The WL process is really torturing, I wish I could hear anything before the beginning of March.
So I won't have to pay for Kellogg to save a seat!

There's no update from Wharton, right?

So I just noticed that March 30th is a Saturday, the 29th is Good Friday. Looks like Rnd 2 decisions come out on Tuesday March 26th. I'm guessing that is when we'll hear our next bit of news...

Curious to hear how the WL applicants thought they did on their interview? Wanted to see how much you think it counts in the admission process. I had mine today and it didn't go as well as I had hoped, so I am quite nervous.

I thought I did really well on the TBD, although I also felt like it was really hard to differentiate people using the TBD, everyone came across as strong in my group. Although one uncertainty was that I didn't agree with the direction we decided to go so I sort of ended up being the
devil's advocate in a way, not sure if that came across as me not being a team player. But I thought that everything I said was valid and certainly tried to say it while still supporting what we were doing. My one-on-one, however, I thought was TERRIBLE. I really wasn't expecting it to be so unstructured so I sort of blabbed and probably made no sense. Certainly did not do anything to help myself there. Left the experience feeling good about the TBD, but like I blew it since the one-on-one was so bad.

If it is the TBD you are nervous about, I wouldn't be, I really don't see how they can differentiate people based on that, I more think it's to weed out people who act like jerks, don't have strong english skills, or are too shy to speak.

Where have you decided to go instead? Great news for the rest of us, and thank you for not holding the spot any longer.

So i visited campus recently. It was great, I am so in love with that school! On a strange note, the admin and I bonded over my jacket and my bag.. and so I was like "Candidly, speaking, do i get a gold star for visiting" to which she joked and then she was like, "Send them an email letting them know you are still interested etc."

I haven't done anything so far, her official title (as per linked in) is MBA Program Coordinator. So now.. should I or shouldn't i send an email? I don't really have an update, other than when i see my Boss' face all I can think of saying is "F U IM QUITTING SOON!!!" So... should I or shouldn't i?


i feel like, at this point, they either know or they don't. I think it's a given that you would be still interested in Wharton and that it remains one of your top choices. Since they specifically asked not to send supplemental information, they might get irritated that you are blowing up their inbox to tell them you visited the campus last week. The person you talked to doesn't have any bearing or insight on the waitlist process anyway, which from what I can tell is done by the two people who keep emailing us each month.

High risk, low reward. You don't want them thinking you are some annoying and high strung type A person.

They ask that waitlisted students not submit additional materials, by they probably mean extra essays, references, etc. However it's ok to give them an update on your job situation or a new GMAT score or other change in circumstance. They also seem to welcome questions.

So I guess you can contact them if you have some update other than just that you visited the school and loved it and are stil interested.

Yes. Don't remember what was there before when I first opened my application, but my waitlist letter isn't anywhere to be found.
