Kellogg Decision

I won’t keep you guys waiting, I’ve been anxious to type this all day. I received a call from Dean Katie Smith today after lunch to let me know that I’ve been accepted into the Kellogg School of Management MBA Class of 2016!!!

Let ’em know Jose… let ’em know

After letting that bomb drop, she proceeded to change my life even more by letting me know that I would be getting a substantial scholarship package! I don’t have a .gif for how huge that is… we’re all going to have to use our imagination. If you have a good one for this occasion, leave it in the comments!


LBS Decision

I was surprisingly calm last night and this morning, keeping myself plenty busy ahead of the noon EST notification deadline for The London Business School’s Stage 1 decision. Then noon came… and went, with no email. Of course then my mind began to race on what that could possibly mean with respect to my application. Thankfully I only had another 45 minutes to wait until I got my decision email…


Is it what I had hoped (read: dreamed) for? No, but it’s also not the end by a long stretch. With a new re-revision date in hand I am going to play this all forward and come up with a solid waitlist strategy. I’ll be discussing that here as well as the progress on my next round of applications.

In the meantime, Kellogg’s decision comes next week. Congratulations to all my fellow bloggers on their admit decisions!
