Admitted to MMM!!! Was giving up hope because it was past 1 PM on the East Coast then remembered that I'm in their records as living in the West Coast.

For what it's worth, I heard back at 10:04 AM PST

WL - update via email. Will accept offer at LBS. Good luck to those on WL. I would hate to have to wait around.

So if there was no mention of a scholarship on the call, that means we didn't get one, right?

^Seconding above question. Didn't see or hear any mention of scholarship offer.

How do adcoms decide who gets scholarship and how much is offered?

That's likely, but I would contact the admissions office to make sure. You never know unless you ask!

I see people with means using consultants for every step in their applications from writing essays to preparing what to say in the interviews getting through. Does this mean there is no hope for independent applicants like me? :(

I got in and did the whole thing without consultants. I borrowed test books and used friends and family to help review and refine my essays and resume. It definitely can be done

Agreed! ^ I used a consultant for my Kellogg application and was denied. So please know that nothing is guaranteed.

Absolutely thrilled to be accepted today!

I was a re-applicant so for those of you who decide to try again next year, there definitely is hope.

Hope to see some of you in Evanston!

Got Kellogg. London based. Relieved. Humbled. Excited.


Congrats fellow Kellogg admit/Booth WL!


Hah. Didn't realise there were more of me. What are you going to do? :D


Leaning towards Kellogg, I got an admit to UCLA with some money so I'll ask Kellogg if they can provide anything. If they equalize, or close the gap, I'll take Kellogg. With no money, it's a harder decision but still leaning Kellogg, not really thinking about the Booth WL

Hey, I went through the entire process by myself, and I can assure you this isn't the case. As long as you're honest with yourself, can put down your thoughts and relay your interest for the school with conviction, I don't think there's anyone who can stop you.

All the best!

How are you planning on approaching this? Was hoping to get money from another school to do the same with Kellogg

Admitted with $$$!! Got the call around 1 PM CST yesterday. Was getting discouraged as the day went on, then suddenly my phone started ringing and as soon as I noticed it was an 847 number I bolted out of my meeting to answer it.

Glad this is all over with; hope to meet some of you at DAK in February!

Is this an option? Can you go to Kellogg with other scholarship offers with a reasonable expectation that they might increase their offer?
