I called Admissions yesterday and was able to get the contact info for my Waitlist manager. I couldn't get through to her though, so I left a message. Looking at the earlier posts in this thread, it sounds like the Waitlist managers have a lot of voicemails/messages to go through, so it may take a little while before you can make contact with them.

No, and I think I'm out of things to tell them for the year.
Like the commenter said a while back, I doubt they'll add many from the WL. They're Kellogg after all. Are there really people turning down offers in the numbers you'd need to have a fighting chance of getting off this populated combined WL? Despair! Or whatever.

sounds about right, just checking. I had some interaction with my manager a while ago and she mentioned my file was with the adcom. her tone sounded rather ambivalent... 'either wait or take yourself off.' o well.

Anyone know how long does it take WL managers to get back to you typically? I left a voicemail earlier in the week.

Also wondering if some WL managers are more helpful than others? Any insights will be much appreciated.

I left a VM on Monday and didn't receive a response. Sent a follow-up email yesterday morning and she emailed me back last night.

That said, she couldn't fit me in for a ~10-minute conversation until Friday. These folks are busy.

I wrote an e-mail to my WL manager as she was travelling, asking her when it would be convenient to call. She replied and we talked over the phone.

In terms of helpfulness, such a difference may possibly exist, but honestly, I don't believe this has anything to do with final decisions. At least this was in my case..

Thanks a bunch. It's helpful to know what's going on.

I have called multiple times with my WL manager and could not reach him. Is it better to leave a voicemail? I have also emailed him but not gotten any reply. Has anyone got any feedback on their application that you need to focus on while sending the "significant updates" ?

I'm especially interested to hear if anyone was told to re-take the GMAT or take a class.

Hi guys. How you know about your waitlist manager ? Did you send an email or called ? Are you R1 applicants ?

Thanks,

I called my WL manager and asked if there were any glaring issues with my application. She said that there was nothing really to improve upon and that they were waiting to see how the rest of round 3 shapes up. I mentioned that my GPA (3.44) was a little below average and that I was planning on retaking some classes online. She discouraged me from doing that and said that it would not be a good use of my time.

FYI: If you do need to redo any classes, check out LSU's online classes...ridiculously cheap ($350 for 3 credits/hours) and fairly easy.

I have sent e-mail to admission office, but yet to get reply. It would be helpful to share the feedback from WL manager such as retaking test or taking summer school. Also, is there possiblitly that R2 waitlister will be denied in the first decision timing, mid-April?

No, I probably wouldn't volunteer that information. Kellogg wants students that will fit into their community and they might be offended if you imply that your fit/acceptance with another school should make you a stronger candidate for theirs.

Totally another story if they ask for that information - then definitely feel free to share which schools you were accepted to.
