Sifting through the speculation on this thread was causing me to start to loose hope. That is, until I reviewed my update video (which was pretty awesome, if i do say so myself :-D ) and reread my update letter (equally as awesome). At the end of the day, at least we should all be able to say that we put our best foot forward.

LET'S NOT LOOSE HOPE PEOPLE!!! :lol:

We don't lose hope but just want to prepare for the worst-case scenario. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst, I think.

Check out this blog post - http://blogs.chicagobooth.edu/n/blogs/blog.aspx?nav=main&webtag=boothinsider&entry=54. By March 9th, the Admissions Committee would have known what the R1 yield was looking like and how many people they were planning to accept in R2. I doubt they would have then encouraged potential students to apply in R3 if they knew the class was already full and potentially oversubscribed. I guess you could counter that the yield was unexpectedly high in R2, but the overall yield so far has been about what they should have expected given last year (roughly 1000 admits yielded 630 offers accepted and a yield of approx. 65%). I won't add further to the speculation, but I like to think that AdCom has a handle on the process. Historically, they've admitted a healthy number of people in R3 (WL and R3 applicants), and there is really no reason to think they won't do the same this year since we have no idea how this year's numbers compare to previous years' numbers at this point in time.

In any event, good luck to all on Tuesday/Wednesday!

Booth calls waitlisted admits on the same day as regular decision admits.

Yes, tomorrow if admitted, 16th if waitlisted/dinged.

I'm not sure if last year is any indication, but R3 calls didn't start going out until after 3:00 CST. Don't be surprised if no one hears anything for a while.

They're busy crafting an email they'll send out this afternoon.

Quote:
Dear Waitlist Applicant,

We understand how stressful being waitlisted is, and we appreciate your patience. Unfortunately, we're going to need quite a bit more patience from you because our class is WAY oversubscribed right now and we could not possibly consider letting anyone off the waitlist at this time. If you would like to remain on the waitlist, please respond to this email with a short note reiterating your interest in attending our program and confirming that, if you are indeed admitted at a later date, Chicago Booth will obtain full rights to your first born child. Also, you may submit an optional 90 second video of yourself dancing while wearing a funny hat. We believe this video will help us assess your fit with our program. Thank you for your continued interest in Chicago Booth. We will be in contact again shortly.

Sincerely,

Ad Com

Not according to GMATClub. Seems that R3 candidates haven't gotten a call either.

From someone on beatthegmat

I called the office of admissions as my spouse is a R3 applicant. They mentioned that some calls are going out today and it is possible that some applicants do not get called today but receive an "ADMIT" email tomorrow. It would be great if one of you could confirm this by calling the office up.


So they at least claim someone is getting in

When I log into my application, it still says that my last update is dated March 21st...however, the letter has changed...

I didn't get an e-mail about it, and I didn't think they were sending out waitlist notifications today (though, I didn't get a notification either).

Very odd. Anyone else? I tried calling admissions to ask about this, but no one answered.

Thank you for applying to the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Full-Time MBA Program. Your application has received the careful consideration of our Admissions Committee. While we are impressed with your application, we are unable to provide you with a final decision at this time and will place you on our waitlist for further consideration. I want to assure you that being placed on the waitlist signals our sincere interest in your candidacy.

This year, our admissions process was highly competitive. While Chicago Booth is grateful to have so many talented students seeking to join us in Fall 2012, we were simply not able to admit all of our most qualified candidates during Round 3. At this time, we would like to keep you on our waitlist for consideration during the summer months. During the summer months, the Committee will continue to review waitlist candidates for admission as spaces become available in the Class of 2014. While we hope to enroll as many waitlist candidates as we can, the possibility does exist that some applicants will remain on the waitlist throughout the summer.

We will open enrollment to the waitlist on Monday, May 21st. You can accept or reject your position on the waitlist by completing our Waitlist Response Form which will be sent via email and displayed on your application status page at that time.

Please contact our office directly via e-mail with any questions or updates you may have. We truly appreciate your patience during this process and wish you all the best.
