So I missed the call late this afternoon - they didn't give any information, just asked me to call back. I called back and left a message but haven't heard anything, and I assume they are done for the day. Is it safe to assume that I am in??

OK just got through to admissions, I'm in!!! For those who are wondering, I did NOT do the video. Wrote a multi-page update package and got an additional letter of rec from a current booth student who I worked with on a M&A transaction

I did both and the video. I actually shot stills on campus and included them in my video.

For those keeping track, I'm in New England. I have not yet received the admitted student info. Slightly worried, but I'm guessing they must not be finished with their calls. Safe assumption?

Very safe. I was told that we wouldn't be receiving the admitted student information until tomorrow afternoon. So, no worries.

Whew. The adcom guy said "tonight" so I've been on pins and needles, esp after someone posted in the all applicants thread that there's a google and facebook group that you can only access after signing into the admitted students site. In hindsight, this must have been someone admitted in R1.

For the first time in AGES I feel like I can breathe.

Congrats to all those who made it off the waitlist!

Feel like I'm the only one on this forum who didn't get the call yesterday :(... I'm just completely exhausted, I gave the application everything I had, then sent in 2 letter updates, the video (which 2 Booth alumni, including my interviewer thought would seal the deal), and also got a letter of support from my interviewer (i didn't ask, he volunteered!). I know that at this level (and my demographic - Indian Male), it's probably minutae that differentiate successful candidates from others, but it still stings bad!!
Even after all that I put in, am I not good enough for Booth? I must be, 'coz I'm on the waitlist. Then what more do I need to bring? I know its too early to tell (don't even know if I'm wait listed again yet) but this whole process has just left me so completely drained - and now I'm in that Twilight Zone where I'm seriously doubting my own abilities.

Sorry for the rant folks, but needed to get it off my chest somehow. I've just been completely distracted all this week, and not getting a call doesn't really help the cause. Not that getting the call would have made much difference (would have been more distracted!) but you know what I mean.

Hey, cheer up. It sounds like you definitely put in a lot of work on your app + additional materials more so than some others who got off the waitlist. MBA admission process is a crap shoot so don't take it personally. I am on the same boat (Booth R1 waitlist) and I didn't receive a call yesterday. Wherever you go, it's what you make out of it more so than where you go. You, me and everyone knows that even H/S stamped MBA doesn't promise success down the road. It must be tough but brush it off and move on. Tomorrow is another day and try to make the best out of what you have. Let's face it. I am sure you know many qualified dinged candidates with better work exp, gpa, gmat, and etc. than an avg. Booth admits. Things happen. Don't take it personally. When it comes down to picking ppl from a very talented pool, schools have all the luxury to pick and choose to make the class as diverse as possible. That surely doesn't mean you are less qualified than others who got in... it's just that the mix didn't go in your favor - that's all. Keep charging!

Ding. What a joke. Visited, made a video, update letter including awards at work, bonus, raise, taking business math course, passed industry exam, etc. Don't know how everyone else made it off the waitlist.

Still on the waitlist. You're really making me work for it, Chicago Booth! My boss compared it to the hazing that occurs when you're pledging a fraternity.

R1 WL'ers: Do you guys have an idea of what you will be doing now? Withdraw or send more updates and wait 2 more months? I wonder if I should look into putting together another video, getting more letters of support ... Very frustrating!

Rd1 Waitlist, Rd2 Waitlist... Stop playing games with my heart~
Submitted 2 Status Update Letters, the video, a letter of endorsement from current Booth student, and additional recommendation letter.

I'm out of bullets... Any thoughts/advice on next course of action? Thanks
