She said that there's nothing wrong with my application and that the school doesn't require any additional information at this point, although any updates are welcome. She said to submit the updates within this week, or latest by Monday next week for the updates to be considered. Hope this helps.


Thanks, can you share your bg?

I'm on the waitlist also - from R2. Just joining this forum.

My waitlist coordinator said no additional info was needed and to submit anything I would like to add/update by early next week. She didn't indicate the format this should be in. I'm seeing here some people are sending it in a letter format. Did anyone hear that this is the preferred way?

Yesterday, I spoke with my WL manager and he said there was no need for corrections or additional information regarding my application. It is just a matter of (un)available postion.
He also said that there are little chances of receiving any news on April 16th (I must say I was disappointed at this point). But let's hope for the best!
Good luck everyone!

What does "little chance" mean? She meant Everyone one has little chance or you?

In my understanding, he referred to all of us. He argued that many of those who have already received an offered will not make the decision before the deadline and thus few spots will be open on April 16th.
Sounds reasonable.

Has everyone mostly been told to provide "updates" ? I was told by my WL manager to provide "any information I didn't include in my app but would like to add". Those seem like different things to me...this is kind of frustrating :)

6 of one, half dozen of another..same thing...you can't possibly expect all WL managers to use the exact same words when speaking with every WL applicant..

That's a good point. My thinking was that an update is anything you've done since the application deadline. Things you didn't get to include in your app could be an EC from college or from say 2009. I suppose anything we send to them is helpful

My WL contact said that I could send an update, such as a promotion, salary update, or any change in responsibilities.
I asked if more recommendation letters from alumni were welcome and he said they weren't.
So no update from my side, and the "little chance on April 16th" was also mentioned.

Question for wailisted applicants...

Did anyone happen to call Kellogg Admisssions today? What information did the admissions office provide? Did they give any feedback or gave an indication what can be done to improve the chances?

Thanks,
Ash


I called and was given a point of contact for my application. I haven't had any more communication beyond that.


Same here. I talked with my contact and he told me there was nothing wrong with my app. It was just a matter of waiting to see how they would fill the spots.


Anyone has Y C as WL manager? Did you succeed to get in touch, seems she is too busy, didn't succeed so far, will drop her a mail.

I do, and same result. Her voicemail said she was out last week, so I wasn't expecting a response anytime soon.

Has anyone spoken with Waitlist Manager M.G.? I have not been able to reach this person as of yet -- was wondering if anyone else has had a similar or dissimilar experience.

I left a voicemail with MG Monday April 2nd and have not heard back. I suppose I will email him today though I expect a communication along the lines of, "you're application is complete, you just need to be patient . . . "
