Waitlisted at Tepper!! [#permalink] New post 20 Dec 2006, 17:17
And all these days of waiting and waiting ends up finally in a waitlist :(

But i'm happy that I didnt get dinged!! clearly the rise in app volume not doing any good to most of us here and Tepper was no exception. Infact, they have mentioned this in my letter.

And i know what forced my apps into waitlist. My age and work exp for sure. At 22 yrs and 1 yr of WE in IT (and in INDIA!!), it is soooo difficult to get into managerial roles and get lots of leadership under your belt. Yet, i managed to get some, got an excellent reco from my Project leader and it seems it is not quite enough.

Ok, guys, any ideas to bolster my apps!! guess some of u there in my boat, so you can suggest some stuff..

and the wait continues..... :(

Frankly, a waitlist with 1Y exp in India IT is unbelievable. You should be really proud of this. I know that getting halfway to the finish line doesn't get you there, but I'd venture this bodes well for your other applications.

Seriously. You should be proud.

Thanks rhyme,

I guess tats coz of my acads in engineering( univ gold medalist), gmat of 730, and the one year solid WE wherein i made nice impact on my project by gettin a cost cutting of some 90000$, also led a team of guys during our training period and got some awards. Coupled to that was the brand 'TATA'. :)

Loads of extra-curriculars in music and sports and some decent community service of late in college and company.

Networked with current students, initiated my interview with the admissions director on an mba tour, established contact with one prof( tried 5,hehe)

And it ends up in a wait-list :( . But i'm happy, they've given me a chance to fight. Tepper's no:1 in operations and I dont want to lose it that easily. Long way to the finish but lets see. I already started working to boost my chances since i was preparing myself for such a decision. So, gotta follow them up soon and get my neck into R2.

cheers
