You guys did clean the house with GSB. Congrats to everyone who get in.

Lets hope that the GMATclubbers on the Wharton forum can post similar results tomorrow.

sorry everyone about the ding news... I was rooting for you all.

For those who applied to both GSB and Kellogg, I guess not too many get into both eh? Makes sense, since the two schools are pretty different.

I am sure with the quality of GMATClubbers, you all will get into a top school soon!

faceman: Kellogg=?? Chicago=ding
forcefeed: Kellogg=?? Chicago=Admit
Vij101: Kellogg=ding Chicago=ding
RiverRipper: Kellogg=admit Chicago=ding

Thanks for the flattery, but I got rejected at Chicago! No word from Kellogg.

yeah, that is very interesting. Of course, we don't know about faceman and forcefeed yet. But I was always wondering how one would shape their goals and essays if applying to both (which is why as much as I was thinking of applying to both, I couldn't get the "passion" flowing for GSB when it's already flowing for Kellogg).

Sorry faceman, copy and paste error.

Burger I added you to our list of Kellogg folks, unless you are planning on withdrawing from there for GSB?

Sorry to hear the Ding guys, was really hoping that C-GSB will have good news to share today for other GMATClub folks.

Good luck on the rest of the apps.

And sorry about the dings and Waitlists - avi and group. You are all smart people. So I have no doubts that another school will come through for you.

Nows the right time to milk all the admits for help. I need some guidance on what you guys put in the powerpoint. Design is not my strongpoint so I am sure I cannot come up with something fancy. I was thinking of putting a collage of pictures potraying different aspects of me with some bullet points.

I drank to much Port Wine yesterday, and my colleagues from work want to celebrate today so it's going to be a 2 days in a roll.

Anyway on the decision letter it's this:
"An opportunity to spend two years connecting with people who approach work and play with equal intensity, who revel in classroom discourse as much as they do exploring new nightclubs and running on the beach."

So I understand that I can explore parties, hehehehe!

Regarding the PPT I have it home in my pendrive, tomorrow I can pass to whomever wants it.

Congratulations to all the admits!

I could definitely use some help on my essays for R2. Having applied to 4 schools in R1, I have a good starting point but with 1500 words & personal/professional goals to cover requires that I start afresh.

I have some ideas for the ppt but I am not sure how I can tie up say a montage of my work with xc stuff & goals.

Hope R1 admits can give some tips on what (they think) worked for them.

Yup.. just received the email with all the info. They already give us a GSB email address? That's pretty crazy. I'm the eighth person with the same name apparently (jxxxxxx8@chicagogsb.edu). I imagine if I don't matriculate I get to keep the email address as a parting gift? :wink:

JP -- Kellogg does the same...I assume all the schools do it as part of an effort to 'sell' you.

Hope you guys have recovered from the Admit Hangover. I just need some help on the 1st essay for Chicago. I am barely able to fill up 800 words on my career goals. I guess having written 400 word essays for HBS I find it difficult to expand on my goals. Did you guys write about your career progression because they have not specifically asked for it.

Another thing I would like to know is how to begin my essays.

Do you guys go like
I joined so and so as a XXX. Then i moved to this firm etc.
My short term goals are so and so.....

Many websites actually discourage such chronological essays and especially from someone from IT industry the adcom will get hundreds of similar essays. Should I start directly with an interesting project I implemented etc
Hellllllllllppppppppppp pleaseeeeeeeeeee
