Go Blue!!

Yay!!! Got the call I was waiting for (like ever!) today morning...

The Ross Rnd 1 decision deadline is not until 01/15 but the BW forums had been abuzz with anticipation regarding the calls going out starting Monday itself and anyone who has been on the forums (who hasn't, you ask? :) would know how addicitive it is once someone on the forum mentions receiving a call!! So I spent the whole of yesterday refreshing the Ross Round1 thread every 2-3 minutes like an obsessive maniac and as the day wound down, I was almost reduced to a nervous wreck as I had not received 'THE' call yet!!

All I could do the entire evening was ponder over why I did not get the call? had they already called everyone? maybe they are doing it alphabetically? and so on... I remember falling asleep with the last thought being about the call and waking up today thinking about it!!! Trust me, I am not the obsessive kind but this was my top choice school and also the only result I was waiting for... I so wanted it and then it finally does go off!!

Strange how when I saw the number and realised it was from Ann Arbor, I felt relieved and almost calmed down... the victory dance came later :D

But there it is... With an admit to Ross 2011, my application season comes to an extremely successful end... 1 year, 4 applications, 4 interviews and 4 admits later I am finally ready to close this exciting chapter of my life!!

Tons of decisions, planning, shopping, preparing, traveling to look forward to but we will leave that for another day... till then, Hakuna Matata!

Thanks,

Coronet said...

@All - Thanks a lot, guys!

@m@ - Rainerisms has been fun to read... would love to meet the 3 brains behind it :)

@Matt - r u a prospective? which round?

@Ruche - Congrats on the interview invite! I went through the essays, revised all the program and profile strengths in order to show a fit... My interview experience (on the blog) and ClearAdmit should give you a good idea of the questions... prepare a 1-2 points for each q and u should be fine...
Dont stress too much else you tend to either blabber too much or not speak at all... it happened to me! :) ATB

MBAlmighty said...

Wow!!! Speechless!!! Congrats Coronet and have fun in Michigan! :)

ahembeea said...

Congrats again! So you are our EXPERT when it comes to school selection and acing the applications :). The applicants this year would all fall one over the other to take tips from you!!

Coronet said...

@MBAlmighty - Thanks! it surely has been a fun ride so far :) ATB with your Stanford app!

@ahembeea - I wouldnt call myself an 'EXPERT' but I think I have the 'FIT' thingie figured out now :) Keep the faith... Kellogg/Ross are just a step away!

Matt said...

No, I'm not a prospective. : )
I'm in the Marketing Communications Office at Ross, trying to handle our social media presence. We just launched a Facebook page if you want to connect with other Rossians! http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/pages/Ann-Arbor-MI/The-Ross-School-of-Business/42202896250

I'd love to hear what you thought of the decision notification. Shoot me an email if you have time.
Congrats again!

Hi There,

To give you a brief introduction about myself, I run a website called TotalGadha.Com. For the past two years, TotalGadha.com has been helping CAT and GMAT Aspirants get into their dream Business Schools. Besides that, we have been successfully running online forums for Quant, Verbal, and Business Schools. TotalGadha GMAT is an online source for information on the MBA admissions process abroad. We draw nearly 3000-5000 students everyday and receive a good number of queries from our students on regular basis. In order to take the process of helping our students further, we are adding links of useful MBA blogs in our Zing Roll (Blog Roll). We found your blog useful for our students. We would like to exchange link with you. Please let us know if it is possible.

You can reach me at dagny@totalgadha.com

Regards,
Dagny Taggart

Congrats on Ross!!!

I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I enjoy your blog, and wish you the best of luck with your MBA experience. I was in your shoes a few years ago, and can tell you that the Stanford GSB was two of the best years of my life (the application process, not so much, but that’s another story…)

Anyway, I know how stressful the application process can be, and since a lot of your readers are in the process of applying to business school, I thought I might be able to help you provide a valuable resource to your loyal readers.

I’d like to send you a copy of my complete applications for 5 top MBA programs (for free, seriously). Then, if you think your readers might like it as well, I’ll provide a link you can post on your blog so your readers can grab their copy as well.

If you're interested, drop me an email at josh.hohman@gmail.com, and I'll have a preview copy of my application materials emailed to you ASAP, so you can check it out and make sure it's something you'd feel comfortable giving away to your readers.

Sincerely,
Josh Hohman

Hi

I found your blog through Google search and I noticed that you are/were a MBA student too. My classmates and I recently launched a website (www.mbaNERDs.com) providing free case summary and discussion area for MBA students. In this way, people can better prepare their case study before the class and network with other talents around the world.

If you like our idea, you are more than welcome to tell your friends who are in MBA program. I believe this would be a great help to them! Thank you so much!

Please feel free to take a look and let us know how you feel so that we can improve our services.

Best Regards,


Allen

I just ran across your blog today. Congratulations on getting admitted at Ross. Converting all the 4 great applications to a call is very impressive. I'm planning on applying to business school in the near future. Reading your posts and experiences has inspired me.

I've been reading lots of MBA blogs recently and have a suggestion for how this blog can reach to many other needful B-school applicants. Beat The GMAT, which is a very active GMAT/MBA site, recently launched a blog directory (http://www.beatthegmat.com/blogs/all) to promote MBA blogs. If you add your blog to their blog directory, a lot more people like me will find your blog!

Please keep posting great stuff!
