Anyone with Yale SOM and Chicago Booth stories?

Post Tue Nov 09, 2010 4:49 am
Hello all,

i am applying to Yale SOM and Chicago Booth. well, GMAT is killing me so far: Kaplan Online (600), MGMAT CAT1 (530), and Kaplan CD CAT1 (540) ... i ain't giving up yet.

does anyone know people or have friends who got admitted to these schools with a softer GMAT score?

thanks in advance,
MSM.

Well - I was rejected from from Chicago R1 this year - no interview. 720 gmat, 3.07 gpa undergrad from a top school and 3.59 in a low ranked law school. I spent a lot of time on my essays and apps. If that helps.

Hey hman768,

i am sorry to hear your story! you have a good score and a great GPA; one would have thought b-schools will be fighting to get you in. where you applying for admission to Booth for Fall 2011?

i took GMAT and scored 550. i am giving it a try again in 5 weeks' time.

Did you do a followup or get any feedback on why you didn't get an interview?

No. I didn't do any follow up. I have no intention of applying again next year so although I'd be interested in hearing I'm not that interested. As a follow up I got wait listed at Yale last week. I was surprised because I was not interviewed. Does this happen a lot? A wait list without an interview?

dude, I am also wait-listed at ESADE without interview. Then I emailed them and got a reply that they will short-list the candidates for interview in first week of January
