Given what an acceptance letter starts with, anyone care to share how a deny letter starts off?


Hope you can appreciate the new low threshold I've reached for what passes as interesting these days... :lol:


haha agree... I've started tentatively looking up the admit weekends (which of course are overlapping with eachother/previously booked commitments) and the start dates for each school to think about pre-school travel options. Its all becoming very real and am trying to cope by planning around the unknown!

As a point of reference, there are currently 466 members in the private HBS 2015 group on facebook.

Bear in mind that that number includes R1/2+2/joint degree as well as a few HBS 2014 folks (who have joined to post listings for roommates and surveys for their FIELD projects) and a few turncoats who turned down HBS for other schools but haven't left the group yet.

So may be they will send another 400 offers in R2.

And based on previous years' threads, about 20-25 gmat clubbers will get offers.

Thought I would just add that for those of us based in DC, the spate of activity outside the Supreme Court these few days is an extremely helpful distraction.

I find myself reading the Washington Post and watching rallies more frequently than lurking on gmatclub since the weekend!

GC'ers,

Thanks for letting me hang with you all. This forum has helped me get through these last few months as I, at times, blindly navigated the b-school app/interview process.

Whatever the outcome tomorrow, it's been a real pleasure going through this rough process with you all.

Good luck!

I think you should reapply next year, just to get that Manager status. I don't mind using your Tuck admit in the meantime.

You will get an email at almost exactly noon EST saying your decision is available online, then you check it through a link on your application status page.

Admits will get a phone call in the next day or two, usually from your interviewer but sometimes from Dee.

Agreed...it's interesting how slowly time can seem to go when you're watching it so intently! That being said, we will all know soon enough! Good luck to all!
