Same here. DING. I honestly don't know what more i could have done. I thought for sure I would get in, much less remain on the waitlist.

I updated ADCOM on a promotion at work, additional international responsibilities at work etc. I met more SOM students, reached out to the ones I'd previously met and even reached out to clubs I previously mentioned I was interested in. I even attended the Yale Philanthropy Conference at the suggestion of a current Net Impact member where I had a wonderful experience and had the pleasure of meeting Professors Nalebuff, Sheldon and Kolditz, all of whom I had meaningful conversations with. I attempted to help a current SOM student with his internship interview which just happened to be at my current company (all of this was on my Update Letter). I truly don't know what more I could have done.

wow, sorry to hear that NYCFinanceGuy. That is a certainly an impressive WL effort. Hope you have other options lined up and if not, there's always next year or other non-MBA alternatives! You gave it your best shot.

I'm also out. At least the waiting is finally over ~ onwards to Johnson! Good luck to the rest of you's and congrats to those admitted!

I just got waitlisted today. but wow.. sorry to hear about your decision. It sounds like you literally did everything you could and to me those look like some solid updates/improvements... that really sucks.

WL'd --- if you don't intend to stay in consideration, are you supposed to withdraw, or is it sufficient to just not submit the form to stay on the WL?

Once you click on the form, there is an option to put "no".

i feel the same way (not knowing what more I could have done and expecting to be rewarded), which is why i've become so disillusioned with the whole process and am honestly a little sick of it.

Do these tips still apply? Is it okay to ask for feedback if you're not quite sure what the "soft" spots were in your application?

Those look like good tips to me! Granted, SOM doesn't seem to be giving the WL any love lately.. :/

Shocked to find out that I was put on the waitlist today for R2...assumed I was dinged because I didn't even get invited to an interview. Anyone else in the same boat? Do I have any legit chance of getting of the waitlist at this point, or should I assume that I'm pretty much near the bottom of the list (because no interview)
