Did the Done in a Day program at Wake Forest today and just found out that I'm in with a \$10k scholarship. Although it is my safety school I have become very impressed with the program, people there and the atmosphere of the school.

Also applying to UNC, Maryland and Gtown but won't find those out until Feb/March.

Anyway, glad that I at least know I'm going somewhere. Certainly helps with planning.

Thanks.

My profile (pasted in from an earlier profile-request-thread):

GMAT: 660
GPA - hard to convert but I'd say around 3.1-3.2 (Swedish M.S Industrial Engineering and Management, did my Masters thesis at Johns Hopkins on brand management in transitional economies)
Work experience: 3 years by matriculation, not stellar on paper as I will have been at 3 different companies during that time. Also, my current title is far from awe-inspiring although my actual job responsibilities are more leadership oriented than that. I do expect to get officially promoted before matriculation.
Reco's will be good.
Extra currs: Mentor undergrad marketing students at local college
Youth soccer coach (girls - 6 year olds), former elite soccer player,

My target schools are Georgetown, UNC, Wake Forest and Maryland. Chances?

Should state that I will be 29 years next year and have a pretty interesting background - Russian mother, Swedish father, have worked and studied in Sweden, U.S, Russia and Australia. Come from an engineering/business background but got especially interested in marketing during my last year in school and have focused on that ever since.

LT goal: Career in brand management

Sure, I am restricted geographically. Wife is an attorney and is barred in DC, Maryland and NC. So I choose the schools that attracted me in those regions:

Wake Forest - love the small class size, strong in the southeast
UNC - strong brand management program
Georgetown - strong international business
Maryland - strong technical marketing

Duke was out becase my wife went to UNC..
