Trying to cope with the fact that I am east coast and have not got a call :(

I was in the second round, as was AspiringAcademic and a few others.

Still, I don't think they are going strictly east-west and certainly not alphabetically. Hang in there!

Thanks, and congratulations!

So far all the KB1s submitted/were complete before the first week of November. So, for those who applied post-October, I guess we're getting our responses after thanksgiving.

Has anyone been rejected? Or waitlisted?

Is a KB1 an absolute requirement for admission, or are borderline candidates less likely to get one but more likely to be held for a while and then decided on?

When people talk about when their apps went complete, you're talking about getting the complete email, right? So a decent amount of time after you went under review? Any idea why H does it like this?

No one will get those (WL/rejections) until next year.

So even those getting waitlisted-accepted will eventually get a KB1?

Under Review. Anyone know how long it takes to get a KB1 after this point? (provided you do, in fact, get a KB1)

Yes, usually it is KB1 - WL - KB2 in that case (or at least from the examples I know). I had friends WL for a week and then get a call.

It looks like they send the complete emails out in batches. In my case, I was obsessively checking my status checker and saw that it changed to complete before it changed to under review.

It depends on your numbers. People with autoadmit numbers seem to be getting them in a fairly short time span. I don't think any of us borderline candidates have gotten one yet.

So what percent of people who get KB1's eventually get KB2's? Any statistics out there or even best guesses?

Eh, I dunno. 172 4.0 is undoubtedly impressive, but I would still call it borderline. Here's hoping they pick up more of us scrubs in the next round :D

I think like out of a 1000/1100 KB1s, 800something get in. So you're not in for sure, but chances are high.
