My online status just changed (at right around midnight EST).

Maybe a R1 applicant (or current student) can answer this: The only thing I really see that I can do here is accept or decline the offer. Is that what you had? Is it not possible to see the admitted students site until accepting? Does accepting the offer obligate the deposit?



Maybe I'm blind, but where do I click to see the updated status? I clicked on 'McCombs Status Check' and logged in, and I was brought to the 'My Profile: Home' page. But it just says that my application has been submitted.

Obviously I got the call that I'm in, so I'm not too worried about it, just wondering why I can't find the decision online. Thanks.


You're looking in the right place. They just haven't updated your profile yet.

Thanks for the info. I was assuming they would all be updated at the same time.

I got the email today and a call a couple days ago. I was hoping for a scholarship since I have also been admitted to Duke. Any info on when scholarships will be awarded?

I guess I'm reassuring myself and hoping to get some validation from all Round 1 admitted students -

All those who are admitted receive an email that the decision has been posted online. After logging into the application website you see a congratulatory message and a note that says an official letter will be sent in mail to the current address on record

Do we also get an official "email" with the offer letter and links to admitted students website/facebook? If yes when can we expect that to come through?

any assistance is much appreciated

Most of the new info comes in the official email. That includes links to the Facebook group and admitted student site. I'll send you the link in a PM if you want to give it a try. Accepting the offer can't obligate you to the deposit. However, your spot won't be reserved until the payment is made. Also, if you're pretty sure on your McCombs decision, don't forget to join the admitted LinkedIn group:

I should have preluded that by saying I don't recommend accepting the offer until you are 100%. There's no added value in rushing it this round because you'll still get access to the sites. However, accepting the offer might distort the AdCom's ability to evaluate R3/waitlisted candidates. I'm not sure if they wait to evaluate their quotas until after an applicant pays his/her deposit.
Side question for rrossjd: It says you applied in R1. Your application status is still "incomplete"?


Applied via the Consortium in that Round 1 application pool...

I applied via the Consortium also (R2 on 1/5) and my status changed yesterday from "You have not started an application" to "Submitted," but a lot of my info wasn't present or was incorrect. I just think the mapping isn't perfect between the batched applications from CGSM and the McCombs status page.

Got the decision notification email 2 minutes before midnight CST -- waitlisted :(. I guess it's better than a straight decline, but I'm wondering what their conversion rate is on waitlisting to acceptance

Also waitlisted. Maybe people don't feel the need to get on a forum and tell everyone they were denied, but sure seems like the schools I applied to waitlisted a lot more people than they denied

Lucky! Congrats on your status change! Still got my fingers crossed for an 'incomplete' to 'submitted' outcome in my near future!

How would any R2 not have heard yet? The decisions all went online at midnight, right?

As a R2 Consortium applicant, I just got a notification that my application is being imported into the system. Not exactly the "next steps" update that I was expecting, but at least it's progress...?
