You've waited for one month. We are only one week from maybe knowing our destiny on Kellogg. Just think that if they didn't think you were strong enough, they would have dinged you already! :-D

Do you believe they will let us know before the 28th, since the Round 2 deadline is on the 26th?

No reason not to think so..It wouldn't make sense to me to start informing waitlisters only after all R2 applicants have been informed..All decisions would anyway have been made by now except for R2 applicants who could be moved to the waitlist..

That's just me though..no idea what the Kellogg ad-com has in mind!

My take is that they are going to grant admit from WL based on the yield of R1/R2. So March 6 is a deposit day, lots of R1 admits would decline; and in this week, some of the R2 admits will also decline Kellogg, WL is to fill the hols left by those admits. We'll see in less than a week. Hang in there, fellas!

Well, it looks like I will be joining you all on the Kellogg waitlist. They say nothing worthwhile is easy...

It looks like for Round 2 folks the waitlist notification dates are April 16 and May 9.

Also joining R2 waitlist, for those of you who are currently on the wait list, would you consider re-taking GMAT if your quant score was low (66%)?

I wanted to ask the WL officer, but it says not to contact them until the week of April 3, which would def be too late to hit the April 16th decision.

What do you all think?

You should definitely wait until April 3rd. After you've talked with your wait-list manager, there's two options: He/She will ask for some update or to clarify something regarding your application (or maybe ask you to re-take your GMAT) or will tell you that there's nothing you can do, it is just a matter to see if there's a spot left.

My quantitative was the same as yours, and the GMAT score as well and they did not asked me to retake it. On the other hand, I am still on the waitlist, so who knows?

Thank you. Very kind words. No matter who the candidate is, this process is always a crapshoot.

I don't think it would be too late if you wait til April 3. You get the score Q/V score instantly and assuming you did ok on the AWA the first time it won't be a problem a second time. I'm sure the school can review your application without it.

Just a point to note folks (R2 WLers)..

Although the dates mentioned on the FAQs are April 16 and May 9, these are NOT set in stone! During R1, the dates mentioned initially were Jan 24th and Feb 14th. The folks who were notified on the first date were those from whom Kellogg wanted some clarifications..stuff like GMAT score report, clarification on goals essay or things like that..The second date was arbitrarily changed from Feb 14th (on Feb 14th) to Mar 28th without any prior communication. I believe only one person was notified (ding) on Feb 14th. All the others, myself included, are still watiing...

Plan your updates accordingly and don't try to rush your updates in. If you get a helpful WL coordinator, he/she may very well truthfully tell you that most of you might not hear on April 16th...

The website says not to contact them until April 3... does that include email as well as by phone?

Just spent a while going through the whole 2011 thread. Makes for some pretty depressing reading about people hanging on by a thread and receiving very little in the way of communication. But quite a few people got admitted, most were after rd1/2 deposits were due, after rd3 deposits were due and well into summer. Best of luck all.

I read it too....not necessarily a whole lot to be optimistic about but it does show it's not the end of the world yet. One encouraging thing was there were 2 or 3 people admitted with very similar backgrounds to me (of course every year is completely different). Some of the final folks seemed to have gotten in towards the end of August, so we could potentially have another 5 months of this.

It seems like most will learn by late May and it also seems that the thought of anyone really finding out by mid April is a pipe dream.
