Sorry to hear about the ding, rjacobs, liubhs, YihWei, and Smokedpotatoes.

For W/L, definitely set up your interview between now and R3 deadline (end of April) so you can be considered after R3 deadlines come out. Strengthen your application using the methods in your W/L letter as much as possible, and indicate your interest to stay on the list. You could possibly retake the GMAT, but try to do it early April so you can send your scores in.

Best times to visit campus are M-Th. I would recommend a morning class, lunch with students, infosession, and an interview, or interview, lunch with students, infosession, and a class. Contact club leaders for clubs you're interested in. Update your job status if there are changes, take a class in quant if your GPA is low, add 1-2 recommendations, etc... I think those are all great ways to show interest.

Let me know if you're coming on campus. Maybe I can meet with you if my schedule allows (Wed-Thur are better for me).

Good luck!

Ding for me as well! I sent my degree certificates and they received it last monday. I hope that didn't hurt my chances. Well, the aplication process for me has almost reached to an end.

kryzak,

I have a 680 (89%) on my Gmat with 86% in quant and 76% in verbal. I am placed on the waitlist. I know this is lower than the Haas average of 714. Do you think it would be worth the effort to retake the test?

Since my verbal score was lower would it be beneficial to supplement my application with a class?

hi m2009,

That is something that I don't really have an answer for. If you feel that you can improve your score to the average, then I would say go for it. Otherwise, I would think long and hard about what part of your application is the weakest and address that first. Sorry I can't give more advice since I don't really know your full application at all.

just when i had given up all hope, i got WL! i was already thinking about what my re-app would look like for next year.

congrats to all the admits. condolences to the dings. i know the ding pain all too well!

to the other WLs, good luck to you all! really work hard to strengthen those apps and i'll see you on wednesday's WL chat.

kryzak, thanks for all the tips. if you want to update me on the list, i submitted 12/9 and got WL notification on tuesday.

my WL game plan is to write a 700 word ish statement on the new developments in my professional life. unfortunately after taking a break from app season, i am only now getting into doing extracurriculars, so not much to talk about there. i have an interview coming up, and i will ask for one recommendation. i've already reached out to haas students and visited campus last month so no plans for that right now, but i can tell you haas students have been super supportive and helpful. i can't recommend this to you all enough.

anyone have thoughts on if it makes a difference sending in these things super soon as opposed to towards the r3 deadline?

Why surprizing? If you read the admission stats of previous years you will see that Haas is more selective than either of those two.

You've got to factor in that Haas' class size is 1/4 that of Wharton's and 1/3 that of Kellogg's, and not surprisingly has a smaller acceptance rate than either. It's also a little more GPA intensive than most other schools, even the M7s.

I'm in the same W/L boat as you. Will be going in for my interview in early April... I'm pretty much going to be doing what you've suggested and plus a gmat retake. When I spoke to the adcom office today, she said that everything submitted before the r3 deadline should be sufficient. I asked if I submitted things as I got them ready and she seemed to think that was fine.

Does anyone know the timing of how adcom generally reviews W/Ls? Would they only look at the W/L pool starting April 28th? I'm assuming after that point, most of us R2 W/Ls should find out fate by end of May? I'm particularly interested in the timing b/c I may enroll in a calc course but the spring course doesn't even start until mid-May and ends late June at the earliest.

If anyone can shed some light, that'll be appreciated.

sorry to hear about the dings...

as for waitlist questions, I'm guessing R3 will be considered around end of April/early May. That's just my guess though.

Hey Kryzak-

No word yet on R3! But, just in case, when is the second Days at Haas weekend?

It's so frustrating to not be able to get over the hump, even after interviewing, sending in 2 add'l recs, and sending in a waitlist update. If this were any other year other than this year with such a high app volume, I'm sure I'd be in by now Cornell w/$30K will have to suffice!
