Hi everyone,

FYI, just got the call approx. half an hour ago at about 8.45 Chicago time.
I don't really remember the name of the lady who called me.
You know. when u see a call coming from Chicago from an unknown number, your brain is just focused on what comes next. lol.

Good luck to everyone. :)


Congrats! Did you receive a marketing email from Booth today titled "The New Marketing Analytics Concentration"?


I believe everyone has got that email.

Got the call at 3:08 PM CST. Totally shocked as I had expected a ding considering no call all day. Just super stoked.

Good luck to all!

Is that it? Is there any credence to other posters' rumors that the admissions office will release more decisions tomorrow?

I doubt it. I think its wishful thinking on the most part. Also the admissions office cannot really say they're done making calls because surely there might be a trickle left to take care of. But nothing for the majority of the rest of us.

True. Today will mostly be waitlist decisions and dings.

Common occurrence at Booth to put international applicants on waitlist, especially those whose profiles are strong enough for many other schools.

Funny that you said this. The letter from Booth for next steps also hint that they want wait-listers to prove genuine interest in the school. I definitely agree that's a weakness in my profile.

On what do you base this thought? I highly doubt that a school waitlists applications it perceives strong enough to get into other stronger schools. If the application is strong and the school wants the candidate, it will offer scholarships. IMO, waitlist only means some combo of they were running short on space + they expect room to free up as other schools roll out decisions. It probably also means that they liked you but they liked someone else more.

Basically, it means that you are too good to be rejected yet not good enough to be admitted. IMO, though I understand the need for school to create waitlist so that in case they font have sufficient candidate to enroll, they can draw in the waitlist, I prefer an outright rejection or acceptance. Main reason is that for international applicant like me, the announcement for waitlist is end May which is too late for anything, from visa to work arrangement. In addition, assuming that I have other schools' offers and accepted them, now, I got accepted from waitlist, to enroll in Booth, I will need to start the whole visa process again... and frankly speaking US visa process doesnt get any easier recently haha

Congrats to all admits again! Here is R2 admission summary based on stats submitted on Decision Tracker.
  • Avg GMAT score and GMAT range of admits is 751 (720 - 770) whereas that of overall R2 application pool is 733 (650 - 770).
  • 28 of 181 applicants have been admitted so far, with acceptance rate of 15%. This R2 acceptance rate is very low compared to last 3 years average acceptance rate of 24%, so either many admitted users are yet to report on forum or the acceptance rate has fallen this year.


Good luck to all applicants who are on the waitlist. We look forward to admits/waitlists joining us in their respective threads.
