And the waiting begins...I cracked a joke at the end of my very serious video. Hopefully they don't think I'm mocking them. I'm really mocking myself.

Ended up revisiting, going to a class, and submitting both a video and an additional letter of recommendation, this time a character reference. We'll see how it goes.

For those who submitted a written update, did you guys try to keep it under a word limit?

I just set a word limit of 500 for myself and stuck to it..

I don't think the word count will matter as long as what has been written has been edited well and makes perfect sense..

Hello, does anyone have additional recommendation send to the school? How do you confirm if the school receives the letter? The founder of the NGO for which I volunteer sent a recommendation for me to the school by email but she hasn't heard anything back from the school. So wondering how to make sure the school get the letter?

From what I understand, if they sent it to the general admissions e-mail (admissions@chicagobooth.edu) and included your reference number, you should be fine.

My "reference number"?? what is that..
when i called the office to ask them, they said that they will be able to attach it to my file based on my first and last name and that it should be sufficient...think that is cause for concern. Either ways..nothing that can be done now...Good luck everyone for next Tuesday..

Your reference number appears at the very top of the page when you log into your account. I had also forgotten about it, and my recommender submitted a letter without the reference number. Yesterday, I confirmed with Booth that the letter has been added to my application file. So, you shouldn't worry about it.

Good luck everybody!

Yeah. I visited in person, did the video, wrote another essay and had an alum write a letter of support. They actually said when they called that they were impressed with how I handled being on the waitlist. Apparently they weren't freaked out by my borderline stalking.

I was lucky to travel to the US on a business trip around the time I was waitlisted. I visited the school for the first time in Feb. I also submitted an additional update essay and the video.
I didn't think my video was exceptional.. It was just a simple 90 sec video of me speaking about myself..Very unlike some of the great ones folks had listed on this thread..

I improved my GMAT score, sent in a work update and video (nothing too fancy though) and got an extra recommendation. Basically, I gave it my all... So happy it paid off. Didn't visit though but now I definitely will.
