I am really curious what next year will be like.

Congratulations to all the admits! mNeo, special wishes to you. I am very happy that you could get into one of your top choices.

I did not get the call. So, I guess this is the end of the road for me, as far as GSB is concerned. But a new avenue awaits, and it leads to Michigan. In the end, I am really happy to go to a school that I am passionate about and its probably fitting that I was dinged for my half-hearted effort on the GSB app.

Finally, million thanks and +10 kudos to dabots, avi, rhyme and kryzak for helping me on the GSB application. You guys are great. Thanks!

Looks like Michigan for me too. I am pretty disappointed that I went 1 for 6 on my apps. This one hurts pretty bad, considering I thought I did pretty well and Chicago was my favorite city that I visited.

Thank you so much, guys! I also have to thank a lot of people for helping me in this app-hell. But I'll wait to get a confirmation from GSB before I do so :roll:

To those that are still waiting, we all know that there will be lot more admits tomorrow. I am sincerely hoping that prasad, bsd_lover, bherronp and others get their calls too. Prasad, you deserve to get a call just for helping me reschedule the interview. :)

mNeo: huge congrats.


prasad, bh, bsd, adc, max, helg, and many others, hang in there, there is much to happen yet, though I would agree that the biggest movement may have happened already. But, I'm still here rooting for all clubbers still on the race.

Congrats to all the admits.

I couldn't stay away from the boards :(

hahaha

I guess it's the end for me though. Given the time difference, I doubt that I'll be getting a call tonight, or tomorrow morning.

congrats to mNeo, ujjib and other admits ... I will find out about my status in 10 hours ...

If I do get admitted, the first thing I am gonna do is to get 100+ signatures from admits, present it to adcom and try to change the GSB admit procedure to "online-first and calls later" procedure. I am sure the admitted students will definitely hold hands on this front... It beats me why the adcom spread the calling over two days and keep others who didnt get a call really really anxious ...

HUGE congrats to all the new admits! You guys are awesome and I wouldn't feel [totally] wrecked, knowing you were admitted instead of me :lol: :lol: :lol:

That said, I didn't get either a call or an email yesterday. I did have one missing call from an unidentified number (that means phone number couldn't be displayed), and usually my cell operator cannot identify calls coming from the U.S. But that would be too much of a wishful thinking, wouldn't it?

Well, today my efficiency at work would be in the negative zone, as I will be waiting for the official ding letter in a little less than 9 hours.

bherronp, I feel you, I also have 1 admit out of 5 applications so far... At least, I have an offer of a free ride from Ross as a consolation prize, that means they really want me in A2 this fall 8-)

Yeah i really need Chicago to deliver the goods for me even though hope has faded for me. With 0 admits so far I do not want to wait for another year as I am looking for a career change. Wish I could buy admits from ppl who already have more than 1 admit. 7 more hours to the hour of reckoning.
