Hi. International candidate (from India) here. I interviewed on 5th Jan, and the portal now says that I am waitlisted. But I haven't received any official mail from the school.
Can anyone please let me know my chances of converting this waitlist to an admit? How long before I will know my final status?
Also, other than a mail expressing my interest for the program, are there any other things that I can do to improve my chances?
(On a side note, I noticed that in last year's Fisher thread, there were quite a few students who converted their waitlist to an admit - mostly around March to May. Can any of these students please share their thoughts?)
Any inputs will be very useful.
Thanks in advance.

I was waitlisted without an email a while back, so this seems to be par for the course. For what it's worth, I did receive an email after 5-6 weeks on the waitlist stating that I would be reevaluated in another 5-6 weeks so I guess keep an eye out for that.

March to May makes the most sense for admissions chances as people have generally made up their mind for most application rounds, and schools are gaining a firm idea of their yield.

Hi all,

I have an on-site interview with Fisher next week and I just received an itinerary about my visit.
Then I realized I have two interviews scheduled.
[11:15 am - Interview with Admissions Staff Member
1:00 pm - Career Management Interview]
Is anyone familiar with this?

Hi everyone, I received an admit from Fisher a few days back and I'm all set to enroll.
Wanted to ask, is there any whatsapp group of the admitted students?
Thank you!

Hello all,
I just did my two interviews with Adcom and career management at Fisher.

The interview was a blind interview, and career management team did not have my resume handy so make sure you bring an extra copy of your resume!
The questions were pretty simple and straight. And the interviewers do take notes as you answer.
1. Walk me through your resume
2. Why MBA?
3. Why Fisher? (Very important! -- do your research.)
4. Immediate goal
5. Leadership style
6. Hobby/out of work activity (Mine is very related to my long-term goal, so I linked them together when I answered.)
7. Questions to Adcom
I'm sure there were more questions.. about 1-2 more that I don't remember. But surely those were basic questions too.
The interview lasted about 40 minutes although the Adcom stated that it would be about 25-30 minutes in the beginning.

With career management team, the questions were only about my experience and career goals.
The interviewer did ask me about my goals in detail; position, industry, years expected and specific plan (because my long-term goal is to be an entrepreneur) etc.
It was more like a career service rather than an interview. He told me how Fisher helps students reach their goals, had Q&A session and that was pretty much it.
The second interview lasted about 25 minutes.

I hope this helps future applicants. Good luck everyone!
