How many R1ers think that the Adcom are quietly comparing R1 and R2 applicants before finalizing admits?


You really think so? Most people would have submitted pretty close to the Jan 3rd Deadline. So that gives them about 10 days (including weekends) before the decision date. I think that is not enough time to effectively go through the R-2 applications, pick out the ones they would like to invite to interview, compare them against R-1 applicants who have been interviewed and then make a decision for R-1. At most, I believe they might use this time to decide between admit/waitlist for a few strong applicants who have a common background (e.g. Indian I.T). I definitely do not think that the Adcom is using this time to decide between Admit/Reject based on the strength of the R-2 applicants.

KK i think most schools tend to compare the 'stats' of the two rounds. So lets say they are on the border on a R1 applicant, say Indian, who has a high GMAT and not in IT, they might want to see if there are a lot more applicants in R2 who fall in that bucket. If there are, they might just WL him and compare the rest. I dont think they will read the essays but just the overall stats.

Lets stop this speculation. Frankly its not going to get us anywhere and only make us more nervous. Lets just hope we all end up in one of the schools we applied to.

I believe this might be the case, since GMATClubbers represent the stronger side of applicants pool, and stronger applicants tend to apply in earlier rounds :wink:

Not to make anyone nervous but someone on BW reported an admit call!
My guess is, most of the admits should hear from Ross some time this week.

Nervous- if you are referring to this post, then I believe you got punk'd :). The guy was just goofing around and seems to be a current b-school student.

I do think though that the admit calls should be going out sometime over the next couple of days.

I have been pretty anxious about the Ross decision. Judging from the reaction to the post on BW, I guess I am not the only one. A few more days guys, hang in there...

I dont trust BW info much..someone earlier had played a joke about admit call

I would personally be surprised to hear of interview invites for R2 applicants when R1 decisions are around the corner

lol. I hear what you are saying.

Some of those posters there seem to relish playing with people's emotions. That said, even the early R1 invites came out real quick. I think clobo got his invite within a week after submitting.

Todoornot- I did check the online interview scheduling website and they do have dates starting from the 14th. It was not the case earlier this week.
