Uh-oh, does this officially turn into a pants-pooping thread now that our apps are submitted?

Working on my U Chicago app I guess. Although that will, in turn, generate more pants-pooping. I just accept the fact that, at the end of the season, I will have pooped my pants quite a few times.

Not so much alleviating it, but delaying it... I'm busy working on Chicago GSB & Kellogg's apps. After that I'll start working on Ross & Wharton for R2 which should hopefully keep my mind out of pants-pooping mode. That is until I start seeing interview invites coming out and start freaking out about not being invited yet.

So with HBS' famous 14% acceptance, this means that at most two from this list will make it in...


Is this what they call a statistical error 8-)

Well, again, 14% is for the AVERAGE applicants. GMATClubbers are not AVERAGE. With scores over the GMAT Mean and good preparation like I've seen here, I think our changes are much higher than just 14%. I would even dare say 20-25%.

I think we had two admits last year. Dont know how many applied. With some luck, we should be able to atleast equal last year's record.

I love how there's already a link on the Harvard Application that says, "Your application decision is now available online"...at first I thought they took one look at my app and rejected it outright. It just says "Decision not available at this time".

I need a new hobby.

Yeah..it will slowly get on nerves. Just now, I was furiously searching for the status you posted. That is right there in the first page, but I was searching it all over the application. I was kind of worried for some time whether I submitted my app properly.

I agree, it is a brutal app.

In a way, I am glad I started with HBS. Every other app seems a cakewalk after HBS. Also, having 400 word essays as the base for the new essays helps me cover a lot more in 500 or 1000 words.

In other words, HBS is a sure ding for me. But, the app experience should benefit me when applying to the other schools.
