It's already 8pm here in my city. I hope by this time tomorrow I'll be having a celebratory beer!!
People in this thread are quiet though... Folks have been freaking out since Monday on the Ross' 13 thread...
Good luck to everyone tomorrow and Friday, maybe we'll all be together in April for the ASW!!

Best,

I didn't get any scholarship info, so don't know if I received one. I also didn't ask about other calls, etc.

Well let's hope for the best. 63 mins left.

I think they had an unexpectedly high yield during EA/RD1 and only have few spots to give out.

You have no idea, really. It's all guesswork.

WL as well... They also mentioned offering me feedback if I want to, but I guess they offer that to all waitlisters, right?
Tuck was the school I fell in love with from the moment I started my research, almost a year ago, so I'm having a tough time dealing with it. I know that it's not over yet, but chances are slim at this point, so they are probably just delaying bad news...

Anyway, congratulations to all admitted friends from GC, thank you for putting up with me freaking out all day, and best of luck to us waitlisted and to dinged folks, I hope we all achieve our goals in one way or another.

Best,

bizwiz



I got WL from tuck - they did not offer feedback.
can you paste your letter?


It's not on the letter. I sent the email to confirm I wanted to remain on the WL, and they send an automatic response saying, among other things, the following:

If you have decided to remain an active candidate on the waitlist you may request feedback. We will provide written feedback as soon as we are able.

Have you sent the email confirming your spot on the waitlist?

Best,

bizwiz


Just sent in my confirmation and received that auto response as well. The stress continues. Congrats to everyone who received calls today!

I saw the decision notice page starting off with "Congratulations!" and I just cried... :cry:


I checked my cell phone and there was a call from a private number I missed during the night (or morning EST).

Thanks for sharing and congrats! A very special moment, indeed, especially after completing more than 10 applications! That's a lot, Seina! You have to start thinking about gifts for your recommenders :lol: .

Anyone on the list was offered a feedback session last year after a ding? I was offered one this year, but not sure if its going how helpful will it be for next year or if it will increase my chances?

I got the call on Friday at 4:00PM EST. The lady was really kind and seemed excited to informed me about my admission as well as about my scholarship. I was shocked, I didn't expect the YES (not to talk about the scholarship). Tuck was the only top school I applied, it was the only place that I fell I fit, probably that helped to have an offer for admission.

FYI my GMAT is 680, I'm an international applicant with international experience (5 years). I studied a couple of weeks for the GMAT (lets say 4 weeks or so) but I worked my ass off with the essays. My advise is that you have to have a good story and you have to market it, the GMAT is ok but it can be dangerous with a high score.

Looking forward to meeting you at Tuck!

I'll be happy to response anyone who needs some advise.

PS: I don't remember my password so I had to create a new profile.

I was waitlisted last year, and released from the waitlist very late. Thankfully, I was offered feedback, and took it. The AdCom member did not beat abou the bush and was very clear about what Tuck loved about my app, and what they felt I could improve a bit on. I acted on that feedback, ironed out kinks in my profile, and reapplied this year - and was accepted.

I would recommend taking the feedback. It would take no more than 15 minutes of your time, has virtually no downside, and the upside is too awesome to pass up on!

Cheers,
MBAWanderlust
