Hmm, haven't received any email yet! Is there anyone else who's yet to get the email?



Same here!


I just received the Admit Weekend email from the Admissions Office which has the link to the admitted students website. But still don't have any login details. Seems pretty strange, I've already contacted the Admissions Office

I'm on the waitlist... I'm assuming I can submit a higher GMAT score to them as "additional information"?

Please someone tell me otherwise if they're not accepting updated GMAT scores for waitlisters...

Not a whole lot we haven't already seen. Offer letter (very similar to offer email), welcome letters, admit weekend info, etc. Scholarship details and guidelines (must maintain minimum of 2.33 GPA).
That's about it!

Of course you can .... A stronger GMAT score cannot harm your application, can it? So, if I were you, I would definitely send the info ... and I am assuming here that it is more than just 10-20 points of an increment (for scores less than 700 initially).

On the contrary, schools almost expect you to do that. Its an objective way of strengthening your profile and many of your fellow waitlisters will definitely do so.

I received a $45000 per year fellowship for Booth, and now I'm so confused!

Do I take the Stanford offer, my top choice with no guaranteed money, or go for Booth?

Gah! Any ideas about this (albeit fortunate) conundrum?

Booth for me. Not a great lot of difference between the two. And $45k is just huge amount of money to pass up. It would have been a toughie it were a tier 2, but a clear winner for me here. Btw, what do you guys eat??

Wow! I didn't know that Booth awarded that much up front. Congrats.

Go with your gut. You just said Stanford is your top choice. Isn't that your answer right there?

WOW! Congratulations on the admits and the fellowship.

If west coast VC is what you are gunning for, Stanford may be the answer. But for most other things, I would think $45k/yr at Booth is too much to walk away from.

My good side agrees. My bad side wants you to pass that up to save some more moolah for the rest of us!
I'm sure you will be fine wherever you are, just a matter of where you want to be and how much you value that money...

Btw yes more people join the FB. It's awfully quiet...

Sannuzzo, there is an admitted students page on facebook. You should have received an email from an Adcom member with a link to join the group.

Just booked flight for Admit Weekend, decent AA fares from NYC to O'Hare. What hotels do people usually frequent for these weekends?

You should never feel lured in by $. Booth is an amazing program, true, but Stanford and Harvard are not only the two best schools in the world (hell, in the entire galaxy), but are also great brands that will keep opening doors for you.

Essentially, they all teach the same. The network, reputation and the brand is what differentiates Stanford from Booth or MIT.

P.S. There is a reason why you can't get a Ferrari or Aston Martin on sale, Brand Marketing 101 :)

While I do agree that Stanford and HBS have a stronger brand than Booth (for the time being), I don't think that it's an automatic guarantee someone should choose H or S over B.
90% of the time Stanford and Harvard grads wind up in the same companies doing the same jobs as people from Booth, Kellogg, MIT, and even schools ranked in the lower end of the top 20. Now if mbahopeful is one of the 10% of people who wants to do something really unique or work at a HF, VC, or PE firm that only hires from H/S then that's one thing. If he/she is going for IBD, M/B/B consulting, tech (Google, Apple, etc.) then there's no difference between the two. Who knows how and if the network will come into play down the line. And actually Booth's network is more expansive than Stanford's given the larger class size.

I too think that mbahopeful should choose Stanford. However, it's simply because it's clear that Stanford is his/her first choice. That's really all that matters. I think he/she (sorry OP, I don't know if you're a guy or a girl) just wants permission to turn down such a lucrative scholarship. Personally, I wouldn't let the money sway me from my 1st choice. I know a lot of people who turned down free rides to attend their dream schools. You're just betting on yourself that you will accomplish what you set out to do from the outset. The one caveat to this is if your post MBA goal is contingent upon money. Will the debt force him/her to postpone or forego pursuing the career he/she wants immediately after school? Does that matter to the OP? If it's not an issue then Stanford it is because that's where the OP prefers.

P.S. Don't get it twisted, HBS (need based) and Stanford (need and merit based) also offer sales to many admits.
