Advice on How to Navigate the MBA Waitlist
Despite the name “waitlist,” there are several things you can do besides simply wait for your dream school to call.
Regardless of which school you're waiting for, from a strategic standpoint, sitting in a state of limbo gives you the opportunity to improve your profile or status as a candidate, and such improvements can and should be communicated to the admissions committees. The way you do this is straightforward and is usually as simple as sending a short email with the update (e.g. you were promoted at work, received some kind of community award or position, or got an A in that accounting class you were taking at the local community college).
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER REVISE YOUR APPLICATION WITH ANY INFORMATION WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE ORIGINAL APPLICATION.
For this reason, don’t submit things that you “forgot” to include—this would be considered poor judgment, but rather only new information or changes in your profile which are potentially interesting or important to your candidacy.
MOST SCHOOLS WILL ALSO ACCEPT NEW GMAT OR GRE SCORES FROM AN APPLICANT WHO HAS ELECTED TO REMAIN ACTIVE ON THE WAITLIST.
