I find the time goes quickly over the weekends when I'm wasting money at bars...

Perhaps I should just become a functional alcoholic for the next 9 days and skip some work!

This waiting, i run the clock down by writing papers (yep, in school!) and going to work. I have become a zombie, waiting for March 15. In my moments of clarity, i do calculations...like this one from yesterday:

A = [(F * I) - (B /D) + r*z -m]*(v-y)

Where,
m = temp in AA last week when decisions were made
z = applicants wishing to be consultants
r = marketing applicants invited to interview
v = unknown negative factors
y = luck
A = probability of getting in
F = total applicants
I = total interview invites
B= black belt owners
D = applicants who played chase and volunteered when they were undergrads


Nice attempt to mislead stressed out people.
You need to factor in the Eulers constant to get an accurate analysis!!!

Hi guys! Any R3 applicants here? :o)


Yup. Soon all the people stressing out on these pages can laugh at us as we stress out in the coming months. I've been hearing mixed reviews on final round acceptance chances but I'm hoping for the best. Anyways good luck partner.


Haha! Good luck to you too rexman! I'm an international applicant, applying in R3 so the odds are heavily against me. I did have a convincing reason as to why I had to apply in R3 though. Lets hope the Admissions Gods smile down on us. They wouldn't *have* a Round 3 if they didn't want to accept just a few more of us, right? (I'm the glass-half-full sort)

You have to love the transparency of their admissions process.


US Applicants to receive calls next week on Tuesday and Wednesday (12th and 13th).

International Applicants on Thursday (14th).


Good luck all!

Does this mean that if i don't get a call on the 14th i am a goner? I am an international student. The email I got said that admissions will be posted on 12 EST on the 15th?


Yeah I do think it means you are wait listed or dinged generally if you don't get a call on the 14th. I also love the transparency, but it makes me anxious to know that if I don't get a call on Tuesday (I live in LA) I am toast. Really really hoping I get the call...

Per the blog:

Quote:
"The plan is for all decisions to be final by Monday. Admit calls will begin on Tuesday, March 12. Regarding the sequence of the calls, we're going to prioritize calls to candidates in U.S. cities in which we'll be hosting admitted student events beginning March 16 and through the following week: NY, DC, Boston, Chicago, San Fran, LA. We'll share details about dates/times via the calls and follow-up emails. Admits in other U.S. cities will be called on March 12-13, and international students will be contacted on March 14. "


I wonder if we can take this to mean that if we live in one of the above-named cities and are not called on the 12th, we're either dinged or WL'ed. If so, this effectively moves my decision notification date to Tuesday as I'm in one of those cities! :shock:

Definitely going to need to take a Xanax on Monday night to get to (and stay) asleep

Yeah I think us R3 applicants are laying low until after the dust settles for round 2 lol. I've received an interview invite but if you haven't I wouldn't start worrying quite yet punters. Still a long way to go and we have no idea how they're handling the R3 applicant pool.

Dammit I have a noon meeting! NOOO!!! I think I should call in sick...

That seems rash. Move the meeting? excuse yourself? or change your voicemail to give some information like "You've reached xxx, Its march 12th and i'll be in meetings until 1pm and available afterwards"

a missed call would be a great sign


naww skip the meeting and go to the bar (are you around the Pittsburgh area..I'll join you)


I've been useless in the office for the past week so skipping a day wouldn't be terrible :P

This process has drained me.

-8:37 Eastern, three hours to go before the calls start going out?
-Called off sick at work yesterday. Went to the city, watched, '21 and over'. Did other crazy stuff for the sudden off day.
-Now, 7am CST, still up.
-deleted
-deleted
-Good luck to everyone. Like me, have faith.

*Deleted, the personal stuff. Remember Nyama, brutally honest.

Good luck today, everyone! And as tempting as it is, try not to over-think what it means if you do not hear from the admissions committee today. I received admittance to another school last month where calls began going out on Monday and I didn't receive my call until about 3PM on Wednesday. I was a complete Negative Nancy for 48-hours and felt a little silly about it afterward.

Think positive and I hope everyone gets good news this week!

Lol, I just saw one of the admissions officers in the hallway, clearly not making phone calls.


Can you check if they are running late and ask them when they are going to calls us :)


LOL- I have to run to a meeting about MAP- maybe afterwards ill stalk Soojin and be like "whats up with the phone calls?"--
