DWI from Wharton

Just got the official notification on the online application system.
So, the W journey ends here :)

With no info expected from any of the remaining schools in the immediate future, this looks like the beginning of a long dull period. The next thing to look up to is the Chicago Interview next weekend.

So till i hear anything from the other schools or till i have an update, good bye and be good :)

Hey come on now ! Wharton is just one school.Its indeed a pain and i know how it feels. Its scares me to think of W in R2 now. But go vent out everything before that Chi interview comes up. Mine is tomorrow

Hey iday, i am really sorry to hear that bud. Having recd similar news from Columbia, I know exactly how u feel. Its imp not to lose focus at this time, you have your Chi interview, so concentrate on that.

I can already see from the post that you have a positive attitude towards this - that can only help. Good, keep that up and u shud b good to go :)

TC!

@hobbes:

Sorry to hear about Wharton but I'd echo with what others had to say about concentrating on Chicago. Give the interview your best shot and the rest will follow.

Good luck!

@anonymous:

Anyway - i dont think there is no point speaking abt W anymore.

@mbablogger:

hi - i have an invite from UCGSB and W and have heard one guy with an HBS invite - you know of any patterns about HBS interview invites? what kind of ppl they like, how many ppl they interview in India - that kind of info? wonder whether its too early to give up hopes abt HBS - lucky you say you can sleep things off, i cant even sleep!

Iday said...

@anonymous:
I dont know much abt the HS process. I dont think anyone knows as much information as we'd like to know. HBS is too tight lipped abt their app evaluation process.

Ofcourse it is too early to give up hopes abt HBS. I think most of their invites go out by late Nov. All the best and keep ur fingers crossed :)
