Wow, that's 100% what I feel!
14 long months of GMAT-Wedding-GMAT-ApplicationsX5 have ended with Chicago application submitted.

It will take me some time to relax, being geared up for such a lobg time. Damn, I spent some of my honeymoon writing essays at a mexican beach.

Sorry, just read on the Yale thread that you hit the submit button after 5.

For what it's worth, I know of a person who applied to Rottman (Canada) 8 hours after the deadline and it was still considered in that round.


Thanks. I don't think it'll be an issue. :)

Anyone know how booth's re-application process works? I heard that they dig up your previous app and do a full point-by-point comparison.

I'd be surprised if they didn't do it that way. I've heard that from a few consultants now. (and I presume not only Booth, but a lot of other schools would do this as well). I don't have info on whether Booth does a much more in-depth analysis.

I just talked to an admissions agent at Booth full-time office, and she said that they do NOT dig up or look at your previous app. I asked her several times if she's confident about this, and she said yes. This is really surprising.

For both rounds 1 and 2, the acceptance rate is roughly 22-25%. No idea on round 3, but i'm sure it's a lot lower.

For those of you booking hotels for ADMIT WEEKEND I

Bookit.com has a 99 hour sale going featuring the Hyatt Magnificent mile for $79 a night + tax for dates in February. It is currently available at that price for Feb 7-10 (admit weekend 1). You can choose 1 or 2 queen beds, so good for those of you planning on having roommates. They also have Swissotel for $89/night and other hotels as well.
http://bookit.com/us/illinois/chicago/?hotelUniqueId=4329865&overrideRedirect=1&ADID=TP_107931

The sale only goes through midnight TONIGHT.
