Decision date on their website is 5th April. Are the decisions rolling??



Yeah.
I wonder that too.

One post and I may think it off as a troll / prank. But when that number increases, seems fishy but still raises anxiety!!

There are already two posts on GMAT club. With the class size of Jones, that's nearly 2% of the total class.



Yeah, it is gathering momentum.
I'll reach out to my AdCom contact / reviewer of my file and see if I get any response. Seems too early. If this was about 4-5 days before decision date, I'd have lent it more credibility (not to discredit who posted there - but you know we all here are pretty anxious so...).

Congratulations!!

I see you are admitted to Tuck too!! A wonderful school - have been to both schools.
I made a monumental blunder with Jones - so let's see how severe penalty I get. And I am WL at Tuck.

What are your thoughts? Where will you go and why?
Can I ask you about your background industry, plans, etc?

see my prior post about my background, but i am unsure of what i want to do specifically in tech, but i want to pivot into the tech industry in a business development type role

Since Tuck gave me a full scholarship, there's a good chance i end up there

Full Scholarship at Tuck - no brainer!! Of course that is where I'd go, if I were in your shoes.
All the best.

Did everyone get the handwritten note after interview or just the people who are admitted?

Admitted today with scholarship.

Applied 1/9. Interviewed 2/3. Admitted 3/13.
US Citizen
32 at beginning of Fall Semester
9 years WE (military/steel industry)
2.97 GPA from liberal arts school (graduating class in 400s)
710 GMAT

Part of me thought I didn't have a chance of admission when I started this journey last year, so don't give up if you didn't receive a call today. Congratulations to all those admitted and good luck to those still waiting.
