Dear fellow PGs,

As we wait for decisions/interview invites from schools, here is one way to distract our minds away :

Most of us spent several hundred hours researching which US B-Schools were a good fit for us. It would be extremely useful for future PGs to see where we applied and why we found a fit for the schools we applied.

Note that this thread is only to find out where PGs tend to apply among US B-Schools. I am sure there will be separate threads that will follow to gather the admits/dings stats once admits come along.

So, with this back-ground, ask you all to reply to the threads with the following info (e.g. my profile).
