seriously. do we need two rec letters - the site says at least one, but is it seen negatively if we don't have two??


I called the Kellogg Admissions Office and they informed me categorically that re-applicants should submit only one recommendation letter. Couple of reasons for this:

1) They re-use rec letters from your previous application
2) Because they re-use rec letters they don't want you to submit 2-3 more and end up overloading them with rec letters

Hope this helps :)

I'm assuming we're not allowed to contact them at all until the week of Jan 7th, although it's killing me having to wait that long.

I don't think we need to contact them to tell them we want to stay on the waitlist, only if you want to be taken off.

Hey Guys! Thanks for setting up this thread HookemHorns. I have been reading last year's thread to get an idea of what we are all in for. Doesn't look good, ha! Anyways, I'm going to wait until the 7th to contact. I think if you haven't taken yourself off the list they know you're still interested.

Why do you say it doesn't look good? I hear Kellogg's one of the best with its wait list movement?

Lets get in!

Thanks for setting up this thread! I'm waiting until 7 Jan before calling - I figured admissions people will be enjoying their holidays and we may not get hold of our WL manager anyway.

All the best to everyone in the WL! Let's wait it out together :D

Hi, this is my first post on this site. Does any one have any stats from last years on what %age of candidates from the wait list made it?

Thanks to hookemhorns612 for setting this up, and to everyone else for the input so far. I am waitlisted as well and will be waiting anxiously for any updates from the AdCom. Good luck to one and all!

WL for me as well. It is killing me to wait so long to contact the Kellogg office, but I suppose that they have families and whatnot.

Definitely agree that there is more movement on Kellogg's waitlist than some other schools, so in that sense we can be hopeful. Just seems like it could potentially be a LONG process for some. But a positive result in the end would certainly make it worth it!

Also WL for the 2Y program in R1. Luckily work has been plenty busy enough to keep my mind off of it until next week.

I got into Ross, and both schools were a tie for my top-choice, so I'm still extremely happy... but I think it would feel nice to have a choice.

Good luck everyone!

I'm contemplating holding out until tomorrow. I don't think it really matters, but I'm wondering if they'll be bombarded with calls today so might be able to get more attention tomorrow/would be nice to give them a break. That may all likely go out the window once I get bored at work later on though!

Dakells, I was thinking the same thing! But it's late where I am now so I probably won't be able to sleep until I make the call :?

Ha then I say go for it! I'm also torn because Duke is announcing decisions tomorrow so if I wait until tomorrow I'll either be really depressed calling Kellogg or in a great mood which could be a good thing. Whereas today I'll just be anxious!

If anyone calls today let us know what they say!
