I sure hope they release results before Jan 3 (at least the admits). I actually think it is to the school's advantage to do that, since many R2 deadline are Jan 2 or 3, so if they wait then people will have to apply to other schools R2, thus giving people more options vs. Chicago. IF they realease the admits earlier, then many people will not apply to R2 schools and just go to Chicago.

Hey Cream de la cream top of selection gmatclbbers,

Finally done with my interview.......went for the hub interview in Mumbai. Was too standard an interview.......introduce yourself + goals + why chicago ........apart from this just one random question on the surging Indian economy. No fk ups from my side, although there were no brilliant witticisms either.

Advantage of the hub interview was that I saw part of what I was up against - must say I was majorly impressed. There was a newscaster (who was earlier a crime reporter), 2 CA's, 1 economist an 2 engineers (me included). What was surprising was not their qualifications, but their general "smartness quotient". Guess the application procedure really does work.

As for the numbers - brace yourselves. On 1st Dec (the hub interview date), there were 25 ppl to be intervied in Mumbai alone. I presume there would be an equal number in Bangalore. Whew - that sure is a lot of ppl ........especially considering there were non-hum interviews in India as well.

Chalo peeps..........nothing else to do but wait now. Last year they posted the final results by 20th Dec. That was a full fortnight before the original Jan 4 date announced. But they had sent a mail well in advance saying they are going to do this. Cause my life is ruled by lord Murphy, I have a feeling that there is going to be no such break for us this time round.

During the Sept live event they said they were going to send them out before X-mas break. Then that switched until after X-mas. I am assuming this is due to an increased volume of application. They got many more than they were anticipating so they probably wont release them early.

good lord thats a lot of applicants and a whole bunch of success so far. If their accepting 50% of interviewed candidates that means 7-8 GMAT clubber will get in. Then again they say they interview 50% and we killed that so maybe there will be 10+ admits.

might have to change this places name to GSB club.

I had the same theory last year... we had a strong showing at the interview table but had a weak showing at the end

These were round 1 post-interview results: (one full time admit, one part time, handful of waitlists, some deny)

ceglar: 740, 3.1, 4years experience at matriculation. DINGED (full time)
jaynayak: 740 GMAT, ~3.0 GPA, 4 years exp, Indian IT, 1 US and 1 Canadian rec,DINGED (full time)
Lich: ?????? unknown stats DINGED (full time)
rhyme: 730 GMAT, ~3.0 GPA, 5 years exp,ADMITTED (full time)
lhmcjen:710 GMAT, 2.9 GPA, 6yrs WE in Marine Infantry ADMITTED (Part time Program)
naturallight: 730 GMAT, 3.6 GPA, 5 years exp in operations at investment firm, CFA, both recs are non-alumni, bad interview, campus visit WAITLIST (full time)
helg: Russian, 730 GMAT; GPA ~4.9/5.0 (top Russian university); 7 years supply chain mgnt, incl. 1 yr intl exp, WAITLIST (full time)
Hindustan: 730, 7yrs exp, 3.35 GPA triple major (!!), strong recos DINGED (full time)
flapjack:, ???? WAITLIST (full time)

But, in general, we did a lot better in R2..

7 deny, 2 waitlist, 7 admits => 7/16 odds = 43% admit

vs r1: 4 deny, 3 waitlist, 1 ft admit ==> 1/8 odds = 13%

That makes me feel better rhyme, maybe chances in R2 are not so bad. I am seriously considering applying to Chicago in R2, and lord knows I'm not exactly a shoe in. I was originally considering the PT program for next fall, but maybe I will see how it goes on my FT application.

Yep, you are right. I have started thinking about them, but the essays themselves, I think will be a couple of weeks before I actually write anything. Looks like I'm going to be very busy this holiday season.

I'm not sure if this we'll see the same pattern this year, many people waited for R2 because of the PPT - at least it's what I've heard from a add consultant... If R1 is tough I think R2 will still be tough...

Same with a lot of schools on here last year. Kellogg had zero admits during R1 but then a ton in R2. Might be that a lot of people rushed applications out during R1 and the R2 people just put together better essays. They say there is no difference in difficulty so its probably just a result of who was applying and what the schools were looking for.

Either way if you would have gotten in during R1 then you will almost definitely get in during R2.

I like everyone am hoping for decisions before X-mas. If I manage to get in that week will be spent hashing out where I will go...though Rhyme says I am a fool for even considering Kellogg over GSB (not that he is biased or anything).

Where can I find the list of all the classes provided at GSB? I see under curriculum, the different concentrations but don't see more than that. Can someone please guide me to the information?

Rhyme, how does the Flexible curriculum actually work?

Thank you!


P.S : Is it too late in the game to be asking these questions?

Perfect. Thanks rhyme, exactly what I needed.

I know I am way behind in the process of applying to GSB. I'm having second thoughts about this already.
