I've heard it's sometimes acceptable to ask for feedback about your application from the adcom - anyone going to try it?

Some schools offer this, but I haven't heard of GSB honoring this request (not that it hasn't happened, though.)
I think I would recommend that you have someone review your application materials (like a ding analysis - but instead, a WL analysis - and then put together a strategy to get off the WL - a difficult but not impossible feat. If possible, take actions to remedy weaknesses and then send an update letter. Best to have a strong update letter or it will be seen as you pestering. For example, if you have a less than competitive quant score, retake the GMAT, or if it makes more sense, take the GRE. Or, do MBA Math, where your transcripts are sent directly to the school. If it isn't so obvious a situation, have a consultant such as myself review your application for weaknesses. Trace them, face them and erase them.

Anyone know acceptance rate for waitlisted applicants with interview?

Also i have a low GMAT score. Do you think retaking the GMAT would help my chances of getting off the waiting list? Also when should I typically schedule the GMAT? When would be a good time to let the adcom know about the score change and also have enough time for preparation?

How to Get Off the MBA Waitlist - YouTube Live by GMAT Club and Personal MBA Coach.



Dear Waitlisted Applicants,
You put a lot of time and effort into your MBA applications and, after months of hard work, you’re…waiting. It’s ok to scream into a pillow or go to town on a punching bag. It’s frustrating! But after you do, sign up for this youtube live session hosted by Scott Edinburgh, Founder of Personal MBA Coach. He'll talk about the process, the stats, do's and don'ts, and what has worked for his clients in the past. He'll wrap everything up with a live Q&A session. You don't want to miss this!


About Scott Edinburgh

A Wharton MBA graduate with a BS from MIT, Scott has been an MBA admissions consultant for eight years and has helped hundreds of applicants around the world get into top MBA programs. Besides perfecting the MBA admissions process and making dreams come true for applicants from Tokyo to San Francisco and everywhere in between, he has also worked across consulting, financial services and strategy & corporate development roles before becoming a Full-Time admissions consultant. He ran Global Strategy / Corporate Development as a Director of a 700 person leading independent publishing company. He also worked for InterContinental Hotels Group in Global Strategy, as well as JP Morgan and Deloitte Consulting in Mergers & Acquisitions. His experience in many of the jobs applicants have today or hope to obtain post-MBA helps him advise them on the best ways to not only get into their top choice schools, but position themselves for their dream jobs.

As an individual MBA admissions consultant, he takes the time to get to know every client personally as they go through the journey together. This starts with a deep analysis into applicant's background, an identification of his/her objectives and a thorough development of personal story. His no BS approach ensures that nothing falls through the cracks and his feedback is honest, non-sugar coated and immediate. He push his clients very hard and the work pays off. 96% of his clients got into one of their top two or three schools. He works with applicants applying to full-time MBA programs as well as Executive and part-time MBA programs.

Should we all just safely assume that the acceptance cycle for waitlists is over? between how many of you accepted the waitlist offer?

I accepted my spot on the WL as well. It will be difficult to stay on if it goes into July or August though...let's hope we shine after R3.

Any R2 people who were waitlisted get an email survey? I submitted and got no email confirmation.... when I click the survey link again, it shows up fresh to be filled out. Has that happened to anyone else?
