As Kellogg is the first school I will be hearing from, I'm really anxious to know how the day will unfold. I've tried reading the previous posts on Round 1 decision day but I believe it was quite confusing given the "glitch(?)" email.

Is it reasonable to expect the ff:
1) Acceptance calls to happen from around Mar-21-2013, 8:00am CST up to 5:00pm CST
2) Formal emails on status update (Acceptance / WL / Ding) to happen sometime between Mar-21-2013, 5:00pm CST to 11:59pm CST

I'm quite anxious because I live in Asia (HK/Singapore time) and 8:00am-5:00pm CST is basically 9:00pm-6:00am. I anticipate I may not sleep the whole night!! >_<

Hope to hear your thoughts!

Cheers

Not going to lie, the wait is terrible. But it made getting the call that much sweeter.

Does anyone know if Kellogg has started to call R2 applicants who've been admitted?

And what do you do when you're slotted for Sloan interview on the day ahead, the 22nd ? FML :evil:

Ah, you decided on Booth. Congrats on your decision! Although, of course I'm bummed you won't be heading out to Sloan!

This question was asked many times before and, I guess, the current consolidated opinion is "higher than average, but nobody knows exactly, as statistics are way too distorted due to interview-all policy".

The next status check update will be the admission decision (Admit, Waitlist or Deny). When a decision has been determined, the Office of Admissions will send you an email notifying you to check your status for your decision. Application decisions may be released on or before the decision deadline, but the majority of decisions will be released during the last few weeks of the round.

What am I supposed to understand as regarding my application on Round 2?

There was a time last year when a blogger on this forum "Cheetarah" I think, had to start lecturing others on taking a second to read the tread at least 5 pages behind. To make it short, it's been said time and again, admitted students will receive a call, and if for some reasons you are not reachable, you will receive a congratulatoy mail later into the eve or so, along with all other admits. Dings and WL will find it online, usually there will be a mail asking you to check your application status. Adcom seems to have undeerstood the stress and anxiety that results from people hearing results over a week so they have opted for one day results. Will they post dings first as in R1, that is no question.

Cheetarah is still around ... And still blogging about her time at Booth :)

We started this list on another thread, but it was fun, so I thought I would re-post. The playlist, to be listened to on loop, for D-Day:

Call Me by Blondie

Never There by Cake.

Why Didn't You Call Me by Macy Grey.

No Reply by the Beatles.

Love It When You Call by The Feeling

Call Me Maybe

Call on me by Eric Prydz

U don't have to call by Usher

I love it when you call me [big papa]" by BIG

The Telephone Call by Kraftwerk

Why Don't You Call Me by James Blake

Any other additions?

Anyone know for sure that they would be matriculating if admitted? I'm about 90% sure I would, great vibe at Kellogg, though I'm not overly optimistic at the moment.

Hope I'm right there with you on Thursday. I crushed my interview and think I am a great fit personality-wise there, so I'm just praying they like my application enough to get that far. We shall see!
