Is the wait list cleared on an on-going basis or one time after R2 results?

It seems like a on-going base, some will get off after R2, some will continue to be on the list.

I read last year's thread - why do think that international students have less chance to be admitted from the waitlist?

One men mentioned in the thread. I think the biggest problem is that many international students won't have enough time to get a visa if we can't get admitted in R2.

When my interviewer applied a couple of years ago he applied in R2, waitlisted, and admitted in R3. He said that he had more than enough time to take care of the visa arrangements.
He even said that he had some time to travel a bit before classes began.

According to last year's Booth WL thread, it seems that Booth admits from the WL more than other schools. Although that's just pure, hopeful speculation on my part...

booth-2012-calling-all-waitlist-applicants-124767.html

Yes Booth does admit more from WL than other schools, but Booth also tends to have a lot more candidates on the WL than other schools. The chances of getting an admit from wl vary from 10% to 30% depending on the acceptance rate of admitted candidates (got the numbers from the last year wl thread). The adcom have some rough yield numbers in their mind and accordingly rollout invites. Also about 20% of the Booth class is made up of students who were on wl at some point of their application (got this data from the previous year thread and from a chat transcript with Booth adcom).. The soonest we will hear from the adcom on our candidacy is on R2 decision date. On this date some of us will be accepted, some dinged and a lot of us will be put back on WL. We can theoretically be on the Booth WL till the orientation day for Fall 2013, so we have to be very patient throughout the process.

Welcome to the Booth WL

Hi,
Does anyone had any news regarding the opening of the waitlist?
I was supposed to open today but I didn't receive any emails or saw any updates on the status page of my application. Is everyone in the same situation??

Got an email on the waitlist just now. Looks like the waitlist enrollment form is up now.

The email I received says under the "Updates, Materials, and Video" section, "We welcome any relevant updates from waitlisted candidates, and will review these updates when evaluating your file during Round 3". I think it should say Round 2 not Round 3. Correct?
