Well I applied R1 and was waitlisted.

Today I was waitlisted again. This is nervewracking!

I guess if I do get in I'm probably not getting any $. :(

Everyone .... have some thoughts on this?

How does the Georgetown Waitlist work? Will they be giving the next decision on May 14 or anytime before that when they review the application? Just trying to see if it helps to provide info asap?

Anyone on this thread got themselves off the waiting list?

Hoping4best, Georgetown has a relatively low matriculation rate since it tends to be a back-up school for applicants to the top 10 programs. Therefore, your chances of getting off the waitlist are pretty good so long as you remain diligent.

I was actually waitlisted last year and was finally admitted at the end of June 09, but had to decline for personal reasons. That in mind, getting off the waitlist requires diligence. Few things to keep in mind:
- Keep the adcom updated on your activities
- Make a solid effort to address any shortcomings on your application (retake GMAT if that's weak, sign up for an evening accounting class if your GPA is low, if you're short on meaningful work experience try to get another recommendation from someone who might offer a different perspective like a professor, etc.)
- If it's your top choice, make that clear, because if a spot opens up they'll most turn to someone on the list who's ready and willing to go. Adcom members are piss tired by this point and will have much lower tolerance for indecision.
- Go on a school visit and meet some students. Let the adcom know you're coming, and they may be receptive to an interview.
- Especially for Georgetown, move quickly on all of this. They understand their position in the pantheon of MBA programs, so they often interview waitlist candidates early and on a speculative basis.

Hope that helps

I won't be able to attend the welcoming week, so I'll be visiting the weekend before the WW.

How many of you guys are planning on matriculating?

What are you thoughts on Georgetown? In comparison to UNC and Emory? I am evaluating my options and I would love to hear some feedbacks.
I'm not trying to turn this into a comparison thread, but want to know some strengths about McDonough.

Thanks,

Got in yesterday. They call from a (202) 687-XXXX number. All Gtown campus #s start that way - I went there as an undergrad.

If you're asking about the travel expense, then no. They're paying for any food and drinks for the event. :)

Think of it as another MBA host event.

Congratulations to everyone that received an admission offer and good luck to wait listed people.

I too got a call from MSB this thursday and I'm in. Great news indeed.

I was wondering about the scholarships. To people that were offered scholarships along with the admission, was the $$ significant amount? trying to get a feel of what's the average scholarship amount that MSB offers to their admits.

At my joint degree information session, we were told that the average scholarship is (I think) $10,000.
