wow this is a long ass thread. I just put in my R2 app yesterday, my very last one! I don't feel that I made the best effort on this one... I was really getting sick of writing. :(

Anyway, ryhme can update the list with my stats:
720 GMAT, <3.0GPA, CompSci major in top Canadian school, 3+years in tech

I would be fairly surprised now if I even get an interview :roll:

Good job getting it in, and good luck! I'm rooting for the R2 team (though I think that probably half the list on Page 1 never actually applied)...

add me to the R2 chaos.

My instinct is that I should be intimidated, but...

What are the odds of getting accepted if you get invited for an interview?

I just got an email from GSB saying that if you are not invited to an interview by Feb. 21, you are denied.

Quick and deadly.

Roughly speaking, they interview between 50 to 60% of candidates. This was said by the Dean some time ago in some BW chat. I've lost the link.

From there, I had once upon a time estimated you had a 1 in 2 chance of admittance - it was backed up by data... but I dont remember what the calc was. However, it looks like its closer to 1 in 3 if you trust admissions411. In this case, I think the sample seems large enough to be at least a little trustworthy. So, basically, if you make the interview cut, your odds are 1/3.

The quick and deadly thing is nice if you ask me - i mean if they decide to reject you, why not tell you in Feb? Why make you wait until March or April?

Quick and deadly. More schools need to be like this. Berkeley 1Rers applied back in Nov. 6 and Haas is not even done extending all the interview invites. It's been 2 months!

hmm... so the interview can make you but not break you? Or the other way around ? Which one is it again?

2.5 is fine... it kills me to realize that your starting salary will match my starting salary in 2 years... yet ill be much older.
