Thank You. Yes, I heard back midweek. Now I need to go visit campus to help make decisions. I have heard the go to the best school line a lot, but it is difficult to turn down money that will allow me to graduate debt free. We will see, and best of luck to everyone else.[/quote]

Were you also a R1 waitlister or R2?

Does anyone know when R1 and R2 waitlisters from the 2012 application cycle started hearing back relative to the R3 decision date?


Yesterday was the deposit deadline for admitted R2 applicants, so they already know the class size admitted at R1 and R2. I hope we hear something next week



I'm a R1 waitlister who finally got the call yesterday from Stephanie - I'm in!!! From what she said, it sounds like they are revisiting the waitlist and making some decisions as they approach the R3 decision date. Good luck to others on the WL who are waiting to hear back!

Does anyone know if the same admissions team that reviews applications also reads scholarship applications / essays?

Some of the material from my application essays would work well with one of the scholarhips essays, but I want to be sure someone new will be reading it. Clearly I would not be cutting and pasting full essays, but want to at least use some of the same ideas.

Thanks in advance.

Got an email from Haas - Waitlisted further! :(
Any others with updates on the Haas application? Any suggestions on what else I can do ? I did a campus visit, alum rec, another professional rec and letter of continued interest.

Got the same email too. I saw a couple of people on gc who got admission off the WL. Are there any more out there who got the same email or who was released from the waitlist? According to the email Haas released "many" applicants from the waitlist.

I really don't know the answer here, but I can tell you how I approached it:

I figured that there is a Financial Aid team that is separate from admissions but has access to your original application package, and I assumed they'd at least review your application briefly when considering you for a grant or fellowship. With that mindset I decided to write entirely new essays, though obviously there might be some overlap in material. In one case, for the need-based grant, I briefly explained some circumstances and then included a parenthetical that basically said "I address this issue more extensively in my original application". I figured I didn't need to waste precious words (that essay was limited to 250) and that if the person reviewing my app really wanted to learn more they could dig up my original essays. I have no idea if this is kosher, but I did end up getting a need-based grant.

Some different fellowships might have different approval processes (if I donated a ton of money for a regular fellowship I'd probably want to have a little input in who got it, right?), so don't necessarily assume the person has combed through your entire app, but avoid the urge to recycle material if you can.

Hope that helps -- maybe someone with a little more visibility in the process can chime in.

I have to admit, I chuckled repeatedly when I read this. But may I suggest that you never, under any circumstance, take a job to be on an Admissions Committee? Haha

I had the exact same question when I was applying for scholarships, so I picked up the phone and called the financial aid office and just asked them outright. They were very friendly and forthcoming- I don't remember the exact conversation details, but who reviews your scholarship app depends on what you are applying for; for example, if you are applying for one of the academic ones (marketing, finance, etc.) people from that department review it (potentially along with some admissions folks? can't remember). Others have different people reading it. In any case, they didn't necessarily have my original application in front of them so I was told I can recycle stories if I wanted. That being said, I didn't get awarded anything, so perhaps mrbucket's approach was better.

I think, if in doubt, give them a call and ask about the ones you're looking at. Can only help.

Waitlist continues for me as well. It seems as if it wasn't as selective as the email suggested. Good luck to everyone. Keep fighting the good fight.
