Hello people in the purgatory! Did you apply to other schools in R2 or are focusing 100% on Booth's R1 waitlist? Although I am looking forward towards getting accepted from Booth's WL, I applied to Kellogg, MIT and LBS on R2.

Also did anyone already send the video or is everybody waiting since the deadline is in Feb.?

Cheers, and good luck to us all.

Sounds awfully quiet in here despite what looks like a pretty substantial waitlist. Have a question each for my fellow waitlisted lurkers and resident gmatclub experts:

1) I know admissions says it is optional, but is anyone on the waitlist planning not to do the video?
2) Any experts who know what the stats advise? More specifically, any evidence of people getting admitted from the waitlist without doing the video in years past?

Personally, I am leaning towards a short essay and an additional recommendation but skipping the video. Work has been crazy and I feel like the time I will be able to put into it simply won't make for a great product.

I submitted my video, put together an update letter that included a professional update and why Booth essay. Also had two friends (1 alumni, 1 current student) submit letters of support. I have my fingers crossed. I wish we didn't have to wait another 6 weeks.

Hey all - a little late to this forum...I submitted a video, an update letter, and 2 letters of support from current colleagues. I hope this gets me the nod into Booth! Good luck to all; March 26th will not come fast enough.

Does anyone have any insight into what our odds are? I've heard anecdotally that Booth puts a lot of people on the waitlist in Round 1 and a good number get in later.

My nightmare scenario is getting another waitlist notification.

Hey everyone

I've never posted on one of these things. Hardly monitor them actually. Until it's about decision day. I've never had anything meaningful to contribute until today. So I thought I'd share my situation and pay it forward.

I applied Round 1 to Kellogg and Booth. Got waitlisted at both.
As most of you know today is Kellogg's decision day, obviously you know tomorrow's is Booth's. I just got a call from a Chicago number and thought it'd be Kellogg actually. But as it turns out, it was someone from Booth congratulating me for getting in. They said they like to give people a call the day before.
I saw similar things on the Kellogg waitlist thread, that some people were getting calls Monday or Tuesday. So it looks like this is a similar situation.

Because I've seen people follow up to posts like these with questions about what the person did since being waitlisted, I'll briefly share what I've done. It's pretty basic. I submitted a 1:03 video of me sitting in front of my computer camera and talking a little about my recent promotion as well as my continued interest in the school. The other thing that happened between then and now was a Booth MBA from my firm, who I work with a little but not a lot, sent an email to the admissions team, without me asking (he also sent one between Round 1 application deadline and decision, which I requested from him), I don't even know what he put in it. I honestly don't even have confirmation they ever got it. But I'll assume it helped somewhat. But at no time did I personally reach out to the school and ask for feedback or anything, and never did they ever call me until today. I think the lesson here is not to try and read any tea leaves. Everyone's situation is different.

That's my story. Very relieved of course.

Good luck to you all.
