Has anyone who got in off the waitlist been offered a scholarship?

A few admits who got off the WL from round 1 did.

I think there are far less chances to get one for who come off the waitlist now, unless they had a terrible yield on R2.

I would agree. Round 1 generally has a good number of scholarships. Then round 2, which I would include round 1 WL admits with this group, got several as well. By the time round 3 comes around, including round 2 WL admits, scholarships are hard to come by.

Has anyone heard anything back from admissions since uploading the 1-minute video?

Is there any need to send further updates? I have submitted the video and submitted an updated resume with cover letter (prior to April 9th), but it seems like a lot of time to go with no communication, given that we won't hear until end of May.

You won’t hear anything until the big day. It could be a week or two before the round 3 notification date, based on previous years, or on the round 3 notification date. My bet is you will be lumped in with the round 3 notifications. Enjoy the wait!

Congrats! Did you apply in R1 or R2? What material did you submit to Booth while on the WL?

I'm from Italy, applied in R2.

This was my approach:
- thank you email and quick career update after receiving the WL offer (end of March);
- submitted the video, addressing what I believed was a weak spot in my application;
- updated resume (just a slight update with recent achievements (uploaded onto the portal last week);
- also last week, I sent a second email to adcom, confirming my interest in Booth and giving them a few reason why I would accept an offer despite the current COVID situation. In the same email I mentioned I updated my resume and quickly explained the rationale of my video.

Good luck to everyone still waiting!
