I noticed prior years had some really active general b-school discussions (where everyone got in, etc.) and didn't see any here. Hoping this thread can serve as a general discussion topic for H/S/W & M7 applications from this year's round 2 (or round 1?) for those who would matriculate in 2019 and graduate in 2021. With interview invites fast on their way, I look forward to seeing everyone's results. Please try to include profile details similar to how I've done so. I'll start:
Undergrad: semi-target (~3.95/4.00 GPA)
Work Experience: Classic 2+2 -- 2 years in IB in NYC (at an EB/BB) followed by 2 years in MM PE in NYC (at time of expected matriculation)
Extra-curriculars: Essentially non-existent unfortunately
Brand: Entrepreneurship (loosely)
Harvard - Applied R2, haven't heard back yet (invites to go out 1/28 and 1/31)
Wharton - Applied R2, haven't heard back yet (invites to go out 2/7)
Booth - Applied R2, invited to interview (today)
Columbia - Applied R2, haven't heard back yet (invites to go out on rolling basis)
-Annoyed at writing more essays for Booth (they ask you to write 2 more after you get invited to interview, though at least they're shorter).
-Worried I haven't expressed my interest in Columbia well-enough
-Anyone know when someone who applied towards beginning of January can expect to be interviewed for Columbia (based on last year's trends)?
-Currently planning to only attend some of these schools if they granted me $$; job market is just too hot right now
