[quote="JellyBean10"]Got an invite yesterday (at roughly 10am PST).

I know a lot of people have been waiting to hear if there were any invites out to non-consulting/non-Americas, so both apply to me.. (EMEA, Tech)

Good luck everyone![/quote]

Is the applications status 'Under review' for most of you guys ? Mine has been 'Under review for almost 2 weeks now and no comms"

Yeah same for me 'in review' until they invite us to interview, then it will state 'interview'... Hang in there!

Oh wow good luck!!! What did you do this year to improve your application? Did you get in anywhere else last year to dismiss doubts? I read a lot about reapplication strategy in that if anyone reapplies, the school might think 'oh they didn't get in anywhere...' And so it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. 2 years of waiting is a long time so kudos to you!!!

Is your strategy diff this year? You changed to industry...was that your post MBA goal? If so, did you already successfully achieve it?

Good luck and we might ask you questions as we go along!


Sorry for the tardy response my friend. ;p Some quick responses to your questions:

1. I think my profile improved vs. last year, both professionally and personally. I didn't do anything specific for b sch app - things happen as a result of me just doing what I do, really.
2. Only applied to HBS and GSB last year - didn't get in. It was a "testing the water" round.
3. I don't have a strategy - for me it's about telling the right story. With the extra year, I have now developed fresh perspectives on life and work, and that could be helpful.
4. I'm returning to current industry post MBA as a sponsored candidate. Btw, I already worked in an industry role prior to applying last year - apologies for the miscommunication.
5. RE your PM, I can't say for now since I need to complete campus visits first. :)

Good luck to you too!

Well...I think http://blog.clearadmit.com/livewire/ is a good indicator since last week when they came out we saw some updates...but again those are the only resources we have... We really should have a site that aggregates all the data :P
