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:
Yeah .. I'm waiting to get an admit too. Unfortunately I only submitted 2 apps in R1 and 2 in R2 .. so although I've seen only 1 ding so far .. it still feels as if I've been dinged by every school while others are getting admits.
Look at the success story of helg. Look at how prasad must have been feeling just before getting the Ross admit. Look at shmegs who got dings from everywhere and suddenly got an admit from Wharton to make those dings pretty much meaningless. Have patience, my boy! Your turn will also come.
And it's better to go to B-school after desperately waiting to get an admit rather than getting admits early in the game. If you apply to H/K/W in R1, and get admits everywhere, then by the time you matriculate, your head will be so far up your "That-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named" that you will become the exact reason why recruiters and general public denounce top-school MBAs.
Thrilled to see a thread where I really feel a sense of belonging. Maybe we should have a little game of who can explain their situation that makes one's heart melt or get a good laugh... I guess 2 kudos is a fair reward !!!!
What can I say about my state....applied to 2 schools in R1 (CMU and Darden)...CMU's WL message roughly translates to "I am kind of interested in you and what you have to say...but you need to show me some more love.....and in fewer crisp sentences, if you can please! Meanwhile let me look around."
Since I didn't get ANY response from Darden, I kinda get the message like..."Hmm...so you are an Indian...and that too in IT....Wow, what ana amzing coincidence ! Hope we never meet again !!" _________________
