I know it sounds horrible when the calls start going out but keep your hopes up. I think you've a great attitude towards this MBA process and life in general and it reflects in your posts. You've cheered a lot of us up so I'm sure the fortune would favour you.

Also, you have an admit from KFBS which is something that more than 95% of the MBA seeking crowd would love to have so you've reasons to rejoice regardless of what happens at Jones.

Hey RF20, thanks for the kind words, they mean a lot.
I agree it is just a process and keeping a sane mind is all that we can do at this stage. You are also correct in saying that having an admit from KFBS means I have something to fall back on. And it is.
Karma is something I do believe in, but wouldn't know how they work. If my past posts helped others, it was only an attempt in the direction that I'd have loved to hear - had I been in their position, what I said to others. So, that's all I did.
Let's see. Keeping fingers crossed.
Thanks again.

I'm hopeful for you and hope to see you in Houston; you're obviously thoughtful and Rice sounds like a personal fit. No matter the outcome, you've got an attitude for success and you're going to forge a path toward your goals. I'm keeping the positive vibes alive toward good news!

Congratulation to all the aspirants who made it

This waiting thing is really nerve-wracking. With each passing day, positivity is taking a step back, and negativity is expanding its footprint in my mind :(
