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.
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.
