So I just got waitlisted without interview from Round 3! I'm kinda surprised because I figured I'd just get a straight rejection especially this late in the game. I'm sitting pretty well with my acceptance to Cornell but I'm wondering about recruiting for Management Consulting, is Stern a significantly better choice? Any advice for what to do to improve my chances? I only applied a couple months ago so there isn't much I can really do to show how I've improved in the meantime.

I was wait listed in R2 after I interviewed. It's mid May now and still no word. I already submitted extra essay and rec a few weeks ago. This is a very grueling process. Any thoughts or insights on when we'll find out would be much appreciated!

Trust me, I was WL in Rd 1 and it's killing me. If I had an answer for you I would let you know.

Yea no clue either. I'm basically operating under the assumption of reapplying for 2014 and if something happens sooner then that's great.

That is literally the exact same mentality that I have. Let's keep it positive and look at it this way... Rd 3 deadline to hear is June 1....they should take 2-3 weeks to review the WL and then maybe send some invites (all just speculation but hey, a brother can hope).

Thanks.
I was waitlisted after having my interview (I was invited to interview in Mid March and interviewed in early April).

I haven't seen much activity in terms of the NYU waitlist since May. I was wondering if anyone's heard anything?

Sorry forgot to post, I was on vacation last week. I was dinged last week, June 3rd. W/L without interview since January and finally got the rejection. It's okay because I was operating under the mindset that I would be rushed to attend and pack up my life to get there and was planning on reapplying, which I will definitely be doing. Stern is definitely my top choice and will be the same next year.

Nah no word. Considering withdrawing my app. It would kind of leave my employer high and dry if I found out any later than the next week or so.

At this point I'd just wait that extra week and see what happens...you never know! Keep in mind that Stern starts towards the end of August so you do have a few more weeks to get things in order compared to those schools that start at the beginning of August.

I haven't heard of much movement in the WL either, which is a little surprising since it's June.

Sorry to hear about the ding Future, and aerien, I will probably wait until the end of next week before withdrawing. At that point though might as well just let that waitlist spot go to someone who actually could attend. I'm already working on the CBS app for 2014 anyway haha.

You know it. Also if you stay engaged with GMAT club I'd love to hear what you think about Yale after you've been there for a month or two (in the unlikely event you have time for such things haha). I'm strongly considering adding it to the mix of schools I apply to for 2014.

It's like they read your mind... so what's the verdict? McDonough or reapply?
