The email mentioned Sep 15th. Did you receive an email confirming that they received the additional information?

I would say that there is a high chance of being admitted for the following reasons:
a. We were acceptable candidates as we remained in the Waiting List for almost a year and we are now given the opportunity to be admitted on early decision. If not they would have dinged us and requested to re-apply and improve our application. I think that if they dingged us now they didn't want us never because you were not accepted for next year's class in early decision. That is not in line of remaining in the waitlist.
b. They are almost sure that we will accept as we will not apply to other schools (early decision) and probably we will be requested also an early down payment. This means that we are highly committed to LBS.
c. We do not compete with other applicants.

Anyways, there is also the probability that they would like to chose other students in the future, or the last information you sent was not good, or that they only admit a handful of applicants in early decision. However, I think this is less probable.

same ... They really have no respect...
They could at least provide us with feedback... I would understand if we were dinged right when we applied but we were a few who remained... How difficult would it be ?

I agree! We devoted so much time and energy to them and were so loyal! I would never expect that from them!

Ding for me as well, although they have asked me to apply next year with a higher GMAT.

The journey is over for me.

Wonder what percentage of those in our position got accepted? I thought it was weird when they asked for an additional update on plans for the coming year. They may have put too many of us in the 2014 waitlist, and needed to filter a bunch of us out.

I doubt... There would have been more people on this forum then. It seems it is exactly same quantity of posts like last year. So I think it is about the same...

Ding as well! Wow... that's a bummer! In my evil plan I was going to be accepted and then I would reject them, since I'm going to another school anyway. Oh well, god didn't let me have my revenge this time!

Good luck everyone! I visited the school and to be honest, I didn't think it was awesome... I liked other schools way better! So there's something better out there for us...

Guy, got the email accepted. They do pick up people from the waitlist. Wanna know who is on the same boat?

For those didn't make it, life will pay you something better in another way for sure!
