Is the second call the acceptance notification, or is it another round?

It's an acceptance.

Hi Inferno,
Thanks for the encouragement. I'm hoping for that second call sometime around Thanksgiving, but now I wish I had said some things differently. It's a difficult task because in the span of 6-10 minutes you really want to present yourself as best you can, but are virtually certain to forget some things or stumble along the way. I imagine my performance was rather average as far as these things go.

I'd think that the second call might come a little earlier than Thanksgiving, but I'd better not specify my guesses as to exact dates, because I'd hate to have you panicking about a lack of a call because I guessed the wrong date.

And I certainly agree that it's a difficult task to shine in 6-10 minutes, both becaues of the short time span, and because you have no notice of exactly which 6-10 minutes of the day it will be. When I got the first call from Toby, I was actually watching porn (!) and had to ask him to give me a minute, to turn everything off (although I didn't tell him why I needed a minute).

Mike,
Someone else can probably answer this better, but from my understanding a phone call is a really good sign. I think a significant majority of people who get called end up getting in, and I don't think I've ever heard of someone not getting a call and still getting in. Someone else can probably answer these questions more definitively. It's still very early in the cycle, however, so I'm sure there are hundreds more calls to be done.

It's hard to say because this is only the third time Toby is doing The Call. The first time was my year (two admissions cycles ago). But over the past two years, I think that most people who get called get in (in my year, it seemed that almost everyone who got called got in). And I also have not heard of anyone getting in in the past two years without first getting The Call.

And of course, the admissions are rolling, so some people will be getting the Second Call before others get the First Call.

Is there a consensus that people who have already received emails received the email on 10/25? Did anyone receive emails this week?

Classic.

Do you think you could ask him to call back another time?  What if you were taking a poop?

That's when you "miss" the call.

I suppose pooping while watching porn would be a bad time...
