Any Indian admits so far?

Would be interested to know their profiles and their success story

Edit: Indian - Any one holding Indian Passport - Indian citizens(with no GC/dual citizenship)

I dont think there are any Indian admits here, except svrider for the 1 year program at Cornell. Most desis who have been admitted so far are US/Canadian - Indian folks who dont fall under the "International" pool.

Quite a few (I am counting Indian Americans in the mix too). I think that if we can keep this thread alive till the end of the app season, we'll get to see some very interesting results about Indian applicants from various backgrounds and their successes in various schools.

EDIT: Sorry, after seeing prasad's reply, I understand that we are talking about Indian citizens only. In that case, I don't know if anyone got an admit yet. I am sure some will get admits (Hopefully including me) by the end of R2. In fact I am still keeping my hopes alive for my Columbia application (I should get a result around 9th Jan).

I have spoken to some of my friends who had applied to W/Chic in R1. They all have pretty impressive profiles- and surprisingly, most of them have been WLed at both the places. Its almost as if all schools decided to filter out the weaker candidates and evaluate the rest of the desi's together with R2. In a way, it does not seem that there is any difference to a desi whether he applied in R1 or R2.

I am just surprised to see not one Indian born desi, Indian citizen desi get admitted into Chic or W.

mNeo, I think we should keep out Indian American etc out of this analysis. These folks fall under the US citizen pool and not under the International pool. The admit rates are definitely different.

I am very keen to see how many Indian citizens(with no GC/dual citizenship) get into the UE/elite schools. In fact, I have never seen anyone from GMAT club who meets this criterion get into a UE.

Hmm, Should have thought about this before applying to HBS and MIT.

EDIT:I see that mNeo has edited his post. Still, I will leave my response as it is for reference purposes.

Great point pc..but I was going through last years posts and I dont think there were many Desi's on this forum. Necromonger (?) was probably one of the few active members here who was desi (and he is in at INSEAD). So this year, we see a lot more desi's, so we might start the trend of getting admitted into UE/E :)

Just to give you an idea of the situation at my end- the company I used to work for before is a great feeder to GSB- it takes in about 5 students every year from there (and mostly desi's). I know a bunch of my friends who are applying in R2 but a couple of them applied in R1 as well. We were wondering if them getting admitted would mean lesser chances for us.

Yes its a bad situation as far as Indian applicants are concerned. More Indians are applying directly from India in the last few years. I know a few Indians, who converted to Singapore citizenship got admissions in UE schools. dosa and prasad, I hope Ross gives us some love.

I just got into WH. Orignally from Bombay, have been in the US for about 8 years now.

I must say, its a relief that this crazy process is finally over (I was a re-app to WH).
