Perhaps a more pertinent question: what were the two deposit deadlines for students admitted off the waiting list in early June? Did you need to pay both deposits within two weeks from the offer? If that's the case there may be some spots freed up this week if some people declined

I also understand 2nd deposits for admitted round 3 applicants are due by Friday 1 July so there may be some further activity post the 4th of July holiday.

Hey do you mind sharing your background/Work Ex etc.? If you've sent any updates recently or if you did anything at all from the time being waitlisted to yesterday.
Thanks.

sure, I have around 6 years exp in IT software and 2+ years as startup entrepreneur. I am a R2 applicant. I have worked with a Booth Alum and so, requested him to send a letter of support after the waitlist! I believe that helped!! Also, I responded to the recent email expressing my continued interest in the program!!

Do international students still have time to process a visa even if they get positive news now???
I really never expected things to turn out this way; this has been the most punishing, excruciating wait I've ever had to endure in my life.

I remember reading that they will consider international applicants through early/mid July due to visa process requirements. Maybe July 1st, but not 100% sure. Check the waitlist FAQ.

The silence before the storm...My guess is there may be another wave of dings (primarily) and a few acceptances coming this week given last week's 2nd deposit deadline for round 3 applicants. I would think that at this stage they would try and trim the waitlist at least. It seems that last year there was a wave of dings in late June.

On the other hand, there may well be no movement at this stage as it all really depends on other programmes' waitlists. People who paid the first deposit already in Round 3 would still pay the second unless they hear back from elsewhere. Perhaps we might see some more movement post the 18th by which time Wharton is meant to revert to all waitlisted candidates. Although I understand that Wharton's is a rolling process so they may revert to all prior to that date making it more murky. Who knows...

Has anyone heard anything at all from Booth?

I see that WithHopesToWin was admitted on the 21st but I haven't heard anything since that email on June 6th the day all those people were admitted. Does anyone have any idea if anyone at all has been denied from the waitlist yet?

Did anyone respond to the early June e-mail suggesting they would need a response to the waitlist status by late June/early July? Not sure what to make of the absolute silence...

Did you happen to respond to Booth's earlier email about how long you would like to sit on the WL.

I haven't heard anything either. I would imagine if you haven't given a deadline to Booth, they might just keep you on the WL until the very end.

honestly the possibility of anyone getting thru at this time is negligible... so we all know what our fate is heart-of-heart. It's hope that we were banking on for a very long time and this was inevitable sooner or later!
