Hold on, you said you were Russian right? Are you sure?!?

That's true. But I have lots of friends in Italy and I prefer dry red wine, such as Valpolicella, Bardolino or Chianti and, the most liked - Bracchetto - red semi-sweet sparkling wine.

Actually, I do not like vodka and a cup of hot black tea warms up not less than alcohol. Good clothes also helps.

The admission of liking "black tea" plus using vodka to "warm up" is Russian enough in my book. He probably goes in for a bottle of siberskaya Corona instead of vodka, like many of the younger Russians

Have you been to Russia? You know such details as one of the famous beer brands here What are your impressions about the country? What are pros and cons of doing business here?

Out of the admits...haddy and djhouse, did either of you receive scholarships? Or does Columbia let you know later about scholarship awards? I think it would be interesting not only to see admits/dings, but also to see scholarship awards, if any.

Also, interesting to note that, the people who have been admitted so far (djhouse and haddy) both were under the 700 score for GMAT. Just goes to show that GMAT is only one part of the application process.

What's else, they're both US residents. I guess b-schools are in favor of their nationalities first of all.

One thing I've noticed from Yale that it is currently sending out , in its second ( or more?) load, interview invitations to high-GMAT, good-GPA, from-great-university and young applicants

Anyways, it's only my observation obtained from a small sample...generalization is not applicable here.

Where's your sample size for the Yale theory?

I can't find any info anywhere.

From those who got invitations here ...i went through their profiles.

As I mentioned, this is just my observation...You don't have to base your jugdement on it. Hope you understand. And sorry if my words go any extreme. I tried my best to express what i meant.

I wasn't offended by it. I'm also a stat junkie, so that was an interesting observation.

What would you classily as high gmat?

I guess it's 750+ .
Also, as one of your post mentioned, Yale is moving up the reputation rank fast; it must, therefore, try to improve average GMAT score, which is normally to us a partial indicator of how competitive a school is. Anyways, good lucks to you on getting invited and admitted

I think once a school hits the 700 threshold, it's less useful to try to get a higher average gmat. In fact, it may hurt the school's reputation as a gmat whore. I think it's in Yale's best interest (if they want to move up in gmat scores) to just hit say 705 average gmat.

Critical reasoning: I didn't say Yale tries to reach an average GMAT score of 750

Hard bin Reading Comprehension: I didn't say I assumed you meant Yale is trying to reach 750+.

In any case, my hunch is that it will be easier to get in this year than last year. I don't think I saw you in that thread. Have you or will you apply.

I already updated my profile on the admit/ding compelation thread, but I just had to come here and let everyone know that I just found out that I'M IN!!!

After the adcom reviewed my mid-quarter grades in the business math class they asked me to take, they thought that I'm doing so well that they decided to admit me now instead of wating until the end of the quarter to re-review my application.

So, although it's not H/S/W et.al., I'm still very excited to have been accepted into the OSU Fisher College of Business PT MBA! I'll start in January.

Congrats, especially for going to a school that doesn't get as much publicity on this forum. Perhaps in the future, you can be a wealth of information for the program on GMATClub so that more schools can get exposure here.
