So, I woke up from the flu I was nursing to find out I got a ding from Wharton. That was a shocker, I was fairly certain I would get in.
On to Booth interview prep and waiting for Stanford + Sloan. I’ll update this post tomorrow.
I’m feeling better this morning (with respect to the flu and the ding). A ding from Wharton was hard to swallow because I thought my application was perfect. I guess it goes to show that the adcom doesn’t always agree with us applicants.
My major reason for not feeling bad about the ding (apart from the fact that I need to move on and keep my positivity) is that I presented myself and my goals on the application, there’s nothing I would change on it even if I knew that this would be the decision before submitting. I take solace in that fact. And despite my belief to the contrary, the adcom probably knows that Wharton would not be useful to me in achieving my goals so I accept their decision. I’ve decided to move on to preparing for my Booth interview and eagerly waiting for interview invites from my other two schools: Stanford and Sloan.
To those that received invites (such as my good friend: topdopgMBA); all the best in the TBD and hope you get in. To others like me: there’s light at the end of this tunnel. Keep believing in yourself and keep striving towards that goal.
