Exactly a week after i posted my enrollment package in Chennai, it reached the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, Chicago GSB on a (as usual) windy morning on the 31st of Jan 2007. Two days later, the status of my online app changes from "admit" to "accepted offer". Everything seems to have been okay and I am officially a member of the class of 2009 :) Of course, there is a verification process to follow.
Among awful work load, I've been frequenting the admitted students forum and the place is busy. I guess it'll be something more than busy after the R2 results are out. I am getting the feel of what Chicago GSB calls "the community" :) The first official gathering of admitted students, the Admit Weekend, is scheduled on the 23rd and 24th of Feb. I wont be able to travel, but i know i am missing a lot of fun and meeting up prospective classmates.
Now that i have done all that i can do, i am waiting for the other stuff to begin - Visa and Fin Aid being the ones i am eager to begin. Everything begins in late March or thereabouts. Having applied in R1 and been admitted in Dec, there is a 3 month duration when the admitted student has nothing to do. I believe this is an area to improve - i can at least start the applications now! I'll see if something can be done about this, once i get there :)
