Hey everyone who got wait listed in R2.. I'm joining your team! Just a question. What notification date is on everyone's letters for when they'll let you know about an update? Mine says 3rd may.

Posted from my mobile device Image



Yes, mine also says May 3rd.

But it seems from past threads though that the update on May 3rd could just consist of
"Congrats! you've now been dwelling, agonizing, and waiting to hear about whether you get to spend 192Gs for <insert time since you started thinking about applying to Wharton and studying for gmat>! You get to keep dwelling, agonizing, and waiting!! And now since you've likely put down a deposit for another school, make that 194Gs!!" <3<3 Wharton.

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.

Hehehe easier said than done! How did you do today? staying in the waitlist?


Had already committed to Fuqua (after a 2nd wharton waitlist), so was only curious about how my waitlist would pan out eventually- ding today. Thrilled about Fuqua nonetheless and their merit scholarship was a nice touch.

They seem to have hired an intern to reshuffle the words from the May 3rd message and resend. hehehe

Hey guys, thanks for seeting up the wharton waitlisted thread, I am also on the waitlist. Lauder Portugues track. Any waitlisted candidates in the Lauder portugues track?
I've heard that the possibilities of being accepted in the waitlist is really really low. Any idea on our odds?
