Admitted to Kellogg!

Got a call from Kellogg’s admissions office while on the subway from JFK to my friend’s apartment in Washington Heights. While I couldn’t hear everything she said to me, I got the basic message–I’m in!! The call was definitely a surprise since I just interviewed last week. In fact, I was debating whether or not to pick up the phone at all since it was an unknown number and I had the day off. Good thing I picked up!

This takes a little bit of the pressure off and now I definitely won’t apply to Boston University. I’m visiting Columbia today and may still apply there if I am impressed by the program. HOORAY!!!

This is a huuuuge burden off of my shoulders since I was totally frightened of being rejected across the board and having to work at my company for another year. While I love what my company does, I’m tired of the politics. I’m ready for a new challenge and it may just be in Evanston!

    I think it will come down to admitted student weekends and possibly finances. I really like Chicago much better than Philadelphia, but Wharton’s program is more tailored to my needs…

    But we’re jumping th gun here. I haven’t been admitted to Wharton yet!

    […] According to Bschool Diva, Chicago applicants will have reason to relive the eager anticipation of childhood Christmases this year, although it appears the big day has been moved up to December 19th …  Wannabe’s sure hoping for a gift from the GSB under his tree, deciding that a renewed focus on quality, not quantity, however, is the best strategy toward receiving one.Β  Meanwhile, B-School Bound is surprised by the news that Kellogg has begun to render Round One admits; Mbabound08 is living proof of that – he rode the relief line all the way from JFK to Washington Heights after receiving a much anticipated phone call from admissions.
