Has anyone else on the waitlist been contacted by the Adcom for a discussion?
I have a discussion scheduled for next week, and have no idea what it would be about.

I have also been contacted on Friday to schedule a call and I am anxious to find out what it is. I doubt they will call to reject a candidate, so its either a call to discuss the process further or hopefully some good news.

Yeah, I too doubt that it would be something negative - they generally prefer to do that over email! :-D
In the webinar, they had mentioned that they would reach out to people if they need clarification, so I am guessing it is that, but like you, I too am anxious to know what it is and am hoping that I am articulate enough in the moment. :tongue_opt1

Anyone had a call with waitlist manager? What was the call about? Mine was a generic call about why MBA why Kellogg and nothing was divulged in the call. I thought this would be a good sign but turned out to be a fairly normal call of about 15 mins.

Yup, similar experience. Very general questions about other schools deposit deadlines, why kellogg, and any other updates in professional life.

Oh, I wasn't even asked about other school deposit deadlines but I was told that till round 2 decisions there might not be any movement.

Do you think it is a good sign that some people got a call? Or does everyone get a call?

I'd say if anything it is a good sign. I did not get a call, but I did share those updates: other deadlines, why Kellogg, etc. through a waitlist update - this might be their way of getting all our data points aligned to compare us to R2 candidates. Good Luck everyone!!

Had the same call this week. The one thing I learned is that while accepted people are considered for scholarship its very unlikely that a candidate from waitlist would get one.

Any news from any waitlisted applicants? Around this time last year they were already calling people to get off the waitlist.

I received the same waitlist call as above and I submitted an update through the portal. My waitlist admissions officer told me that it is unlikely there will be much movement until the decisions for round 2 are announced so hold tight!

I made sure to highlight that Kellogg is 100% my first choice and was asked why that would be. I highlighted the emphasis that Kellogg has on international experience as well as the culture that Kellogg has which I find to be scholarly but not formal- warm.

Good luck everyone!

Anyone receive an update since the calls? This time last year there were a couple of people who got off the waitlist.

No updates since the call. Getting a little antsy as we approach the round 2 deadline. Was hopeful with my update but now not feeling so confident.

FYI - I received a short follow-up call from my waitlist manager (after my initial call a few weeks ago) asking more about where Kellogg fits in my decision list and asking about where I put down deposit/scholarship info (if relevant)/considerations there. They highlighted that they're seeing some movement so I'd guess we hear some updates later this week/soon.

How recent was this? Was this a couple of weeks ago when the others received calls or just last week?
