I heard from a current student that all who are lucky to get scholarship will be called on 17th...and remaining not so lucky, but yet fortunate on 18th... But..major calls will go out on 18th only...so dont lose heart in case you dont hear on 17th


I don't know whether I believe that. Everyone last year reported dings at 9 am on decision day that did not get an admit the day before. If I do not get a call today/tom , I will be going to bed tom night thinking I got rejected


Same here terp. Only reason to think otherwise is if the only GMATClub admits posted tomorrow are admits w/ $$$. If we see a bunch of regular admits today/tomorrow - I'm going to go to bed tomorrow defeated.

I doubt there will be any dings today...those happen thursday.


I am trying to believe in the power of the FAIRIES!!!

i.e. - (already know that dings arent arriving today) However, if I do pray and dings don't arrive - it works as if fairies do exist and my wishes are coming true.

So tomorrow, using the same logic - I can ask for admit and maybe, and MAYBE, I will get good news.... :oops:

While we're waiting, let's give a hand to Chicago's two notification dates (mid-decision and final) and relatively prompt decision-making process. A welcome contrast to the "we extend interviews until the end of January" nonsense at other schools!

Chicago is the most professional school I have dealt with thus far in the admissions process.

Definitely agree. Also the most welcoming. Other schools' visit programs simply don't compare to GSB Live.

Just passing here to wish good luck to everybody.

I will be traveling the next days taking advantage of my winter break here in the warm in rainy Brazil, so I most likely won't be able to see here the results. Anyway, I'm rooting for you guys!

No. Tomorrow.

By the way, everything will be posted by 9AM CT on Thursday. I just called admissions and they confirmed. It's not 5PM, it's all done at 9AM.

hey - just a random question - I was checking my status on the GSB website and noticed that recommendation verified is a NO. Is that true for others? Just wondering since everything else has been verified.

Just read last year's thread, starting on the night before calls and going through the day of calls. Very interesting & fun to read. They were just as nervous as we are. Also, it's good to see that they didn't start calling until a little after 2pm, EST. So not getting a call by 11am is not necessarily a bad sign.

Here's the thread (starting with the day before): http://gmatclub.com/forum/103-t48955?sk=t&sd=a&start=760

Best of luck to everyone!
