All Grim updates in one post!!!

Hey ppl,

After about a month I dare blog again....... After the double madness, I wanted to avoid that sort of position at all costs..... So decided to push one of the applications (Oxford) to the next round.... Fully concentrated on arden and submitte on time an without any fuss.......

Meanwhile, I was seriously contemplating about the validity of a safe-school (McCombs). The points I had in opposition of applying to any safe school were very valid. The leading reason was my desire to NOT abandon my business just after startup for something which is second best...... Ya, I know I'd be bashed for saying this by the McCombs Lover Association, but hey folks, that's what I think......

So, decided to drop applying to Texas also. (After which it was truly a game of all or nothing) And so, just applied to four schools only.

After 28th Oct, I took a leave from work and went on a nice holiday for a week in the mountains. Came back and aggressively pursued my other interests which were long lost and forgotten (like reading, Gaming and hanging out)......

Was so happy and felt liberated.......But the feeling was not to last......

Shortly after, UCLA started sending out interview invites....... Was thrilled at the prospects, of course. But heard nothing till now and things aren't looking good on this front, since UCLA admits only those who it interviews.

But the real shocker came yesterday when HBS sent out a large lump of it's invites (a whooping 750 invites in a single day)...... I still haven't heard anything. Although, HBS will send another 100 invites till the notification date, it seems foolish enough to keep that widow of hope open too..... (coz statistically if 750 is NOT ME, then 100 is NOT ME in 1 MILLENIUM)..... So, that ship has also sailed........

Looking at Duke, Since I am an international, I can't interview on campus. The application had an option of requesting alumni interviews (which they'd extend by invitation only). Still havn't heard about an interview. Although they say that inteviews are not mandatory (though higly recommended) for admission. But seriously guys, if Duke were genuinely interested, I think they would have wanted to see me (at the very least). I guess I don't have to wait much for this ding coz it comes in two days.

So what is left is Darden. And looking at my rotten luck (and maybe something else, maybe my profile, maybe my essays, coz HBS was my best essay in them all), I have lost all confidence in my chances anywhere. And what's worse is that I still am not able to justify a safe school for me. Seems that my brain has completely stopped working.

The HBS decision toay has thoroughly shaken me...... I really saw myself at the place, the picture quality of my dreams was crystal clear, and my essays (or the application for that matter) was my best shot, my 101%......... and if I was incapable of landing even an interview invite there, I am unsure of landing an admit elsewhere.

It looks like a grim future for me MBA-wise, because come what may, I still (stoically) stand by my decision for the best or nothing....... Looks like I'll get the latter...... Looks like it will be a glorious case of DWI in all the four applications for me......

If that'd be the case, I am sure of one thing, that after Oxford (and with a luck like mine, assuming safely to DWI there also), my MBA reams shall surely REST IN PEACE............ :(

Cheer up - and stop thinking negatively! You will definitely get into a great school - all you need is that 1 admit, right? I like that you aren't going to settle for a school unless you're totally passionate about it - but do research a few schools for Round 2

Don't stress. Keep your head up and remember the positive side of life. Things do happen for a reason and I'm big proponent of that. Don't settle for less than you want, but at the same time, don't discount the prospects of great second tier schools. Ask yourself what it is your want to get out of the experience, if it's simply a brand name, then fine, but if it's much more than that, take a second look to reflect. Best of luck!
