Guys, I have a question: Do we directly hear from the AdCom on R2 decision day in March?
Or can it be any time between now and then?

Good luck to everyone! :)

Thanks kaustubhkul for setting up this thread.
I expect an interview call, since I have been waitlisted without an interview.

I would like to hear from other waitlisted applicants, especially whether anybody has received positive news :)

Good luck all!

Good luck, man! I was waitlisted with an interview - so let's hope January-February give us all some good news. ;)
I'm not sure what to expect, actually. They had asked for an additional "waitlist" essay, right? I had only minor updates (some 3-4) since October, so I just wrote them.

Let's see what happens...

@kaustubhkul

Let's hope we are classmates soon ;)

Pretty much same with me on the update front. I am really interested in their Ecommerce course, so underlined it in the essay.
Good luck!

Nope; nothing! I'm not even sure if we're supposed to hear from them directly on 20th March (R2 decision day) or any time before...

Well. I interviewed in R1 and was later waitlisted, and got an update last night that I have again been placed on the waitlist.

Waitlisted with interview. My record so far is Ding, Waitlist, Waitlist, and pending. Pending is McCombs which has the highest rating of all schools. So I'm not holding my breath.

I'm with you. I have gotten two waitlists with McCombs to go. Kellogg is essentially a ding because they didnt interview me. Just waiting on the final notification. It's getting tougher and tougher to stay optimistic.

Did any R1 wait list candidate have any update on the status? I wish people were more active here esp during decisions :)

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.
