Waitlisted. When should you guys send an update letter?


I sent one around a month before R2 decisions. Fuqua doesn't limit you to one though, just update them with relevant info, and dont flood their inbox.

Good Luck!


Are you still keeping yourself on waitlist?

Also, can they call you before the Rd3 decision deadline or is it going to be on May 18th now.

Last year you had to wait until R3 result date to hear again, but as they've.changed things for R2 you could heat earlier.

As of last year, all WLs received some sort of notice at end of May or so. Some people were dinged and others were put on the summer waitlist. It's a long wait to August.

Not sure, the end of May is a long time to wait when you already have a great school asking you to join... I'll think about it over the weekend

Yeah I agree, but no other admits for me, so I will be hanging out on WL until August, I believe.

Hopefully we'll get some closure either way on Monday.

PS - Am I correct in assuming that if someone is admitted off the waitlist, they will almost certainly not be granted any scholarship money?

Sadly, I think today was the official update... but I guess we'll find out on Monday. About scholarships, yeah, I think I've even heard them say that exactly.

Turned down my spot at Fuqua as I'll be going to Yale SOM.

Dibs on my spot are in the following order: krudget, highwyre, AresZhu. Good luck, guys!! :)


Certainly hope the Fuqua folks know that this is law. :)

Story is fantastic, kingfalcon. Glad to hear you got the Sloan invite. Think you handled the Fuqua call well :) I'm sure that blindsided, when you thought you had withdrawn. Surely adcom will know to give your accept to highwyre as per aerien's queue ;)

International R2 applicant here. I'm waitlisted as well.

The website states that international students must apply by round 2 in order to have enough time to take care of visa arrangements.

Now, I'm wondering how can an international student may receive an offer of admission in R3 deadline, if there is not enough time to issue a student visa...

Any thoughts on this matter?

Internationals tend to get decisions by May (R3 result date). Most people still waiting after that are domestic.
