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

    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..

    In at HBS (and will attend); rejected post-interview at Stanford; Wharton decisions come out on Thursday.

    Congrats to both of you! Excellent news.

    Most people do things to add days to their life. I do things to add life to my days.

    Looks like HBS doesn't reject anyone. What a bunch of ballers.
    (I know its very difficult to get into, I am just kidding, just found it funny that everyone got into HBS so far, but no one into Stanford.)

    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.

    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!

    How did you future HBS'ers fare on the gmat? Thing is my Achilles heel right now...

    Short, aren't you at Duke?

  • SirTradesaLot's picture

    Just want to say congrats to the HBS admits. Prepare for a transformational experience, to ooze swagger, and to slay.

  • Caffrey's picture

    It makes perfect sense that people get rejected from Stanford while getting into Harvard. The program is on third of the size.

  • kingfalcon's picture

    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.

  • ladubs111's picture

    lol i bet Stanford doesn't take anyone cept Silicon Valleyt. But their graduating class is what 400 vs 1k+ for others m7s so i can see the high rejection rate for finance peepz.

    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.

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

  • cinnamontoastcrunch's picture

    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.
