I did not get an email but if you go to your check status page, the WL sign-up is below where you click to sign up for an interview.


I'm not seeing a link to the WL sign-up on my application. You're talking about the page that shows the green check marks for interview, gmat scores, and links to the waitlist letter?

Yep, that's where I found mine. It's sort of buried at the bottom, under the section titled "Forms."

Maybe it's different for double waitlisters. Mine has a green check mark there already for my waitlist reply from round 1 with no link to sign up again.

Ditto! Double WL'ed here. Just got the email but I can't see the form to fill out on my status page.

I had sent the Ad Com a quick note yesterday asking them about the enrollment form. Got a reply this morning saying that I don't need to fill it out. Kind of conflicting ... the email from yesterday read very much tailored to double WL'ers and it said, "We manage our waitlist on a round-to-round basis, and require all waitlisted candidates to fill out the Waitlist Enrollment Form each time a new decision has been rendered. As a result, we have opened the enrollment form for you and it should appear on your applicant status page. Similar to last round, this allows you to decide what is best for you, and helps us to better understand who is genuinely interested in remaining on the waitlist."

Yep, I just got a second email saying that the form is up now. A little bit of mix up at South Woodlawn this morning, I guess :)

I think I will just provide my updates in a video format since they seem to be so excited about this new medium.

I was going to post another letter of recommendation. I was told by the admissions office to just have my recommender email a letter in any format the recommender likes. Has anyone else done anything differently?

Thanks.

Also, does submitting a new LOR even help even if it provides new info? Just wondering because:
1. Adcom has limited time and patience and probably dont want to read anything more than a page.
2. There is no format to the LOR so its really very informal.
3. Judging by the history of others who got off waitlists and didn't submit LORs.

I just dont want to piss my recommender off by asking for another letter so late in the game (he submitted a few recs for other schools for me and its been almost a year since we've been talking MBA).

Advice?

To fellow double-waitlisters:

After filling out the Waitlist response form on the application website indicating that you do want to remain on the waitlist, did anyone get an email from Booth confirming this? I didn't and was just wondering because I believe after doing this after being wait-listed in R1, they sent something confirming this. Thanks.

I did not get a confirmation email. But everything appears fine on the status page...

It looks like the Google Doc with the list of wait-listed applicants has been modified to remove a lot of the rows/candidates. I can't see any reason why this was done. Perhaps it was a mistake. Does anyone have an idea? If not, I was just going to revert the changes that were made so we can all benefit from as much data available as possible.

I think a filter was on which was hiding a lot of columns.

I think that only when your LORs are really strong, insightful, and adding values other than what you have presented in your application package, should you have them submitted.

I'm wondering whether any R1 waitlisters who got accepted in R2 also received scholarships from the school? Is there anyone out there who was waitlisted but then still received a scholarship?

What's the likelihood of this ocurring for R2 waitlisters?

Scholarships??? Ha, just get me in!

On a more serious note, how are you guys submitting updates? Via e-mail or uploading to the website?

Well gotta decide if pursuing the Chicago wait list is worth it with other options on the table...hence the $ question.

Chances of scholarship money for wait-listed applicants upon acceptance seems highly improbable. In addition to the good points made by Consulting2Finance, scholarships are nearly all handed out in R1 and R2. This is stated on Booth's website itself. I definitely wouldn't count on it.
