On a lighter note, going to Booth also means that you might run into fabulous Fab...

A questions to all previously waitlisted admits: After being waitlisted is the admission rolling, meaning we can be admitted any time off a waitlist, or will all of us once again be notified a day before the R3 deadline (May 15)?

Thank you for the help!

Well, congrats to all who got in, I am also in, it wasn't easy, yet, when I am looking at you on this site I honestly don't want to study with most (not all) of you - you are neither interesting or well experienced. I see you are talking about yourself, yet, almost none of you mention any hobbies or any meaningful charity or social work. To see if this school is good, I visited campus, took a tour, interviewed with a second year who was acting quite strange (I would expect better training of those who interview) and went one step further, I checked out profiles of few currently attending students from my country (since I am familiar with what "good" background is like) and I can say that whoever is making decisions in admission office at Booth are clueless about applicants from abroad. I am yet to make my decision on whether I want to attend or not but going through this experience I learned that at least as far as admission goes - it is a joke. Anyway, I may see you guys and study with you so won't leave any info about self here but get ready you bit..ess.

The best MBA people I ever met in campus visits, MBA events, alumni, and in businesses are Booth graduates. It is one of the best if not the best.

I completely agree with the people who are being realistic after being placed on the waitlist in R2. The class is full (320 paid the first deposit in R1 and 460 admitted in R2) and will allow for WL to come in if R1 or R2 admitted students decide not to attend and don't pay second deposit.

Speaking of deposits, when are the R1 second deposit and R2 first deposit and second deposit dates?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Where did you get the info on deposits?

Also, keep in mind that plenty of those people might have just put down a deposit in R1 to guarantee a position and might be accepting other offers R2. I wouldn't be surprised if up to 25% or even more would do that. Booth only requires an initial deposit of $1,000. It's not a huge committment.

Yeah, xzeppelin, that's what I was trying to say earlier. I think this is particularly true in round 1. 25% may be high but even if it's 15% that's another 50 sports or so. Congrats on you acceptance by the way.

If HBS (admissions director's blog) says they have around 50 spots for their WL, I would assume all other schools should have at LEAST more than 50. Excluding the weird Stanford.

Would you want to?
Perhaps its less work for you/your recommenders, but from what I understand showing growth between the first and second application is key, and your LORs can provide insight to that growth.

in the current point in time I would want to leave the LORs unchanged, since I think that my relationships can spoil over the next year given that I've announced my decision to leave for MBA. But probably it's better to wait until the next season and to reassess my position within the current employer.

You might be our lone R3 applicant. When did Booth say the invite window is?

I'm in for R3 too, haven't heard anything as yet. They should be sending out invites between today and April 25th. Fingers and toes crossed!

Once invited to interview in r3 what do u think about the odds of getting in...i guess they should be better vs r1 and r2 invites dont u think?

They have prety much their classes full so if they actually invite you that might mean they want you or your profile...

any thoughts?
