Chicago Admit

I'm in folks!!! I got the phone call about 2 hours ago.
Feeling more relieved than anything else :)

Relieved coz i dont have to write any more essays ;)

Thanks to each one of you for being with me through this process, right from GMAT preps till now, and pitching in with your views at various stages.

By that, dont assume this to be a farewell post, as i intend to keep writing about my experiences from now on. I thought this was the most appropriate moment to thank you guys :)

Iday said...

@jitesh:
Test scores are put up on the right side of the blog.

I am an Engineer (2003 passout) working in one of the top IT services company in India for the past 3 yrs and 6 months. Loads of extra curriculars right from school days. Decent community service experience over the past two years.

@scarecrow:
Thanks man :)
I believe that the window is open till you officially know your result. Someone mentioned in the forums that last year, AdCom kept calling people well into the decision date. Fingers crossed for ya :)

@madan:
Thanks a lot man :)

Gautam said...

Iday,

Many congratulations for Chicago!!

I have been reading your blog from quite sometime and following ur progress. We infact share a similar profile too...Indiin IT engineer, top IT services company..GMAT 760...

I think you will make it to Kellogg too! All the best...btw what will be your first pick in that case?

Congrats once again,
Gautam

scipio said...

Weightu da machi... Really happy for you :)

Neenga engayo poiteenga sir!!! :)

Iday said...

@gautam:
thanks :)
Between Chicago and Kellogg, i think it will be Chicago GSB. It is a really tough decision to make though...

@scipio:
thanks machi :)

Azhakiya Ravanan said...

Congratulations Iday, All the best for a many more admits and a wonderful future!

Gautam said...

yes I agree, its a tough one..but from your posts it seems that you are interested in a finance major..so going by that..I am not surprised that you chose chicago. Only caveat is the highly customizable chicago curriculum which might be difficult especially considering your non-business background.

Iday said...

@gautam:
yeah - my inclination towards Finance is what made me say i'd go to Chicago :)

The completely customizable curriculum is both an advantage and a challenge. With my non-bizz BG, i'd need to put in extra effort. But there is a really helpful support group at Chicago that will offer me all the help i'd ever need in making full use of this curriculum. Not to mention the help and guidance i'd receive from my classmates :)

Iday said...

@azhagiya ravanan:
thanks a lot :)

Casualty said...

great going dude..

Aashim said...

wow! What an achievement dude.

Getting into GSB is really something especially for an Indian IT Male!! Go and have a cracker of a new year and Xmas!!

YOur profile is pretty good. How were your acads..guess you must have been a college topper --right..:)

Your Blog is also pretty good.

Congo and Cheers!
Aashim

Iday said...

@casualty:
thanks mate :)

@aashim:
Thanks a lot :)

And i was no college topper. One of those guys who did a LOT of stuff while at college but still managed to maintain decent acads (First class with distinction)!!!

hey, actually there are many Indian ITs who got into Chicago GSB in R1.

azhar said...
