I hear that some of the first rounds are releasing/released so I figured I'd start this up to see where the community has had luck and has struck out so far this year :)

I'm down in Brazil sipping caipirinhas and working at a startup but will be January rounding it again this year

    in at HBS and Yale SOM, rejected without interview at Stanford GSB

    I would write them a letter letting them know that YOU are rejecting THEM and not the other way around. I'd almost hate for them to think that they came out ahead in this one.

    This to all my hatin' folks seeing me getting guac right now..

    Could you guys who are applying/hearing back also post what field you are currently in (don't have to say the firm). Would be helpful to see the mix of people applying from IB, PE, Consulting, etc.

    yes please!

    Also can you say what you plan on doing after MBA? Returning to PE/IB...start ups? non-profit? porn? any direction would be great!

    I'm a little suspicious of the people that say they are in at Sloan. Sloan doesn't release decisions until 1/29 and just started doing interviews last week.

    Ignore those posts. He claimed to be in at multiple schools that had not yet released their decision.

    Where ever he is, Brady is mad jealous of all the HBS acceptances.

    Hahah he posted like 5 times in the HBS thread on GMATClub after acceptances went out and made sure to mention how 'transformational' it will be.

    I wonder if everyone will be hooking up like rabbits too.

    In at Columbia, early decision. I was invited to interview at Booth but withdrew my application since I was already in at CBS.

    3.0 GPA, state school in engineering. 750 GMAT.

    Say hello from me to Glenn "Give it your best shot" Hubbard! Just teasing ...

    In at Wharton...just got the call from a member of the adcom. It's great news and the opportunity to spend time at INSEAD is a strong selling point, but I just don't think there's any way I can turn down HBS.
