Rhyme,

Congrats! Chicago is a great school! I hope you stay around on this forum. You've been a tremendous help for so many people here. I think you need to go out and truly celebrate (like get wasted with your friends)! You don't get admitted to a top school too many times in your life...

Go get sloshed man... Why would u want to degrees from the same institution?

Besides now u can hit on NW undergrads without being concerned about being harassed by the school admin!

Always look at the brighter side - so go and have fun!

Congrats Rhyme. That's amazing persistence. I guess having failed to grab you, it's Kellog's log and GSB's gain. Anyway, it is often argued that GSB is better than Kellog- so you can laugh about it.

I do hope that you will continue to post on this board and help others, even though now the process is over for you

Sorry to hear that Rhyme but you must be a little glad you were informed sooner rather than later. The most important part in all of this now is CLOSURE. You now know where you're going. You can start planning things. You can start talking to your fellow GSBers as real classmates rather than potential ones.

I'm sure THAT must be good and I can't wait to get there.

Thanks for the kind words everyone... you are all truly amazing people. I hope I find the same kind of camaderie at bschool as I've found here. It pains me to know that there are so many of you I will never meet, but maybe I can convince some of you to come down to the bahamas this summer.

Yea seriously. Feels like so much work for the privilege of doing more work!

"Why thank you sir, I really enjoyed those 412 days of agony, can I have more?"
"Most certainly, here you go!"
