typically, they contact you a few days before if you're admitted. most of the people who received decisions today are waitlist or rejections.

Hi,
I got admitted from WL R2, received a call from admissions. So for all of you WL, you need to take some actions:
1. Call the admissions or visit them, there will be infosession on May 27th, if you can come, do so. During your chat with adcom express that McCombs is your TOP choice. After that write follow letter with your recent updates in your career, volunteer work, GMAT test scores if you retook it, classes that you took to enhance your knowledge
2. Start networking with current students and alumni. Find out who you know that went there/teaches there or even friends of friedns. Meet with them. The goal should be to get support letters. I've managed to get 2 ppl to send letter of support
3. Ask your current/former supervisor to write additional letter or Recommendation.
4. Additionally you can start networking with your dream company and thus during your conversation with adcom you can tell that and throw some names.
So, to get from WL is doable but you need to work extra on your application.
Good luck!

The new class is shaping up amazingly as we finish out Round 3 and fill out the few remaining spots. We’re excited to have 19 countries represented among our newly enrolled MBAs who achieved an average GMAT score of 702 and an average GPA of 3.44. Congratulations Class of 2018! We look forward to seeing you in Austin in the fall!

In February and April, the Texas MBA Program hosted a total of 164 admitted students at our two Preview Weeksend events! Each year, students admitted to the Texas Full-Time MBA Program are invited to spend two days in the beautiful city of Austin, TX to learn about all of the different resources available to them at McCombs as well as meet their future classmate. Thank you to everyone who attended this year!
