Check the following thread. You will see who were waitlisted in R1 and also a few resources from the previous years waitlisted applicants on how to deal with the waitlist.

the school has an FAQ for this. It is pretty similar to the kenan-flagler waitlist FAQ, so I would guess it is the same for many schools.

Under their things you can do, I think the biggest impact would be retaking the GMAT -- obviously difficult in such a short timespan, but if you are planning to retake it for next year, I would start now and take it in 3 months. If you get a substantially higher score, you will have it for next year's apps and it could help bump you off the WL. That said, if you're not dead set on attending for 2021, it may make more sense to wait until R1 next year to put together a solid app and shoot for scholarship money if you get a substantially higher score. with a 720 it will be very difficult to improve, but it's possible.

Additionally, if you are dead set on tepper (it looks to be the one school you applied to), you can take a week or two to write a letter of continued interest to the adcom emphasizing anything that has changed since your app went in, how much you enjoyed meeting the students, how you feel like it's a great fit, and how much you really want to attend. Keep it under the length of an optional essay (obviously) but try to convey your genuine interest in the program. it may also help to give them a call and reiterate that you're very interested in attending if a spot opens up.

disclaimer: i'm not an admissions consultant. this is just what I would have done if chapel hill were my #1. I think i was waitlisted because they could tell i was more interested in tepper/data analytics focus in an mba program and they want to boost their matriculation stats.

Hi,

I have a quick question. Is Tepper's priority waitlist a binding? The reason I ask this is because I have got an admit from another school with scholarship, but Tepper is my first choice. So in case of an admit without a scholarship from Tepper, can I request for a scholarship reconsideration, or does it not work that way?

I'm in the same boat. I do not believe it is. On the waitlist FAQ page it gives the "other school accepted me" case and they basically say you can pay the other school's deposit and see what happens.

Was just admitted with 10K. I'm beside myself. I called admissions to make sure it wasn't a mistake.

Well, one of my applicants did. She managed quite a hefty scholarship from them.
