Checked portal today, my daughter was accepted. No email was received.
Anyone else?


Congratulations to your daughter! Mine hasn’t heard anything yet. If you don’t mind me asking, when did she submit her application?

Thank you!!! All items were sent complete on 9/28. Best of luck!

Good luck! We were 10/8 and still haven’t heard either.

D’s friend heard yesterday and she applied around 10/1.

My daughter applied with petition for direct admit to Kelley. I’m not sure how it works–will she hear from IU first, then hear later about Kelley? Or will her Kelley petition affect her IU decision?


How did your DD complete the petition? DO you mind sharing?

She just followed the instructions on the Kelley website. There are additional short essay questions to be completed.

I heard you get accepted into Indiana first and about 2 to 4 weeks later you will hear from Kelley. So hopefully we will hear soon. Good luck

Thank you! I hope so. My daughter’s application is dated 10/6, so I hope she hears soon. I can relax once she gets one acceptance in. I worry about these things way more than she does! Good luck to you, as well!

My DD just got her acceptance this afternoon! Super excited!


FWIW; Applied on 10/10; Accepted today 11/2; OOS; no test scores submitted. Go Big Red!


This is fantastic!! Congrats. Do you mind sharing her GPA?

Sure. 3.8+ (unweighted; school does not weight; but 5 APs (three this year) and 6ish honors classes); Good extracurriculars (given the limitations of COVID-19); No standardized test taken

Ahh! This gives me some hope. Similar stats and rigor. Also no test scores. Congrats again!

Submitted 9/09. Completed 10/19. Acceptance on portal 11/02.
