Called-- the admissions office said that scholarship info is separate and coming "very soon" (that's as specific as she would say)!

Hi All,

Congratulations to all who made it to McCombs in R1. They offered me a spot on waitlist. Anyone else as well on the waitlist? Were you invited for interviews?
I am a bit confused now, I was not invited for interview, I had given up the hopes. But how can they put someone on the waitlist without interview?

:shock: :shock:

I wrote to MBAWaitlist@mccombs.utexas.edu and received this automatic reply


Thank you for your email and interest in the Texas MBA program. In order to better assist our applicants currently on the waitlist, below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions with regards to the waitlist decision timeline, supplemental material requests, interviews, feedback and other common questions. Please refer to the information below.


WAITLIST FAQ’s:



WAITLIST TIMELINE AND DECISIONS:



When will I hear a final decision?

The Admissions Committee periodically reviews candidates currently on the Waitlist (as it seeks to balance the diversity of the incoming class), but we are not able to offer a concrete timeline of when you will hear your final decision. This is due to the uncertain and often unpredictable nature of the admissions process, and we are not able to predict the movement of the incoming class.



What is the latest date anyone has been admitted off the Waitlist?

We are unable to guarantee a timeline of when you will hear a final decision, however most decisions are typically released by early summer. However, in rare circumstances, decisions have been released as late as mid to late summer. While this is not a common occurrence, you are able to remain on the Waitlist as long as you are willing to continue being considered for admission. If your personal decision-making timeline does not allow you to remain on the waitlist, you are able to request to be removed at any time by emailing MBAWaitlist@mccombs.utexas.edu. We are not able to honor early decision requests from candidates on the Waitlist.



I’m an international student on the Waitlist and I need a decision in order to begin the visa application process.

We are aware of the timelines required of international students and obtaining a visa. We understand that international applicants need time to process a visa, however unfortunately we may not know the final diversity and make-up of our class. Therefore, you may choose to remove yourself from the Waitlist due to visa timing issues.



WAITLIST SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS:



Can I submit new materials for consideration to enhance my candidacy?

As the Admissions Committee periodically reviews candidates on the Waitlist, there may be an opportunity for supplemental information or materials to be submitted for further consideration of your candidacy. It is not a guarantee that we will ask for an update or more information if we feel we have enough information in your original application to render a final decision. While typically we ask that candidates wait until prompted by Admissions Staff to provide supplemental information, we understand that there may be timely information or updates that you consider important. With regards to this type of new information (such as a recent promotion, a new test score or a new job), you may inform the Admissions Committee by emailing the updated information to MBAWaitlist@mccombs.utexas.edu.



When can I submit supplemental materials and how much lead-time will you give me to collect them?

In the event that the Admissions Committee requests additional or supplemental information to further consider your candidacy, an email will be sent to all candidates currently on the Waitlist approximately one week prior to the review period so there is plenty of time to collect materials for submission.



What kind of supplemental materials do you ask for?

While we can ask for a range of materials, typically it is a new resume if you’ve recently been promoted or a new test score. Occasionally, we might ask to clarify your career goals or provide us with your back-up plan.



How can I submit these materials?

Specific submission instructions will be sent along with the request for information, but typically supplemental materials can be sent directly to MBAWaitlist@mccombs.utexas.edu in the form of scanned PDF files to be uploaded manually to your application by our admissions staff (your application in the system cannot be edited once submitted).



I want to reiterate my interest/enthusiasm for the Texas MBA program, but don’t have specific updates (as listed above.) How can I do this?

The Admissions Committee prefers that you wait to be solicited for any supplemental items and that those that are sent are material updates to your application. Please refer to the list of acceptable materials/information above. However, if you would like to let us know where the Texas MBA program ranks among your choices of schools, why we are the best fit for you and your career goals, what other schools you are applying to, you may send those along to the MBAWaitlist@mccombs.utexas.edu email address and we will be sure to include it as an attachment to your application.


Who should I direct my questions or supplemental materials to?

All Waitlist inquiries and supplemental information should be sent to MBAWaitlist@mccombs.utexas.edu. We will ensure that your materials and information is uploaded to your application for the Admissions Committee’s review.



WAITLIST INTERVIEWS:



Will I get a chance to interview if I’m placed on the Waitlist and I haven’t already interviewed?

Interview invitations can come at any time during the admissions cycle. We do not interview all candidates on the waitlist. If we deem it necessary, we will request an interview while you are on the waitlist to further assess your candidacy. Please wait for an invitation via email.



WAITLIST APPLICATION FEEDBACK:



Can I receive specific feedback on my application?

We are not able to provide individual feedback on your application due to both the large volume of applications we receive and fairness to other applicants in the pool. However, we are always willing to discuss what makes a strong application, generally. This information is discussed in detail on our website.



WAITLIST QUESTIONS (GENERAL):



How many people are placed on the Waitlist in a given year?

Each year, we receive approximately 2,000+ applications total and the incoming class is approximately 270. While there are many qualified individuals, we are limited in the amount of space in our classrooms. The Admissions Committee thoroughly reviews each application holistically, but due to the extremely competitive applicant pool, the waitlist includes very strong candidates that we do not have room in the class for at the time of the decision notification. Each year, the applicant pool changes (different people apply) and the strength of that pool varies. Therefore, the size and strength of the waitlist varies considerably year to year.



Why haven’t I been contacted with further instructions, asked for an update on decision timing or been sent a request for further information?

The Admissions Committee reviews candidates currently on the Waitlist on a rolling basis depending on space created in the incoming class. As the timing of movement is largely out of our control, we are not able to predict key timelines associated with the Waitlist until later in the admissions cycle. We would not be able to send you further instructions for gathering supplemental materials if we were not able to identify potential room in the incoming class. We ask that you continue to remain patient as we gain insight into the availability of space in the incoming class and trust that we will reach out to you in a timely fashion should we require further information or have any material updates regarding your candidacy.



Should I request an early decision if I have other enrollment deadlines to adhere to?

We are not able to honor early decision requests from candidates on the Waitlist. In the event the Texas MBA program is at or near the top of your list of schools, we recommend you remain on the waitlist as long as your decision-timeline can bear. The reason not to request an early decision is that at the time of your requested early decision date, we may not have a full picture of available space in the class.




Is there an appeal process if I did not get admitted off the Waitlist?

All admission decisions are considered final for a given application cycle (i.e., year). You are welcome to reapply to the program again next year. We do not hold this season's application against you. We evaluate your new application on its merits and in the context of the new applicant pool.

Folks that are waitlisted - let's move the conversation over to the waitlist thread so that all the information/sharing is in one spot. R2 folks are going to start to dominate the convo here and we don't want stuff to get lost!
