Amazing bsd!!!! It seems like it was a case of LBS not having enough room, instead of the quality of your application. Congrats BSD!!!

I felt your heartache during the entire process.

I remember reading your Zero Admits thread and feeling real shitty for the members of that club.

Wonderful job - you've really turned the tables around! Congratulations!

BSD

Congrats!

I'm truly happy for you, you really deserve it.

Are you 100% with LBS or are you applying to other schools?

Thanks kwam,

Yes that is my next dilemma. LBS was among my top 4 picks last year (others were Wharton Chicago and Columbia). My aims are Finance/trading/hedge funds. Initially my plan was to app to 5-6 schools in R1 this year. But now, I won't app to any school that I wont pick above LBS. Also, I'd limit my applications to only 2 or 3 schools. But, still not sure which schools to pick.

I'm half way through my Wharton essays already so Wharton's a goer. The other two I'm not so sure about. I'm even contemplating a cheeky HBS essay (even though I know I haven't got a hope in hell).

With Columbia, my original essays were so poor that I don't believe I can cover the lost ground in just 750 words (the limit for reapplication essays there). With Chicago, I absolutely loved it during my visit last year and made a huge effort with my essays (rhyme will tell you that my Powerpoint blew him away). But I feel that London provides a superior location/networking to Chicago's superior academics. Also, I'm finding the new Chicago questions a real pain to handle (esp question 2).

Perhaps I'll set up a poll soon and go by popular consensus.
