I would love to believe you. But what about ncprasad's crystal ball, that never lies? It will be a tough task doing better than what the crystal ball saw!! :(

I am thinking of linking to this thread in my Wharton essays. You guys should do so too.

It's funny how ncprasad's somewhat kind predictions for us gave us all this little "Aah, so I am getting selected in {insert school name} at least" feeling :)

that is definitely true. I'd be lying if I said I would be disappointed if I didn't get into Stanford but still got into Haas. But in the grand scheme of things, I'd be ecstatic if I got into a B-school of Haas' caliber, so no complaints for me!

(I just really really really want to get into Stanford... pretty pretty pretty please??? :pray

Obviously, predictions are just that. But when I picked schools for each of you, I did use some reasoning. I am confident that I will be proved right. Let's see in another 4/5 months.

No kindness buddy. It's just my sneaky way to make people believe that Ross will take me. Have you heard of "admit by association" :wink:

Logically speaking, the only way you can disprove me is not by getting into stanford, but by NOT getting into Haas and UCLA. Now, we wouldn't want that to happen. Would we?

ahh, that's true... I guess your predictions are where we're going to get IN, not where we're NOT going to get in... point taken. That just means the rest is still up in the air, i feel better now ;)

EDIT: I guess this is the VP post! :woohoo

kryzak,
You probably are the fastest to go from intern to VP (2 months). That should be taken as a point of interest for Stanford.

11.51 posts per day... and that's with my first month not using this account at all... I think I'm averaging 100 posts a week! Ok, I admit, I HAVE NO LIFE!!! :oops:

Maybe I can reach rhyme some day, though he has provided much more help to the GMATClubbers than I have... I'll have to step it up! :)
