I am hearing different ways the Admissions will notify candidates of acceptance. Does anyone know if acceptances are all offered via phone or will we receive an e-mail with our decision? Also, what is the time line for Round 2 decisions. I believe we will be notified anytime from now until March 21st. Any idea if this week we should start hearing?


Going by Round 1 I'd say you won't hear anything till March 21. They do try to call everyone but I think Internattionals might get e-mails depending on Time zones.


Candidates who are waitlisted or dinged will be notified by email early morning on the decision date. If you wake up in the morning and see no update from Kellogg, then you're In! You will get a congratulatory call later in the day and an official email by end of the day.


True that this is what happened in Rnd 1, I would just caution that it could potentially change. Just don't want anyone freaking out (for good or bad) should they change up the process this round.

This merely shifts the anxiety from the day of to the night before, lol
It sure feels like it's been a looong time since I submitted my Kellogg application. (Probably b/c I switched from R1 to R2).

I remember the motto we created for R1 was "No news is good news!". I didn't get an email and then got the call the next day.

But I honestly think that was a system error of some sort that won't be repeated in R2. It doesn't really make sense to send the email and then call admitted students later.

Congratulations to everyone who matriculated already (or will before tomorrow's deadline). I'm sad to not be joining you, but you're going to have a blast (especially with those rockin' KWEST trips)--best of luck at the big K!

They will only be out on the 21st, no way anyone got it already.

Just going back to that day on the message board it doesn't look like anything came out early. Although it looks like the ding email went out early - perhaps 1am instead of 1pm. Just have to wait it out I guess. All my other dings will be meaningless if this pans out haha.

Although I just checked my status for the hell of it and the status check page does say:

"When a decision has been determined, the Office of Admissions will send you an email notifying you to check your status for your decision. Application decisions may be released on or before the decision deadline, but the majority of decisions will be released during the last few weeks of the round."

What happened was this (kind of):

1. Email goes out saying "Check your status online" the night before, but only some applicants received this email.
2. Applicants check online status, nothing is there.
3. Eventually, applicants start getting admitted calls the next day, but no one who got the email got the call.
4. The group who gets the email finally notices that their status is up and is either a Ding or a Waitlist.

Interesting, sounds like someone might have forgot to indicate am/pm when scheduling the ding email. Either way though, I'm not expecting word until the 21st. And once we've all waited this long throughout this process, what's another 2 weeks right? My blood pressure is already permanently raised, I'm sure.

Upsetting that the next DAK falls on the same weekend as Blue Devil Weekend. I would have liked to experience both (provided the opportunity), since I loved Duke when I visited for Women's Weekend but feel that I could have been equally as smitten by Kellogg if I had a similar visit.

I'd say till the date isn't here (Mar 21st), keep your fingers crossed. I know of many people last year who got interviews during the last 4-5 days before the results day. However, as the date draws near, keep striking off 3% of a shot per day. 2/3rds I'd say its a no-go, as of now.

That must be for Round 2 or later. I was waitlisted in Round 1 and I got the notification email at about 6pm EST.

Last year it seems they started calling folks a week early. This year it seems they will release decisions all on one day. (based off what happened R1.)

I guess this new approach is better. A week of waiting for a phone call (or not) sounds miserable. But I am so ready to be done with this. I am definitely procrastinating by reading this forum wayyyyy too much. Ward2012, I have read your post 100 times now.

Hi:

Can international students comment on the ease of getting loans without a co-singer via Northwestern?

Has anyone from the 1st round done this?

Thanks,
