Thank you! Darden's my first choice, so I'm very likely to head there. I am yet to receive the Kenan-Flagler results, but my results so far have been:

Cornell: Ding
Boston U: Accept
Georgetown: Accept

That's a toughie, lanter. First of all, congrats! It's great that you have an opportunity to decide between these great schools.
I think the most important thing that you have to decide is which school can offer you more opportunities in your post MBA field. Yale SOM carries a lot of weight in its brand name; however, the school places its graduates mostly in northeast and financial services/non-profit areas. I'd say Darden is a more well-rounded school: it's great in general management, places a lot of people in IB, consulting and even marketing.
That being said, Darden's method of teaching is strictly case-based. Are you OK with that way of learning? Plus, Darden is famous for (unnecessarily?) rigorous curriculum. When I visited, married students were saying that they had a very hard time finding 1-2 hours for their families, and that's over the weekend! Knowing that you and your wife are expecting, would you be comfortable not seeing your family for days?
These are all hard questions but I think if you answer them honestly, you might be able to make your decision rather quickly. :-)
PM me if you want to discuss further!

Staring at a big fat DING from Darden at the moment. I guess we'll know tomorrow night.


Hey man, at least you've got NUS. I've got zilch, squat, zero, nothing...My apologies, this application process has made me a *little* cynical and pessimistic (realistic?). No wait, I'm really a nice guy! Hold on.....argh.....pain.....left side of head......evil thoughts.....argh.....Yup. I'm officially insane. My apologies for making you waste one minute of your life to read this completely useless post :)

Edit: Congrats to the admits! I'm happy for you guys. Honestly.

These guys should freaking hire some of their own graduates as consultants to streamline their admission process. This is all so screwed up ...
oh well, I don't expect myself to be the lucky one to get an interview invite the last day ...should stop logging in to check my status now and retire from this thread.
..just so painful.

Congrats to all the admits, really glad to know your efforts paid off !

Congrats to all of the Darden admits. Beautiful campus, incredible school! When I visited, I thoroughly enjoyed the First Coffee. Also, there is a student there named Pelihu, you might want to meet him, he knows his _ _ _ _.

DING. In the spirit of full disclosure, I was expecting to be at least interviewed at Darden. Congrats to all the admits!

@NC: Your crystal ball is all wonky! :) Or maybe it's just me and my evil ways...
