Based on how it's been done in prior years, I went ahead and opened up a thread specifically for admitted students.

I'm probably checking the application page 9-10 times a day, if the adcom tracks the accesses to the system they'll probably think I'm crazy...LOL

What are other people doing in the interim? Other than writing down the mid-decision dates, I've quit the process cold-turkey, deleting browser links, packing away the GMAT books, etc.

Making some changes at work, working on my first book, and losing some weight = my goals until late March.

Interview invites/rejections go out the same day at the same time on Feb 13.

I much prefer Chicago's method. Chicago = 1 day of stress for interview/ding; Wharton = 25 days of stress when they might email you before they ding anyone.

Hoping work and golf will take my mind off it until the 13th :)

Wanted to get out a post before all the craziness from Rd 2 invites/acceptances start:

If I am planning to live in the downtown/south-loop area, what is the best time to visit apartment buildings and sign leases?

Retake GMAT after being admitted in hopes of scholarship? This might be ridiculous, does anyone know anything about this? I got in round 1, and now I'm starting to take a hard look at those $50,000 tuition payments (makes each time I held off on the guac at chipotle a little less meaningful). I'd say the weakest part of my app was my GMAT (720 with sub-70 percentile quant and very high verbal). Would bringing up this score make me a viable scholarship candidate or is this foolish? Thanks guys!

foolish. i'm pretty sure it wouldnt help and very sure you could use your time more effectively. 1st - have you called the admissions office to raise your concerns? Especially if you have a scholarship from another school. 2nd - spend your time applying to scholarships - financial aid office can probably help plus there are a bunch online. The admitted student website has info about this. I think that would be a much more productive use of your time :)
