Does anyone receive a mail from Kellogg Net Impact? I was surprised that in the fill form said, "Congratulations and welcome to Kellogg," but I do not know if they sent it to Admitted and WL candidates?

I'm on the waitlist and I have not received this. It might be a positive sign for you!

I got this also. Did you specify your interest in social impact during application?

ILMENF

No. They are re-evaluating denied/waitlisted applicants from previous rounds. There is a difference.

I feel they should just admit the WL candidates.

Applicants on the waitlist are often over represented in terms of their profile. So for example a lot of Indians are wait listed in early rounds because they are going to wait and see who else might come along. This happens especially for those with lower test scores. So if they were to just admit everybody off the waitlist it would be A lot of those over-represented candidates, what they need to do is kind of go back to the beginning and reconstruct the class. basically what I'm telling you is that if they were to do as you mentioned it would harm the diversity of the class which is one of the main value propositions of going to Business School.

I feel they should just admit the WL candidates. No need to re evaluate students you've rejected. Just pull off the WL candidates you've show interest in.[/quote]

I'm pretty diverse in what I offer with a few other things. This wait is killing me because I feel it makes so much sense to just pull off WL candidates.

I understand. My original post does not apply to you specifically but still holds overall.

If you are URM, putting you on the WL is very likely (not always, but very likely) a strong hint to retake the GMAT. They have a pretty high average GMAT and dont want to jeopardize that. Or your quant is worrying to them. They are not sure you can keepnup and don't want to risk it if they dint have to ( if you fail, they lose money and reputation).

If this is the case, would advise you do MBA Math asap. Do an update letter if there is anything else you can point to in terms of doing the quant work successfully, if not included in original app.

If you are URM with a good test score, your interview likely did not go awesome. Do an update letter to remarket yourself, hopefully under the guise of a promition or a new position if leadership in almost any form.

I'm a URM (mexican). I'm pretty diverse in what I offer with a few other things. This wait is killing me because I feel it makes so much sense to just pull off WL candidates, and now they're going to reopen it up again, extend deadlines, cancel GMAT requirement. Ughhh

I've actually submitted 5 updates in 3 weeks since being waitlised. 3 of them were very short (couple sentences) and 2 were medium length (a 1 min video and 2 paragraph update). I'm getting anxious because I feel this is the best time to be on waitlist, so I'm updating a lot because they're taking so many people off. Hope 3 short and 2 medium isn't too much.

Kellogg says no to deferrals. An applicant has to reapply next year if he/she can't get a visa or else attend classes online.

I feel like this headline is a little bit misleading because it leaves out the option of attending the class virtually if you can't get a visa in time.

Hello there,

Would you please give me more information about the "MBA Math"? I haven't heard from any school yet, but it wouldn't hurt if I send them an update since my GMAT score is low.

Thanks in advance.

Wow..very surprised to see this. Don't really understand their rationale either. Seems like a tough way to put international students in a very uncomfortable spot between paying for a potentially very diluted experience or risking not getting in with a reapplication.

The other side of this is domestic applicants might be facing a similar issue. If classes are online visas dont really matter and then schools would be offering deferrals to internationals to avoid online classes but domestic ones would be stuck. I dont believe classes will be online (or for very long) but thats just me being devils advocate.

Has any one reached out to admissions to get further explanation about these new decisions?

Is it bad to be blunt and ask where do we stand in this weird application process?

In the waitlist explanation video, it says an opt-in email will be sent out on 4/3. But I never get it. Is there anyone like me?
