Thanks guys.

I have yet to make a decision and will have to weigh my other school choices (if I get accepted anywhere else) in addition to going to admit weekends, comparing cost, academics, location, etc. Not going to be easy that's for sure...

So we've had a few calls, but not many, between here and BW. Given this, as well as the fact that the bulk of calls came after 2pm EST last year, my guess is that we'll see many more this afternoon.

Who's with me?!

Congrats to you all....

Once you come down from your high, I would love to get some advice from you on your slideshow approach. The amount of pictures you used compared to the amount of text, etc...

I hope so! Congratulations to everybody whose gotten a call so far.

Dumb question- not totally familiar with Booth admissions process. Do they call everybody today who has an admit generally?

I am 100% with you!!!!!! We should have another 5-6 from GMATClub, if we assume at least a 30% admit rate after interview.

Why so few calls? I wonder what differentiates those who received early calls, and others who will get called this afternoon?

They could have easily released all the admissions together online and spared us of this heartache.

I don't know but it makes it more stressful. It looks like the early calls are not based on geography or scholarship... That's just too stressful, they should change the online status and be done with it...

That's what it looks like, some people are saying that they got a scholarship. I assume they were told during the call.

I agree. They should change the online status first and then take their time in calling the admits personally...its raining here in Los Angeles.... depressing day all round....except for the ppl who r getting the calls ofcourse
