Come on - how can snow delay this? The calls literally take 2 minutes each and I can't bring myself to believe that they are winging who to admit. They definitely knew ahead of Thursday. One possibility is that their yield was either too high or too low (deposits were due Tuesday) and they need to rejigger how many they are admitting / releasing / WL'ing. I really hope Eileen is transparent about what changed....

I don't think it's about the calls, I think it's about the process of sitting together as a committee and making decisions. I believe they planned to review together throughout the week... But weren't able to meet on Thursday so only had an incomplete list. Again, just hypothesizing.

No one knows whats going on, and frankly I don't think there is any point in thinking about it. We should find something out by 5PM ET.

For me I'm just keeping my fingers crossed and literally jumping whenever I get a call / email.

Or could a combination of both.. time to discuss taken away by snowstorm + deviation from yield forecast... I guess we may never know, but we just keep on waiting! Either way, it's going to be all good in the grand scheme of things!

So just to summarize - magically all the people that happen to be in this forum weren't among the ~80% of people that were either released or admitted? Seriously guys - lottery pool. now.

If I had to place a bet on what went down, I'd bet on that something didn't go as originally planned (yield too high, admissions board changed their mind, etc.)

I think something happened and they basically didn't stick to the numbers they said last week. Pure conjecture - but I don't see how it's possible that ALL of us were pushed in that small group.

If any lurkers were admitted or released, mind giving us a shout? Would be super appreciated...

Probably best to flag HBS emails as spam and move on. Unless of course, they inform us that we might either get accepted, released or be placed on another "small list"... then maybe it would be worth wasting another week in march.
