I know round 2-ers are on pins and needles right now waiting for decisions to come out. I'll just tell you about my experience with decision release day and what I heard from the admissions fellows afterward.

On the day the decisions are released, admitted students will start getting calls in the morning (eastern time). There seems to be little correlation with calls, except that I believe international applicants often get calls earlier than domestic ones (that's an observation, not necessarily a fact). Domestic applicants started getting calls around 8-8:30 a.m. eastern time (again, an observation, not necessarily a fact). I am on the east coast and I got a call just past 11 a.m. - so don't read too much into timing, especially if you're in the States.

The calls came from admissions officers as well as the second-year admissions fellows. At least as far as the fellows are concerned, they don't get a list of whom to call until the day of, and they get it at different times, depending on their availability. The status changed around noon (I got an email at 12:11 p.m.) the day of, and I believe some people who got in had not gotten the call before that happened.

Good luck, everyone!

Thanks for the input. Really helpful especially for us from far east.
At least I don't have to stay up all night and check my mail/phone every 5 minutes this Monday. :-D

Good luck to all applicants!

There is no clarity on whether to expect the decisions on Monday 25th or Tuesday 26th ?

Good luck everyone. I don't know where anyone got the impression that decision would be out on the 25th, but I'm definitely not expecting to hear anything until tuesday morning at the earliest. Let's wait another 24 hours before we start panicking...

Totally agree with bipolarbear.
i was clearly told to expect the result on March 26 during my one-on-one.
So better we wait patiently.
It's a hell of a wait though :(

Getting pretty pumped for this decision. Regardless of outcome, my MBA application journey will finally come to an end. It was a challening but fun ride! Good luck everyone.

Oh, and I just noticed its past midnight here on the east coast, so technically only a day away!!

Likewise.

I don't know if you guys have seen this show called 24. I can almost imagine that 24 hour clock ticking and the music playing in my head.

Good morning from Tokyo!
So, who's going to give us the first good news?

I really think I'm privileged to meet so many talented people and go through this process.
