Congrats. It's a bit curious they did not call (I'm sure you don't mind though). I'm sure you being in LatAm has something do do with it.

Question for all you admitted folks - Am I correct in assuming that, to be part of the Facebook group, one simply needs an offer of admission from Kellogg (as opposed to having to accept and put down a deposit etc.). I'm trying to get a handle on the approx number of acceptance that have gone out already. There are 463 members in the group currently.

That is correct, you just need an admission offer.

Healthcareguy,

A friend who got admitted to Kellogg in R1 validated what youngsnake just said. The admin team sends a facebook group invite to all admits. My friend also got in to a top 3 school and will not be going to Kellogg. He mentioned that he left the Kellogg group just last week and felt that there could still be a no of people in there who have been admitted elsewhere.

The one thing he said and that worries me is that he has heard from some people that the class size at Kellogg this year would be 530 instead of the usual 630-660 range. Have other guys heard this as well?

At DAK 1 I met quite a few folks who deliberately didn't join the facebook group, a couple didn't even have facebook (I know - malarkey!!). That being said, I'm sure folks on there have multiple offers, and when the dust settles, that number may shrink if people who aren't attending choose to leave.

I read that Kellogg plans to shrink the class size for its two year program, but as I understand it, this is the plan for the future and not the immediate. I'm not sure if it 'kicks in' this year.

As MBAlady said, this probably stems from the announced future plans for Kellogg to shrink it's 2y class size down to about 3 to 400 within 5 years and to increase the 1y program size at the same time. However, these plans were only formally announced in late 2011 so it is unlikely that they will even start to be implemented this year. For starters, Kellogg will have to openly push its 1y program and will need more time than the middle of an application year to do so.

You could be right that class size will be reduced but a 15% haircut in one year seems a bit extreme. As someone on the waitlist, that's what I'm hoping at least.

I also think looking at Facebook as a proxy for number of admits can be guide but caution against using it too closely. Likely there are many people that signed up for information/networking once admitted and never bothered to remove themselves if attending elsewhere. On the other hand, there likely are a bunch of people that never joined in the first place. It's two difficult to tell which case outweighs the other.

Thanks guys - that helps. Maybe it's just me, but I would not really want to be part of the group if I knew I was probably going to go elsewhere. But I guess a diverse class breeds diverse viewpoints. In any case, my gut tells me that a majority of the people in the Facebook group are likely to matriculate.

As for the class size, as someone who is waitlisted, I am inclined to side with Consulting2Finance. Dropping the class size without advance notice would be... "malarkey"! (Thanks mbalady - love that word)

Just for a point of reference, I'm in Kellogg fb group and I am not 100% decided on going yet. I think it's difficult to determine anything about how many admits/conversions there have been based on the facebook group. The class really won't take shape until late April/early May. People from R1 who paid deposits may forfeit to go to other schools and people who didn't join because they were undecided may jump on board once they commit to Kellogg. If you wind up on the summer WL, the facebook group would give a stronger sign to how much room is left at that point than it does now.

I agree with cheet. I'm obviously not in the Kellogg fb because i'm WLed, but I am participating in Booth and Tuck while I decide, and I joined Ross FB group when I was first admitted but I've not removed myself yet....
I wound't use FB as a good tool to project class size/number of admitted students
