Ding for me.

My GPA? My interview? Oh well, maybe this is a good thing ... bring me down from a bit after a pretty successful run. Easier for me to make a decision now. :)

Congrats to all admits guys.

I'm in! And ridiculously excited about it. :)

Did anyone hear anything on scholarships? I haven't seen anyone mention any (here or on BW). It doesn't impact my excitement, but I'm definitely curious if those went out with decisions or if they'll come out later.

I just woke up to see the letter...no dice for me, oh well cant win em all. The fact I already made my decision and am sick with a 101.4 fever keeps me from being able to care today.

Sorry for that River

Sorry to hear the other dings also guys. All the best with the other applications.

For the admits: warm congrats.

For the wait lists: do not give up, keep fighting!


Later this week I will write something hilarious, well at least right now with my admit, somethings that went wrong in my interview...


I'm still leaning towards Chicago, but it will be a tough call. I will be in USA for around 2 weeks to get to know schools, cities, etc, etc, etc...

Hey I've been promoted, I'm a Major Shareholder right now :lol:

Well, this guy ( http://forums.businessweek.com/n/pfx/fo ... w-bschools ) is based in India, is in IT and he got admitted to MIT Sloan. So that should put the theory of "MIT doesn't like Indian candidates or Indian IT candidates" to rest.

I met plenty of Indians during my visits and events for MIT...its just a smaller school that draws heavily from IT and Engineers which a lot of Indians happen to fall into.

CONGRATS EVERYONE! Sorry I've been so preoccupied with another school that I didn't notice this happening!!! :P

Sorry to the dings and WL's, but don't let that discourage you.

Great achievement terry and kwam for 2 UE admits!!!

Sorry river to hear about the ding, but you were practically a Kellogg person already. Hope you feel better soon!

Anyway, GMATClub is killing the percentages yet again!!! :)

Congrats to all of the admits! And, another congrats to all those who have multiple admits; it will be a tough (but welcomed!) decision to make...not a bad predicament to be in :-D

In the spirit of full disclosure, I am glad I got dinged. A WL would have been annoying and wouldnt really give me closure. An admit would have led to some marital strife, since I was decided on Kellogg (heck I started the Kellogg 2010 facebook group a month ago but Mrs. RR really wanted me to go to MIT because its where a lot of our friends and family are. This eliminates a decision that would have been very tough since one of us would be disappointed.

Congrats to the admits.

NC, RR and others with a Ding : Sorry to hear this. I know the amount of commitment you guys put in to each application, and am sorry to hear this. I know for some of you this made things a bit easier as you were just waiting for this one to decide where you will matriculate....but for those waiting for the first admit, I hope you hear the good news soon.
