I am on waitlist. Need advice. [#permalink] New post 09 Jul 2013, 17:40
I am applying for a Part-Time MBA. I got an interview two weeks ago, but unfortunately just received notification that I was waitlisted.

From looking at other people's comments online, I think it would be a good idea for me to try to strengthen my application somehow. I feel that I underperformed at the interview and could do better if given a second shot, so I am trying to think of a way to request a second interview. Do you all think this is a good idea? If so, any advice for what could constitute a good justification for requesting a second interview?

Requesting a second interview is tricky. Any chance you can go to visit the campus and sit in on a class. Then let the adcom know when you'll be there and ask them if they have any questions for you.
