GUYS I got the call a little while ago . . . I'm IN!!!! Off the R1 waitlist!!! OMG I nearly started crying on the phone with Derrick. I was riding the BART and nearly broke down crying in the middle of the train. That is, before we went through a tunnel and the call dropped . . . was still shaking for about 20 min afterwards. I still can't believe it.

Congrats Rosav!! Well done. You deserved this success. :)

Congrats to the admits!!!!!!

So I read on BW from an admit from London that he/she received the call about an hour ago and that DB said he has 4-5 hours of calling left, which actually gives a bit of hope to those of us on the east coast (US) and others in Europe/ME/Africa.

Ok Guys. I am IN. I just got a call from Mr Derrick Bolton.

He said he was trying to reach me for last 3-4hrs and in India, my network tower went bust since last evening. I was hoping that he would call on the alternate number which he eventually did.

It was a pleasure talking to Mr Derrick. He said he in 5hrs time I will get a mail.

God is Great. I am indebted to everyone, all of you!

Thanks Gmatclub. :)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!

Didn't I tell you!?!?!? You are going to change India, my man, I know you are.

How long ago did you talk to him? I've read on BW that he's made some calls to the southeast US (where I am) in the last hour or two.

Thanks Foodstamp. How can we use the different colors in the profile link to show different admission status to Schools? In the modify profile column, can I use html codes?

Congrats to all admited gclubbers! And special congrats to rosav - being on the R1 waitlist I know how excruciating this whole journey has been so far. You must be ecstatic!

So rosav, as someone who managed the almost-impossible, do you have any tips for those of us who are still waiting? What did you do in the past two months to improve your candidacy?

Yes congrats, rosav! If I remember correctly, you were waitlisted in R1 w/o an interview, right? Do you think, then, you were considered with the R2 apps? I just haven't heard anyone else from the waitlist hear anything, although I really wish we would all hear something one way or the other--this four month waitlist wait is just cruel!

Thanks! I had a great "transformational experience" figuring that out inspite of your detailed code help. Haha!

CONGRATS foodstamp, Apu, and rosav!!! Good work. So many Stanford admits this year, it's awesome!

terry12, if you're organizing a get together sometime this summer, let me know. I'd love to meet the GMATClubbers. :)
