I have a feeling you'll be getting into Tuck or NYU with a fellowship...

Either way...I'm sure you'll have good options.

WOW!!! I am so IMPRESSED by you all this year! terry12 busted open the floodgates last year and we have FOUR from R1 alone!!! Sweet! I can't express how excited I am for all of you.

When you do come for your admit weekend, I'd love to meet you all in person. Terry12, could you let me know when a good time may be? Maybe we can all meet in SF at a nice restaurant to celebrate. When is admit weekend anyways?

Sorry to hear about the dings and W/L. Stanford is practically a lottery (Haas is getting to that point too), so don't beat yourself up too much for the ding. I'm sure all of you will get into great schools this application season.

Good luck y'all!

Not sure where I'm leaning yet (pretty split on this one), but hopefully I'll bump into you guys at H's admit weekend :)

My fingers are crossed for the WListers.

Mikus, Looking at your results, I will follow your credo of procrastination! That definitely seems to be working , with payoffs right now! :)

Totally agree, I'm really impressed... and awfully excited!

Get-together sounds like a great idea, kry. Let me check on Admit Weekend dates and we can start figuring this out.

Wow, I am totally thrown for a loop. I got waitlisted despite never having received an interview invitation. I wasn't even going to bother logging on to my account just to see my ding (since I never received an invite), but did so more out of morbid curiosity, so imagine my surprise to get the "waitlist" letter. I am not even sure I know what this means. Has anyone heard of this happening to anyone else?

So now I am on the waitlist for both Stanford and HBS. It is going to be a LONG 6 months!

From what I hear, stanford does that for a lot of people. There's really nothing you can do, that is their style.

Rosav, we're in the same boat, and I think we have similar profiles as well (I'm F, 26, LA-based, MC / corporate strategy, top 3 liberal arts, 750+). I really wasn't expecting the Stanford waitlist since I didn't receive an interview invitation.

Guys I got the call - I'm IN.


Dear Lord msday.

-What are you eating?
-What vitamins do you take?
-How many hours of sleep do you get?

Whatever it is you have, I want it too, hehe. :)

CONGRATS THAT IS AWESOME! You definitely blew us all away this year!
