Congrats. 3 Waitlists ! Good Luck!!

January 22, 2009

Oh, tough luck. All dings. Well, good luck the next time around.


Wow! 3 Admits ! You rock, man !!


The story could easily have been very different from what it is today.

I’m gradually becoming indifferent to the whole process. I know I would continue to do my part for all the 3 waitlists, but I do not have the luxury of time with me.

Tuck was nice enough to interview me yesterday, but they mentioned that I might not know how the saga ends before June. I’m almost ready with my love letter for Kellogg, but won’t send it before the next week now. Ross is hosting a chat today, and I am thrilled at being a part of an elite Google Group of waitlisted souls. Emory conducted the interview last week, and I don’t feel the inclination to report how the Emory and Tuck interviews went for me.

Earlier, I knew what I was waiting for, now I’m not sure what’re the right words to describe my feelings.

Things are catching up with me. There’s a point beyond which you don’t deal with uncertainty. You just let it play out. Blame it on my optimism that I’m not giving up yet, even when its so easy to do so.

For history’s and toiling’s sake, I’ll reproduce a copy of my list on the right here, because I don’t like the look of it anymore.


  • My List

    IIMC PGPEX – interviewed 9/21, dinged 10/29, admitted 12/8 ! (2nd list)
    ISB – submitted 9/8, interviewed 11/4, dinged 11/20
    INSEAD – submitted 9/23, dinged 11/6
    WHARTON – submitted 10/1, dinged 11/13
    KELLOGG – submitted 9/30, interviewed 11/3, waitlisted 1/6
    ROSS – submitted 9/30, interviewed 11/7, waitlisted 1/15
    TUCK – submitted 10/10, waitlisted 12/19, interviewed 1/21
    DUKE – submitted 10/21, dinged 12/18
    EMORY – submitted 12/8 , interviewed 1/16

  • We’ll find out in a few month’s time how it went from here. Had the story been different, I would have had something to post everyday. You would now need to bear with long stretches of inactivity, and then too, posts such as these offering nothing worthwhile.

      Do not worry my friend. It will happen soon. Are you going to join IIMC if you do not hear back from your waitlist schools before that?
      Will you join emory and leave IIMC. I had my interview scheduled with Emory today, but I canceled it. I think I do not have luxury of time and neither do I have energy 🙂
      Good luck, I hope you will hear soon from your school of choice.

      Indifferent isn’t a bad place to be.

      Take care.

      hmm.. hard luck man. i got all dings.. and i can tell you it does not feel nice. so hold on, and many a things might change. in any case, its better than knowing they didn’t like you at all.

      …and Ross has no loan options for international students whatsoever and it doesn’t look like they are trying for anything to come through. I suggest that you concentrate on showing your love to Kellogg and Tuck, atleast these two schools have something for international students

      Goodluck dude! Rooting for you!!
