Guys,

About an hour ago I got the status unknown update of death...

Now to my complete shock I just received an email from admissions about a status update stating "Congratulations! I am pleased to inform you that you have been admitted to Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management MBA Two-Year Class of 2011."

I am in disbelief. Has anyone been notified by email and not gotten a call. I live in Houston. Why would they not call. If this is a prank, someone is very, very, very mean!


Check the online status - but no reason to think its a prank!

Congrats! Hope to see you at DAK!

This could be the ultimate stomach punch of my entire life.

Tried to call but office closed at 5pm central. Here are the facts:

1. Status went unknown

2. Received an email, with my full name spelled out, from the email address mbaadmissions@kellogg.northwestern.edu congratulating me on my acceptance.

3. Moments of excitement, shock, curiosity as to why I got no call.

4. Check online status to find that "Despite your many merits as a candidate, I regret to inform you that we are not able to offer you a place in the entering class."

Now I wait in limbo until at least tomorrow morning. Wondering if I should just send my deposit along with a printed copy of my acceptance email! lol

Can anyone help me or make me feel less anxious/miserable right now?

One of the worst situations to be in. I am sorry!
If it was a prank, its very mean spirited and if its a mistake, I am appalled at Kellog's professionalism and seriousness. :x

Same goes to you suntaurian.

Clearly that is a mistake, one way or another... If you don't get in, I would at least expect a refund of your application fee.

I feel like this is a worst nightmare scenario. Getting rejected outright would be much easier to stomach than receiving an admit email only later to find out it was a mistake and in fact a rejection. Wow. I am really in shock right now and don't know what to think. I really hope I am in fact in at Kellogg.

Well definitely an error on one side or the other. Since Beth sends the emails and an IT dork updates the online status, I would hope that Beth gets it right. I think the odds are much greater that the email is right since its unlikely that would go wrong, I mean they need to pull up your email, type it in and all that. Plus thats a much bigger mistake in my opinion than having someone click the wrong check box on an online status. Honestly, I dont know what it means but...

Since they are most likely out of the office, I bet you are in and you should think that so you can at least get some sleep tonight.

All I know is - someone at Kellogg admissions is gonna get fired for this screwup (if it is indeed a screw-up)...until you guys can call them tomorrow morning, let's just hope for the best.
