Yeah, the only hope left is the waitlist. Anyone else noticing that this year's class is shaping up to be much more competitive? I only saw 2 admits with below a 700 GMAT today.

I'm in!!!!! Got the call at 11:40am from the Adcom member who interviewed me.

P.S. the exact messaging was that I "have been recommended for admission" and that the university board will have to formally approve my acceptance. So tomorrow I'm supposed to get a basic email saying I've been recommended, and then I'll get a formal email a few days later confirming acceptance. I was also told to not be concerned about this at all....did anyone else have the same experience?

norrab11,
I understand - I have a 730, 3.98 (we both obviously got one B), and 8 years of experience, and I too can only hope to be waitlisted. To be fair, it is the best program of its kind, and there are many non-performance related factors that schools use to select their students. I’m sure that you will be successful, and maybe even be accepted from the waitlist!

I was WL in R1. I submitted an updated resume with new publications (i work in academic life science research) and financial/mentoring responsibilities i had taken over at work. Submitted a third recommendation and had my supervisor submit an updated recommendation (she was one of my original recommenders). I also submitted certificates of completion from my volunteering activities plus a leadership development program i completed at work. I enrolled for the online math for management class and sent them that enrollment as my GMAT score was low and I wanted to address that. I sent them only the enrollment confirmation as I had not completed the course before the material submission deadline.

Not sure how much of this mattered but I hope this helps and good luck :)
