That makes my decision a little simpler - someone on the waitlist here will be receiving a good news in near future.

Congratulations to all admits.

Hi....congrats.....request you and all others who are selected but who do not intend to join may please inform Georgetown asap. I have been put in waitlisted domain and would like to enter into the accepted club asap.


Hey!! Even I have been put on the wait-list. What can one expect now?? Any suggestions?
Congratulations to all who got an admit!!

I have 4 of my friends who have been wait listed. It looks like McDonough hasn't rejected anyone, even the wait listed candidates from Round 2 are further wait listed in Round 3!

All the waitlisted candidates have a decent chance.

McDonough just loves to waitlist, doesn't it ?
Year after year.Year after year.

Actually, The yield at McDonough is know to be super low.

The main reason I think is the lack of funding/aid opportunities the school provides for internationals.

Bottom line --> Hang onto those horses waitlisters.You guys still have a good chance of making it


Here is the yield data for reference --->

I know I am not enrolling here. I also know that these schools suffer from low yield.
SO, don't lose hope.
At the same time, if you can muster better score on GMAT / GRE, an additional recommendation letter, I think you will be fine.

June 2nd is the deadline for deposit. I think, after that, the bulk of movement will start.
Have patience, if you are waitlisted in many schools like this one, you have a very decent shot. Just that, it will be hectic.

Thanks for this information Hiren. I see that you are admitted to Georgetown and few other schools. Where are you headed to?

I didn't pay my deposit.
So, a seat will open up for a waitlist student and I wish you all the best.
