Is it a new waitlist letter? If so, I don't know what more they would be able to tell you. I'd probably hold off.

Yeah !!

Early Waitlist letter stated:

" We were not able to conduct your interview so your application is incomplete. We have put you on waitlist, we will conduct your interview in the next round and complete your appn and....."


New Waitlist Letter:

"We are sorry due to the competition we are not able to offer you admission right now and blah blah..."

Any inputs? Should i call them up and seek a clarification ?

I would say DONT CALL THEM. What do you need clarification on? It seems like you were just placed on the waitlist again.

Just remain on the waitlist, send in an additional rec, and then an update letter in a few weeks.

Good luck!

The worst part is my interview was conducted by the adcom member (personal one) and she said that i was a stellar candidate and she would be shocked if i don't get in !!

So should i give her that shock atleast ? ha ha

I mean should i tell her..and ask some inputs from her ?

or else i should just hold on and chill !! (prob i got too much carried away by the interviewer's comments)

Wow that is definately very very rare that an interviewer would A) say that B) you dont get in after they say that.......

Whether or not you contact her, you should examine how the interview ended. Did she sound very open to the thought of you contacting her directly with admissions questions or was it more "if you have any other questions about the program, please contact me"?

If it was the latter or you are not sure, I again would not contact them directly.

I got waitlisted as well. I have already tried to take my GMAT once again and still cannot get 700+ score.
But I got admit to Northwestern's MMI program (part-time mostly online). At this time, I still haven't made my decisions yet.

Rejected!

I'm happy that I got the ding after I got an admit from a great school which I've decided to join.

I don't feel bad at all! :)

Congrats to everyone who got in!

So, I was waitlisted... frustrating, but still better than a ding.

I have someone who can write a third recommendation for me. my question is, should she write just a general recommendation or should i get the questions Fuqua asks on their online form and have her fills those in instead?

Thanks!

I guess if she is willing to write a detailed recommendation, I'd go for it.

Have her write about whatever is most beneficial to you. If the stuff online covers it, then no reason not to. But if something would better suit you both, then do that. There aren't really rules with this additional stuff - you just want your candidacy in the best light.
