Hey All

Just thought I'd report back to the group with which I started this horribly painful GMAT/MBA Application Journey.

So, after 7 months of utter misery and hard work the process has finally come to an end for me. I wrote the GMAT on Sep 2 and scored a 750. After a one week break I started to work on my applications and worked on these non-stop until R2 deadlines for INSEAD, Wharton, and Kellogg. Interviewed with all three (Kellogg interviews everybody) and finally heard today that I am admitted at INSEAD (Kellogg and Wharton decisions will take another few weeks).

This forum has been instrumental to ask some of the weirder questions regarding the GMAT and MBA application process. The key difference between this forum and some others is the respect and dedication that members exhibit, as well as the genuine effort by experts to help out. I am recommending to all of my friends to start here as they embark on the journey that I just finished. Anyway, this is my elaborate way of saying "thank you" to everybody who makes this forum as great as it is.

All the best to you guys.

Congratulations! INSEAD will be a great experience in many ways. Eat some fois gras and duck confit. Yum.

Thank you
