Has anyone heard back from their AdCom contact yet? I called and left a voicemail this past Monday, but that's it...

Hi ANT,
I left message on Tuesday morning, hopped on a plane, then realized that I forgot to say I'd be out of touch. I called back during my layover and my contact answered. She didn't seem perturbed that I called again. In fact, she said she had tons of voicemail to get through. I think I'd call back if I were you. She gave me some direction on what to include in my letter (unclear career goals, perceptive folk those AdComs) which I'm hoping to send off this week.
Good luck.

I left a msg for my waitlist manager last Tuesday (Jan 4th) and haven't heard back. Will maybe try to call again tomorrow (gives her a week to respond).

There's no available information about waitlist % admit. However, some people estimate it at something around 50%. I think it's better to be WL than having to reapply next year. Chances might be higher and the work is easier than doing an application.

I called my WL contact and he didn't give any feedback. He told that nothing was wrong in my application and they're figuring out how many admitted will give up. The only advice I got was to write an update of recent events if applicable. I believe this can be of help for all of us.

I called the Adcom a few days ago and got a bit of tailored feedback as well.

The 50% number sounds high to me. At this point, I really think it will be dependent on how strong they feel your application is and how well you mitigate their concerns. That and a whole lot of luck!

Heard back from my person today, mentioned my low(er) quant gmat score, which bums me out. Wondering if I should re-take before the February round? I have already sent my score report out for my R2 apps, so I'm assuming that if I take it again but choose not to send it out, no one will see it?

I also didn't get much feedback from my WL officer, was just told that they are waiting to see how round 2 applicants look.

Got no specific feedback from my WL manager, she just said if I had any updates, I should write a letter. I was promoted at work and have gotten more involved with a couple of my EC's, so I submitted that on Friday. Would like to hear (either way) ASAP as I have a couple of deadlines for other schools coming up soon!

I spoke with my WL manager over the phone. She said she is away from her desk a lot so that is why it took her so long to get back to me. She confirmed that those are the 2 main dates they will notify people, but my friend got a call on a random day toward the end of Jan last year that he got in off the WL, so who knows....

Hopefully we all hear back before then though since that's still a long time away... I sure hope so. It's tough not getting any love and not knowing what you'll be doing next year. Anyone considering a visit who hasn't been to campus yet? Any thoughts on whether that'd help?

Everyone's profile will be different so you can't really use someone else as a benchmark (your gpa is higher than mine).

Yeah for sure, I just figured that was the only reason they gave you, assuming all else was fine, but doesn't sound like they really went in-depth with the feedback. Hoping for good luck for us both! _________________ Manager Status: LBS, MBA Class of 2013 Joined: 19 Oct 2010 Posts: 128 Location: India Schools: LBS (Admit), Insead (Admit), Wharton (Admit+$), Kellogg (Waitlist), HBS (Ding)

I am a waitlist for the 1Y program.........given that the class size is just 80-90 in all for the 1Y, I think my chances of a conversion are really bleak.....I have submitted my deposit for LBS.
