Thoughts and status update...

I have been planning to write this post for a while now and finally i was able to sit and write it.

So here goes the status of my R1 apps -


NYU Stern:- I am done with my interview at Stern and it went okay. Even after so many days of the interview i still keep thinking about what went in those 30-45 minutes. And then i start thinking how i could have answered that question in a more better way :). I guess this is how it is for everybody. Now i am waiting for the results.
I interviewed on campus in NYC. And i really had a great time there. Will write a seperate post on the interview experience.
I am really impressed with the school and the city and 'Stern' remains my first choice.

Ross:- As i posted earlier, i have been waitlisted. Two days back i got mail saying that i will be considered with R2 apps now. Also they asked me to send any update. I have devised my strategy to send updates and will start sending updates ASAP. Lets see if i am able to convert this to an admit. Will keep you guys updated.

Darden:- Now i don't know what happened to them. I haven't heard from them for long and same is the status with many other people. Oops also seems to be in similar situation as me.
With the decision date coming nearer, i am fearing my worst for this application. But such a long wait for the so called 'early decision' round is really making me think that why i applied to this school in the first place. And then all the controversy that they are considering R2 apps now with R1 has further pushed this cause.

And so goes the waiting period......

I just saw my interview invite to Darden today. There was no email notifying me of the invitation or anything - AND there was a one-liner online saying "if we do not hear from you in 10 days scheduling your interview we will assume you are not interested."

I wouldn't have checked except for you mentioning this - yikes!!

This is my first invite - but I applied in R2 and am still not entirely done with all my apps.

Good luck to you!!
