US is roughly 12 hours behind India. You will receive the admission decision the following day.

Best of luck.

Waitlisted. Any suggestions on wait list strategies? Does BU-SOM welcome supplementary material from wait-listed applicants to showcase their competency for the program.

R 2 Applicant from India, waitlisted without interview :(
Can someone please tell me what supplemental information is generally expected during the waitlist?
Also, the other R2 indian applicants who got waitlisted, did you guys give the interview, or WL without it, like me?

Thanks! Considering I was waitlisted without even an interview, I guess chances are slim! :cry:

I was wait-listed with interview. But since they did put you on the WL, with or without interview they see potential in your application.
But no one can really guess what's going on the ad-com's mind.

About supplementary materials i'm not sure how to proceed. These are mostly updates you can send to boost your profile like promotion at work, higher GMAT score etc.
Some schools welcome such initiatives by wait-listed candidates where-as others have a strict policy against it(most of the top ones like wharton etc).
I'm not sure where BU stands on this. I couldn't find any waitlist instructions on their website.

Hi Xinga, I received the package today, so did a friend who also got admitted. We are not that far so I guess you will receive your package very soon.

Another Indian candidate here waitlisted without an interview. Woke up at 4 am on Feb 21st to check my mail. Could not get any sleep after that. :cry:

I have since written to the adcoms asking about supplementary material. No response yet. Will post whatever response I get.

With regard to strengthening my profile, I just got communication from my boss that I might be in line for a promotion. Anybody know what is the best way to communicate a promotion to the Adcoms ?

Overall I think as long as it is not a rejection we are still in with a chance! So stay positive! 8-)

Denny Crane! 8-)
