Another day. Will the decision come in the form of a call or an email?

Considering the Admissions Office is closed today from 11:30-5, I am going to guess it should be quiet today.

Someone above said they called the office and an update will be released by end of week (tomorrow probably). No idea how (phone or email)...? I assuming base on what I've read is that they call you if you have been admitted. Not sure what they do if you are dinged or continue to keep you on the WL.

"Considering the Admissions Office is closed today from 11:30-5". The amount of research we do on the admin office is astounding. We stop short of monitoring each adcom's personal movements and vacation plans

I called a few minutes ago, they told me "we don't know if any decisions will be made this week" but that Eileen should give us an update sometime soon. I called yesterday and was told to call back this morning if I did not hear back from them yesterday afternoon.

She told me to email Eileen if I had any pressing questions.

That sounds odd. Either they made some quick offers to people who have sway, or they are honestly waiting for people to turn down offers for space. Probably both. I wrote to her as well and no reply.

'update sometime soon'... that could mean anything. Was hoping an update by tomorrow. Do you guys think they did make any offers since that big cut Tuesday 5/24? I wonder how many people are really left on the waitlist now...wonder if they will ding more or just keep everyone waiting up until classes start and they actaully have their final count.

Comparing this to what they told other folks on this board yday, does that mean they made a few offers yday and they aren't sure if there are any more to be made?

Hey peeps. We were just in the chat and eskimoroll mentioned that 9 people joined the HBS Class of 2013 facebook group since Saturday. Not sure what this means, but thought I'd drop it in here for folks who weren't in the chat. Surely some of these are R3 stragglers... but maybe some of these are the reason the class count popped from 912 to 918 yesterday...

Of course there are only 684 people in the facebook group right now so take that with a grain of salt. We've had a few R1 and R2 stragglers that are discovering facebook a bit later.

It's comforting to know we have one more person join us that still hasn't heard anything. Hoping we all get some clarity on what our chances are tomorrow.

I'm a R2 admit and I haven't joined the facebook group and I have no immediate plans to. So, people joining the group now is not an indication of anything really. If there are only 684 people in a class of 918, it just means that there are ~200 people not aware of the group, not on facebook or not interested in joining the group.

Ding here too. Just got the email. Looks like I'll be moving to Chicago this fall.

I called them maybe 5-10 minutes before I received the email, and they told me they only made "maybe 1-2" offers of admission from the WL in the last two weeks.
