Post Submission

I am applying to five schools and this is what happens after the deadlines in each of these schools:

HBS:
  • The status will change to submitted and will remain the same till Jan 17th 2007, the HBS R1 decision deadline.
  • After review of applications, HBS will start sending interview invites from early November till the decision deadline.
  • The interview invitees will receive an e-mail with the subject line: "HBS Interview Invitation."
  • R1 decisions will be available on the Apply Yourself website on Jan 17th 2007.
Wharton:
  • The status will be submitted once u submit the application. This will change to Complete - Round 1 after the Wharton AdCom finish verifying the application packet.
  • After review of applications, Wharton will start sending interview invites from Oct 19th 2006. Invites will be sent till Nov 16th 2006.The status of the application will change to Invite to Interview.
  • The application status of the candidates who are not invited to interview will change to Deny on Nov 16th 2006.
  • R1 decisions will be available on the Apply Yourself website on Dec 21st 2006.
Chicago:
  • The status will be submitted once u submit the application. This will change to Complete after the Chicago AdComm finish verifying the application packet.
  • Status can become Incomplete also. The AdComm will contact the applicant in this case.
  • After review of applications, Chicago will start sending interview invites from Nov 1st 2006. Invites will be sent till Nov 15th 2006. The status of the application will change to Invite to Interview.
  • The applicants can verify the status of their interviews through the Interview link in the online application. This will be In Progress after the interview has been scheduled and will change to Complete once the interviewer had submitted his evaluation to the AdCom and they've verified it.
  • The candidates who are not invited to interview till Nov 15th 2006 will be notified of denial through the online application system.
  • Applicants will have to log into the online application on 4th Jan 2007, the R1 decision deadline, to know the decision. The status of the online app will change to Decision. I heard the AdCom calls admitted people (before the decision deadline) to inform them of the good news :)
Kellogg:
  • The status of the application can be identified by logging into this site with the credentials which would have been mailed to the applicant by Kellogg once part 1 has been submitted.
  • After review of part 1, the applicant will receive an interview invite.
  • Kellogg says they start providing admit decisions approximately one month after the application deadline. This applicant will be intimated through mail that a (and not what) decision has been posted and he/she has to check that out in the same site. Decisions are released all the way till the decision deadline.
Stanford:
  • The status will change to submitted. I have no idea on whether this will change in the course of the admission process or whether it will remain the same till Jan 18th 2007, the R1 decision deadline.
  • After review of applications, Stanford will start sending interview invites. The interviews will be held from early November till the decision deadline.
  • R1 decisions will be available on the Apply Yourself website on Jan 18th 2007.
More info as and when I figure out...
