It sais what they always say, that we are a small group of people, that there is still a chance...also that they may offer a spot for the class of 2015

Same story again! Still on the waitlist. I am thinking of asking them to consider me for next year's session since it might be hard to plan the whole process in August itself.

Anyone else planning on doing something like this or are most of you planning to wait it out till the end? Do you reckon it might effect our chances if we switch over now?

I also received " you remain as part of a small group..." I know isn't very useful but it may give us an idea of how many remains in the WL

Judging from last year's waitlist forum activity we won't hear anything until early to mid September. It seems that most announcements were made around September 15th.

Guys let us try to estimate our chances of getting in....

First - Last year after the Sep 15 date, 7 guys posted ding; and 2 posted admit, bump up the number by say 2 to add the higher silence factor on an admit In total ~ 40%.

Second - the total number of waitlists hanging out there.... All in all there are 14 of us on this thread still hanging. On Sep 15, 6 of us will be posting a happy admit message here.

Also I am quite pissed off with the way things have gone at my end so far... Because of some mistakes, I really really am afraid if my chances are quite low....

To add to this, I have been reading all kinds of signals...

Am I the only one who got a very dry reply from the waitlist manager (to my request to consider me for 2015)??

I had read in the main LBS forum that the course starts on Aug 27. That is in like a week so I guess this year is pretty much done. We should hear something from the Adcom soon hopefully. Anyone received any updates yet?

Ya on the basis of previous year's movements I guess we should hear something next week. I hope they admit us for next year's class.

I hope so too but I've been reading last year's thread and it didn't go that well for most of them in the end...

Ok guys more analytics:

I have analyzed the roll call in gmatclub (where they list the admitted, waitlisted, and denied candidates at the beginning of each thread)

Surprisingly EACH year, with AMAZING consistency.
Around 27% of the applicants are given admits
27% (yes exactly same number each year for the past 5 years) are placed on waitlist
and the rest are dinged.

I searched online info on acceptance rates and yields (LBS doesnt release this data)
Acceptance rate, widely accepted is 20% (highest in range)
Yield, widely accepted is 65% (lowest in range)

Now this gives a percentage admits of 31% at max.

So each year 4% of applicants at maximum make it through waitlists and get accepted.

This translates to 4/27=one in 6 at max will come off the waitlist. Out of the 14 here, 2 to 3 will therefore get accepted. Who are those 2-3?? FK the LBS lottery
