I had applied to Merage School of business for sept'13 intake and Simon school of business for Jan 14 intake.
For both these schools, I applied in the last round(last day). But that shouldn't be the reason for the rejection. It hurts real bad, as I had worked almost two months preparing application for both the schools. I am depressed and don't know what to do now. Please help me.

It happens dude.. Yup last round does matter, and could as well be a reason behind the rejection... Specially as you do come from India.. ( and let me assume IT)

Look at the flip side, now you get a chance to apply early.. And in better colleges... So keep going buddy..

I was in your shoes 4 months ago after Booth rejected me; it really sucked, but we can only prepare for the 2014 app cycle (R1!!!).
