Kid me not..!

Was up till 5 in the morning working on my Kelley essays. When I got up at around 9...saw this mail..

Subj: Your Application -91 to 94 % is Incomplete

Dear Applicant,Your application is not yet completed. Please make sure you complete your application before the deadline.Thank You,Admissions, ISB

Good Lord!!! It scared the daylight out of me. Just a day back you say that everything is 'Changa-Changa' and we look forward to reviewing it and now you saw its 94% incomplete.

For the life of me...I fail to comprehend the happenings. This must be one of those obnoxious use of technology wherein a mail is sent out at a preset time.

Still, I cant take any chances. Just waiting for the clock to strike 9 AM in India to call them. I just hope they dont drop a bomb and say that we have not received your mail-in package. I have been asking them for a confirmation since last Thursday...but no reply.

On another note, my recommenders would be submitting their recommendations for Kelley this evening. The essays have been sent out to reviewers and I hope to get them back by tomorrow morning. Including the last minute brush-ups, I hope to submit my Kelley app by tomorrow night.

ISB Application Submitted...

Got confirmation thats ISB has received my complete application and they would be reviewing it.


"Dear XXXXX,

We have received your online application, and we look forward to reviewing it. Thank you!"

For the round-1 folks, its just a matter of days when they would be knowing their fate.

For me the wait has just started, first the interview invite wait and if I get the interview invite then the Adcomm decision wait. Oh man! long 2 -2 1/2 months ahead.

On another note, I guess the mail sent out by ISB is not gramatically correct.. ''...reviewing it". Is that right..?

I hope nobody from ISB Adcomm is reading this blog... he he.



CMU Application Also Submitted...

Submitted my CMU application on Monday morning at 12:18 AM. There was a lot of confusion involving the deadline for submission, it made me sweat. Will save that episode for some other blog. Need to get back to McCombs app now.
