Congrats to those who got THE CALL!!

Do you mind sharing where you're based at?

I'm based in NYC and did the following:
-very plain video (me talking in front of a camera for 90 seconds, divided into three sections on why Booth is right for me)
-GLOWING recommendation letter from a previous supervisor (honestly makes me wonder why I didn't use them as my primary rec for Booth)
-an update letter I cobbled together highlighting my recent achievements (I freaked out when I discovered an egregious typo in the very last sentence, but it worked out!)

There are definitely more calls coming. I thought of my GMAT Club peeps, so I asked. He said they weren't very fair into the calls.

Congratulations to those who got the call!

I just noticed a strange status update dated May 1. Do other people also have this update?

Call at 3:30 PM, NYC time. I just checked my status online and it still has the waitlist letter from March 21. The lady who called me said the official acceptance letter would be on the website tomorrow.

CONGRATS!! I think we were all definitely rooting for you buddy. This week feels a lot better than the Kellogg silent treatment from last week IMO.

Got in off the waitlist at 4 pm EST. I could not be happier, I saw the message on my phone at work and I had to call back in a different location. I was so excited, I didn't hear if she said that the email with details would come today or tomorrow, did anyone get an email yet?

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I never had a way with words, but trust me, my face looks like it's trying to say this: !!!!!!!!!!!

Columbia vs. Booth is going to be a pretty difficult decision. From your post, I'm not exactly sure which way you're leaning -- could you be a little more direct please? :)
