I am in @ Duke and waiting on UCLA. I loved my visit to Fuqua and will be happy to attend. I only applied to 3 schools that I would love to attend.

R2 applicants, the interview calls start from tomorrow! Hope everyone is ready with thick diapers, as the interview calls will continue until 2/15.

My status changed to 'Complete for Round 2' a few days ago. The status also states that it has not received the official GMAT scores. I am sure that I selected Wharton during my test....I will be pissed if mba.com requires me to pay again.

I think it takes some time for the AdCom to put together the info they receive from various sources. Hope you will not have to pay twice.
