The one thing that gives me hope is that BW forums does not have many admit yet. Probably 10-12 counting Gmatclub. They must be extending close to 200 admit todays, at least, if the program is 550.

Let's see if we get more luck soon.

An admit on BW just reported receiving a scholarship. So much for my theory. :)

I would imagine so...

does anyone know for sure if today is it? Is there even a slight chance that there is an admit tomorrow at 9, despite not getting a call? I find it hard to believe that they will get to everyone. Last year, in R2, they did call just about everyone, but they started the two days prior.

Good question, I don't know how many adcom they have but tha'ts a lot of people to call if we are close to the 400 mark. Even with 10 people, that's a bunch of calls to make.

That might be because they admit slightly more people in round 2. From last year's thread it does seem anyone ( specially those residing in US) who did not get call by the end of the day got dinged.

This does not apply to India/ Asian residents due to the time difference though

I think today is it for U.S. applicants. I don't think anybody here heard any news but waitlist/ding on the decision deadline date.

I got called, in with some $$. Good luck to everybody waiting, there are some really great profiles in and I'm sure there are quite a few more calls to go.

This is what time they started calling people last year, and they called people for 4 hours. They started 4 hours early this year, and we are just at that mark. Personally, I think they're almost done.

K88 - what's your profile?

it would be interesting to start a thread for those accepted detailing profile, if they're going to admit weekend, etc.

Its eerie quiet here. I am really curious about this application's result. I had a Booth insider's recommendation but also had the 'craziest interview'. My mind is constantly thinking 'Did that interview keep me out?'

So I'm in as well! Just got the call. Internationals - don't lose hope. It's 10pm now for me and was sure that no call till 8pm = ding. Nice surprise.

FYI, admit weekend is Mar, 6-7. CU!
