No news seems to be good news right now. They seem to be sending out dings first!

So it's probably a good sign to not get anything yet....

That's my bottle of beer talking by the way........

Also subject to verification, a poster on BusinessWeek just reported receiving an offer: http://forums.businessweek.com/n/pfx/fo ... &tid=83461

Good luck!

Hi,

I have been following this thread for a long time but didn't want to post anything until I had heard back from the school.

Unfortunately, it is not good news. I got a ding as well.

I thought I had a good profile - 7-8 years work-ex in a top global IT company, lived and worked in 3 different countries, plenty of leadership experience, GMAT just below 700, UG degree from a top 20 business school. I had a very good interview too. Right now, I'm scratching my head thinking what else the school expects. Overall, it has been a great learning process, excruciating at times, but this thread has made it easier in many ways (knowing that there are others in the same boat).

I wish all the successful admits the best, if you've made it through this then you must be truly special. :-)

Thanks again for sharing all your stories.

Ding for me too. I somehow had intuition for this. But will be going to IESE now.

Just received my Admitted email at 10:58pm London time!!! So relieved after an entirely sleepless night.

It's unfortunate to see so many solid candidates dinged. Wishing you all the best with your other applications. Also a big thank you to those who have contributed to this thread.

Waitlisted :-(

I really wanted a yes or no. Getting waitlisted extends the painful wait endlessly (without much hope). Anyway, wish all of you good luck.

Thanks everyone for your support and help. It has been wonderful interacting with fellas here.

Best of luck to everyone!

Mine says same May 14th. Painful wait starts again and I guess it won't end on May 14th but may drag on and on.
