Hi All - Has anyone been admitted from the wait list? Just curious if there is any activity on that front.


I'd imagine they'll start to trickle in closer to the Rd 2 decision deadline.

Hey Guys!!

Do you think Georgetown might offer scholarship to people who get an admit after being put on a waitlist in R1 [or any round for that matter]?

Cheers....

^ I'm sure it's possible but depends largely on the applicant pool for R2/3 and the number of people that decide to attend...

Have you guys sent in your WL updates?
It is rare for schools to offer scholarships to WLers, but impossible is nothing.
Would you attend without a scholarship or would you prefer your Singapore school?

I don't think I will attend without a scholarship... SP Jain Global MBA (Singapore/Dubai) is a 1 year course and is a lot cheaper...

Is it normal that my status still has not changed? Anyone else in the same boat? It's been exactly 6 weeks...

Have you received the interview invite, or not yet?

I think its an ongoing process with McDonough. There's still about a month between now and the decision date, and given that their interviews are so short, I don't see it being a problem for them to schedule multiple interviews between now and March 15.

Also, I don't think the statuses really change after it gets to Under Review in the Application Status section. In fact, I am pretty sure it doesn't until the decisions are released. And as long as all your materials have been submitted it changes to and remains as Under Review I believe.

I have not received an invite and it still only says: Submission Status: Submitted.

I don't have my hopes up, but may shoot them an e-mail to confirm they have at least received all the necessary info.

So you see where it says Application for Admission right above Submission Status: Submitted? Click there, and then itll take you to a page where theres a blue panel on the left hand side and theres a link toward the top, all in caps, that says Application Status. Maybe you already know this and Im being repetitive, but clicking on that status link will show you whether you are missing materials, or if your app is under officially review.

And yes, definitely email your Admissions Manager or the Georgetown MBA email address. Kendra at the front desk is super super helpful and sweet, and responds pretty quickly.

I also wouldn't rely too heavily on the status written on your application page. I received an interview invite 1/13 and my status is still "submitted". Keep your hopes up! There's still plenty of time to receive an invitation! :)

Thanks Amir. If admitted, my GMAT would be among the lowest 10% of the class

Congrats...and don't feel nervous...my G-Town interview wasn't stressful at all. They actually did a great job of selling me on the program and I came away from it feeling pretty good.

Good luck!

I received an invite today for the Evening Program (applied R1 for MBA-EP), so I'm humbled to get the opportunity.

For guys who may still be waiting for interviews whether it's for FT R2, or for MBA EP R1, your application status will not change on the application site. You will get an email from G-Town's website.

Hope everyone can get in!
