Please no :) I am not scaring anyone ... but it pays to know the turf better before you enter it .... I am yet to give GMAT and I am looking at some indian/european programs as of now (lack of funding).. might change my plans but not in the near future ...

I am sure you'll do good gameCode ....

rumor has it applications are up big once again...Its hard to guess how its going to play out for R2. Could be a huge increase because of the unemployed or people scared of that, but it could hurt international apps as the loan market continues to dry up. Personally I would say it will be another year like last year. However, thats all out of your control so just focus on yourself and try not to worry too much about it.

However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.

yeah !! loan is the big problem .... Most of the applicants (esp. intl ones) depend heavily on loans ....

As river pointed out, its all out of control; we cant help it in anyway (even the FED is struggling)
