I am located in Los Angeles and got the call about 20 mins ago! Very exciting!


Although I was disappointed to hear that Booth's admit weekend conflicts with Kellogg's DAK! The two Chicago schools were my top choices and I was hoping to make the call after spending some time with the students of each school...


Same here, will have to split the days one for each. Sequence will make a difference tho, :-D

Ha, it also conflicts with Tuck and Darden. Apparently, it's THE weekend for admitted students.

As a former admit-weekend squad leader, I can tell you that the sequence (order) in which you attend makes a huge difference. Subjectively, I think about 90% of people end up attending wherever they go for the first day.

I don't know what the recommendation should be then--should you go to the school your leaning towards in the second day so you give the other school a fighting chance with the first day? Or go to where you're leaning towards on the first day so you can just confirm your expectations and enjoy the rest of the weekend? I really don't know...

Calls were going out until the end of the afternoon in Round 1. I got my call around 3:45 CST in R1 (I live in the south).

Accepted to Booth!

I left my phone on my desk when I went to host a networking lunch for my org. Got the 733 call at 12:00PM EST (I'm in Boston). Again, remember what cheetarah and the others have said time and again: "IT AIN'T OVER TIL THE FAT LADY SINGS".

Keeping my fingers crossed for you all!

Will they leave a voicemail if you don't answer your phone? I get terrible cell service in my building and often I get voicemail alerts when my phone didn't even ring.

I think listening to Muse might be more epic, especially "Uprising"... video lyrics

"Call Me Maybe" and "Call Me" both work, but less epic.
