Wharton didn't seem to have that problem...

They dinged me. Honestly, at the time I much rather preferred closure to being strung along and then denied. Of course, by then I had Darden in the bag, so maybe it would have been different if I didn't.

Bump. Has anyone heard further news? Seems that if we are still on the waitlist and the deposits have long been due, that we are probably going to be on the summer waitlist? Do you all think we may get any information on how that may work or are we just left to the guessing game?

Anyone want to give admissions a call and ask them if the class is full? I'm too chicken, but I would love to know. I'd also love to know if they're planning on making any ding or admit decisions any time soon.

It would be crazy if Duke was able to fill their class with only admits and the minuscule acceptances from the wait list thus far.

I don't know exactly what admissions does to determine how many people to extend admits to in each round but my assumption is that they target a certain percentage of the class to fill in each round, with leeway to accept more or less depending upon what kind of applications they receive. I think their principle risk is admitting too many people and being unable to accommodate all of them, in which case they would make unrealistic assumptions to mitigate (like assume an 80% yield, double their historical rate).

Running with this, for a class of about 450 they would offer admission to roughly 560 people in total. If the rumored 60% yield is accurate that means ~340 accept, which leaves 110 spots. Obviously the assumptions that I am making aren't the same that the adcom made since 110 open spots would have the waitlist flying.

The point I am trying to make is that if they are full already then they must have made a yield assumption that was pretty close to on the nose. Perhaps a 50% increase in yield yoy qualifies as an "unrealistic" assumption as I outlined earlier. Unfortunately for us watlisters that means that they may have guessed their actual yield :( .

I'm getting pretty ancy in any case.

I just called and got no information. We may hear news any time between now and the start of classes. We will get this information by way of an e-mail telling us to check out status. The nice woman was not able to offer any information regarding available spots in the class or anything along those lines.

Sorry it isn´t any help but now you know for sure how little we know.


Thanks for calling. Too bad we just have to keep waiting in the dark. Being on the waitlist sucks!

I'm beginning to think we are the only ones on this forum. Did you get into Ross or Darden?
