i attended the chat session in accepted.com a few days ago,
MIT said there are about 125 WL-ers of which they expect ~50 to drop off by mid May.
Any movement on WL will start from then... in '07 they admitted 25 from WL and in 08 they admitted none.

Just hope we all will get in :-)



Good luck guys for the waitlist. My sense is that they will accept people from the waitlist. Many of the people they have admitted this year have been accepted at HBS and/or Stanford, I don't know if their goal was to be much more selective but if that's the case, they will be surprised with their yield... Just my deduction from the Gmatclub bloodbath this year.

I admit MIT was a little funky with their admissions this year, but not sure what that'll mean for the WL (MIT probably doesn't even know yet). I expect either it'll be really great or really horrible for the WL, depending on how good they are at predicting their new yield.

Another question for you all...I know they say this (almost every school with a WL says this), but do you all really buy the argument they say about filling spots by demographics by the people that drop out? That seems so silly to me. I can see if there is a dearth of African students or something, and they need to admit one or two of them to pump up their representation; but if one white finance guy decides to go somewhere else, do they really need to fill that spot with another white finance guy?! The class is so big, what's the difference of having one more of any other group?

Frankly I think it's a way of comforting the WLers and encouraging them to apply next year. It seems crazy that it'd be a one-for-one replacement.

A couple of us are still around (see the Ambassador thread for the recent stuff). Waitlist doesn't look good, from all accounts. As the resident pessimist, I think it's over for this year. Unless, of course, you decide to become a Yalie... ;)

Sorry to hear that, praz...waitlists really do suck, and for MIT it's looking like the rest of us aren't far behind you.

Out of curiosity, are you an int'l applicant?

Yea, I reside in USA but on a visa. This no-cosigner loan issue, lack of employment visas are all working against int'l applicants I guess :-(
