My advise would be take the time. Retrospect and try to identify where your application was lacking and then work on it. Network a lot too. Chat with student ambassadors and tell them about your situation. Ask them if they can send a support letter for you. Research about Olin better and learn why you want to be at Olin.

Just mailing them within 2-3 days would not give you proper time and ideas to improve yourself. Moreover, if you connect with Student Ambassadors or Current Students and they agree to write support letters or even talk with the AdCom about your situation, the email is best served after they have completed those.

The decisions for Olin R3 will be on or before May 1st. So will the R2 waitlisted candidates expect results by then? If so wouldn't it be a problem for the International applicants to get their process done before joining Olin?

It's normal to expect a decision by the Round 3 deadline. It will be difficult process but not an impossible one. I would suggest take a heads up and start preparing your financials from now.

Received a call from Ashley confirming admission around 3:00PM GMT on 12th March.
Very excited. Was on a mini vacation driving along coastal Ireland when I got the call.

It was a good holiday. :)

Lol. No. I know the pain of being waitlisted and wouldn't wish it for anyone.

I think I should mention that I'm a reapplicant.
I was waitlisted by Olin for fall 2017 but didn't get through. I improved my profile over 2 years and reapplied.

Hi,

Just got my admit offer. Received some scholarship but want to estimate total expense.

At the risk of sounding silly, can someone please tell me the total tuition fee expense for 2 year MBA program?

--> Is it approximately $93K *2 (https://olin.wustl.edu/EN-US/academic-p ... fault.aspx) OR
--> Is it approximately $59K *2 (https://olin.wustl.edu/docs/MBA/MBAviewbook.pdf)

Moreover, what is approx cost of travel during the entire mandatory global immersion program including flight tickets and Visa process?

Thanks,
Harsh Jain

I mailed the adcom regarding the same while researching about olin but got no response. It looks like 59 k

even harvard doesnt have 93k tusion :P

the cost for the immersion depends on the flight charges while booking .. it is better to get in touch with a currents student to have an estimate

To be honest, this is not 100% confirmed. But going by the previous trends, you should get yours soon. A lot of people get these mail invites.

If nothing, I suggest you take the initiative to help your application to move from WL to admit. Write to them to have a skype call.
