Call came in just a few min ago (12:15PM PDT)!!!! Can't wait to meet all fellow admits in a few weeks and few more months! Keep the faith, everyone else. It's not done until the decisions are online tomorrow around noon EDT. He's called people up to that time before. Best of luck!

I am in Texas (Central time zone USA)

Just Got The Call!!!!! In NY!! AHHH!!!


Looks like you have a fantastic application record! Mind sharing your story?


Thanks, sure... NY cauc female, took the GRE (It Can Be Done!) but my GMAT equivalent was 730, 3.66 GPA (with a strong upward trend) from a non-Ivy... 2 years i banking, 1 year working for a senior guy in the firm... really strong leadership (pretty much ran every org I was a part of from college onwards, including at my bank).

I imagine my recs were extremely strong (very close professional relationships with 3 sr people at the firm who are grads of HBS, Stanford GSB, and Stern, in various combinations) Interviews all went really well. I am really in shock with outcome thus far as well, looking forward to HBS tomorrow at noon so can start the tough decisions!

Congrats to everyone hearing and there's time left for those who haven't heard yet! I was lucky and got my GSB and Wharton calls within 30 mins of each other this morning.

For the sake of sharing back with the community, I got the call exactly 12 hours ago, (Middle East applicant). Sorry for not sharing earlier but I had an annoying day at work and it is still going on actually...
To be specific, I got 2 calls from DB: one from the standard +1-650 and the other one from some weird number +343 (the connection was bad on the first call)
There are a couple of events coming up: one in Istanbul, one in Saudi Arabia, one in London (april 7th) and the admit weekend (28-29th)
For all those who got in, I cannot wait to spend the upcoming 2 years with you!
For those who are still waiting, hang in there, it ain't over till it says so black on white
And for those who did not make it, I do hope you will find another great program.

Take care everyone!
PS: anyone who is interested in chatting/sharing stories in anticipation, please do pm me.

I'm a round 1 wait listed applicant and my online status currently says "submitted". Should I take this as a good sign or do all waitlisters have similar statuses? Thanks!

shamba, michanchou, and sanderc7 - when you log into your account right now, are the list of recommenders missing and the status says submitted? just trying to get a sense for if this should have changed for everyone who is going to get in, or they change it progressively throughout the day. basically, do folks who statuses have not changed still have a chance of getting a call...? thank you.

Yes, my status says "submitted," and the recommender names are gone. I don't know when it changed, but it was definitely before I received the call.

Agree with sanderc7, though I don't know whether it was changed before I got the call. I'd say if they're gone, you're in. If they're not, then maybe - it's clear they don't remove all admits recommenders at the same time... Not sure you can read much into the recs still being there...

sanderc7, sounds like Derrick called you right after me! Congrats!

Pretty quiet on here. Any calls (or account status changes) west of Texas/Mexico at this point?

Pretty sure the account change means you got in and lack of change means no, just like round 1

Seems as though they havent done the account changes all at once though (?). My theory was that they updated accounts by time zone or something once they got to it for the calls. Maybe i'm just holding on to any last hopes here? Is there anyone on the west coast that has an account change? thanks

I may have the totally wrong expectation - after interview the admission asked me for an additional reference letter. I assumed that they are interested. No call today, so disappointing...
