Has anyone heard back from their AdCom contact yet? I called and left a voicemail this past Monday, but that's it...

To all R1 applicants, I have some official news. After trying multiple times to reach my assigned admission counselor over the last few days, moments ago I was able to get in touch with her. She told me that we should expect an email next week as to whether we wish to remain on the waitlist or whether we wish to opt out. The dates in the FAQ were NOT correct.

As of right now, they are still shaping the the class with R2 applicants. They hope to make some more waitlist decisions as soon as they can.

I hope that provides some clarity to everyone. Certainly before the end of the month, we will all receive an update and a chance to decide to stay on the waitlist or withdraw.

Got waitlisted to the 2Y program today. Is everyone assigned a waitlist manager? And is that manager forthcoming with what to do next?

I successfully got off the waitlist in R1. Yes everyone is assigned a waitlist manager but unless they found anything specifically lacking (which apparently happens for only a small percentage of waitlisters), they will not tell you anything very specific.

So my advice is to follow the instructions (including waiting till 4/4) and then send out meaningful updates (about once a month) can be professional or EC but only meaningful stuff somehow relevant to your app. If you have any Kellogg current students or alums who know you really well (to the extent of commenting on your personality and fit with Kellogg) then you can request them to send in a letter of support. Not sure if that matters but worth a try.

I think in R2 lot of other folks with admits from other schools will be less motivated to follow up so those of you sticking up for Kellogg have a better chance as the adcom will know who is definitely guaranteed to come if accepted.

FYI to the new members of the Kellogg waitlist -- the R1 Waitlist has had limited GC movement... (i think like one admit?, handful of dings)

I spoke with my WL manager earlier today and received the following response (roughly):

"Where we are now in the process is seeing how the class is rounding out. We did release some decisions on the May 11th deadline, and are just seeing how the class is looking. We plan on releasing more decisions in the next week. If you still do not hear anything in the next week you will most likely be contacted and asked if you want to join the summer WL; however, at this time we have not yet reached our decision for summer WL candidates."

Bottom line: Next week should have more decisions coming in. They probably gave their WL admits only a few days to decide (similar to Duke), and spots will open up if they choose to decline. My guess is more dings will come next week too.

Would you mind sharing your profile? I applied R2 and have a lower quant score too, curious if that means an automatic ding or WL for me.[/quote]

Sure! 710 total / 95% verbal / 68% quant. I was finance undergrad, 5 years work experience in investment banking/private equity.[/quote]

Thanks for sharing...that makes me sad, because my quant is even lower than that and I really want to go to Kellogg [/quote]

That was just one piece of feedback I was able to get, I don't think anyone's application is hinging on one score. Everyone's profile will be different so you can't really use someone else as a benchmark (your gpa is higher than mine).

I received a wake up call from Kathy from Admissions at 7:50am Shanghai time (near 6pm Evanston time)! She informed me that I had been accepted into the 2 year program. After I came out of my sleeping stupor I realized the enormity of the information and shrieked. To which she replied, I hope that means it's good news! Which of course, it is. I'm accepting their offer!

My GMAT score is an even 700 - high quant, low verbal. I was an economics major / accounting minor from a top 20 public university with a 3.4 GPA. I started my career in public accounting, earned my CPA, moved onto private equity investment management before I took some time off to travel the world ... bringing me to Kenya to do some non-profit consulting at a microfinance institution then to a start up in Shanghai, where I currently work.

I sent in two updates to my WL manager, one in mid January and one just one week ago (in anticipation of this first notification deadline). In my first conversation with my WL manager, she offered specific feedback that she wanted me to address in my first letter about my career track record & forward focus. In my second letter I included two significant updates - 1 professional (additional responsibility) and 1 personal (EC) as well as talking about the reasons why Kellogg is a good fit for me, including a few anecdotes about alumnae I've met in the past year traveling around the world.

Hope this helps. Keep your faith. Good things DO happen to those who wait.

I would at least wait until they are done sending out R2 decisions, because they most likely won't get back to you before then and you don't want your email to get lost. But, I would get in contact soon after that date, b/c I had to call several times just to get the correct person (the receptionist gave me to the 1 year person at first, and it's hard to get them on the phone sometimes).

Got the same email here too...this is a bunch of BS!!! 6 months of waiting for this...F Kellogg, Booth here I come!

Just curious, how has everyone elses experience been with other programs compared to the crappy way we've all been treated by Kellogg? For me, Booth was by far more professional. Any other thoughts?

I agree... and I don't think I'm waiting around to endure more of it all summer on their waitlist. See you at Booth!

Has any R2 WL candidates received information regarding their POC for admission today yet? The FAQs suggested we wait until this week to contact the Adcom and I thought may provide us with a POC to contact.

You have to call the Adcom in order to understand the name of your POC

I'm especially interested to hear if anyone was told to re-take the GMAT or take a class.

Posted from my mobile device

I called my WL manager and asked if there were any glaring issues with my application. She said that there was nothing really to improve upon and that they were waiting to see how the rest of round 3 shapes up. I mentioned that my GPA (3.44) was a little below average and that I was planning on retaking some classes online. She discouraged me from doing that and said that it would not be a good use of my time.

FYI: If you do need to redo any classes, check out LSU's online classes...ridiculously cheap ($350 for 3 credits/hours) and fairly easy.

Today is the big day for us on the WL, good luck to all, hopefully some of us get some good news. There were very few calls for either WL decision days in R1 and slightly more, but still few email rejections. Similarly, today is probably not going to be a big day for either. They're waiting for peeps to make decisions about whether to attend before they tell us anything and that's probably not happening until May or later. Manager Status: Never doing it again.

The first R1 WL notification date was Feb 18 (Friday). 2 admits received their notifications on Feb 21 (Monday). So, we might see the same trend this go around. There would probably be some movement in the coming days, negative and positive. So don't fret yet over the lack of news. Again, good luck!

Honestly, I don't think that is a factor$2,000 out of \$160,000 (1.25%) is not a huge opportunity cost in the scheme of things.

I'm going to contact my WL manager today, and she has been very helpful and responsive. I will post any useful info.
