Approximately what time have people been receiving e-mails? Do you think all the R1 decisions have been sent out via e-mail?

Just got the waitlist email. I guess I am bummed, but I am still deciding whether or not to stay on the list.

My first inclination was that I must have done something wrong in my application since my GPA and GMAT are decent (and I am a female, not that it makes it a guarantee at all but my understanding is that sometimes standards are a bit different). I really spent a lot of time and effort on my essays, visited the school twice, not sure what to think. I also thought maybe it was something my recommenders said...but then I got into Darden using the same recommenders so they couldn't have said anything too horrendous.

I will say that while I showed enthusiasm in my essays and interview and gave specific reasons for wanting to go to Fuqua (specific clubs/classes, etc I would contribute to), I never once said Fuqua was my top choice. To be honest, it isn't and I didn't want to be dishonest. I also listed all the schools I applied to in their application, again wanting to be honest. Maybe that was a bad call. Would they really put me on the waitlist because they weren't sure I'd attend?

I guess the yield management theory makes sense, but I also think it's important to take a critical look at what I might have messed up, too. Maybe I'm being too hard on myself.

Any ideas on this? And also--I don't want to potentially take a spot away from another applicant--but it would also be nice to have a choice to compare Darden to in the event that I do not get into my other schools. Does it make sense to stay on the waitlist if I am not absolutely sure I would attend?



After my Johnson interview... I can say it was 100% my interview that got me on the WL... Although I showed my enthusiasm.. I just dont think I conveyed the legacy I would leave on the community, and stumbled pretty badly on that question. So, I'm assuming I only had a so/so evaluation from my interviewer.

I'm in a similar spot decision-wise too. Although I think I'd decide to attend, I'm not 100% sure. Its your choice to stay on or not though, I wouldnt feel bad about taking spots away...


Yeah I feel you...there was one question I stumbled on as well about the three reasons I should be admitted to Fuqua that caught me off guard. I wish I knew if that was it, though!

I wouldn't worry about taking the spot of another applicant. If you are still interested in Fuqua, you probably should join the wait list. Best of luck with your decisions.

Haha I'm in the same boat (or castle) as you! I batted .667 for wait lists in R1. Boo!

And now I'm beginning to wonder if doing the voluntary interview prior to completing my Duke app was the best idea. I definitely wasn't as prepared for the interview as I would have been had I conducted one after submitting my app. Oh well no point in thinking about that now...

Dear lb0215, first of all, congrats for you to get the Darden offer. And please DO LEAVE your seat to others who has not yet got any approval. As you said, you already had the decision. It's a waste and energy-cost for you to keep on the waitlist in the school which you are not so sure to attend.

For those of you who have submitted the form to remain active on the waitlist, did you receive an email confirmation, or a status change in your application? I want to make sure the form went through, but also do not want to submit it multiple times...

I did not get a confirmation email, but there was a confirmation page. I think if you got to the Qualtrics page at the end you should be fine. Are you planning to send an update to the waitlist email soon? If so, that'll be a good reinforcement just in case.

Yep no confirmation email for me either, but this looked very much like a survey monkey type form where there is no response.
Also add me to the waitlist list!

You are in a good position right now, with an offer from UVa. It is very noble of your to think about other applicants. However, you shouldn’t worry about other applicants. You would only take away a spot if Fuqua gave you an offer, and you turn it down.

The question you should consider is, “if I get an offer from UVa and Fuqua, would I consider taking Fuqua’s offer?” If the answer is “yes”, then stay on the waitlist.

Agreed. The only reason you should not stay on is if there is a zero chance you would accept an offer... Even then, if you decline an offer, it will be redistributed the next round... So, there's nothing to feel bad about at all.

Last year I didn't I get a confirmation like that until about 2 weeks from the decision date. I think adcom waits until after the deadline they give out to confirm with everyone -- check back around the 22nd!

What he said. The deadline to confirm on the waitlist is the 22nd, so I wouldn't expect a confirmation until then.

I sent in an update to my file and got an incredibly kind letter from someone at adcom replying to it. I think they know they'll be plucking some of us off the waiver wire, I mean waitlist.

Thanks krudget and aerien for your replies! I guess I'll just wait till the 22nd then for the confirmation (dont want to be haunting the adcom with repeated submission of my waitlist form) =)))

Did anyone of you also write to inform your interviewer that you are waitlisted? I am thinking if its right to do so, or would it look bad on me if I did or am I actually expected to do so? any thoughts/comments..?? thanks again

I have been on wait-list since EA round. After filling the form/survey, I did not receive any confirmation on wait list...however I am sure that I have not been removed from the waitlist since I keep sending them updates and always receive a response/confirmation that they have incorporated the new info in my application

hi guys, please add me to the waitlist....
I've noticed that Fuqua said we can provide an additional recommendation letter, did anyone know how to send the LOR? can I send the info by myself or ask my supervisor send a paper mail to the school directly?

Thanks for helping in advance. hope everyone of us can get rid of the waitlist!

Just looking through last year's thread, it seems WL movement started to come out with the R2 results. A few R2 WL-ers were accepted with the R3 results, but it looks like you have a much better chance getting off the WL when you're placed on it in EA/R1. Good luck all!

FYI - on GC, I found 5 WL admits last year all from EA/R1/R2 (~30 total). Not sure if that percentage will hold true this year, especially given GC's sample size of the applicant pool, but at least it's 1 data point to think about.
