As December draws to a close each year, Goizueta’s MBA admissions team gathers for a very special ritual: MBA decision release, or what students have affectionately nicknamed “Call Day.” With great delight, admissions team members call prospective students to deliver very good—and life-changing—news.
Current Students Reflect on Their Own Goizueta Good News
“I remember the morning I received my call. I was getting ready for work and talking with my girlfriend on FaceTime. I answered the phone to Susan telling me that I was accepted to Goizueta Business School and given the Consortium Fellowship. I was so excited that I almost forgot that my girlfriend was still on FaceTime watching me run around like a child. In that moment everything I did to get to this point became worth it: from building the confidence to apply, to spending late nights studying and writing my essays, to attending every Goizueta application event I could find time for. I felt like everything I worked for had come together perfectly and I wish that feeling on everyone who receives their calls.” Myles T. Henry 23MBA
“When Susan called me to let me know that I was accepted to Goizueta last year, I was in the middle of observing a teacher (I was an assistant principal at the time). I saw that she had left me a voicemail and I immediately had this physical feeling that it was going to be good news. I quickly listened to her voicemail and called her right back. I am so thankful for the opportunity to learn from my teachers and classmates at Goizueta.” Katie Hoole 23MBA
“I remember it was a rainy day and I was sad because I had still not received a call even though I had been checking Clear Admit obsessively for the past week. Then I saw I had a missed call from an Atlanta number. I immediately called it back and Susan Mellage told me the exciting news. I definitely started jumping and screaming! It felt like I had won an Oscar. Just hang in there, good news is on the way!” Stephon Harris 23MBA
