Howdy folks, long time lurker. I am currently on the WL but received an offer from a firm at a major raise (40%+). This is a major change to my application, and I'm considering whether I should tell Adcom about this offer as a means to reaffirm my dedication to Tuck. I think schools definitely consider 'marketability' and this would strengthen my chances with Tuck. Would this be a mis-step?

You should definitely point this out to them but the tone of your email should be more towards how this reaffirms you as a solid candidate (Recognized as work) versus coming across as bragging and/or give them discomfort that you probably wont join now given the raise.

With deposits due soon, can you guys update your status to matriculating to let those of us on the waitlist know what our chances look like?

So, how many of you admitted fellows forgot to pay your deposits last friday? =)


I'm hoping that there were at least one or two...or 50.

Well, in that case I guess it wasn't very polite of them to call you. The least they could do is walk over to your office and give you a hug!

IN!!!!! Off of the waitlist!

I am speechless right now. I'm from the midwest and sent them an update email about a week after the waitlist decision. January applicant.


Congrats. I know you wanted it badly.

for those who've asked about WL strategy, all I did was send in another essay updating them about my accomplishments since my application both personally and professionally.


Congrats man. Really happy for you.

I would imagine the Waitlist acceptances are not geographically ordered the way Regular decisions can be. It does, however, seem that quite a few of the WL admits from today were reapplicants from 2011-2012.

I'm not trying to figure out the order calls are being made. I'm trying to figure out what are the profiles of people being accepted. If they are accepting people with similar backgound/gmat/citizenship to mine, my chances get diminished. If they have only called american folks, maybe they'll still call some internationals... Of course, I'm just trying to rationalize something that is completely out of my control, so you should not pay too much attention to me... :-D
All I know is I did not get a call, and the decision letter in my application is still the same from March 15. Well, they lost a pretty good opportunity to make my weekend more exciting...

It's official!

Tuckie proud. I withdrew my application from Kellogg and I'm going to forfeit my deposit on McCombs.

As to my profile, I'm pretty sure I don't fit nicely in any sort of demographic. It was the blessing and the curse of my application. 740 GMAT. From the Midwest. Couple of years in technology consulting for a high profile firm. Speak some Japanese. Several years working in the family insurance business overseeing an IT overhaul and building a new sales division to one of the largest in the country for that market segment. Worked the 2012 election cycle. I applied January round and was waitlisted until yesterday. I am not a re-applicant.


Here's hoping calls continue Monday! I think it's awesome that Tuck is getting back to the WL before the May 17 housing/pre-term programs deadline.
