O yeah, wasn't questioning your statistics at all, but the website compared t US news, someone gotta be lying about this hahaha (2 years MBA is what the US news refers to )

Northwestern University (Kellogg) Evanston, IL
$56,550 per year (full-time) 1,161 708 3.69 22.9% $134,001 76.9%

Maybe thats after taking into account their yield rates etc, which I believe is around 70% or so?

Keep in mind enrolled numbers and accepted numbers are going to be different. No Doubt Kellogg accepted more than 477 students for their 2Y MBA program.

Yikes. Took a stroll through last year's WL thread (good info in there that I would recommend everyone check out) and I noticed that some of the R1 waitlisters were checking their application status right around the R2 notification and it went from ding, back to WL, and then finally back to ding a little while later. So for a period of time they thought that they were back on the wait list and that the ding was a glitch when, in fact, it was not.

Given all the hijinks with notification for us in R2 (vague status change), I'm just going to avoid checking that site at all until I hear from Kellogg directly (either by email or hopefully by phone). Frankly, I may just avoid the message boards all together and just let it ride out that week.

I called , they gave the email of my waitlist manager, I contacted him and he said that there is nothing in particular that they want from me , if I had any updates they welcome it but that is about it

I am an international student from a school that they probably never had applicants from, so I am pretty sure its my GMAT score

I had exactly the same experience, strange as it seems in R1 that people were put through to their waitlist managers and had some detailed conversations

I'm R1 waitlister and I got similar answer that my application did not need clarification or anything. It took me months to get in touch with my waitlist manager but it's worth it. He was super nice and told me to send him any updates on my career. I sent him an email after phone conversation that Kellogg was my top choice and I delayed my decision to attend other schools (with merit scholarships) to wait for Kellogg. I also sent him an update on my recent career advancement. I got admitted a few weeks later.

Good luck everyone. I know the waitlist process is long and tiring but it's worthwhile if Kellogg is your top choice.

Vu.


Congratulations buddy!!

I only got an email id from admissions office. I wrote to my waitlist manager but did not hear from him yet. Any suggestions?
I am not sure how I can talk to him though since I did not get a telephone number.

I would call admission office and ask for his/her direct phone number. Then its a matter of trying to reach him/her by phone and wait. Good luck.

Congrats, Vu! So there's hope for us with "nothing to clarify"!

I'm beginning to run out of ideas on what updates I could send next. Wish they would say exactly what they need from me.

Agree - but to set expectations, my waitlist manager did mention that there was unlikely to be much movement during this notification. Sigh.
