Holy flame war, Batman!

Things are getting a little testy over at the BusinessWeek forums. See the flame war that has erupted on the HBS thread. People need to just chill out. Sure, none of us enjoy the anxiety that goes along with waiting, or the fear and disappointment that comes along with not yet having received interview invites. But this is just a little bit childish (and if the people involved were truly interviewed by HBS, perhaps I'm better off not having them as classmates).

Good luck to everyone waiting for a decision from Chicago. Rumors are swirling that calls may start today for admitted students, even though Rose said in her chat last week that calls are only likely to start tomorrow, and even then that some admitted students may not get called until after the Wednesday morning decision release.

I keep forgetting why I seldom visit the BW forums, given that they are the most popular gathering sites for MBA applicants.

I remember now. Thank you for the reality check!

Hee hee. I once heard a quote that is appropriate (if not entirely PC) to this conversation:

In fact, it's beyond not PC, it's really very bad, but funny - funny in that way where you laugh and then feel bad about it. So anyway, the quote:

Arguing on the internet is like competing in the special olympics. It doesn't matter who wins, in the end, you're all still retarded.
