Nothing to unexpected reading that, I may have blocked it out but did she say holistic??? I was amazed I didnt catch that, though it has to be in there somewhere.

Fortunately that word was not used in her text... I searched for it.
Chicago got a lil love from me.....A school is a good fit for me when it manages to convey its message without using the you know what word

I think the GSB adcoms try to avoid using "holistic" as much as possible. I only heard it once during the whole GSB Live event.

I think it was more than that, I think nervous was laughing everytime they said it because she knows its my pet peeve. Though they definitely didn't use it as much as other schools. I swear some use that line 10 times every event. Thats a good plus for GSB in my mind. They need a thesaurus because that word is over used far too much.

Just got an email from Chicago GSB with the following message -

Thank you for submitting your application to Chicago GSB and congratulations on completing this introspective and thought provoking process. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible; we hope the details below provide you with useful details regarding the processing and evaluation of your application.



Application Status



During the application cycle you will notice the status of your application changing at different points.



Submitted – Once an application is submitted by an applicant the status changes to “Submitted.” Edits by the applicant are no longer possible. Recommendations may still be submitted through October 24, 2007.


Received – Chicago GSB acknowledgement of submission- all applications will be in received status by October 23rd.


Complete – Complete applications have been reviewed by the operations team; all required information has been received and the file is ready for review by the Admissions Committee.


Please allow the Operations Team at least two weeks to complete the processing of all applications. You may contact us after Tuesday October 30, 2007 if your application status is not “Complete” to determine if we require additional materials.



Incomplete – All applicants with incomplete applications will be contacted via email. Applicants can check the Application Status screen in the online application to check what is missing.


Invite to Interview – The Admissions Committee believes an interview will help us further evaluate your admission credentials. Instructions will be provided in the online application system to all applicants invited to interview.


Decision – The Admissions Committee has made a decision regarding your application.


Interview Decisions



· The Admissions Committee will begin to release interview invitations on Wednesday, October 31st, and will continue this process through Wednesday November 14th.

· On November 14th all applicants not invited to interview will receive notification via the online application system that they have been denied admission to Chicago GSB for the Class of 2010.



Interview Process



· If you are invited to interview, you must complete your interview no later than Saturday, December 1, 2007.

· Interviews are available:

On campus with a Graduate Assistant. Graduate Assistants are second-year MBA students and members of the Admissions Committee.
Off campus with an alumnus.
In selected hub interview cities throughout the world by staff or student.
· If you are invited to interview you will receive your final admissions decision by 5:00 p.m. Central Standard Time on Thursday January 3, 2007.



Official Transcripts and Scores



If you have not already submitted your official transcripts and GMAT/Language test scores to the GSB we highly encourage you to do so now. All invited applicants are required to have submitted all official transcripts and GMAT/Language test scores to the GSB. WE WILL NOT MAKE A FINAL DECISION TO ADMIT WITHOUT THE REQUIRED OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS.



If you have additional questions, please contact Admissions@ChicagoGSB.edu or visit our Discussion Forum at http://www.chicagogsb.edu/fulltime/forums/.



Once again congratulations on the submission of your application and thank you for your interest in Chicago GSB.

I think we can send after invited to interview. I will send an e-mail to the ad com asking if that's possible.

I've received this e-mail...

I thought during the Live Event they said decisions would go out before Xmas. I was hoping to know before the holiday. If I get in then I wouldnt have to spend my vacation stressing over R2 applications.

I think that is there unofficial target date to have it all completed by. They are probably just giving themselves some fudge room in case their schedule slips.
