This is a more well known blog but I'm still a little suspicious. First of all, it was posted on Thanksgiving. Secondly, no word from anyone else on Kellogg decisions? It's unlikely that Kellogg admissions would interrupt their turkey dinner to send this one guy a ding....

"Hello"
"-no the stuffing, Aunt Mary, not the mashed potatoes! Oh hi, this is Kellogg. You're rejected."
"What?"
"Happy Thanksgiving!"

No. Totally believable.

Nothing wrong with lurkers, or lurkers who just post stats once they get an admit. If anything, it's one more data point for us. People have varying levels of comfort in participating in online forums. I say, lurk away... we're all here to help each other regardless of participation level.

I was Summer WL last year and was encouraged to reapply this year... Does that mean if my application is about as good this year I am a shoo in???


I wish I could say that is true, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be so for most schools. Only one school I know of--Tuck--says that it historically favors reapplicants, and if you look at the school profile on BW, where applicant percentages are broken down, you'll see that this is true. (That is, compared to the general acceptance rate, the reapplicant acceptance rate is higher.)

All other schools strongly encourage reapplicants, for what I think are three reasons: 1) it's the most polite way of saying "we dinged you, but you could always try your luck next time", 2) the application fees may represent a revenue stream (albeit a very minor one), and 3) a larger applicant pool makes the school look more competitive, so it's in their best interests obviously to encourage reapplicants.

First time poster for Kellogg, been focused on another board, and just recently started reading the messages this week (regretfully since I was not aware that Kellogg called their applicants as far as two weeks before the decision date). Needless to say I am now checking my phone frequently.

Yesterday afternoon I was at my desk hearing my phone vibrate, only to see it was a telemarketer I have seen before. After I ignored the call, I noticed I had another missed call from an 847-number that had called at the same time, leaving no voicemail. I have no idea if that's AT&T's fault, but its fun to thank them for the added anxiety. The best part is it was probably not them, and now the game of jumping all over that number if it comes up again begins, and I can't wait to answer and sound so excited when some random guy asks me if I'm satisfied with my current cable service.

I actually think this waiting around is exciting, and the stress it creates is somewhat positive. Our expectations have caused this stress, because obviously we see enough value in ourselves that we should even be considered for such a great opportunity, let alone one that could come at any moment. I'd like to think that this stress is only because we know we have that shot others could only dream of. I'm guessing that of the people reading this there are a good amount of people who are frustrated, but if it's any consolation, you are probably frustrated because you know you are good enough. Of course, it helps that I have personally accepted the fact that being denied at any moment is a possibility, but I know that I'll be no worse off than I am now because of a rejection. For me, if getting rejected from one of the top schools in the world my first time around is the worst thing that ever happens to me, I would have lived a fantastic life. I'm sure that's true for the majority of you.

You can add me to the roll call, interviewed 10/5 (which seems a decade ago) in my hometown of Chicago-Go Bears

For those that say in - can you give us a small profile? I know it doesn't matter at this point but it helps for some reason....


770 GMAT, 3.8 GPA US state-school, 3yrs in investment research, solid but not extraordinary ECs
I would say my essays were good, but my Kellogg interview was average to below average (I was personable, but I felt nervous and caught myself rambling a couple times. It was my first interview).

Hope that helps!

My online status has not changed. When I talked to Deena she said I was the first admit she had spoken to and that was around 2pm CT.

Profile:
-3 years W/E at matriculation with Top Financial Services firm--2 years corp fin and 1 year credit
-700 GMAT
-3.6 GPA from top private undergrad (Ivy quality in Midwest)
-African American Female
-EXTENSIVE extracurriculars, both in undergrad and currently
-Felt like I really connected with my interviewer, especially about my e/c's
-Had extensive revisions to essays and thought they were pretty steller and clear about my goals, fairly emotional 'why this career path' essay that went into certain experiences in my background
-I was confident that I did everything I possibly could to get in; no regrets about essays or interviews

Hi all, just got the phone call and I'm in! Wow, my hands are still shaking. I think she said an email would be coming, but honestly I could barely pay attention. AT&T dropped the call about half way through (yep, Verizon here I come), but she was nice enough to call back.

Stats: Female, 28 at matriculation, GMAT 750, 6 years work experience in small biz marketing, 750 GMAT, 3.8 GPA top 20 private college, post-MBA plans = entrepreneurship. Really relieved to get in with my somewhat strange work history (was a ski instructor after I graduated!)

Hope to see some of you at DAK, and best of luck to the rest who have yet to hear!

edit: I applied to the full time 2Y program

Best of luck to you and congrats to your wife!

On a side note, what's the story behind your avatar? I first thought that might be Pauly D from Jersey Shore.


Thanks everyone, I'm sooooo excited for her. The great thing about having your spouse get in is that even if I get dinged I still have something to celebrate.

The avatar is a picture of one of the guys from the cult classic VH1 show Growing Up Gotti. I really think they paved the way for patriots like Pauly D. I chose it b/c the hair is glorious, the stare is hypnotizing, and radiant light coming off his white jean jacket makes him look almost angelic

I know this is a very stressful time for people (including myself). One of my peers at work is a Kellogg alum and reached out to a contact within the Admissions Office (not an Ad-com member itself though). Was told that the reason things are perceived 'slow' and why decisions are being rolled out this way is because they literally are still making final decisions for a large group of students. In other words, if you haven't received a decision, it is because they just haven't decided yet.

Hey djknif, Washington DC here too. Lets assume they are calling geographically ;-)


During my admissions call last Friday I asked the rep why some people were called on Wednesday, some on Friday, and some still waiting. I told him that I was awaret that people had been getting calls in large numbers since Wednesday and that I had been going crazy for two days. He laughed and said that they actaully read these blogs sometimes (interesting/scary). He said that we give them way too much credit for their decision communication methodologies. He said that they have a stack of admitted applicants. The admissions staff splits them up and works through their respective piles as quickly as possible. I happened to be in the Friday stack and that I shouldn't read any further into it.

I like to think that I willed my admit into existence by obsessively checking blogs and status page. I guess I was just in the Friday stack.

Longtime lurker, current jdmba 11 applicant still waiting to hear back

Spoke to my friend, a current Kellogg student, volunteers at admissions: the way it works is that the admissions counselor is given a list of names to call each day in no particular order. It's all random. Also, last year they were calling until January 10. So while I feel like I am being tortured like the rest of you, it is better than last year at least.

So at the end of the day, we can conclude that the dings come in the morning email, and that everything else is random. Maybe that alleviates some stress for some of you. Any other extrapolations of a small sample size of data I wouldn't rely on.
