In with scholarship as well. Very excited. Part of me hopes I get rejected from Wharton on Thursday so that I don't have to make a tough decision...

Got the call a few hours back.

Yes Wharton does. Notification of a fellowship award is in the admit letter on your online status update.

Today was a mental beat down - went in wishing for an admit, hoping to be 100% done with applications and stress free. Left more stressed than before, wishing to be on a wait list.

However, a sincere congrats to all the people who made it through. The chat room was pretty entertaining at least.

I was really really hoping for a call. As a re-applicant, it has been an incredibly long and painful journey. I know, I must have done something right to be interviewed both times, but guess, it was not enough.

I may be pushing it to the limit but isnt it possible to receive an admit even though one did not receive a call? I think it happened last year with one guy in africa who applied to stanford.

It happened to my friend at Booth 2 years back.

So still hoping for a last minute miracle, knowing that the odds are miniscule.
