Is anyone who was waitlisted planning on doing anything in the mean time or just waiting for the next decision?

Do they inform people about the financial aid over a period of time or in one go? I've received an admit and Im counting on aid. How long should I wait before I know for certain? Also does the time take to inform us have any correlation with the amount of aid?

Thanks in advance!

I received fellowship info in an e-mail last week. Not sure if this information is sent out in waves or all at once.

I was wondering this too. Has anyone heard from the school? I emailed the adcon about a week ago asking what I could to strengthen my application and I haven't heard back.

I guess I'm in the "fortunate" (?) position of having a crappy GMAT score. I took the test after cramming for 3 weeks and have since raised my score on practice tests quite a bit. I'm retaking the test the first of March and (hopefully) will submit a higher score before they make their r3 decisions

From my very limited understanding of how adcoms work for MBA schools, waitlisting is generally a good sign. I mean, accepted is better but hey, you take what you can.

A lot of the offers they made will get rejected by people who got into their top choice schools and they will need people to fill the slot. Also, it seems like waitlisted canadites have an overall higher chance of gaining admission than the regular pool. But it does suck cause a lot of us will move over into the denied category.

I jsut got a new job and am debating if it is even worth updating them on it. Oh well, guess it couldnt hurt.

If there is a way you can present it as a promotion, I think you should definitely tell them. Congrats

Good luck~~ :)

This discussion is rather dead, I guess until R3 decisions come out. For those that have been able to visit KF, what are things you liked and didnt like about the program/school?

The stats show 2 applicants were admitted for R3. Does KF give out admission decisions prior to the deadline?

Sometimes yes they do..Specially for the candidates who have secured a scholarship..That's the trend which I have seen in the thread..

I am skeptical about the accuracy of data provided by at least one of the candidates there. He/she claimed to be admitted on Jan 30, which was before the R2 decision deadline.

This forum is unusually quiet. Is the total number of applicants for UNC less this year? Last year's GMAT club forum for UNC was more active; it had added at least 50% more pages around this time. My online status went from "waitlist" to "no status found" a few days ago. Now the status shows some usual information, but nothing suggests that I am waitlisted. Anyone on the same boat?

I just submitted for the final deadline but I interviewed way back in September during open interview period (I submitted late because I was waiting for better test scores).

I'm hoping that I can hear back pretty soon from KF because I'm applying to a few fellowships and for some of them you have to be admitted somewhere in order to apply!

Mine shows same thing. Waitlist decision is now gone. I was waitlisted when I got decision in February. So I believe our application now rolls into next round with the decision date being Monday. Hopefully we will get an update from them.

Yeah, I just called the school, we will get a new decision on Monday... I guess it could be the same decision, waitlisted, but it will be updated
