Haha, I guess I'll have the first post too...

I just drove into town today and I'm attending class visits tomorrow and meeting with AdCom. I know this is short notice, but are any fellow gmatclubbers available to meet for coffee anytime tomorrow (July 12th)? Please do PM me if you are available.

Crazy to realize that my Kellogg experience is already over...best of luck with the applications guys. I loved my two years in Evanston and its sad that its over. Kellogg was way more fun than the real world.

In for R1 too.

Just out of my curiosity, how many schools do you guys plan to apply in R1 and R2 respectively?

I plan to apply to 4 schools in R1 but I haven't even finish a draft for one school...

I´m still deciding between 4 or 5. Would like to do 6, but I think that even 5 is a little bit too much.

Have already taken GMAT and TOEFL, and am currently in the middle of my first set of essays...

in for R1. I guess I would try to write Kellogg essays before other schools. Those topics are pretty straight forward and makes me think more about my Future plans and career goals.

This thread makes me sad by forcing me to confront the fact that I'm 1/2 done with Kellogg already. Best of luck to the applicants for class of 2013. Let me know if you have any questions or aspects of the school you want to talk about.

I'm shooting for R1 as well

Any word on reapplicant success? I tried R2 for the JDMBA program last year with 730 GMAT plus three years project management in software.
