Guys, I just read on the internet.
Our dear friend nyama, being the most impressive applicant Ross has ever seen, received an offer of admission 3 weeks earlier than everyone else. Soojin Kwon traveled a long way to extend the offer in person.
Unfortunately, Ross won't have the honor to have nyama as a student.
The Vatican just released the news today. The Pope resigned because His Holiness felt he was no longer the man for the job. Nyama will be moving to Rome in the fall.

We here at GMAT Club wish nyama the best of luck in this new blessed endeavour.

From now on, it's a sin to make fun of nyama, ok guys? Be careful, or you might end up in hell!


:)! Being the CEO of the Vatican and 1 billion followers, i think i can handle that!! Thankful to the adcom people for calling me with an acceptance offer three weeks in advance!! I'm now negotiating with the dean and the regents, for the school to give me my MBA now, since for a brilliant person like me, there is no need to spend two years at the school!

On a serious note though, the admission rate out of the interviewed people, depends on various factors i would conjecture. ie, the region where the applicant is applying from. Although the average could hover around 45-70% as explained above by others, for the few of us applying from Malenasia (Vanuatu, specifically), the acceptance rate could actually be 100% :)! Of course, if they add my file to be part of the Asia group on the other hand, the rate plummets to below 10% of the interviewed applicants....

...just pure speculation, trying to make myself feel better!

I look forward to the weekends, two days away from the computer and not thinking about it.

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!

I think I misunderstood what I read on her blog.
On 2/26, the director of admissions said that she would be receiving the comments of her admissions associate directors by that weekend (what would be 3/1) and she would revise on that weekend and forward her comments so the associate dean could release the final decisions by the end of next week (on my maths, it's 3/8).
Quote:
they can stay on track with getting their recommendations to me by the end of the week. I'll review and revise decisions over the weekend and hand them over to the Associate Dean for final approval by the end of next week.


Am I correct?

However, later in this post, she mentions a more precise date. Maybe I'm freaking you guys with this, sorry!

The team and I are looking forward to welcoming a new group of students into our community on March 15

Stop trying to read into it. If Soojin says March 15 is when they'll welcome new students, then that's when they will. The internal timeline leading up to it doesn't affect you.

Hey, I submitted my Ross application today 30 mins before R3 deadline.

I hope they consider online recommendation letters sent a few hours after the deadline

Maybe it's for the best you didn't. It could have been a huge waste of money, because you'd probably be at some great beach wondering if you were going to be admitted... lol

That's probably true :twisted: :twisted:

I will officially be doing practically nothing at work for the next 8-10 days (at least for Ross and Tuck) and most likely 14 for Fuqua.

Sorry boss.

Haha, I feel the same way. It doesn't help that I have one acceptance, so my boss knows I'm leaving for sure. Naturally I'm a bit less motivated, but they are giving me less work to do because of it as well.

Now I have very little to do at work AND little motivation to do it. I've really got to close GMAT Club and my email at work if I'm going to have any shot at productivity.
