I think that they will be rolling out the admits on Friday! Not many have received an admit in round 2 which is supposedly the most favoured round. Don't lose hope. Good luck to all! :)

There were about 91 admits in Round 1... whereas on this forum it shows about 12-14 people only. So there is def a possibility that they might roll out admits tomorrow as well. Though I don't know why they would keep a week long gap between 2 waives of admit decisions... but here's hoping for the best and good luck to you all!

They will definitely roll out more admits either today or tomorrow! I think it simply means that they haven't gone through all the applications yet as they have the a large number of them in R2. Not sure why some of you guys think that to wait longer means negative results. If we all are going to be dinged or waitlisted, they could've done that too last week together with the admits. There is no point of selectively separating the WLs and dings till the end just to make us wait and suffer longer.

Simply, they just haven't made all the decisions yet. I hate the wait too but yeah nothing we can do...

Hey, well going through round 1 and last years trend it seems like they released admits a few days before the deadline and only people waitlisted or dinged got their decisions on the final deadline date. That's probably why all of us who haven't heard back are being a little negative about the situation. But I hope you are right my friend :)

At the end of my interview the interviewer told that they will try to give admits starting end of February and by March 4, the decision deadline, results will be out.
In any case, it is always exciting, holding on to the nerves.
And I am just wondering if there would be any Scholarship add-on for feb 26th release of admits compared to Mar 4th admits. 8-) :?:

I see... But I think we have to realize that people who are active in GMAT club is a small minority only. There were 91 admits but only 12 reported here! Besides, people who get the admits early are usually more excited in sharing the news too. Somehow, I'm pretty sure there will be more admits. Cheer up everyone :)

Just pray that you won't see " An Update has been made to your BU MBA Application..." which would mean not so good news ;)
And in my case, my ride depends on the scholarship as well. Going by what mba87 has to say, I am getting more interested.
So, we can probably define the trend for future applicants by knowing if any one of us gets an admit tomorrow.
What do you say greenzie

Considering that I haven't been offered an interview at this point, do you all think it's safe to assume I'm out? How many of you have received interviews but are still waiting for notification tomorrow?

I completely understand your guys fears of results because I have the same issue with other schools I have apped to. For many schools I have not been waitlisted dinged nor invited so I am floating in limbo as well. In terms of scholarships, I think you guys are still in a good spot because I have received a bunch of emails from schools that I have started applications for back in December but never submitted and a lot of schools are saying that plenty of scholarships are still available. So assuming they are being truthful it seems it is definitely not too late for funding. Anyways good luck to all I know the next 24 hours or so will be very stressful.

Good luck to all of us guys! Less than 24h to go...

alannap, yes unfortunately I think you should let it go.They won't admit people without interview I think and there is no way they're doing the interview on the day of announcement deadline. I'd say in general if it's already the announcement deadline week and you still haven't been invited, I's let it go if I were you.

alannap I think the only thing that can happen in your favour now is that you getting a waitlist. Thought sometimes it is more cruel than a ding - Trust me.

I hope there will be someone with admit, otherwise, it really doesnt make sense to announce the WL and dings one week after the others...
