Omg, I just got a call and I'm in! So surprised since I was expecting to see an e-mail decision on Monday. So happy right now!

I'm a R2 applicant living in the New York area.


Are you an international living in the New York area? This is crazy! Will people who got wait listed and dinged get the status update today too?

I've never heard of any school calling to ding someone... I think you're probably in! :)


You know what would be messed up? If a school had the decision deadline on April 1st and called the dinged applicants...

You don't know yet if you have to wait until Monday. Since they're changing things up they could do phone calls both days.. that would be a horrible weekend of waiting though..

Exactly. Not knowing if every admit gets a phone call or some will just have to wait til Monday is silly. They know everyone talks about this stuff online and it just makes it much more stressful for all involved. Fuqua had my favorite process because they said they'd tell you on a specific date at a specific time. Makes it sooooo much less stressfull.

Yeah waiting for 4 days will be brutal. Either they should call everyone now or they should have waited for Monday.

True, but from a school that stands behind their team aspect and student run campus, it always seemed a bit impersonal that you found out that you were admitted through a computer...

I was called by Adcom.

I personally like the surprise, as it allowed me to have a nice tipple of whisky rather than worrying all weekend. As always, YMMV.

I was called by a member of the adcom, although he said I'd be contacted shortly by my Student Buddy and interviewer.
