For those that got wait listed, did your decision letter include the follow recommendations:

-If your GMAT or GRE score is below our average, you may retake the exam and scan and email your unofficial score report. Please ensure that official scores are sent to us promptly.

-You may submit an additional essay that highlights any changes in your professional or personal experience since the time you submitted your application. New information is most effective when it provides a different or updated perspective to the Admissions Committee.

I am just wondering if these are personally tailored to what specific applications were lacking, or if they are a blanket statement to all wait listed.



I got the same message. Looks like MSB has done a good job of structuring the letter in a way that the onus of candidacy evaluation and submission of additional material is on the applicant. Do you have the 3rd April deadline as well?

I know the letter states no feedback is available, but out of curiosity, has anybody tried via email or phone call??

I gave them a call. The receptionist was extremely nice, but didn't tell me anything that I couldn't already find online. She transferred me to a member of the adcom, but again, nothing I couldn't already read online.

Curious to know whether anyone waitlisted (with or without interview) in R1 saw any change in status in R2 (admit/ding)...

I noticed that at least one user has had his R1 Waitlist upgraded to an R2 Admit!

So there WERE movements..

I emailed them after submitting my essay earlier in the week asking if they would like an additional letter of rec. I was told that a recommender COULD send one just through email. All supplemental materials in; now more waiting....

I feel your pain. I got waitlisted in 3 schools and only one seems promising. I may very well be shutout.

Hey guys, after having been on the waitlist since mid-December (gosh, 5.5 months is a long time for them to decide, don't you think? One way or the other!) I decided to put my first deposit at Olin. I'll write to McDonough AdCom today and my name will be off the WL.

Good luck to you guys, I hope it works out for you as it did for me! (I was WL by Olin in March too; got an admit 10 days ago)

Cheers.

I've been waiting for about 3 months. Although I had five offers, Georgetown is still my target. Painful!!
