Contingency plan is Darden. I went to the admit weekend last weekend. It was pretty darn nice and I gotta say, with the costs of going to LBS vs Darden, even if I get in LBS, Darden won't be something to scoff at.

Darden's a great program... unfortunately i'm unable to squeeze in that application for 2012... maybe next year, 2013.

thanks lakai - waiting for your response.

All,

I called LBS today and asked the question I emailed them about (are we going to hear anything on Friday?)

The answer is Yes we will. Everyone will receive a response of either Congrats your off the list and admitted, Sorry but you're still on the list, and Sucks to be you, you're Rejected.

To me, this is actually very good news. I hate being on this list and I'm really looking forward to receiving some closure on Friday. If I don't make the cut, them I'm taking myself off the list.

Good luck to everyone here wearing away our nails waiting for LBS.

Sorry to throw cold water on your hopes lakai - from my experience, the "real" movement will occur in June. Another month to go :( . The most likely response will be "Sorry but you're still on the list". I think it depends on the the big deposit day payment. Most people commit one way or the other when they pay the 6000 bucks.

2 more days to go. Has LBS indicated the amounts for the Commitment Fee and Reservation Fee? Last year, the Commitment Fee was GBP 1500.

well, no movement for me either. Am still on the waitlist. WTF? The wait is annoying... I wish they would say yes or no sooner, just so I can get on with my plans.

Lakai: chances are pretty high that I will be joining you in Darden at this rate, although I am not taking myself out of the list just yet.

Good luck to us all!

Re-waitlisted. Hope that we'll get affirmative answers at the next WL review.

It seems not - no movement neither on the BW forum.
