Note at Harvard Business School via email.
Round: Round 3
Note: For those of you who have been accepted to the Toigo MBA Fellowship, were you aware that the scholarship award was only $1,000? Not that the historic $5,000 award is a drastically larger sum...I guess I'm just curious what others believe the value proposition of the fellowship is, given that it's clearly not monetary.

Note at Yale SOM via n/a.
GPA: 3.0UG 3.8G GRE/GMAT: 334 Round: Round 3 | Southern US
Post-MBA Career: Non Profit / Social Impact
Note: Sorry to those released from the WL today. Many of you have fantastic Plan B's waiting for you and/or will likely have better luck next cycle. I have not (yet) been rejected from the WL. Does anyone have any clue what that might mean? Do you think more rejections are coming this week or next, or that they have reduced the WL to a very small group and will be hanging onto this group for much of the summer in case a spot or two open up? I imagine that there is no way to know this and that any answers may just be conjecture, but perhaps someone in-the-know or who is aware of how the WL is managed historically. My boss is understandably as curious as I about whether I am staying on at work or will be attending biz school in the fall.
