So how the hell do we get off waitlist, assuming "decision not ready" means waitlist


I was told that if you were waitlisted first round and stayed on the waitlist, you won't be notified of anything at all... If I knew how to get off the waitlist, I probably would have done so myself, so no help there. But might provide some clarity to anyone looking for it if they don't hear.

Was also told that this year (as seemingly is the case with every school), they have seen a much stronger applicant pool than ever before and as a result are waitlisting more people to see what their yield is like.

Hey Squig19,

Do you have any info regarding this "Decision Not Ready" thing? What are we supposed to think? I can see people both getting dinged and being put on the waitlist.. But then is this the final decision for today or is it going to change soon for us?

Thanks

I can't seem to push the View Decision button, but when I push the Respond to Offer it asks me if I would like to stay on the Waitlist so I guess I'm waitlisted.

Not sure about the Decision Not Ready piece - it also isn't showing up on my page, so I don't have an idea of what you are referring to. I would think that if you were in you would have heard by now. When I was waitlisted after R1, I didn't get a solid update until 5:20 PM CT.

It's on page two of the decision page, not financial aid page.

So if the decision page only has 1 page, that means no scholarship?

So.. I receive an email saying my decision was put up.. I log in.. and see the same "decision not ready" under the Quick links tab.. When I click "Your decision is ready to be seen" I see the same email that I received in my inbox.. Ain't that a surprise.. Well.. I guess I'll just have to email the Fuqua school to understand what this means..

others in the same boat.. Are you guys experiencing the same??

Thanks!

"Decision Not Ready" turned into a waitlist offer after about 30 minutes. And the waiting continues...

Congrats to everyone that was accepted. It looks like a lot of us have been accepted into multiple programs. Any advice from R1 admits or current students reading this forum on how to decide between multiple schools.

Hey dmang,

Did you also receive the email saying View your decision? I'm not sure how am I supposed to react.. I'm definitely happy that I'm not denied admission but I cannot be sure now, can I? This is hard... :?

Thanks!

Congrats to everyone! So I have a question that is probably only relevant to very few but I figured I'd post it anyway: Did any Peace Corps applicants receive any info about the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows program? I don't see any mention of it on my decision letter or under the financial aid tab, so I'm wondering if I didn't get it.

ding! looks like no MBA for me this year. i don't expect to get of wait list at HBS. this has been beyond stressful. preparing all those applications and working hard day in and out only to not be accepted into any program. i am unhappy at work and don't want to attend a tier 2 school. I don't know what to do at this point. i am shattered. not one admit.
