Adcoms are probably eating lunch right now while the rest of us suffer.

Point of order. EST, CST, and PST are not particularly relevant right now unless you're in Arizona or Hawaii. It's Daylight Saving Time in most of the country, so EDT, CDT, and PDT make more sense. I usually just stick to CT to avoid confusion.


Wow I didn't know that! TIL that PST applies only to non-daylight saving time. Learn something new every day. I will use PT from now on.

Anyways, I got a call back from him at ~2:40 PT. Good to be out of the waitlist. Good luck to the folks who remain on the waitlist through the summer.

They have plenty of backbone. They dinged the shit out of me. Even after I flew there and had a stellar interview (even if I do say so myself). I would gladly have your WL if I could. I know you were just joking.

I hear you. It's just easier to get closure than waiting in the limbo of the lost. Especially after getting a ding at HBS last week after a WL (it was horrible, but closure nonetheless). I need a clean slate. Or so I say.

For those not following the WL thread, a few more dings and the the summer WL email came out today. I'm one of the fortunate ones, I guess.

Selfishly, I'd say don't forfeit your enrollment and housing deposits and stick with Ross. Although I'm excited to (most likely) end up at Ross, Booth has been my #1 from the word go and I know what my decision would be.

Honestly, however, I completely agree with

One way or another, we may end up as classmates. All the best and good luck making your decision (quickly :wink: ).

I plan to apply in R1 or R2. Is there a compelling reason to do R1 over R2? Does R1 increase an applicant's chances of getting financial aid?

You have an equal chance of receiving aid in both R1 and R2. I think the biggest benefit to R1 at Booth is getting it done sooner. In terms of competitiveness I look at the rounds like this:
1) R1 - fewer applicants and all of the seats in the class are open. However, R1 applicants tend to be very strong as a whole.
2) R2 - most applicants in this round, many seats still left in the class. More applicants may dilute the quality of the pool so you may not be up against every superstar who ever walked the planet
3) R3 - fewest applicants, but the class is nearly full. Adcoms looking for rockstars and needed diversity (industry, function, ethnicity, career goals, etc.) to round out the class. Chances for financial aid greatly diminish.

Thanks! I think I've also heard that R1 applicants who aren't promptly admitted might be rolled over into the R2 pool and later admitted.

By the way, I told you this a long time ago, but I still love your blog. I've spent the past two days catching up on it. Did anything happen with the MBA Jumpstart program?
