Mid-Decision date for R2 is February 13th


ah you're right, somehow i had it in my head that it will be Jan 29th... bummer Feb 13th is SO far away!


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!

Anyone in their research come across round 3 applicants who get 20+k in scholarships? Is this still a possibility?

At least they give a date certain for the notification. In my opinion it makes it much more bearable than "we start issuing invites the day after applications are due and continue all the way up until the admission decision deadline". With Booth you submit and don't need to worry about what may or may not hit your inbox until the 13th. On the 13th if you were going to be denied without interview they stop your suffering early.

I really do hop that they 'end' my suffering on the 13th!

I beg to differ.. I had an admit from Booth last year and spoke to quite a few current students... Though the adcoms will not admit it, when all else is nearly equal (as it shud be for admitted applicants), the GMAT score is one of the main drivers of fellowship consideration... The Tobaccowala Fellowship for Indian students at Chicago Booth went to a guy with a 780 on the GMAT

So yes it is worth retaking the GMAT and scoring in excess of 770.

Waste of time. GMAT score is small factor for fellowship consideration. Plus consideration for fellowships is the application you submitted for admission and possibly an additional essay (if required). Not everyone qualifies for every available award. I would talk to financial aid about your concerns and see if there are any fellowships they feel you should apply for. But I don't think retaking the GMAT will have any bearing on the money you could get from Booth.


Would they even accept a higher GMAT though after the application is finished? It is certainly worth it to ask admissions before re-taking. They can shed light better on this.
