IN! Just got the call, they even knew some info about me, told me they would be sending a package via physical mail (why? everybody is getting this?) and not to worry about a potential lag in updating the website with my acceptance.

I did tell him that the call was being recorded for security purposes... hehehe

No email beforehand... if you get an email I think it is bad news that they want to convey.

Hang in there, NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS.

Cheers.

My caller said that the status will be updated by EOD. Plus, I have not received any e-mail as yet.

Just curious.. did anyone who got an interview waiver and was NOT called for an interview after that, get an admit?

My second year gift,
Just got their call, can't be happier, male from Central Africa, I missed their call and called back, a call I've waited for since being waitlisted last year, and even concerned that this year they waived my interview though I asked for a new one, finally I am in, congrats to all admits, definitely my first choice, and to those that didn't, guys build up your cases, a Ding/WL shouldn't be a showstopper, if you want to be in, you will, just believe in you and do what it takes to get there.

Congrats! When you were waitlisted last year, did you voluntarily pull out or they eventually dinged you? Did you get feedback on the weak areas of your application last year? If not, would be great if you could share your experience in figuring out where you fell short. I'm scratching my head now, not knowing which area(s) of my application could've been better.

True story - I was getting nervous because I didn't have any email from them, so I logged into this room. The Kellogg page opened and at the exact second, an Evanston number popped up on my phone!

She mentioned some specific elements of my application package (bonus points to Kellogg!) and I basically bumbled like an idiot without a lot to say.

Key take-aways:
- email later today to make it official.
- they are behind on updating the status on-line. She said it may take 24-48 hours.
- package coming in the mail that will have specific information on housing, website access, etc

I'm very excited, but to those of you on the waitlist - you have hope! I'm heading to HBS in the fall, so there's at least one spot opening for you.

Congrats to those who got in!!
I'm sorry to those you did not - I hope you hear better news from other schools or that you have moved forward on R2 apps!
Waitlist kids - STAY STRONG!


Congratulations on your admits!!!

What time did you get the call ?

Yeah, after identifying himself he also asked:

- How is your day going?
- It depends... what is the reason behind your call? hehehe

Poor guy, he must hear dumb jokes like mine all day long. :lol:

A question to anybody who has gotten the call so far....

Did you get any sort of email before hand?

Mine was from an adcom, he promised a mail for later today and said I shouldn't worry about scams and others, to convince me he talked about key details that they liked in my application, couldn't expect more, so emails/mails will follow

To all those who received the call, will we receive the package in mail or by e-mail after one week? I remember her saying by e-mail. However, everyone else is saying mail.

We'll get a package in the mail which will have our admitted students portal login.

Nothing is certain in this life, but that has been the trend evidenced by this forum. No one had received an email before getting the call today - that I know of.

And those who were accepted, like myself, were told on the phone that an updated page would take 24-48 hours.

So... that is my conclusion

Cheers!
