Looks like GSB was REALLY popular this year...I wonder if there will be a backlash next year, i.e. people thinking "oh man everyone and their mother is going to apply to Chicago this year due to last year's success, so i better stay out"

I think GSB was tops this year (R3 is unknown at this point), then K, followed probably by Wharton, then HBS, Ross, Duke.

Helg, amazing news!!! Congratulations!!!

And wow, you've got a really tough decision on your hands. Good luck with the Chicago vs Ross(free) conundrum.

And just to confirm, I was dinged. :(

prasad, I was hoping to continue getting the benefits of your wisdom at GSB. Oh well, Michigan ain't that far! In case you didn't read my previous posts, thank you for all the help, prasad! I really appreciate it.

mNeo, man. I couldnt recognize you without the penguin avatar. However, the GSB avatar does fit you better. :)

Just came back from a long day : travelling to and interviewing at UCLA. So, couldnt read or respond to posts. But, I am very happy see the success of fellow clubbers with GSB and Wharton.

You, me, kryzak and other SF admits should have a get together. Lets plan on something in late April.

Might as well add my name to the list of "Dings". I have a feeling that a very late recommendation and a nervous interview were my downfall.

Hey guys.. Congrats to all the admits and good luck to those on the waitlist and those reapplying or going to other schools.. I came upon this site yesterday and I must applaud the sense of community that I noticed when browsing through the forums.. I wish I had found gmatclub earlier.. It might have led to an admit from GSB.. I have also been WL and since Chicago is by far my first choice, I'd like to do whatever is possible to convert this to an admit.. Considering how competitive this year is, I understand the chances are low and if I don't get in I intend to reapply next year R1.. Any advice any of you could provide around what all I can do while on the waitlist would be appreciated..

To add to your statistics:

Congrats Kwam, look forward to putting a face to the screenname.

I must admit I am jealous of that building.

that building is MAGNIFICENT! The picture is great, but nothing short of sitting in the atrium area can do it justice... I'm very jealous! (then again, I can sit OUTDOORS in January in the courtyard at Haas, hahahaha :lol: )
