I am sure you are in. They didn't want to leave a message because they want to give you a big surprise. :-)

Did anyone get a voicemail from adcom today saying they have a question about [your] application and to please call them back? I'm cautiously optimistic that they don't want to deliver good news over voicemail and that any questions would have been asked before this week, but I have not been able to get ahold of anyone yet today.

I guess its safe to assume that scholarship decisions have not been made yet... however i wanted to ask any 1st round admits about how many scholarships were awarded and if they knew the general criteria for these..

I have a question:

I applied to Emory, McCombs, USC and UCLA.

I got admission to Emory and I got waitlisted at McCombs. I'm really happy about my admission to Emory but McCombs is my top choice due to location and interests. I want to inform them about my admission to Emory to see if that'll help them move forward with making a decision on my position on the waitlist but I'm not sure about the best plan of action. Will it make a difference? Who should I contact?

Scholarships have been pretty rare, but you probably won't get exact info. from the school on quantity. Last year, a couple people reported the scholarships were between $2K-$12K. Of the 50 admitted gmatclub members from last year, 5 reported scholarships (which is strange because 3 of the 5 were in R3/R4. On the McCombs site, they say R2 is the priority deadline for scholarship consideration). This year, only 1 gmatclub member reported a scholarship in R1.

Not heard anything yet. Havent seen many waitlist candidates discussing anything on this forum. Not sure when will adcom come back.


The earliest you may start to see reviews of the waitlist will be after Round 2 decisions are delivered. BUT, does not mean everyone will be reviewed at the same time.

Given that so many people have already been accepted... can R2 people hope for more positive replies tomo?

HI All - I applied round 3 and have still not heard back for an interview invite. Does anyone know the timeline? Should I be worried?

My online status just changed (at right around midnight EST).

Maybe a R1 applicant (or current student) can answer this: The only thing I really see that I can do here is accept or decline the offer. Is that what you had? Is it not possible to see the admitted students site until accepting? Does accepting the offer obligate the deposit?

I am a R1 waitlist .. nothing has changed on my status page or the decisions page. I submitted the waitlist video interview fairly late because of all the technical issues. I anyways royallyu screwed it because of so many reasons so do not really except a call.

But any other waitlist student heard anything?

Maybe I'm blind, but where do I click to see the updated status? I clicked on 'McCombs Status Check' and logged in, and I was brought to the 'My Profile: Home' page. But it just says that my application has been submitted.

Obviously I got the call that I'm in, so I'm not too worried about it, just wondering why I can't find the decision online. Thanks.

Most of the new info comes in the official email. That includes links to the Facebook group and admitted student site. I'll send you the link in a PM if you want to give it a try. Accepting the offer can't obligate you to the deposit. However, your spot won't be reserved until the payment is made. Also, if you're pretty sure on your McCombs decision, don't forget to join the admitted LinkedIn group:

I should have preluded that by saying I don't recommend accepting the offer until you are 100%. There's no added value in rushing it this round because you'll still get access to the sites. However, accepting the offer might distort the AdCom's ability to evaluate R3/waitlisted candidates. I'm not sure if they wait to evaluate their quotas until after an applicant pays his/her deposit.
Side question for rrossjd: It says you applied in R1. Your application status is still "incomplete"?
