FYI - those who received calls. No mention of any fellowship $ on the phone or in my initial admit email. But in my decision letter I did receive some $$ so check there for fellowship information!


Same here, a pleasant surprise...

Waitlisted in Cali. There is no real detail in the letter. I'm feeling deflated and from my research Wharton says "do not contact us". Does anyone know how many people get off the waitlist each year? Wharton is my #1.


I got waitlist too from east coast! Not really sure what are the next steps or what to do...the email does not explicitly say do not contact us......Any suggestions ??

Dumb question but anyone know who to talk to about scholarship money? I'm guessing it'd be financial aid but I wasn't sure if the adcomm played a role in that. I've never inquired about fellowship funding and had the conversation be successful, so if anyone has any tips in that area for Wharton that'd be great!

The website for Wharton does say that you should not send any materials for wait list.

Congratulations to all the admits!

Waitlisted :cry: other than the generic letter on the application portal, I have not received any further communication from Wharton. The letter also doesn't indicate if there would be any. The Wharton MBA admissions website does indicate that they do not want candidates to submit additional materials. I am an international applicant (India).

1) Will Wharton send waitlisted candidates any follow-up letters now?
2) When is tuition deposit due for R2 admitted candidates? I am assuming the week following that and 6 May (R3 decision day) are possible days for some movement on waitlist. I know there is a summer waitlist too, but that would be stretching my hope too far out.
3) Have you guys heard of international applicants being admitted after being waitlisted in R2? Any indication on overall % changes from waitlisted to admittedfor wharton?
4) To waitlisted candidates - should we just sit tight and wait or do something to reiterate our love for the school?

sorry - to clarify - it was for 130K+ budget.. which is why i was concerned.. i thought the cost was around 97K per year, but if you can borrow up to 130K+ - does that mean they raised the cost estimate by that much?

Are u in for Lauder or the normal MBA? The link they provided said 99k for normal and ard 130k for Lauder. so yeah, 2k increased compared to the 97k published earlier

Got Waitlisted too...

I did some research and concluded that, at least for Wharton, it is better to be quiet and wait than to annoy anyone at the adcom.

As for stats, I heard (just heard, no evidence) that about 10% get in from WL. Wait and see... That's the best strategy.

I was waitlisted with R1 and eventually dinged but I will try to answer what I can-
1) Yes, you will most likely get an email on friday and then monthly updates on 2nd or 3rd friday (cant remember which it was) each month. Having said that, the updates are pretty generic and do not tell you anything you don't already know.
2) Probably some admit can clarify this
3) I have not. The update email in feb (after R1 deposit deadline) mentioned that they had made offers to a "couple" of waitlisters. The exact text of that email is pasted by someone on the waitlist thread.
4) The email says u can only submit revised gmat, additional coursework or change in job. So if you think one of these might have been a potential weakness in your application, it may be a good way to show commitment.
Hope this helps and good luck...
