Last year they started making calls 1 week before the decission release date. And ofcourse they only call the admits.

I know it is not rolling admission but it the past they did start making calls some days before the deadline. It would be interesting to see how they will manage to call all the admits in 1 DAY! :))

Anyways.... I am really anxeus to see who got in, Tuck is my #1 school .... so these ppl will all be my potential classmates :)


During my visit that was what was brought up that they bumped the decision day up. They were adament that would not happen this year. I guess they had a huge jump in ED and had already received a ton of R1 applications (this was a few weeks before the due date for R1).


So, river, do they release on 13th, not 14th??? :shock:

Sorry for the confusion...someone asked if they were going to bump up the day this year since they did last year. The woman said they wouldn't this year because of the increase in application. They seem to be sticking to that.

Hmmm, vodka for fun, vodka for sorrow, vodka for waiting :) never thought about it. But that's too too obvious, especially in winter-time :)

so this year there is again a huge increase in applications? I remember last year there was a huge increase also.
The way things are going the top schools will have acceptance rate of 1% in a few years. I expect this year the acceptance rate of top 10 schools to be single digit.
The MBA market is getting crazy guys!

OMG OMG OMG!!!!

This waiting for a ding is killing me. I wonder how many clear admits Tuck has....

Another 20 hours to wait. Sigh.

I'm all prepared to hit a bottle of Johnnie Walker to tide me over my sorrows.

This difference should be even more huge to cover one day difference. Only one day to go... Like Christmas countdown - decisions deadline comes in 28 hours 33 minutes.
