Yale interview invitation

It's been over 2 months since I applied to Yale. I almost lost hope and thought I was a ding without interview but apparently my application was considered for round 3 and I got my interview invite yesterday!! Not sure why I wasn't considered for round 2, maybe they didn't get my GMAT score in time. I've scheduled my interview after 27th march, the day when big W results are getting out.

And btw, I was going thru the blogs of yalies and found this very inspiring quote from Rocky Balboa on one of the blogs. Some good words for all anxious applicants who need to keep their hopes alive...

"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!"
