I'm in! I just got the call 5 minutes ago from Chicago area code. They called my home phone first, then my cell. Good luck to everyone else!

I think I just got in! I got the call about 40 minutes ago- actually, I missed the call, but checked my voicemail, and it was an Adcom member "calling to share some good news." I was asked to call back, but had to leave a message myself. So, I am pretty sure I'm in. I better be because I have already started telling coworkers, family, and friends.

I feel like they will be making calls throughout the day. I'm not international, am in the Midwest, and have no idea if there is any scholarship money involved. Good luck to everyone still waiting- I am sure I'm not gonna be the last admit here.

Good to hear that they are still making calls.

my phone has been off (on purpose) since 2...not turning it on until 5, hoping for a voicemail!

This is by far the happiest thread in the forum...especially comparing it to Cornell, MIT or Kellogg.

I also want to congratulate the wealth of GMAT clubbers getting admits here. Don't forget the little guys that helped you along the way when you're all Booth bigshots :wink:

I apologize for being such a pessimist this morning; this wait was not easy. I just received a call from the admissions office informing me that I was accepted! Best of luck to everybody still waiting; I'm pulling for each of you.


I told you in the chat last night that it was a done deal! Major congrats!!!

Hey everyone, not as cool a post since I'm not in Whistler like Rhyme (even though he really laid it on thick to go)...but congratulations to everyone!

I can't believe it's been a year to the day since I was in exactly your guys' spots. Fair warning: time absolutely flies for the next year, so get ready!

Hope to maybe see you guys at an admitted student weekend soon. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions! I'm sure Rhyme and Kwam would be happy to field questions, but I'm the best guy to ask, being a native Chicagoan. :o

Congratulations jlola! Did they tell you about the scholarship, or did you have to ask about it? The admissions person who called me asked if I had any questions, and I was too excited to think of any.

She told it to me right away - I told her, "I'm so excited, I'm driving and I think I'm going to crash!" and she goes, "well don't crash! I just need to tell you a few things first, and then you can get back to driving," :) and she spit everything out then. I think if they probably didn't say anything then there isn't any $$ from my understanding.

They tell you about it in your phone call. Congrats to both of you!

Still nothing. It's 1:53 PT. I don't think any calls were made after this point last year. I'll keep my hopes high for a couple more hours and then it's on to H/S/W applications.

Maybe a couple internationals, but no Americans that I am aware of.

Yeah - this is difficult, especially after a solidly executed application.

looks like this is it. It's 4:05 here in Chicago. I expect probably the last couple of calls remain. I think I read that a couple of ppl who were left vm's were asked to call around 430-500 so they must be expecting to wrap up around now.. Percentage wise there are a fair number who have gotten in so not really holding out much hope. Now its just a matter of is it a WL or a rejection tomorrow.

Good thing those R2 apps haven't been piling up.. oh wait. well good luck to those still waiting..

my phone is still off, but i have zero hope - it just seems like such a long shot...

the frustrating part of this is that I have been through this for two years now...waitlist, waitlist, ding, this is my fourth decision date...and i'm so used to the drill that I can't imagine a positive response.
