Not sure whether or not to just abandon GMAT Club this week...could be a healthy move for me :-).

In my info session, they said they weren't sure if they were going to call the week of or just the day before/the deadline b/c they were aware of how much anxiety it caused candidates - they said they visited these forums and saw all the comments on people trying to figure out the method to the madness of how people were being informed (alphabetical, geographical, industry, age, hair color, blah blah)...

My guess is they'll make the calls this week - I don't think they call everybody before the drop dead date on the 17th or that it means your 100% WL or dinged, but I doubt chances are great at that point.


I heard the same thing about them re-evaluating when to call applicants. I'm sure the admissions office is plenty busy but it sure is tempting to call and ask. Goodluck everyone, hopefully we hear soon.

Wow. If an unknown 847 number called me and it wasn't Kellogg, I'd have a heart attack. I'd probably have a heart attack anyway.

Haha, I did this yesterday for a number from Washington state. I'd say we're all in bad shape ;)

If we're being realistic, there are but a handful of adcom members and a bunch of people that they will, in theory, have to call. Let's all just take a few deep breaths and try to resist the urge to jump off the ledge if it takes a few days to hear anything :)

Too soon to assume that they aren't calling today?

Who knows! I'd assume that until 5pm CT there's a chance they could start, but I'd agree it's unlikely.

My guess is no dice today as well. I'm sure they've got plenty on their plate, just have to be patient.

Anyone called the adcom/current students to see what we should expect. Looks like no calls today.

Seems you're right. I really don't know how I'm going to handle four more days of this.

The adcom committee must look at this forum and be amused.


If I were an adcom member, I'd have a fake account here just for some good laughs. I think the best part is that the discussions are nearly identical year to year!

Guys, I was waitlisted last year and chose to waive interview this year. As the decision day is approaching, I am really starting to fidget... Last year, adcom called some US applicants before the decision date and the international calls are evenly distributed amongst the week after the decision date. So I speculate the pattern will probably be the same this year.

I don't understand..... "The week after the decision date"???
so the international applicants found out they were accepted by mail? or only on the decision date itself online?

Some international applicants were notified by phone on the decision day, while some received status change but no phone calls on the first day...

So... you mean I can stare at the the phone/ at my inbox all week, read all the posts here about happy accepted applicants, be sure that I was dinged and then just hear from them next Monday? or even worse- read that I was accepted on Kellogg's website?
That's cruel.... :)

So I know calls haven't started yet, but once they do, does anyone know if they call each and every admitted student? I.e. is not getting a call a death blow?


An effort is made to call every admitted student. This is possible because current students make some calls as well. If time zone differences make it difficult to call then an email is sent out. The decision roll-out may change this year because we have a new admissions director. I hope it's earlier than later.
