They began making calls on Thursday. Keep up hope...I wouldn't be surprised if they continue to make some calls tomorrow.

Got dinged. Results were just updated online.
I really don't know what more I could do to get an admit. I reworked my essays, had a good score, great work experience and finally, a really good interview with a 2nd year student. I am dumbfounded.

I am sorry to hear the svrider. I am sure you have equally good, if not better options ahead of you. Keep up the spirit and best of luck.

Dinged as well. Well my sentiments are similar to svrider. The more schools say that they consider applications in their entirity and there is no quota for specific nationalities, the more I am convinced that such profiling takes place at schools.

tsaditya and svrider, I am sorry about the dings. Keep the faith. Good days are ahead of you. Are there others schools you are waiting on?

Thanks ncp & kirank.
Chicago is the last awaited result but I am not holding out too much hope for it.
Btw, I can't believe gmatclub went 0 for 3 at Darden in R2...
