If WiFi Dongle is associated successfully to Access-Point then is there any way to get notification ?

I want to run some script (dhclient), if and only if, association is successful.

Only way, that I know, is to record the log of wpa_supplicant with verbose mode, and search for the keyword EAPO authentication completed successfully.

But, I guess, there must be some other way to do so.

command-line solution is required as I normally work in CUI. I'm using Ubuntu-13.10.
