Not sure if freetz was a 1Y or 2Y app, but it seems like most, if not all of the changes today, have been for the one yr program.

Looks like the case. I remember reading their adcom member talking about more seats and increasing focus on 1 yr program starting this year. May be they're just prioritizing the 1 YR program.

Let's see.....


Just got an email saying I continue to be on the waitlist. the wait continues!

I can see the flow from adcom's perspective.

- Many of us are R1 applicants
- R1 accepts deposit deadline was a week or 10 days ago. So they know who from R1 that was accepted is finally attending.
- R2 regular decision date is 21st March.
- By April WL update date, adcom will have a good idea (Post R2 deposit deadline) about the overall class picture.
- Then they can decide whom to admit based from the R1 and R2 WL pool.

I see the flow, but that doesn't help when you're on the waiting side. Bottomline... nothing till we file our taxes (15 April).
Best luck....

@ tkk . . . sort of makes sense but since most of us fall into the bucket of "waiting for a spot to open up" I would guess 5/7 is our date. That is probably about when R2 sends in their deposits and they can truly see how the class shapes up.

Of course at this point I just want to get in but I REALLY wanted to have the DAK experience

All we can hope now is that a bunch of the R1 admits who put their deposits down end up getting in elsewhere R2 and backing out.

Well, I woke up to another WL email. I guess that the unpleasant wait continues.

i received an e-mail early this morning (inbox time 2.25 am, 12-mar-13) to remain on the waitlist - R1 applicant, India, waiver, then telephonic. As time passes and the class gets formed, looks like my chances get bleaker.

Late entrant to the discussion, but it seems like a good thing, for us still on the list, that there hasn't been a lot of movement. It's much better than the alternative of a bunch of folks being admitted off the list while we're still in purgatory. Feeling good about April...

Hello all, ironically as I received an admit from INSEAD and Ross, Kellogg took me off its waitlist and gave me admission. I'm almost certain I will go with INSEAD, and am not even waiting for LBS' final decision. Going to write to Kellogg tonight to withdraw my admit.

Take care all and I wish you the best of luck with this process that takes so much out of you.


Congrats Aximili! I'm assuming you heard of your acceptance at Kellogg on the 11th?

Hi Dakells, I'm travelling in the US currently so don't have access to office email (where Kellogg sent the update), I asked a colleague to check for any important work updates and they're like "oh btw you have an acceptance note from Kellogg". I'll send an email asking what the date was and let you know.

Hi all- round 2-er here who was added to the waitlist this morning. I'm sure there's a bunch of us who will be joining you on this thread over the course of today. Part of me is kind of bummed, but I know that this is better than a ding. Reading through your earlier posts has helped me prepare for what's to come.

Here's a question that totally falls into the "counting my chickens before they're hatched" bucket: anyone know when the remaining DAKs are? I feel like I haven't been able to spend as much "quality time" with Kellogg as I would have liked, and as I have with other schools, and I feel like Kellogg could very well be my first choice. It would be heartbreaking to miss the DAK experience, if I'm fortunate enough to get an eventual acceptance.

Hi MBAtLast! Welcome to the club! As far as I know, the only remaining DAK is April 19-20, so unfortunately I imagine you won't be hearing anything before then. Not sure if your communication dates are the same as ours, but our next date is April 16th, not a lot of time before the wknd, ha! Good luck, looks like you've got an awesome admit though in the event things don't work out at kellogg!

Thanks! Yeah, it's a quandry, but you're right: for now at least I'm going somewhere! We were also told that the next update date is April 16th. From reading through the posts, it sounds like maybe people did hear earlier than the status update dates for R1? Or did I read that incorrectly?
