There are six of us who will be making calls, and hundreds of admit calls to make. And, to those of you speculating about the order of the calls (whether theyre by country in alphabetical order or by first and last initials), Kwon noted that there is no special order, other than trying to accommodate different time zones so were not calling you at 6AM. But, feel free to post first and last initials inMBA LiveWire!

Booth Senior Associate Director of Admissions and Analytics, Nima Merchant also gave some sage advice to those of you currently applying to business school. As you move forward with your business school plans, consider your own career path and where you hope to go with your MBA. You have heard us say many times that while we want you to have clear ideas about your future career; you dont need to have every detail mapped out. Certainly you will make many discoveries during your program and uncover amazing and unexpected possibilities. Know how your goals align with your top business school choices, the potential employers you envision yourself pursuing post-MBA, and which schools can offer you the opportunities you hope for.
