Harvard Decision ...

I am in!!

The feeling today at noon was absolutely surreal (and even the feeling that I have now). I had butterflies for the first 3 hrs of the day and just kept trying to distract myself in any way possible. Luckily at 11:50am my VP called me into his office to chat about American Idol last night and we talked until about 12:05pm at which point I rushed to my desk and got the amazing letter. I had to read it a few times to really accept that it was the truth and not my imagination. I feel absolutely humbled and honored to be part of the HBS Admit group. My interviewer called me this afternoon too and it was wonderful to speak with him and to hear his confidence that I would be a great addition to the Harvard community.

At this point I am 90% sure I am going to attend Harvard, but I have to still check out my other options, especially once this crazy excitement dies down (although I am not sure if ever will!!). Harvard and Chicago have their admit weekends during the same weekend so that puts in me in a bind also ... what to do, what to do.

I am definitely still attending Go Blue Rendezvous though!

Congrats to everyone else who is getting to the end of this journey too! I can't believe that this whole process is almost over and that soon we all will be starting journies that we dreamed about for so long. Thank you for everyone in this community for your support as well. It really has been great to see everyone so supportive and helpful of each other. This has truly been an amazing process!

Oh and I won't be attending GBR unfortunately beacuse the Tuck ASW is on the same weekend :( .

Bombaydude said...

I know, I'm really disappointed that GBR is on the same weekend as the Tuck ASW. A Boston meetup sounds great..I'm up for one.

Yes,I'm in at Duke as well ! Are you a tennis player by any chance :)?

MBA Pundit said...

Totally awesome!!! Congrats. You might just as well get into Stanford and then you have a good problem to solve. I doubt that the Wharton waitlist matters anymore but I could be wrong :) I think not.
