GPA: 3.2 GRE/GMAT: 690 Round: Round 1 | DC
Post-MBA Career: Entrepreneurship
Note: Waitlisted without interview R1. Sent updates and invited to interview R2. Still on the waitlist. I had my most successful/fun interview here, so it makes me think that sometimes it really is luck of the draw. I'm in elsewhere so at this point, I'll probably decline WL! Good luck to all!

GRE/GMAT: 740 Round: Round 2 | India
Post-MBA Career: Finance
Note: Waitlisted without an interview. Is anyone aware of the stats for waitlist acceptances especially for Indians, given the fact that I haven't even received an interview? UCLA is my top choice but via a reality check, my optimism is really down since we are getting so close to the admission fall. Thank you in advance for your inputs.

Note at Cornell / Johnson via n/a.
GRE/GMAT: 740 Round: Round 1 | Asia
Post-MBA Career: Technology
Note: Hello my fellow applicants. I am an Asian student looking to apply to bschool in Round 1 next year. I want to apply to Cornell because it has a very good rep in Asia and working here will be my backup option if I don't get work visa in the US. But it looks like general feeling is that this school isn't doing so well right now? Is the program doing so badly that it might be better to apply to other T10-15 schools instead? I want to have best chance of recruitment in the US before thinking about coming back to Asia. So local reputation is important to me as well.
