Does Kellogg email candidates after calling (if you are fortunate enough to be admitted)? I heard that they begin calls usually a week before the notification date. I am going to be traveling abroad for two weeks for work and my cell phone will not be working, hence hoping that if I am admitted, I will get a nice email :).

Otherwise, I guess I will wait until Monday the 17th online notification.

You will get an email if they are unable to reach you. Good luck.

Has it been confirmed anywhere that calls will start going out tomorrow?

3:30pm what day. A week before published decision date? Or the day itself.

I got an interview waiver and was never contacted for follow-up. Does that mean I'm either WL'ed or dinged or can I still get in?

I'm in the same boat as you. I've heard in the past that they would typically follow-up with a phone interview, although according to the wording in the interview waiver e-mail, it doesn't seem like an absolute requirement:

Please be assured that this waiver will in no way negatively impact your candidacy. The Admissions Committee understands and expects these conditions and will certainly take them into consideration when reviewing your application. The interview is a single factor in your evaluation and is by no means the most important criterion for admission. The committee will contact you personally if they feel they need further clarification on any aspect of your file.

The part that gives me a bit of hope is the last sentence, if they feel they need further clarification on any aspect of your file. To me, this seems to leave open the possibility of admission without an interview (if you received the waiver), however small that possibility might be. Perhaps the essays and the rest of the application gave them enough they needed.

Am I reaching on this one, or does anyone else think this is a possibility?

Based on last year's posts, they will update the online application status only after making the call. So we can stare just at the phone for today :)

I think I've checked this page 50 times this morning. Last year round 1 they started calling at 3:30 eastern 1 week before, round 2 was around 10:30am eastern 1 week before. This is rough.
