I am also in for the R1 application at Fuqua. My profile goes this way:
I wanted to know that if anyone of you is consulting an admission counselor for preparing your essays and other application material. If yes can you please provide me the contact of the same so that I may harness the benefit as well. I am looking for one based in Delhi/NCR
I got an email on Nov 4 from gradadmissions informing me about my recent submission. They provided a student id and asked to check all my information. Also said to check my status time and again to know of updates. I found that my TOEFL scores weren't posted on their website. So I mailed adcom about that. They replied asking me to be patient saying that it takes time to upload the scores. They however confirmed that they've received the report. :)
Now just waiting..
I applied to Fisher in R1
GMAT 700 / 5.5
IIM Work-ex 5yrs at matriculation (2yrs International)
B.Tech. from NIT
I am currently a first year MBA student at the The Fisher College of Business, Ohio State University. This thread is for all the prospective MBA students at Fisher college applying for fall 2011. Just about a year ago, I was in a similar position wrecking my brains to decide the perfect fit for me. And so I can imagine the high levels of anxiety, confusion and indecisiveness.
Please feel free to get in touch with me for any questions you may have. I would try and resolve the queries to my best possible knowledge and resources available. For starters, you can visit the Fisher College website at Fisher College of Business | The Ohio State University to get a feel of the college.
JFYI I just got an admit email from Fisher!

Don't get overwhelmed!
First, we belong to different pool. But you have a big challenge- how to differentiate yourself from rest of the IT crowd as major chunk lies there. So you have to identify strengths unique to yourself. But at the same time, most of the admits from India come from IT background, mostly because they can afford the costly US programs and also they are much more informed and aware about the international opportunities.
Second, in US schools, mid 80% of class consists of the 3-6 years exp. range. So you have an advantage there. (I am a bit too qualified for most of the US schools)
All the best for your apps.
