I checked on Beatthegmat forum, someone had called up admissions, and they confirmed that the results would be released on 17th Dec ONLY. :)
thats great as I would not have to keep checking the forum....


... 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!



str1der- when are you going to write another blog entry? i have been waiting for long time! :)


Just did bro - thanks for following it :) (and I'm assuming your 'wait' is not a sarcastic one :) haha )

Btw, all the best at Kellogg. I read you had a telephonic interview

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've been checking my Gmail account every 15 minutes on my phone and on my work laptop. i log into my Kellogg application every 2 hours and it feels worse as it gets closer to the 17th... :cry:


You don't have to check your email or the online application. They definitely call you first.

What about international applicants? Theres a 13 hour time difference. I dont suppose they'd call me at 3AM in the morning their time or mine? I suppose they'd send a congratulatory email instead?

Would you really be that upset if they called you at 3am to congratulate you?

Oh I most certainly wouldnt. But they are businessmen first. If I were in the AdCom, I would have rules about calling people at the right time. So its not I that is against 3AM calls, its probably them. I wonder...

But even if they aren't officially releasing anything on the website until Monday, does that mean they won't be making calls this week?

Rather, even if they aren't officially releasing anything on the website until Monday, is it going to stop us from obsessively checking our phones and email ?

I guess we'll find out! At the very least I'll be checking back here a lot to see if anyone's heard anything else.

Last year only US candidates received a call ... international candidates received admit emails in batches ... so prepare for frayed nerves if your name is in the last batch that goes out!

Another question; if we don't get a call by Friday does that mean we got waitlisted or dinged?

As of now, it doesn't appear anyone has gotten any calls at all. If that remains by Friday, then no, that's not what it means, unless the applicant pool was extraordinarily weak :)

Whatever the decision you will be updated as such ... waitlisted and dinged candidates also receive emails from the adcom, though a little later at times ... so dont worry you wont be left hanging

I like how for the past several days, it has consistently gotten ghostly quiet at around 12:30PST/3:30EST. As if the whole thread is holding its breath. Good luck all, what happens happens...we'll be okay.

I think it depended on the international candidate's time zone. There were some who did get calls and others who got the congratulatory email. However, that was last year and it's pretty obvious at this point that decisions are being released much differently this year. Remember how all of us last fall were trying to figure out when notifications would start based on the Fall 2010 thread. Hahaha. That year decisions started going out 2 weeks before the decision day. Last year that pushed back to 1 week before the decision day. This year it looks like the decision day is the day. So much for the predictive powers of the prior year threads.

How's the deferred year going?
