FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Waitlist Advice
Getting on the waitlist isn’t the news you wanted. We know. Although it may not seem like it, getting onto the waitlist indicates we saw many strengths in your application. There are silver linings in this cloud! While on the waitlist, consider some ways to prepare yourself for business school or another year of work before you start graduate school.

First, take a deep breath. Do something healthy for yourself. Spend time with family and friends, go for a run, or do whatever you do to decompress. Good decisions about future paths are rarely made when you’re under stress or feel anxious. Release some of those anxieties and put your efforts into building a wise strategy for moving forward.

Second, follow the instructions. Your decision letter lets you know what you need to do next. You’ll need to decide whether or not you want to remain on the waitlist. If you choose to remain on the waitlist, an Admissions Officer will be in touch before March 3, 2014, to let you know if there are any steps you can take to enhance your application.

This is a good time to look back on your application and decide for yourself what your strengths and weaknesses are. An honest assessment of what you could improve is a great opportunity for you to come up a game plan. Maybe you think you could score higher on your GMAT, or you realize your goals or your rationale for your MBA weren’t clear. Perhaps you can take on new challenges or stretch yourself more at work or in your community life. That insight can help you take proactive steps now, without waiting for feedback from us.

Third, trust the process. We know being in limbo is challenging. We work hard to make the waitlist process as informative and clear as possible. If we need something from you, we will let you know. Update us with important information such as promotions or new test scores. There’s no need to make surprise visits to campus or stay in constant contact. Keep in mind how you handle yourself on the waitlist also gives us an idea of how you will handle yourself as a student. You can help your candidacy by maintaining your professionalism and checking in every once in a while.
ForumBlogs - GMAT Club’s latest feature blends timely Blog entries with forum discussions. Now GMAT Club Forums incorporate all relevant information from Student, Admissions blogs, Twitter, and other sources in one place. You no longer have to check and follow dozens of blogs, just subscribe to the relevant topics and forums on GMAT club or follow the posters and you will get email notifications when something new is posted.

WAITLIST EXPERIENCES

Hi all - Best of luck with the WL process. As a current Tuckie who came off the WL, I know your pain. It's definitely not a fun wait. I'm sure you have or are going to scour past WL Tuck threads - and the plentiful advice re: 'How to get off the WL' on a ton of different websites, so I thought I might sum up some general thoughts/advice:

1. Don't feel the need to contact AdCom unless there is a major event that'll add immensely to your candidacy. Between my WL e-mail and the acceptance call, the only action I took was to confirm that I wanted to remain on the WL. There's more likely downside rather than upside if you pester AdCom regarding your status, feedback, and so on. Don't worry if AdCom is radio silent, they haven't just forgotten about you. And even if they say feedback will be given in Feb, don't be surprised if it happens later. At most, 1

2. Most people get off the WL around May onwards. I may have been one of the few exceptions that found out earlier (I applied EA and got an acceptance the day before January Round calls went out in March) and I think the latest I heard was in July (August is a major stretch). Ding letters will be sent on an ongoing basis. Eventually there'll be a "reduced waitlist" but in the end, you should get official notification of accept or ding.

3. Don't be surprised if you get feedback that amounts to "There's nothing really that you can change." Why does this happen? Basically, you're potentially good enough to be accepted / fit Tuck's profile. However, it's likely that there are admits who have a very similar profile to you but unfortunately are just a tad better. There's nothing you can really do because, unless those kind of people accept elsewhere, you're unlikely to get off the WL. The whole admissions process is crafting a class that represents a broad range of personal and professional backgrounds, experiences, and career interests. For that reason, it's not as if Tuck has a ranked WL. If you do get more pointed feedback from WL, it's likely that you could do something, like raise your GMAT score, to actually boost your profile. Specifically in the case of GMAT, b-schools are graded or looked at based on a range of criteria, one often being average GMAT score - if yours is too low, you're bringing down the average and potentially ranking of Tuck. I think you're much more likely to get more in depth feedback once you request feedback post-ding.

Just my two cents / opinion (who REALLY knows what goes on in the minds of AdCom, after all...).

After reading the above, I'm not sure if it'll make you more informed, depressed, or a combination thereof. Stay strong!

WL strategy: Tuck offered feedback on waitlisted applications later (late March); feedback is often something along the lines of greater work experience, higher GMAT, more involvement, etc. My feedback was that there was no particular element holding my application, but they needed more time (which can be frustrating to hear!). I thanked them very much and included a brief paragraph explaining why Tuck was the best school for me.

Later, I learned that applications were very high in the early round and admissions was worried about a corresponding spike in yield so they used the waitlist to see how the rest of the applicant pool looked and where their yield went.

Not really, but if you decide in the end to attend another school regardless of the WL final decision you should let Tuck know so they stop considering you.

I'm not sure if you can answer this question, but here it is regardless: if there's something to add to my application, should I wait until the admission committee gets back at me or should I send it as soon as possible?


Can't really answer your question on timing, but in general I'd recommend waiting until you have something substantial to give to AdCom - whenever that is. I think this is somewhere in Dawna's advice/blog, but you should reflect on your own application and think about the weak points. If it's test scores, take the GMAT now (even if AdCom hasn't given you feedback now). It may be harder to identify things in your overall application along the lines of leadership for MBA/Tuck story. But if you feel that there are developments since you've submitted your application that balance out weaknesses, then sure, go ahead and contact AdCom. But again, be mindful of the quality and quantity of those touch points.

End of the day, before you submit anything to AdCom, just really think if what you're submitting is actually adding something substantial to your overall application that will really give AdCom a reason to think of converting you to an admit. As an example, one may think that a job promotion is a good item to update AdCom about - but if you're still doing the same work with relatively the same level of leadership and responsibility, then (in my opinion) that promotion isn't really something AdCom would see and thus think better of one's application.

Last note, be mindful of the overall calendar. This goes back to my comment about quantity/quality of touch points, but AdCom is amazingly busy. Imagine, in January, they're still going through the November round applications. January round applications just wrapped up, so those get thrown into the bunch. And there's still a ton of people interviewing. So if you're contacting them about WL / your application, especially before they've gotten back to you with anything re: feedback or whatnot, you should have a really good reason behind contacting them.

Other Notable - I think the difference for me was making an effort to get to know the school and students. Connecting with students with a similar profile made me able to write essays that really spoke about why I would benefit from Tuck and how I could contribute (At least this is my take away). Also tons of constant self reflection on my goals, tons of edits on the essays, and hours of practice on the interviews allowed my strengths come through
