There should be a link under that leading to a letter (if they've posted all decisions)

In!!! International applicant here. Got an email from Fuqua Admissions re: a status update and my heartbeat just went through the roof. Currently assigned out of my home country, so they couldn't reach me on the phone number that I provided on my application since I'm not using it overseas.

Congrats to all admits! I hope I can make it to BDW (very unlikely given the pace of my project).

Guy's what happens if your interviewer reaches out to you after a week or so and tells you that you are in if you promise to accept the offer and in the mean time you reject an offer from another school and you get dinged on decision day...

That doesn't happen. You will get a decision in any case by Monday.
If they say you are admitted..you are.
They dont change the decision

What? That wouldn't happen. Your interviewer will only call you after you're admitted so your supposed timeline makes no sense anyways.

This makes no sense. Did adcom call you to admit you? And then the status update online is a ding?

I figured it was a yield play to make sure I dont decline. The interviewer contacted me a couple of days after. I know it sounds weird, but... thats the way it is. I am just happy I rejected one school, but still have two more that I was admitted to and waiting to hear from Kellogg next week. Btw; if I wouldn't be telling this story, I would not believe it, lol.

Were you WL from EA/R1? I know people who get off WLs and the first thing they ask is if you want the spot. Most people say yes, whether that's the truth or not...
