Anybody know of other sites that we could look at? I don't see anything on Beat the GMAT, but they're not as organized either.

Wow, I'm an idiot. I'm a re-applicant from 2 years ago and missed the 12/3 part I deadline for interviews. So either I apply and stick with my interview from 2 years ago or not apply at all. My guess is my chances of getting in will be slim if i don't have a new interview. Ugh.

The other option is to do the interview on campus. I don't think that requires the same deadline.

I'm a Chicago area applicant, so that option is not available. I had totally forgotten about that. And since my last interview was more than 18 months ago, I can't use that interview either. So I guess Kellogg is out. Lol.

Thank goodness for the internet. This whole process would be even worse if I didn't know that no one else had heard either. Misery really does love company. I've already applied Haas second round, but Kellogg is my first choice, and I would really love to not have to do any more second round apps.

I read somewhere that Kellogg has shrunk its 2Y MBA class size, so maybe that explains the silence! Or maybe I'm just overthinking this!!

You are right. The article is here: http://www.economist.com/whichmba/kello ... ury-knocks

As per this, Kellogg is reducing the size of its two year MBA program from 650 to 530 or roughly by 20% Now, assuming that the number of applications at Kellogg will more or less be flat (actually, R1 volume is up as per other forums). As Kellogg's yield is close to 60% (actually is 58% or so), it means that Kellogg will extend roughly 900 offers this year as opposed to 1,100 last year. Hence, the competition to get in this year is higher plus with a new admissions director, they are probably trying to streamline the process from before. Yet, I don't think calls will not come before the decision date. Have a feeling that they will call people starting tomorrow (Thursday) through Monday.

All the best to everyone!

Caveat: Nowhere in the article does it mention that the entire reduction in the class size will happen in one year. It will probably be in phases over 2-3 years, but the above is the worst case scenario analysis.

... and hence we assume that the Kellogg Admissions office is/officers are the epitome of full disclosure and honesty :) They say a lot of things and do many things differently. Speculation won't help in any way - just sit tight and hopefully a +1 (if you're an international applicant) will flash on your mobile phone one of these days. Cheers!
