"Southern Methodist’s Cox School of Business admitted three of its 34 wait-listed applicants last fall, Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management offered admission to 29 of the 94 on its list, and Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management let in 40 of 470 wait-listed applicants. Harvard Business School declined to share the total number of applicants who were on the original list, but reported that it ultimately offered admission to 84 of the wait-listed. Similarly, Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business offered that it admitted 16 percent of those on its list."

For those who are curious about hard numbers of the waitlist! Best of luck all ~

I guess the main question is out of 470, how many people actually accepted the WL offer? I won't be surprised if half of the applicants matriculated somewhere else. The next question is how many actually tried to get in (i.e, sent updates/recs etc). I wish they had similar stats for Fuqua.

I won't be surprised given it's Cornell. They are known to WL a lot of candidates, because Cornell is no one's first choice. This shows the insecurity on their part.

I have a friend who is graduating this year, and she mentioned that Cornell has been very GMAT heavy this year and will only accept people from WL who have really high scores. I think this makes a lot of sense, because I was asked about my low score 3 times during the interview. (adcom). It was to the point where I thought that he was being rude and he called my 46 in quant as low (haha). I doubt I am getting in.

I have also heard that Cornell has been focusing on GMAT lately which is surprising because you don't go up in the rankings based on one score. But, I doubt that it's just GMAT.

Has anyone in here been admitted from the WL? I was WLed R3 and aside from the generic WL email from Johnson, I have not heard anything further.

Everybody is focused on the GMAT but GMAT itself has been reverse engineered and broken down by the test-prep companies to the point it has become a science. People who have poor grammar score really high on the verbal and people who barely got by doing math in high-school are star quant performers. It's a joke :-)

Going by that analogy, so is the whole admissions process. You have consultants for everything -many of whom in the past have served on the Adcom- applications, mock interviews, thank you notes and what not.

It has become a joke. As for consultants, schools have recognized the fact that prior adcom members work as consultants. There has been a push-back in recent years.

I'd been monitoring the progress on the site for a while now. It's only fair to give back.

I was accepted off the waitlist this Friday for the AMBA program. Hope that helps. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back

In Round 4? Sorry for that.
One of my friend was invited to interview from the WL(waitlisted without interview in R1)
And admission committee said today, they just began reviewing waitlisted people.
Good luck to you..

Did anyone hear anything today? I did not, and I checked the site. It appears they will wait to see the yield from R4 before making any last minute admissions.

Congrats! Were you added to WL after interview or not?
I'm also waiting for their call since R1 but I'm not sure they regard the meeting with me on the campus as an official interview or not. If not, I have to have another interview again even if they call me.

I got admitted off the Waitlist. I am a R2 applicant and received the call yesterday. I submitted one update (about one 1 1/2 pages long) and one recommendation. Hope this helps. Best of luck to everyone here still waiting!
