BOOKMARKED
If you're like me, you didn't get a call but received an email saying the status changed on your application and to accept/reject your place on the waitlist. It SEEMS there are some changes in the WL game than years past: in the letter it didn't tell us not to contact them. Rather, it told us to wait until mid-Jan for our WL Manager (now abbrev WM) contact info to be released. I assume we won't need to do anything until then.

"When will I receive an update regarding my application status?
The Admissions Committee will be rendering admit and deny decisions on a rolling basis between January and August. In addition, all applicants will receive an application status update on the following dates via an update link on the applicant status page:

February 26, 2014
April 23, 2014
June 24, 2014"

I got the impression that they are going to stall as long as they can (to be able to review more applicants in the meantime, I assume) and then make a quick decision about my candidacy when they have to. He did not say this out loud, of course--I'm reading between the lines here...........Read the complete post here.

Thanks for the thread, ricecake. The first update for us is on Feb 26, almost a month before R2 decisions (Mar 25). Maybe they want to take a look at the R2 applicant pool and admit some of us in on 26th..

Lets have a rollcall added to the first post as well.

Waitlist here as well. I never got an email about my status. I was checking the application page regularly and eventually a link popped up.

It does sound different from last year, but probably a good thing given how many issues there were getting ahold of WLMs.

Also on the waitlist. I'm a MMM applicant so I don't know how that differs from a regular MBA applicant.

pencil me in guys.

Also, has anyone been WL by Kellogg before? If so, can you share your experience? Do you just sit and wait for your name to be called? Of course I assume you could be proactive and try to talk to adcom or improve your app .. but for the looks of it they just want you to wait. Any info would come in handy. Thx

Also on waitlist.

Now what exactly is a waitlist manager? Is that a fancy term for an existing AdCom person who takes on the additional responsibility?

Add me to the list. Just waiting for mid-Jan to connect with the WL manager. I'm also getting a hold of as many Kellogg connections as I can through my network.

Nice! What exactly are you going to do with those connections though?

To be honest, I only spoke with one student before my interview... I'm going to speak with additional students to gain a better perspective about the program and see if they can reach out to anyone who was waitlisted previously to discuss their actions.

I'm also taking actions to strengthen my known weaknesses in my application. I'm hoping I will be able to work with my WL manager and possibly connect with admissions to move my candidacy forward! I figure showing your interest one way or another can't be too harmful; you just have to find a balance between showing interest and pestering.

Does anyone know when we can expect to be contacted or appointed our WaitList Manager? Also do you know if it's looked at favorably if we call Admissions during this waiting period, or if it will seem inpatient?
