Hi Folks, Are we going to receive the decision all on the same day? Or they will do batch by batch.
Cheers,

According to the adcom, they'll call people on February 1. Looking at past years, some people got a call the next day though. Also, they don't update the website immediately. So, you have to wait by the phone for a call.

Well, it looks like they've at least gone through my application. If I do get admitted, I'm going to have to take the statistics course:

Prerequisite Courses:
College-level Mathematics: Complete
Statistics: Incomplete

Hi,

I think by default they go through ALL admission packets to check for completeness
Based on what I read in the forum last year, folks got calls 1 day before the actual day or on the actual date

Hope this helps

It's interesting that they actually calls everyone accepted. (Or do they call to decline as well?)

I believe they only call those accepted

I got exactly the same result:
College-level Mathematics: Complete
Statistics: Incomplete
I think one can take the waiver exam as well (in case admitted), right?

Yeah you can take an exam. If you pass you're good, if not, you get to take a class. I'm probably just going to take the class if I'm admitted. I could use the refresher as it's been almost a decade since I've done any statistics past what's required for the GMAT.

I am seeing messages about application status from members here. I am assuming an interview is pretty much required prior to admission. Have you been interviewed by adcom already ?

Don't read anything into it. They'll complete the analysis for all submitted apps before the notification date. The analysis has nothing to do with whether you are admitted.

To answer a question posted above, yes, all admitted students are interviewed by an adcom prior to admission.

To answer another question, yes, all admitted students will receive a welcome call. Note, there were a couple of students who didn't receive a call that were admitted, however, that was only because of a mixup. And no, they won't call if you're not admitted.

Looks like my "Statistics Course" requirement column is not updated yet. However, it's updated for most of them here on this forum. Initially, I thought this was not a big deal. But, come to think of it, if the AdCom has already decided that one is NOT going to make it to the class, why would they bother updating that section? :shock: It doesn't make any sense to me. Now, I am trying to read between the lines here and assuming that if the AdCom updates that section, then that person is IN. :) This could be just my anxiety playing a prank on me - 2 weeks before the deadline. :)

Step back for a second and take a breath. All it means is that they haven't gotten around to reviewing your file yet. There are still a couple weeks until the deadline and I'm sure they're working through everything as fast as they can, but there are a lot of applications. I interviewed a couple weeks before you. So, chances are your file is just further down in the stack.


Well.. I really hope you are right, packet82! :)

A couple of weeks left for the outcome on R1 applications. I hope they continue to call applicants for interviews and not waitlist them without one. :-)


I am also getting a little nervous as I did not receive an invitation for an interview yet :?

Well, I did interview but not nearly as well as I had hoped, and I'm seeing blanks in my statistics requirement section too.

Two weeks seems awfully long especially when you're having sleepless nights :?
