Handling acceptance and expectation [#permalink] New post 25 Mar 2011, 11:11
Hello:

I applied for two b-schools for fall'11 as follows -

1. UC Berkeley HAAS EWMBA - R3
2. UC Davis Part time MBA - R2

I received an acceptance from UC Davis and the school gave me till April 15th to accept the offer and send a check of $1500. I have not received any decision from HAAS yet. The application is under process. My first choice is definitely HAAS and I suspect before April 15th I might not get any decision from HAAS.

Please advice me what I can do the best?

Thanks & Regards,
Joydeep

Hi Joydeep,

You may have no choice but to accept the spot in the class and put down a deposit. If you get into Haas at a later date, you can always pull your enrollment and eat the deposit. It sucks to lose the $$$ and it will make you feel a little bit guilty, but understand this: it's all part of the game. Schools put people on waitlists all the time and it is perfectly understood that you will get some "melt" from your admitted class as things stretch out. It's just the way things are.

So what I would do is wait a bit longer - maybe a week or so - and then lock up your spot with Davis. If you get into Haas, roll with it.

It's a simple solution, nothing genius about it, but it's really the only way to play it.

Hope that helps.

Respectfully,

Paul Lanzillotti
