This really doesn't bode too well for me because the only feedback I received from Tuck was that I needed a higher GMAT. I scored 680 with a 64% Q / 90% V split and Tuck asked for a much higher score (40+ pts). I've been studying my brains out but knowing that this may quite possibly be the most important test of my life is really not helping the situation.

Congrats to those who have made it. Hopefully if a miracle happens I will be joining you!

As far as trying to find a pattern for who they are admitting off the waitlist, the common theme seems to be a big GMAT. Of those who have their GMAT scores visible, it seems like all had GMAT scores above Tuck's average.

Definitely agree. It seems they want to significantly increase their average GMAT figure. Given the size of the class, it makes sense.
What is surprising however is that they didn't wait for the end of last round to take people in from the WL. Surprising. Nothing can be predicted).

Hnguyen -- did they specifically ask for a 40pt increase? I'm in the same boat as you where they suggested there is room for improvement in my GMAT but I wasn't given any specifics as to how much (I have a 710 in my only attempt at taking it). I've been studying too but again not sure where I will end up as I've been scoring 700-730 on my practices. I do agree though that it seems all those accepted off WL have 730+ scores so far so it seems this retake will be huge in terms of bumping up our chances of getting in off the WL.

Yield must have been lower than expected through the first three rounds and/or the April applicant pool is small. Looks like they want to fill more seats before rendering decisions for the April Round on May 24. This isn't even accounting for the deposits that'll be cancelled during the summer melt.

Could you explain that a little further for this not so wise and non-native English speaker? Not really sure what you mean

Sure - not everyone who puts down a deposit ultimately matriculates. This could be because they couldn't decide between two schools and put down deposits at both deadlines, but will have to sooner or later cancel one. Another scenario is someone who put down a deposit to reserve a seat at one school, but after getting the call from another schools WL, they cancel their enrollment in favor of the other offer.

It's a bit of a domino effect that usually happens in the summer. I should have put "summer melt" in quotes

One of the waitlist-accepts said that his/her deposit was due the 13th, and another said the 14th. I would think that Tuck would turn around and offer those passed-up spots right away? kschmidt - when was your deposit due?

My deposit was due May 13, but I paid up almost immediately.

There were a few folks on GMAT club who were weighing their options, so we can only hope...
