One of my acquaintance in India got an admit today through a phone call. So I guess Indian admits should get decisions today.

In for round 2. Spoke with Paige Goodson with the admissions team today about the program, admissions and career prospects. Really positive and enlightening interaction. I will be retaking the GMAT in January and updating my completed application with the (hopefully) better test score once that happens.

Does anyone have any insightful information for application essays or specific sections of the applications? I saw there are sections to enter awards and extracurricular activities, does anyone have any advice for what to add to that to strengthen the application? Thanks ahead of time.

Quite a lot of people have got the calls for admits yesterday and day before yesterday. Yesterday few people have got dings too. Today is the official decision release date. Going by last year's trend, people who have not received the decision yet should not lose hope.
