Haha true. The list just keeps getting bigger


Maybe some of us will get an invite today. Is strange that nobody has gotten invitations for the 2Y from the waitlist so far

Did anyone get an official status update in their application? Presumably it is safe to say at this point that no contact = waitlist continues?

Pretty sure that no one from R1 waitlist gets an update (unless accepted) until June 24:

Hey guys,

I got an admit call this afternoon around 2:00 p.m. West Coast. I was waitlisted from Round 1. Best of luck to all of you! I applied for 2Y Full Time Program - sent in only ONE email update, no additional letters. I also never spoke to my waitlist manager, who never responded to my email.

Congrats man. You must be thrilled.
I am getting the feeling that Kellogg really improved their yield this year and that they won't be admitting to many people from the wait list.
This is just a personal belief. I can't base it on anything accept some conversations I had with people from the same geographical area as mine who were accepted.

I'm still clinging to hope! I've been admitted to a few programs - wondering whether I should tell Kellogg that I'll throw it all away for the big K! Ideas? Thoughts?

Definitely tell them that you have other admits. Might get you a decision faster

I'm just so worried that it may be a faster "you're out." Would be really depressing... :(

Of all the updates that Kellogg expects, admits from other schools is one of them. Its also a measure of how good you are and that might make them think deeply on your candidature.

You can always put a deposit down and see what happens with Kellogg. It is not the cheapest option, but keeps you in the game. I am not sure they are going to have much movement until Deposits for R2 are done at early of May.

Well definitely tell Kellogg the deadline of deposit to other schools and how you are eager to be a part of kellogg.

Ironically I just got the ding from Kellogg at the same time as I started to draft the e-mail. I'm a bit shocked to be honest. There was a lot of correspondence with my WL manager, 3 relatively significant updates. I did not expect the ding to come so swiftly or painfully :(. Good luck to those that remain on the WL!

Wow sorry to hear that Psyched! Was it the automated "check your online status" email?

whoa I didn't even know they're dinging people...sorry to hear psyched :(

I have heard that the WL is also a lot smaller than years past, so that could be the reason for the limited movement.

Yes. That's why I knew it was coming. I literally spoke to my WL manager on Friday and she stressed that Kellogg was still very much interested. However, I guess it was not meant to be. I'm left wondering whether I should have sent this e-mail sooner. S I G H.

Man the timing is just so odd though. Guessing this means the dings will start rolling soon? Again, really sorry to hear about that, I know you wanted Kellogg really badly. Do you know which way you are leaning out of your admitted schools?

I think the timing is the most surprising part. I literally spoke to my WL manager on Friday! She gave me no indication that anything was amiss, so my guess is that some decisions were made earlier this week (Monday - Wednesday).

I still want Kellogg really badly but I think it's not make or break.

Dinged after waitlist from R1. Kinda sad because I loved the MMM program but I've come to grips with it and will be continuing to the Ross School of Business.

Good luck to all other waitlist applications!
