Just one final thought on this whole fiasco. I've worked in fundraising for a few years, and I can't count the number of times I've sent out letters with someone elses name on it.

The point is, every single time we do that, we get explicit approval from the person whose name is on the letter with regard to the content and the recipients of whatever we're sending. That way, any mistakes are on them. To allow your name to be put on something that you're not sure who its going to is irresponsible. Regardless of who sent the email, Beth's name is on it so she is responsible. Allowing some IT flunky (if we're assuming that's what happened) to send out important emails with your name on it, with no checks and balances is poor management.

But on the other hand, she seems to be handling it with all the class in the world. I think the fact that she is personally calling people to let them know is exactly what she should be doing. She screwed up, and she is taking responsibility for it. And I bet they're making sure this never happens again. We've all screwed up before, so try and have a little empathy.

That's just my two cents. I'd hate to be in the position of people who are involved in the mixup. I'm still waiting.

I agree... but I feel awful for those who were misled. Keep your hopes high for your other schools. It's unfortunate that this happened during such a high-stress time.

Ok guys, let us leave the issue here. let us accept that some thing terribly wrong happened with some of us. this was definitely not Beth's fault but she has shown good leadership example by owning up some one else's mistake and taking pains to talk to each one of the applicant.
I also empathize with the applicants with whom this happened. the agony to face, when you find your self on a high and then tell every one including family and friends and then to say sorry I got dinged is really painful. But B school application process itself is an exercise in it self and you learn to know yourself and so - are you getting carried away by it or have the ability to take failures in your strides? I know it is easier said then done, but its an occasion to show your character and temperament and who knows if you talk to Beth and tell her that the episode has been an embarrassment to you but you are still committed and quite passionate about Kellogg and if not this time, will work hard and will be there again next year, Probably you will be better off, just my cents.
peace . No joining the issue on this count! 8-)

A quick question: Is there a way to go back and change my answers to Part I of the application after submitting it already? I just noticed that I missed a checkbox, and also I want to tweak my stated long term goal.. Thanks!

That's what I figured... No big deal I hope. They'll know that I don't need to take the TOEFL and my stated long term goal is close to what I'm portraying in my essays. Thanks!

Has anyone (outside of those involved in the mix up) heard anything since Monday? It seems like they have temporarily shut down operations while they are dealing with the mess.

I know a few adcoms who are working part of next week...not sure if calls go out. If decisions come out next week, its safe to assume they will be all acceptances. I would expect a flood of decisions this week though. There were a ton on monday, you remember the ones where a lot got screwed up.
