Just received another waitlist update from McCombs. They asked to schedule a 15 minute phone interview prior to June 7.

Since their "early May" estimate ended up being May 10th, this seems to indicate that the "early June" update will likely be around Monday June 10. Anyone else receive an email?


I got the same thing. This message board makes me want to think that this conversation is merely for them to make sure that we'll say yes if formally accepted, but I don't want to set myself up for disappointment. I guess we'll see.

Good to hear that. Can you tell what was discussed in this interview and who from the admissions committee talked to you as part of this phone conversation?



dude, how the heck did you make a 720 coming from IB and not get in more places?


Dude finally converted Haas today.... Now I have 3 admits... but yes expected more...

I had my call with a member from the adcom today. After discussing updates and my interest in the program, she told me that she expects the adcom will have final decisions sometime in mid-June with a slim possibility that decisions could be delayed further into the summer (someone please shoot me if this happens). FWIW, She thought the week of 6/17 was more likely than next week.

Interesting...thanks for the info. I also had the call with admissions but I was told that decisions would be made toward the end of next week. There was no mention of it taking any longer than that, and I really hope things are wrapped up soon.

Those of you that had this latest followup call with admissions, did you also do the video interview that was emailed about a month or so ago?

I had the video interview back in late January (but I was a R1 WL, so that may be why). I had my call yesterday; only 5 minutes long. they said to expect to hear something next week.

That sounds pretty similar to my call. I was a R2 waitlist, and yes I did the video interview as well.

Congratulations man. Worst case scenario for me...

Good morning:

While we continue to be interested in your application, we are unable to provide you with a final decision at this time.

We continue to review our waitlist each week and expect to have final decisions available by early July.

As soon as we have any updates, we will reach out to you as soon as possible via email.

UTDB, congrats! But why the tough decision? Have you already placed a deposit at Jones? Go with your gut, whatever that may be. :)

brendxn, I got the same email. I'm in a different position than you though and am thrilled to still be under consideration. Good luck!

Thanks for the congratulations! Yes, I've put in a deposit at Jones but the main factor is that I was also offered a really large scholarship.

Forgot to post this here (posted in the main McCombs thread), but...

Just got an email from admissions saying I am now officially declined (and it's updated on the online system as well). I was R2 waitlist with interview.

Oh well, back to waiting on the Ross waitlist, and if not there either, potentially next year. Good luck everyboday

After careful consideration of your application, the admission committee is unable to offer you admission to the Texas MBA this year. Due to the competitive nature of the program we are unable to provide personalized feedback on the specific reasons why the committee arrived at this decision. If your interest continues, we suggest you apply to a subsequent class. Thank you for your interest in the Texas MBA.
