Guys,

Does anybody have a back up in case HBS doesn't work out?? I mean...everybody is treating this as a life or death situation....


Backups are for wimps. (Kidding)


LOL!

as you can see, no backup. Life or death, baby.

Of course it's not so much "Life" or "death" as it is "life with epic snob appeal" or "life" :)

I have a pretty solid backup plan. If it's not HBS, it'll be Booth with a $25k / yr scholarship or MIT. Still waiting for HBS, although the money is PRETTY tempting ......

Good luck to all !

Is there a reason you have chosen to make this worse for yourself. Sadist much?

I think "masochist" is the word you're looking for. And yes, he probably is :wink:

I'm an older applicant that is not in Finance. Bschool isn't necessarily the right move for me, so I went all or nothing. :p

I was in a meeting when they released R1 decisions, but I finally returned to my desk and logged into my account. I click on the "your decision is now available link" and as the page pops up and loads, some guy walks in to discuss some work issues.

I had the letter sitting up on my screen but couldn't see it while this guy was rambling on for a few minutes about God knows what.

Moral of the story: make sure you have at least a few minutes of alone time.

I think you will get in...I hope I;m not jinxing...well it's already too late for me to jinx because your decision has been made...Anyway, the 1-school strategy works, esp. if u mentioned in interview. Good luck!

they never asked "where else are you applying?" or anything that could lead to it...probably because they would think "why is this man applying to ANY business school? :roll: "

Must have been a really special application ...... R3 is very tough to get into and you must be really lucky.
