Where are you guys with R2? [#permalink] New post 06 Dec 2007, 23:19
It is not very comforting to hear that a lot of us slackers are still only getting started on the R2 applications. Successes of riverripper and mba2010 (Who have already started enjoying life .. and have no reason to think R2) aren't helping either. Anyway, now that I'm back in application mold (It was tough), I was wondering where exactly my buddies were with the R2 apps. So .. where are you? How did your school portfolio change? How did your schedule change? How did your application strategy change?

As for me, I am trying to finish the first draft of the H application by the next weekend and spend the rest of the month on one more school. Which school? I really don't know.

I'm finishing up my GSB app. Will spend the next week on H and Ross. I'm aiming to submit before Christmas...honestly it is incredibly hard to get back into essay mode. I should have just kept going after R1 deadlines...

Well, one thing that I am going to recommend to every applicant of next year is that they should NOT take a break between R1 and R2. If you take a break, say bye-bye to half of your R2 plans.

I couldn't agree more. Also tell your recommenders where you will be applying in R2, even if you change your mind they will know approximate dates and will be ready.

yeah, same problem here. Really having a hard time finding motivation to do Kellogg in R2. Especially after finding out that Kellogg announces so early for R1, I'm kicking myself for not giving me a chance to find out earlier for Kellogg. But alas, there was no way I could have finished Kellogg because of how much time the Stanford app took. Probably wasted effort too considering still no interview from Stanford. oh well.

But yeah, I thought I would feel refreshed to do just ONE app for R2, but right now with the Holidays, coming back from vacation, and all that, I haven't even touched my Kellogg app. I guess the only comforting thing is that all I need to do are the essays. The application has been filled out completely back in October, all my recommenders know I'm applying to Kellogg and have most of the questions answered from my previous 3 schools, and I can use the same resume. Just need to start writing... ugh!

I’ve officially burnt out (is that the right expression, right?)
I still have yet 2 applications (hopefully, if panic does not get me) I see the days passing by and I just can’t concentrate. Work is hard, my manager is throwing me loads of things to do and I will have between Xmas and New Years Eve vacation, though I know it’s going to be hard to make anything as I’m planning to be with family.

I'm only doing Chicago GSB. Decided not to apply anywhere else. Not my backup schools either. It's either Chicago or nothing. A bit silly. But circumstance had changed :(

Procrastination [#permalink] New post 07 Dec 2007, 05:33
I'm dying with my R2 applications... While I'm spending plenty of time "brainstorming" my essay ideas, I need to get down and start cranking out my HBS and Kellogg apps. I've done about 2 of the HBS essays, which leaves me 3 essays for HBS and 5 for Kellogg.

Going to be a fantastic holiday!

Almost done w/Berkeley...need to dive into Columbia and brainstorm for Stanford. Considering adding Wharton to the mix - not convinced they have a lot to offer in terms of media electives, etc, but you can't beat their core curriculum. I would certainly get the grounding in business fundamentals I want.
So that's where I am.

Complete burnout!
i wasted the entire month of Nov.
I just hope to get a nice call from the GSB adcom on the 19th, so that I dont have to apply to Kellogg.

Almost done with Kellogg, hopefully will be done with Chicago within a week. Then I have a 2 weeks vacation to polish these and maybe add another one, if I decide it is worth it to apply outside Chicago next year. If I do not apply anywhere else, I will be taking a huge risk of not getting into b-school in 2008... But at the same time, my wife just took the Illinois bar, and it wouldn't be "nice" to make her move next year...

By the way, I found out yesterday that my TOEFL score was expired :roll: . I managed to find the only spot left in Paris before the applications deadlines, and will be taking it tomorrow...

Guess we re all in same boat. just started my Duke essays while Ross and kellogg are put on hold. It would be nice to at least get an interview from one of the schools I apply in R1. That definitely will keep me moving.

Stanford - Done, waiting on recommenders
Chicago - Done except PPT, also waiting on recommenders
Harvard - Essays 90% done, just in fine tuning mode
UCLA - Essays 60% done, don't like them much yet

I never took a break. Having only applied to two schools in R1, I couldn't afford to. Of course, only UCLA is really realistic for R2, so who knows.

Didn't you apply to Tuck and Columbia in R1? Did you get results from them?
