R2 WL candidate here. I missed a call from eddie @ 8:15am PST this morning and he left a message to call back. I called back every 2 hours or so and have been getting his voice mail. Last call attempt was at 2:00pm PST so maybe they are still busy calling?

Well, things will start getting a bit more lively on this forum in about 36 hours. It seems like quite a few R1 WL got in on the R2 notification deadline last year, so I hope that the results are similar again this year. *fingers crossed*

For the 'Booth or Bust'ers, best of luck!

I'm pretty happy with my application, interview, and WL updates, so if I don't get in, I at least feel like Booth got my best effort.

Can't seem to find any either - I set up a free consultation with admissions consultants to figure out what the odds are. I'll let you know when they get back to me.

Simply put, your odds depend on the year.
While there are great advantages to applying R1, one of the big disadvantages is that schools put a lot of R1 candidates on the WL as they want to see what their entire candidate pool looks like before making final class decisions. They also want to see what their yield of accepted applicants is before they start pulling off of WL. However, do not give up hope as more and more schools are using the WL for this purpose.

There are steps that you can do to continue to enhance your candidacy and make sure that when they start to pull of the WL that your application is on the top of the pile.

According to last year's Booth WL thread, it seems that Booth admits from the WL more than other schools. Although that's just pure, hopeful speculation on my part...

Is the wait list cleared on an on-going basis or one time after R2 results?
