The decisions are not out yet. Only interview invitations have been extended. You can read through the threads here for some stats but there aren't many of us around

We've been looking for the threads too, but in vain. There was one group on WSO that supposedly has a few more applicants, but it's a private group and it looks like the admin doesn't really check it anymore so none of us can get access. If you find some other thread, please let us know.

Was anyone in chat when the invitations were announced? I heard a few kids with high stats(3.7+ gpa and 750+ gmat) didnt make the cut. Anyone have any details. Thanks

And whiplash what were your stats/background? Major? GPA? school?

Yeah. A couple of us were on that chat when the invitations went out.

I'm from a large, top 15 engineering school in the US. Civil engineering + 3 minors. 3.8+ GPA, 760 GMAT. 1 engineering internship, 2 study abroad experiences and 2 social entrepreneurship initiatives in the developing world (with travel). Lead on an international research project. Involvement with a large charity. 3 artistic hobbies I've pursued since I was four. Couple of important awards from my school for the social entrepreneurship projects.

No idea, sorry. There's like no information on who got in and who didn't. Online, at least.

Hi all,

As a first post, I would like to inform all that I am applying for round 1.

Some stats for who's interested:

Nationality: Dutch
University: Utrecht University
Degree: B.Sc (Major: Information Sciences, Minor: Economics)
GPA: 4.0
Honors program: 'Descartes College' (University-wide)

Overall status: working on essays and GMAT.
GMAT test date: August 19.

If anything is missing let me know...

Now that that's said let me start by saying that I find this year's application more challenging than last year's. Especially the part where they ask you about three failures. How have you guys approached this question, where did you get your inspiration from? Sure I've failed at communication at some point or projects didn't go as well as I'd hoped, but it all seems not enough of a story. Especially for college juniors/seniors it's hard to get some meaningful failures i.m.o. .

Quite the contrary, I think the setbacks question was something I was able to answer fairly ... quickly. Note that there's a difference between setbacks and failures. Setbacks are seen as an obstacle to achieving something you want, while failures are the inability to do so. For my setbacks, I drew from two personal life experiences and one professional/academic experience.
