'll see how it all plays out. Is G'Town your 1st choice?

Bump.

I have an interview for McD in early March. R2. I actually like Georgetown's program a lot.

BW statistics: ~50% get an interview, around 60% of those interviewed get admitted.

update 3/23: All the R2 results are out, I was accepted. I didn't want to bump this thread because the interested in MickyD seems pretty low here, but there you have it. :)

Knock them dead!!!

Isa, Myself, and Fatb's latest brilliant strategy to get admit into top bschool:

1) Find a community college like bschool such as Monroe College MBA or Ithaca College MBA.

2) Buy the naming rights to the bschool. (i.e. Ithaca College Isa School of Business) Find Keller guy who bought Devry MBA program naming rights and ask him how much it cost him.

3) Start bschool application or interview, and tell them that no one else can claim - "I have my own business school named after me..." Your app is truly UNIQUE....

4) If bschool naming rights are too expensive, you can perhaps negotiate with GMATClub and buy the naming rights - Tarmac Website of GMATClub.....or something... :twisted:

Good luck with the interview and let us know if we can help.
