Ding. Closure indeed. For a school trying to train the next generation of leaders, they need to improve their communication.

I'm excited to head to Ross this fall for the MBA/MS with the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise. Ditto on the good wishes for everyone else.

Just got an email saying if I want to stay on the summer waitlist to let them know by the 18th or I will be automatically removed.

To those of you who were dinged today, my condolences, but enjoy the closure.

How many of you (like me) were pushed to the Summer Waitlist?

Did anyone receive an admit call today?

Hey All,

Just found out today that I got in!!! I am in a total state of shock. I completely wrote off business school this year and I still haven't processed that I actually got into school. Got the call around 4PM CT.

Good luck to those of you still on the waiting list - I guess anything can happen :)

Have there been any other reports of recent acceptances? Has anyone else reached out to their WL Manager for additional detail?

I just declined my spot on the Summer Waitlist. Kellogg's a great school but was my fifth choice even before being waitlisted. I would have loved closure and the ability to weigh my options, but at this point there is no way I'm going to cancel plans at Darden (and cough up a substantial scholarship money) if Kellogg comes to me late with an offer. Hopefully someone who really wants Kellogg moves up a spot.

If I can ask, judging by your name you're trying to go into finance. Why did you choose Darden over Booth? Seems like Booth has stronger recruiting into finance careers, not that Darden is bad by any means.

Anybody had any updates between last week and this monday? Any idea/speculation when they will decide to fill additional spots?

Anyone have any updates on dings or admits in the last couple of weeks? Anyone drop off the waitlist or decide not to go after being admitted? Anyone have a guess as to when they will give out the next round of admits for people off the waitlist?

I saw at least 1 person get into HBS off the HBS WL who was also admitted to Kellogg. They indicated they would be accepting HBS. That would open up at least 1 seat on the summer waitlist assuming Kellogg replaces every lost admit. I would bet that there will be at least a few H/S/W WL'ers get in who are also admitted to Kellogg.

If last year's forum is any indicator at all, there were a decent share of GClub members admitted off the summer WL.

On the flip side, an "insider" mentioned on here that their yield was up this year, which would lower the amount of summer WL'ers accepted.

As usual, I think it's going to just be a game of chance that will play out through mid-August.

Best of luck to you and the rest of us still waiting.

Ha...I got a "ding" email from Kellogg this morning despite me removing myself from the waitlist nearly 2 weeks ago. I'm sure it's just a way of them formally removing me, but it's sort of like 1) Dating a girl who becomes disinterested in you but strings you alone 2) Becoming uninterested and deciding to break it off and dump her and 3) her deciding to break up with you 2 weeks later 4) Me thinking "wait we were still dating?"

Has anyone received any news? Has anyone (other than people who removed themselves from the waitlists) been dinged? It doesn't look like it, according to this forum at least. Also - does anyone have any idea how many people are floating around on this summer waitlist? My WM has told me the list is small, but I don't really have any idea what type of number that mean - just curious.

I have the same questions and would love insight if anyone has any.

My speculation is that some people could hear after the 4th holiday, but it is pure speculation.

I am on the summer WL. I was also told that the list is small at this point.

I think it's a safe bet to assume at least some of us will hear from them in the next 2-3 weeks. I would be surprised if it was very shortly after the 4th, though. Previous years had a jump in activity around July 20th and then again towards August 10th. It makes sense considering how close that is to the start of classes and the likelihood most people have made up their minds on where they are going to attend.

Since this is such a fun process, and since we're all under the impression that the Summer WL is "small", I went ahead and put together the list of people who've self-identified as being Summer WLers on this thread. They/we are:

mappleby
castor
bertreynoldz
abcdefghijk
abacab
greenwave86
utlnghrn34
ebart
unit157

That makes nine of us, plus the untold legions smart enough (at this point) to avoid this thread. If anyone else wants to be added to this list, PM me. Here's hoping some/all of us get some good news this month.
