that is a bummer ReddyP :cry:
it really does surprise me the amount of you that were waitlisted ( especially as a % of the users on this forum) and a lot of you with good metrics as well I was really rooting for you guys
I guess people's assumption of the last week notices being mostly waitlist bodes true and that will probably be the case for me for the schools that I have still not heard from as well :oops:

the silver lining though is that you were all waitlisted and not dinged, this could mean a few things, perhaps admissions was overly generous for R1 and on top of that an unexpected amount of the admits went on to make R1 deposits, as such this would cause admissions to perhaps be forced to play it safe and waitlist a larger proportion in R2 than they would have normally, this is all speculation but if this is the case then I'd assume we should see a lot of waitlist admits come April 13 when R2 deposits are due.

Also greenzie I read your other threads inquiring about waitlist > scholarship. While usually yes it is mostly the case that a waitlist candidate would not receive scholarships if admitted I believe that if the scenario I speculated above is the case you guys might have a good chance at still getting $$. If scholarship awardees were to withdraw from admission especially the later it gets in the rounds, I would assume they would rereward it and I think theres a good chance that a lot of you who got waitlisted would be more qualified candidates than those applying last minute in R3 etc. so I'd def stay optimistic about that.

But yea I agree that the limbo of waitlist is the worst because there is no real given timeframe, I wouldn't know anything about that because most of my results were straight dings haha.
ReddyP are you planning on sending out last minute apps to other schools given your negative results thus far? I really would if I were you, given your stellar score I would have to think you would catch traction somewhere and perhaps have just had bad luck/timing with the others.

Have lot of R1 admits confirmed the deposits? On this forum I see only 2 people showing as having submitted the deposit.... Maybe other's have not updated their status. But yeah... waitlist is truly a nerve wrecking period.

Hey Jay2016,
I am not planning to submit any more apps now. Its high time, especially for Intl applicants.
Rotman in R3 is my last and will be for this Fall.
May be my GMAT Score is over shadowed by my below par Work Ex of 3yrs...
And more over with my GMAT score, I can enter the Class of 2021 (entering Fall 2019) as well ;) :-D (Being positive)

ReddyP, I think the combination of Indian, R2 and 3 years experience did not work for you well. And chances become more grim if you are male and are an IT professional. In my opinion, you can get a lot better admits next year in R1 if you gain the right experience and craft your essays carefully.

You may get even a full scholarship from BU as well. Most of the R1 guys from India with high score got that. Somehow I think it is more readily available to Indian IT people if they are applying for MS-MBA. I got a full scholarship with MS-MBA in R1. Also, it gives you a 29 month OPT against the 12 month OPT of normal MBA as per the current rule.

The chances of getting a decent scholarship for a waitlisted candidate is thinner. At least this is what I was told by one of the alumni! I don't know how true is that though! Admit without a decent scholarship is more like a ding for me! :(

I have applied for the MBA-MS (IS) program in R3 and now since the program has been redesigned as MBA-MSDi so I wanted to know if any of the waitlisted candidates had also applied to the same program. I am not sure how different the MSDi program will be from the MSIS program and I would really appreciate any inputs.

Hi (Potential) Incoming admits of Class of 2018!

I just went through this thread. I am surprised to see so many waitlists for International students. I am in BU MS-MBA Class of 2017. It was much easier the last year I think. I know at least 4 people in my batch (3 Indians and 1 American) who got full ride (including me).

I think it is because Questrom is really improving lately. I think we went up 2-3 ranks in US News this year.

If anyone has any questions PM me! I am happy to help. The extra busy curriculum of 2nd semester doesn't give me time to check out threads.

Better yet reach out to me on my e-mail chinmay[dot]d[at]gmail.com

I am also in the leadership position of MS-MBA Association and was helping out new admits about the confusion of MSIS vs MSDI in the admitted students weekend. I have prepared an e-mail to explain the basic differences that I will soon share here. Just a note, it totally qualifies for a STEM degree, and if you are planning to stay in the US after graduation, you should definitely opt for MSDI.

I will also make a post about my views of Questrom, the pros and cons, soon enough, if I manage to get any time from projects, meetings, internship search, and parties at all :)
