Note at UT Austin / McCombs via email.
Round: Round 1
Post-MBA Career: Consulting
Note: So this is just because I'm super struggling... I got into UT and loved it but (if I'm lucky) I'll be in around 90k debt. I make a lot of money now (close to what they're assuming if you get an MBA) and I could just do an MBA online, not quit my job, and probably transition into the career I want. I realize it wouldn't be the "full" experience but I just can't wrap my head around paying so much for two years of something I could do for half the price and not quitting my job. Any advice is awesome.

Rejected at Cambridge / Judge via email.
GPA: 3.8 GRE/GMAT: 700 Round: Round 5
Post-MBA Career: Consulting
Note: Received a reject from Cambridge Judge citing that there were much more applications than expected this time in Round 5. Although they say equal chance in each round, it is quite clear that in round 5 it is very hard unless exceptional when competing with the waitlists from round 1-4.
