I just submitted additional essay last night. I think mine was a bit late compared to you guys as I had to wait until pormotion list is announced. And yeah, I got promoted!

I devoted every effort into 8 pages of PDF file with extra caring on the design of the format.

So let's see what will happen. Yay!

Wow, 8 page pdf for your update, thats really long! I had the understanding that these update letters are usually a letter or two but maybe I'm wrong. Do you mind my asking what your wrote about in such a long letter? I feel I do not have enough material professionally and personally to cover more than maybe 2 pages at most. And I actually have not written my letter yet either but plan to do so next week - hope thats not too late! I figured since they said they don't look at waitlist candidates until mid March that an update in early Feb would be fine. What do you guys think?

How long were everyone elses update letters?

I agree that 8 pages seems like a lot (maybe even excessive, sorry shushu, but that's just my opinion--perhaps your situation warrants a longer update though). I was wailisted at another school and my plan is to send an email with headings for the update (i.e. professional, leadership, volunteer work) and then put 1-2 bullet points below each section with new accomplishments. I think it might amount to 1 printed page. I'm not doing an additional essay, but if you felt that your essays could use improvement, it might be worth sending an updated version (particularly since the Yale essays are so short).

I think this is definitely one of those quality over quantity situations...I'd tend towards brevity.

I sent a two page pdf consisting mainly of my recent accomplishments
and I also tried to explain my MBA motivation in a detailed manner.

I answered few questions that were posed to me during the interview
where I thought I could have done better.

Overall I tried blending all of these into a single essay.

The contents are 4 pages only, each page with one theme. I updated my current work status, why Yale, why MBA, and my life-long plan I kept in my heart for over 7 years. Think my posting triggered some noises here lol. Just because I also focused on design and format, the number of total pages is more than of actual contents. Not sure if this would work or not, but I am just doing all of my best.

I may be the last one here to submit an update letter but im hoping to send mine off this week. Was waiting on a few things to develop so that I could effectively include them in my letter.

I know one person got off WL last year in January but that was an extreme case due to his/her specific situation. Anyone know when we'll realistically start hearing anything regarding this waitlist?

I spoke with an Admissions Officer back in January and she told me that the committee will not look at the waitlist until mid-March.

I don't know specifics about this, but to me it looks like you guys will be evaluated with the R2 decisions. Hopefully you guys will hear good news March 28th!

Just curious but has anyone on this forum taken themselves out of consideration for SOM due to acceptance at another school or for any other reasons?

Just got a "Yale SOM Wait List Review" email from admissions. Looks like the Waitlist may actually see some movement this week as AdCom starts looking at our updates and probably has a final count of Round 2 admitted students.

Anyone else get this email?

Seemed to be a generic email to all WL candidates just thanking us for our patience while remaining on the WL and that they would review candidates this week. Also asking that if our plans have changed and we would no longer like to be considered then we should inform them.

Got the same email. I like at the end where they say if they offer you a spot, they expect you to accept.

I got the email too. I was freaked out at first time as I thought that it is a ding letter.

Believe we will be notified with R2 candidates on 28 Mar?

My hands are getting wet with being nervous.

Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Nothing yet here. Where'd you hear/read that we'll have our status updated online today?
That's a bit reassuring and a part of me would prefer a straight up Ding/Admit as opposed to having no update like Fuqua..

No idea if we'd get calls if accepted. In addition to what @Aerian stated above about getting updates today, I confirmed with AdCom when I gave them a ring earlier this week that we will get some sort of a status update but that could be a Ding, Acceptance, or invitation to remain on the WL.
