Anybody tried to call and schedule the interview today? No one picks up. This whole process is weird. I applied for round 1. If decision comes out tomorrow, what my status is going to say? I got the interview invite today. and they mention in the email that they will release decisions on a rolling basis....feels like being waitlisted


At least you have an interview invite in hand. Once interviewed they'll let you know when a decision has been rendered - this is better than being waitlisted.

On a waitlist some schools evaluate candidates in subsquent rounds, or not until the end of the application cycle. Also - this is the big part - a waitlist is generally used to manage yield in two cases:

1) Not enough addmitted applicants excepted an offer to fill the class.

2) Applicants who paid the deposit became a no-show over the summer - more often than not because they were accepted off a more prestigious school's waitlist, and this causes a ripple effect across the B-school landscape.

I have a question with regard to the second point you made. Is it okay to pay the deposit and then not go to that school? I mean, other than losing the money, is there any other implication?

My opinion is yes. It happens all the time. It's only unethical to do this if its an early decision application where the school says it's binding and you'll withdraw your applications to other schools.

If you were on your top choice school's WL but accepted by no.2, it would be dangerous not to put a deposit down on no.2 seeing how the WL isn't guaranteed. But if a spot opens up? I don't think anyone can blame you. Again, that's why schools have waitlists.

Is it possible to get wait-listed without interview?


i remember seeing this from another forum:

there will be five categories after tomorrow:

1. Admitted after interview
2. Dinged after interview
3. Dinged w/o interview
4. Wait-listed after interview
5. wait-listed w/o interview



I know you guys have talked about "standby" as a form of waitlist. I know what being wait-listed means at a normal school, but could being wait-listed at Johnson mean that we are still in the running for a normal R1 admission because they haven't even reviewed our application yet?



i think ppl get wait-listed because johnson thinks that these applicants are not good enough.

i don't think they are still in the process of reading round 1 applications. the members of the adcom are welled organized. one application needs 20 mins (according to Christine's interview), with 5 people working, 7 hours a day, they can review over 100 applications a day. i think the official number of round 1 applications is a little over 500. they can easily get that done within a week or two.

also, i have seen invitation went out to applicant who submitted on the deadline. i know they separate the applications by regions, but within the same region, i assume that it is first come first serve. if they already get to the applications that submitted on the deadline, i am pretty sure they are done with reviewing by now.

anyway, good luck to everyone, especially the ones like me who still hoping for an interview. looks like we need a lot of luck...

spent too much time on refreshing the page, gotta go back to work :)

Thanks all! It was Christine. Kind of crazy since I could picture her face from the photo on the website. I'm in Germany - so she did say that she wanted to call before it was too late. But I'm a US applicant - so know I'm always in the North American pile.

Johnson's great, so we'll see how the rest of the week goes. Kellogg was an absolute and wonderful surprise for sure!

Hi, I have been mostly reading through the thread everyday for the last couple of weeks, when I was hoping to see some movement in my app status.. submitted on 17th Oct, still showing "Submitted..."
What's kinda weird is that no one from around South Asia (except for one invite reported) got any decent response from the adcom.

I was going thru the website too. Is there any update space? The blog is stale with last post on 11/11.

thanks.
