Funnily, I know several people who were rejected by Kellogg and admitted to Stanford. I wouldn't let the Kellogg ding get you down. For one thing, every school is looking for different things. For another thing, my impression is that Kellogg is aggressive about yield management, and if you are clearly Harvard/Stanford material, they may reject or waitlist you to maintain their yield.


I'm going to cling to this hope! :) If not for Stanford, then at least that Kellogg could still be convinced to take me if nothing else pans out...

I interviewed and waiting for the decision.
Im not really confident. My interview went super well but still I have the impression that it is not the most important aspect of your application (More focus on essays and recommendation letters)...

I thought I wouldn't stress about it but damn this is hard!


Yeah my interview didn't feel like it went very well. She kept it to 45 mins on the dot and the email said to expect a 1 hr interview. She seemed mildly positive but I didn't feel like I put my best foot forward--it was less of a softball interview than I was expecting. So... hoping that it's not weighted too heavily here. It doesn't seem fair to weight one person's snap judgment about you heavily relative to the word of reputable people who have known you and worked with you through thick and thin for 4 years.

I'm surprised there isn't more activity on this board right now--where are all the other stress cases?


I interviewed, thought it went really well (1/2 hour interview, 1/2 hour lets have life discussions about women/leadership/business because my interviewer was such a Boss) but am so anxious for Tuesday... I imagine the lack of activity is because of many people not hearing about interviews(yet?) and those of use who have... what do we have to say right now? I imagine we'll be chatting up a storm on Tuesday! Best of luck to all

on another note, at the very end of the interview she told me she hosts a reception for admitted women so "can meet your classmates." it would be super messed up if she gave me a poor review and said that, right?!

Stress case here! My interview was fine but not outstanding...my interviewer was very nice and friendly so hard to tell if she liked me or was just being herself. So far, have been rejected from HBS and WLed at Kellogg, and feel like I have zero confidence about positive outcomes at GSB and Booth :( I thought Kellogg was in the bag, so getting WLed really shook me. The next week is going to be awful!


Aw man, remember how we talked about being in the exact same boat, schools-wise? Well, we're STILL in the exact same boat! I was also WLed at Kellogg, and am also now feeling a lot worse about Stanford and Booth as a result. Not that I ever felt really good about Stanford, but still--ugh!

I've just been trying not to think about Stanford, since it seems like such a long shot... My interview went reasonably well, but I feel like my essays weren't the best, and I just overall don't have a good feeling about my chances. So I'm stressed, but... not really expecting a positive outcome enough to be really stressed.


Cerasi, we really are two peas in a pod! I've had the worst last few days...between the WL news and some rough days at work, I have just felt nauseous the last few days and can't keep any food down :( Booth and Stanford have been my top 2 all along, so these next few days are especially brutal. If good news doesn't come from GSB on Tuesday, the next 24 hours will be the worst!

Ok I think this is a decent time to start voicing our panic here... anyone care to venture the schedule of calls by region?
I'll start by guessing that the average phone call takes 4 minutes and there are 180 calls for a round 12 hours. Add a 2 hour break throughout the day and you have a nice 14 hour stretch. Does this sound reasonable?

Sounds good to me. Do we know if the calls start on Tuesday or on Wednesday up to the 5pm decision deadline? Also, where are you located? I'm a West Coaster so will probably be hearing last (if I get a call at all)....yikes, that will be a very stressful 24 hours...

I read somewhere or heard that calls go out on the day before the change of status so all calls should be done by Tuesday evening. Can anyone contribute from previous experience or previous threads? I'm from the Middle east so any call would have to come between 8 AM and noon West coast time. I'm just not sure if it's on the 25th or the 26th

Based on previous years, the bulk of the calls will be made on the 26th pacific time. Derrick Bolton pulls an all-nighter and starts calling East Asia time zones in the wee hours of the 26th pacific time. These will continue and move west until about 8p pacific time. There's a chance that some East Asia applicants will hear in their morning of the 27th their time as he wraps around. He typically doesn't call after 8p in the local time zone. The notification email (or update in AY) will likely be sometime in the morning of the 27th pacific time. It is usually available well before the 5p pacific time listed.

All admits will receive a call (or voicemail) before the notification emails are sent.

ok, then based on the new info, here's what I'm expecting in terms of calls to the different regions: (all in Cali time)

3 or 4-7AM: calls to asian admits
7-10AM: europe, middle east, africa (includes a breakfast break)
10-11AM: latin america
11AM-7PM: US (includes a lunch break)
next day 1 hour for some candidates in asia

keep your phones on...

While some people have said that Stanford will continue to send invites for interviews till 27th it really seems unlikely to me. I am counting myself as dinged especially since I am an international applicant and I think that getting an alum to interview and send his feedback to the team in the next 2 days and then incorporating the score to my application, seems a little stretched to me. Let me wait for my other results :)

To all others in the group - Thanks a lot for sharing information. Best of luck to all for the results!

Yeah, my little flicker of hope is totally gone too. I did get an admit from Kellogg last week, but I really thought I was the best fit for Stanford and am so disappointed at not even being given an interview that I'm finding it hard to take comfort in that!

I was so excited that when he was telling me all the important dates to remember I just completely spaced. Did either of you catch when admit weekend is?

Yeah, he said that it was on the 28th/29th of April, I completely spaced out as well. I hope that I didn't sound too much like an idiot ...

Hi Caesar, my status still says that "Your application is currently under review", I guess that it will only change on the 27th. Good luck to you!
