:cry: That's too bad, Avi. It's GSB's loss not to have you in Fall 2008 as a student.

avi, very very sorry to hear that. I thought you will definitely get in after the efforts you put in while on the WL.

I think you assessed your profile pretty well. More work ex and additional community service will make you irresistible to the top schools. Good luck buddy!

Awesome. Congratulations! I may stop by Admit Weekend #2, schedule-willing...maybe we should do another GMAT Club mini-meet up?


I might actually come up either that weekend or the next one to try and lock down an apartment depending on when the broker I'm dealing with says places are starting to come on the market for a mid-July move in.. maybe we'll see each other then



Nice! Definitely let me know.

Avi, I am very very sorry to hear that. You are correct about planning to work on work-ex and community work etc. I sincerely hope that you find your way (through MBA admits in future or without MBA). And please stay on GMATClub .. I may need your words of support if I get dinged everywhere. :(

Dude, go rinse with some Listerine!

You are not getting dinged everywhere. Just wait for 1 more week and this misery will be over. BTW, whats happening with your CBS app?

The waiting is unbearable...

I don't post much, but I do check this thread at least 20 times a day... :)

Got champagne in the fridge and an excellent bottle of wine ready for next Thursday :wink: Hope I won't have to give it to the neighbours...

Nah, you drink it one way or another. If its good news, you savor it as you enjoy your victory. If its bad news, you pound them both.

a big bow out from me to all my fellow clubbers as I leave the arena bruised, ego bent, but will not broken. in the words of the governator.. I`ll be bak

Thank you everyone for the words of comfort and support.. I still havent got into my school (UCLA and CBS still WL) but I gained many valuable friends and I know who to get in touch with when I reapply in the future.

In the meantime, keep yourself out of trouble.. and as the Japanese say.. Nippon Banzai.. :P (not applicable here)

To R2ers,

I'll be in Cozumel for the next few days and will probably not be online (forecast says rain, so maybe I will be, who knows, hah!). If I don't get to be here for the running of the bulls, good luck to all!
