Just spoke with my WL officer this morning. I actually found the convo to be pretty useful, she gave me a specific issue she wanted more information about, so I'll go ahead and do that before they start WL movement.

Now that appukutty is off to sunny Palo Alto is there anyone else here who plans on pursuing (no matter how fruitlessly) the Kellogg WL aside from myself and GoBruins?


+1 here.

I am in bucket #1, meaning they didn't want specific information from me. All they want is a single update letter covering a couple generic topics. Bucket #2 is for people who have specific issues/areas to address.

Not sure which one is better to be in. I was also told to tell them if I was admitted elsewhere and whether they need to make a decision by a certain date. My WL officer told me that we'll see movement in the R2 WL in early May.


Can you let me konw what the generic topics were? I didn't even get that info.

I have earned an admission to Stanford GSB. I am thinking of withdrawing from the waitlist from Kellogg. Good luck to those still waiting.

Hi guys,

Good luck to those of you still on the waitlist. I hope I can help a bit. I submitted my deposit to Kellogg and accepted my enrollment a while ago, but I think I will withdraw from Kellogg and opt out for somewhere else. Could any of you tell me what are the proper steps I should take to withdraw my commitment. I know I will not get my deposit back, but I just want to make sure I do it in the most polite manner. Thank you guys! I wish all of you the best luck

I would just write your admissions liaison a polite email, thanking them for admitting you, letting them know that you've changed your mind and are instead planning on matriculating at school X. If you're so inclined, you could let them know why you've changed your mind :)

Thanks so much! I will do so in the next couple of days. It's really a shame that I couldn't join many of you at Kellogg.

Hey GB, why don't you update your blog sometime? It's getting a bit stale... :wink:

Also, I have a feeling the WL will work out in your favor...

haha you're like me, I heard everyone say mid-may, then it was early may then end of april. But around 4/13-4/14 there were 4 people on BW off the WL, at least 1 was and R2.

I think mid-may still holds true since that's when the R2 deposits are due. BTW anyone notice that GC R2 matriculations rates on the first page are crazy, all but one admit is matriculating...

That is pretty crazy. Guess they've gotta make up for the 36% yield in R1. (which I honestly thought was quite surprising)

I genuinely think you'll make it off the waitlist though. I'm gonna look forward to seeing you in the Fall.

Where did you hear 36% I have never seen or heard of schools sharing individual round yields.

Just got a message from my WL manager - she noted that theyre expecting to release more waitlist decisions in a couple weeks or so. Good luck to anyone still holding out!

Thanks Bostonsparky, I like your WL manager better. Mine doesn't really tell me anything.
