Guys, I feel for you and know your pain from a 1-month long Kellogg torture I experienced, watching others get their admit calls and wondering when and if is going be my turn!

The only advice I have is stay positive and try to self-distract by occupying your day with stuff that would keep your mind from thinking about the phone call.

Ironically, I received my Kellogg admit call when I forgot about my cell phone, leaving it in the pocket of my jacket.

Good luck, all! There are 2 workdays left before Jan 15!

P.S. as I stated many times before, I prefer a one-day on-line notification method.

Does anyone think that there is a method to the madness? Do they call by geographic area, last name, application date, interview date? There seems to be a discussion about this on BW.

I am not sure. But in general, they will attempt to call you on your day phone. So, east coasters seem to be getting the early calls. I have NOT seen reports of an admit call from internationals or W coast folks.

Hey clobo- I think they do call my region. I know that there was one person on b-week from Atlanta, but by and large, they seem to be going by region. I even checked last years thread and someone did find out from the adcomm that it is indeed by region. Each adcomm is incharge of a calling up a certain region. Today seems to have been entirely the NY/north east region, so maybe tomorrow will be the midwest and west coast and internationals :)

My guess is that adcoms are assigned to geographical areas. I remember the adcom who called me today from my school visit, and I recall her stating that she was responsible for the east-coast applicants.

Who knows when adcoms assigned to other regions will start calling. It might be tomorrow or Monday.

Stay calm, guys!

I have a feeling we will get to know our status on 15th only. Lets see.

I think we will know tomorrow and possibly Monday if we are admitted. There is a small chance that some applicants could know on the 15th but by and large most should know by monday. but i hate the stretched out decision process- i prefer dukes process as well.

So, no call, no admittance? Do they not admit people merely by mail?

They do. But in most cases they call.

I have a theory- could be completely out there but I think the only calls that have been made so far for 1. admits with $'s (such as nervous) and 2. admits who applied through the consortium. This is based on what I have seen on b-week and here. Could be completely off...
