Are you serious, man? You surely deserved admit @ GSB more than the rest of us (IMHO). So I am happy that there is justice out there

I don't though, thats the thing. I don't have the highest GPA and I don't have the highest GMAT score, and I don't have the most impressive work experience.... In the end, I'm not that different of an applicant than the rest of you. I certainly don't have 7 years of supply chain mgmt exp in the healthcare industry! I may have earned this, but I didn't deserve this anymore than anyone else here.

Being a R2 applicant, I've found this string interesting but definitely not uplifting. However, as people pontificate about reasons why they got waitlisted, I wonder what those of you waitlisted were looking at studying at GSB. Investment banking? Finance? If so, I feel that the level of dings/waitlist may have more to do with very strong "pools" looking to get into investment banking. Perhaps, those looking to get into a different area are the ones who get accepted below 700....just a thought

I am looking forward to a career switch from SCM to consulting and explicitely told that in my essays. I'm not into IB.

A good thought, but its not the case. I specifically asked the adcom this some time ago and they explained that your goals are evaluated in terms of completeness and thoroughness of thought, reasonableness (i.e. I saw one person one say their short term goal was CEO) etc - they do not use them to "make" a class that's balanced across concentrations. That is, because so many people end up studying something other than what they said they would study, trying to build a balanced class by looking at supposed stated goals or concentrations is meerly a futile excercise.

I'm applying in R2 and would love to go to Chicago.

But I think too much value is put into Chicago's #1 ranking. App volume is up everywhere, and the #1 ranking won't effect too many people.

Does anyone know how the waitlist works? Does Chicago give out acceptances for R2 applicants before turning back to the R1 waitlist? Just trying to get a feeling for the sequence here.

Don't despair! Obviously you are doing something right! Any idea why waitlist instead of accept? I wonder if GSB gives feedback to waitlisted candidates?

The email from the Admissions office indicates that the Admissions office will not give us any advice as to why we were placed on the waitlist.
