Does anyone know how many were WL in the second round, how WL's from first round were admitted? What percent of WL's usually get in?

710 GMAT, 3.3 Engineering undergrad, 8 yrs experience, live in US, work in IT

Applied Round 2, interviewed quickly after submission, put on waitlist March 28th. Accepted to UCLA Anderson.

I really want into Haas, hoping to learn something tomorrow during the Q&A. I need to figure out what I want to submit...not looking forward to asking for another letter of recommendation.

Anyone looking for some tips can PM me with their profile and I can try to help with your WL updates. I can suggest some actions based on what I feel might have worked for me.

I expected a larger number than 55. I remember someone mentioning there were 30 on the WL after R1. obviously, it has no correlation whatsoever. I just hope R3/R4 does not bring too many superstars

R1 WL chat had 43 people, 4 being moderators. Today's attendance of 55 is high or low depends on number of applicants in R3.
They opened R4 which means the number of applications that came for R3 is not very high or brilliant:)

i'm a bit frustrated with the waitlist protocol. They essentially opened up the gamut on how to improve your application.

You can: retake the gmat now, or sign up for the gmat post April 27th, and inform them when you're taking it, take the stats waiver, sign up for the waiver, sign up for a stats class, tell them you're getting promoted, rewrite your essays, write any additional supplementary information and email it to them, get a 3rd recommendation, add more description to your jobs, etc

Am i missing anything else?

It's way too many options. I understand they need more information to help them identify who to pick off the waitlist but there should be a most standard procedure that everyone should follow.

Here's some unsolicited feedback. Long, so applogies in advance. This reflects my opinion only and no more information than people on this list have:
1. Re-taking the GMAT doesn't make sense to me if you're already in the median range. Even if one gets an 800, it just shows that the applicant can do almost any grade school math problems in 2 minutes....this is just a hurdle to pass to show that you can grasp basic concepts and shows you can get into study mode if needed.
2. Taking the stats waiver might be beneficial but I wouldn't put too much weight on it. Given that they ask almost every admitted student to do the waiver suggests that almost everyone that gets admission, does so without taking the waiver exam.
3. Re-writting essays are useful if you feel you weren't able to do your story justice and didn't get enough time to write properly. Psychologically, I think it helps because they are forced to read your story again and remind themselves why they liked and put you on WL to begin with. On the other hand, if you're not substantially improving your essays, or if you contradict your first submission, it might just piss them off.
4. Any change to your position or resume that would better describe your role and responsibilities would help in my opinion. Doesn't have to be a promotion only. Could be a new project, a different cross functional group you're working with, a salary increase based on your annual review (showing you're a valued employee and have potential)
5. It's frustrating to wait, but try to keep in mind that the adcom likes your application to put you on WL - they don't have time to waste reviewing your application again in comparison with new applicants, if they didn't think you had a really good chance. The WL is just giving R3 and R4 applicants a fair chance, albeit at the cost of frustrating you.

Hope this helps in some way

Fellow Waitlisters,

Does your status still say "Waitlist" or something else? Mine still says "Waitlist"

Hi, yeah I know the decision will be made on may 30th. But if I remember right, from waitlist it generally goes to "evaluating" or something before we get the actual decision.

Last round the status was updated to "File under Review" on Mar 18th for me. The result date was around March end.
So I expect the status change should happen this week.

Mine too! Lets hope for the best. Having been in this situation for couple of times already, I have lost all the anxiety. At this stage, either I get in or I move on with life. :)
