Dear all,
Some of you have spent a whole year to prepare for your MBA battle. Some has been heavily occupied a few months to reach their dream schools? Some guys are accepted into Kellogg, but they think that it does not meet their expectation. I want to know your level of satisfaction.

Note: the second statement just explains the level of satisfaction of the first choice. It does not probably reflect the reason " you get into your dream-school." It could be taht you are "totally satisfied with your B-school or your choice." - Regards.

Well, I got admitted to 3 schools which I like a lot. So I'm completely satisfied.

Cheers. L.

I didn't vote because the choices don't really reflect how I feel. I was hopeful of getting into a better school, but I totally didn't expect to get a full scholarship designed so I could pursue my target career.

So while I was initially disappointed about not being admitted to a number of schools, I'm totally satisfied that my school is providing an unexpected opportunity to pursue the exact line of work that I'm interested in. I'm happy with how things turned out - it just didn't happen to occur at one of my reach schools. I guess I would call it "dream situation" but not at a "dream school".

I voted for the first choice even though it doesn't happen to be my dream school. (That would have to be Stanford, but I didn't even apply because I knew I stood a snowball's chance in hell). It's more like a stretch school with a solid regional reputation and excellent ROI. Also, from a geographically strategic standpoint, the school is ideally located in an area where my wife and I are really looking forward to doing business with a few key countries around the Pac Rim.

Whats the difference between 2 and 3. I didn't get into my #1 dream school but I got into one of the schools that I knew I would be really happy about (my #2 school out of 8).

I'm extremely happy w/ my outcome..

I didn't have a very competetitve profile (2.98 GPA, 600 GMAT).. so all my schools were reach schools. And frankly, I did not want to apply to schools that would have been considered to safety schools for me.

I targeted georgia tech from the very beginning, attended info sessions, visited a class, etc.. I think it really helped. I'm also thrilled that the program is shooting up in the rankings.

If there was an option that said: "Still waiting to hear on two schools that I would be very happy with" that is what I would pick.

I've got some serious avatar-envy going on here, I can't believe so many people already know where they're going. These are Round 2 decisions I'm waiting on, guess the schools I applied to happen to have some of the later decision dates.

Despite the dissatisfied votes, it's pretty great that 45% of people are saying they got into their dream-school.

I second Johnny's suggestion, of adding a 'still waiting' option.

GMAT Club has been a sweet and sour ride for me these days. While I am extremely please that so many of GMAT Clubbers have gotten into dream schools, I am bummed out that I dont have an admit yet.

But, I am hopefull that my non-avtar status changes soon!
