Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
This thread has really unnerved me..seems like nothing really gurantees you a spot in the top ten ! Out of morbid curiosity..How did recommenders react to dings ? Did supervisors just say-its ok , get back to work now ? Thats one of my major fears before i approach recommenders in my company. what if i go through this whole process..and then I get rejected everywhere ?!
Well, I continue to remain a solid member of this club. I just checked my status on the Chicago WL and I continue to stay on the Waitlist. Now, they are going to release decisions every two weeks starting Wednesday, May 28th. So, the waiting continues.
Anyone else heard anything from their respective waitlists. Good luck to all!
definitely apply to a "safety" school that you will go to if that's the only school you got into. If such a school doesn't exist, then be prepared to re-apply again next year if this year doens't work out...
or in my case, apply to several safety schools and a safety school for the safety schools :D.
Bung in a few lottery applications as well.. and that was my application gamble
I feel your pain everyone. But it's good to have this thread and self reflect so you can succeed next year! I also wish that the W/L folks get in later on.
But keep at it. Like Helg said, he survived 4 dings and turned it into a GSB admit! That sort of success story should be your inspiration and motivation.
I will definitely be around next year, and for you guys, I will help you review some essays and give pointers (for however much it's worth). If any of you are applying to Haas, Anderson, or Kellogg, I can definitely let you know what I thought were important. And whether I end up at Haas or Kellogg, I'll definitely try to pass on some "insider" info too, just to get you all in.
Keep at it, and PLEASE stay around the forums so we can help you out. One admit, that's all you need.
link please! need to get inspired! _________________

Thanks guys, I'm still waitlisted at LBS. Retaking the GMAT mid-june, maybe a higher score there will help LBS make up its mind. If not, I am mentally prepared to app across the board next year; hopefully with better essays.
Hey BSD, great thread. I see that you are an Aussie too - anyway, just wondering whether you wanted to get in contact and trade notes for the application season this year. I am applying in secret, as I am a career changer and don't want my work to know about it, and would love to have someone whom I can talk about with the apps process.
By the way, I know people always like to know, so here are my stats.
GMAT: 770 Yrs Experience: 7 at the end of 2008 Age: 29
Wishing everyone the very best in their apps.
