    Mine as well! BU asked the toughest questions so far, and I've interviewed with much higher ranked schools.

    btw...
    Some OB program updates that I have heard of:
    1. truly top-top Management (micro-OB) has given out offers. (the one that gave out rejection letters last week. If you did not receive rejection letter last friday but have yet to receive calls, it probably is gonna be a relatively good news??)
    2. another truly top-top Micro-OB program are in the process of final round of interviews. Since this school said explicitly that all accepted students must receive interviews during their webcast info session, if you did not receive any interview, I guess... well... I just hate that... why cant they just give out straight rejection from the beginning and only keep those advancing to the next round.
    3. an top European school has given out interviews
    To the first school you mentioned, I believe Iím in that group. I have not received an interview request but wasnít rejected in the slate of notices that went out last week. Any sense of what that means?

    if you are referring to W School's micro-OB, the interview invites were sent out mid-Jan & look out for phone calls from Philly. If you did not receive interview invite but did not receive email to check decision, did you check on your application portal as well (if rejected, the letter is in your app portal)? If not, I guess it might still be a good chance that you are not really rejected (& maybe still in their consideration)...

    Got my first acceptance today guys! Not the top of my list, but it is a huge relief. At least I'm sure what I would be doing this Fall.

    They started grilling me from the word go! I don't think I handled it properly.
