Anyone else anxiously waiting for an "Unknown Number" call?

I'll be staring at my phone tomorrow :-o


What times are calls supposed to be out tomorrow? Noon? 5 pm EST?

Should all admits expect calls or only the ones that are reasonably close to the Eastern Time Zone?

From last years topic, I found the following which I have found to be accurate

Quote:
Accepted students will likely be called on December 5th as tradition goes. People waitlisted and dinged will just get a status change and receive their news on December 6th.


Quote:
For class of 2017, first call was reported on forum at 6:08 AM Pacific Time from New York, followed by Philippines, Nigeria, Panama, NYC, LA, St. Louis, Germany, Texas, Chicago, and Chile.


So I guess they will call every admit.

I applied to Booth last year R1, was waitlisted after interview, and was rejected with the R2 pool. I reapplied this year R1, interviewed, and was again waitlisted.

I can't help but think the only thing left to do is retake my GMAT. Currently, my score is a 700. Any thoughts or similar experiences from the group?

As someone who has gone through 9 rejections and one school telling me I need to increase my 710 GMAT. I say yes if you think you can do it. Sorry to be blunt.

Sorry to hear. Has anything else substantially changed (i.e., new job, new promotion, new activities, new rec letters?)

ak99, appreciate the bluntness! I figured as much :-/

antetokoumpo, I did my best to show as much change this time around. I submitted 2 brand new rec letters and talked about new responsibilities at work (same job), new community board positions, and quantitative coursework I did on the side.
