Hello guys and experts here!

I agree with people here that this long wait is really more than nailbiting and sleepless nights..!!especially if its one's dream bschool! While just as curious as others,I wanted to share my profile.Please express your opinion on what you think are my chances!

Profile:26yrs/male/Indian/entrepreneur
Work exp:Total eight years in a start up pharma company and family business.(worked full time while attending college)
Gmat score:700(q49 v37)
E/c:Decent

Applied and dinged without interview in 3rd round last year.So,applied again for fall' 12 in round 1.I had the chance to write the goals and reapp essay only and those too were good but not stellar.
Dinged this year at Harvard,Wharton and Booth without inerview.
Also applied to other top tier schools UCLA,Emory and Kellogg(awaiting decision).
Accepted to Simon for the Jan'12 intake but I deferred it.

Given the huge competition and the acceptence rate,especially for stern,and my obvious profile,do you think that I have even a slight chance.?for an interview invite atleast?

dexter700,

Your chances at getting interviewed at Stern at fair. Stern likes candidates to be fairly experienced (which you are), and your GMAT is just slightly below the Stern average. However, Stern is also a 'fit' school, and from the profiles of successful applicants we have seen, it seems your profile is not the best fit - that still does not mean you get rejected.

Of the other schools you mention, Emory seems to be the one most likely to send you an interview invite. Chances at Kellogg and UCLA as well.

Not sure why you say you could not work as well on your essays as you wanted to. The app is the single most important factor in applying (provided you meet the minimum criteria in work ex, GMAT, et al). If you are still putting in apps, make sure your app is targeted, focused, and projects you to the best extent possible. Let us know if we can help.
