Looks like the wave for today went out already, all foreign students it appears. Congrats everyone. I'm guessing based on past rounds that there's going to be a very small group of invites tomorrow and then dings friday. Not looking like there's a ton of invites left to go out, hopefully I'm wrong.


Depending on where you look, it appears a decent number of domestic invites still went out on the last day of Round 2 last year. Now, it may not be as many as other days but I don't think I'd count it out just yet. Best of luck and fingers crossed still to you!


Thanks.

I just did some research and some beer-math and based on the past couple years' round 1 and 2 invites there are still 33%-50% of invites still to go out.

Of course this is based on the assumption that the numbers on the livewire are accurate, so by no means scientific. But those of us that still haven't received an invite, there's still hope. We've got probably another batch tomorrow and very small few on Friday I'd imagine.

I wander, how the priority of sending the emails is defined. Why not to send all the inteview invites at once (assumng there are no infrastructure issues, which I doubt)?

maybe school enjoys the high volume traffic on their web site these days:-) I also find the process a bit frustrating, although better than in GSB (waiting over the months of rolling invites).


Seemingly so :-) GSB's policy seems a bit fair to me, at least it's on "first come, first served" basis. This one is a reverse first come first served, assuming the comment above :-)

Although GSB requires you to experience the same process, but over the longer period with hope in your heart till the last day, which is cruel;-)

What are the approximate chances of getting accepted if you have a R2 interview? 50/50ish?

If anyone has selected to interview on Feb 22nd or 23rd (last 2 days offered) and would like to share a hotel room please let me know - females only! I booked a room at the Aloft Chicago City Center which is about 20-25 mins away by car. I can change the room type to a double if there's anyone interested! DM me please.

Got my interview invite at around 6pm EST today!

What a turn-around! After no interviews at 4 of 5 schools in Rd1 (and a ding post-interview at the last), I'm batting 4 for 4 so far in Rd2!

Aww, here's the downside of a Day 3 invite: the Booth Live Day Feb 16th is all booked up. Too bad.

So happy for you, Filthy! But you know, with your great stats/work experience/story I really didn't have any doubt.

Nothing for me, and I'm not feeling very hopeful. Ah well. I knew I was pushing it with the age thing, but I still had to try.

I hope you make it!
