I haven't seen anyone accepted R3, from the waitlist or even rejected from the waitlist. I'm sure the sample is small and odds that they post on here or livewire may be low, but it still seems strange...that and I haven't received any emails/notifications outside of status updates putting me on the waitlist and then keeping me there for the summer.

I know HBS is infinitely more transparent in their process (on their waitlist as well)...does anyone know if Wharton's silence is normal (and Harvard the odd one by treating people like adults whose lives they have in their hands) or if Wharton is the odd one out and other waitlists provide real information like HBS does?

I guess that we will received updates when the Round 3 deposit deadline passes. I don't know the exact date, but it should be early June.

I have talked to people on the waitlist and used my Google powers to search for relevant keywords that indicate movement. So far the information indicates that there hasn't been any movement on the waitlist. I think that we will begin seeing movement in early June after the Round 3 deposit deadline. From a yield perspective and class composition perspective, this behavior makes sense.

After the Round 3 deadline, Wharton will already have seen the available talent pool for the year, know how many spaces are available, and know that those individuals still on the waitlist will most likely take the offer. Few people would wait for so long unless Wharton is their top choice. So it will be a matter of offering admission until the available spaces are filled. Why offer a place to a Round 1 waitlist in Round 2 when you haven't seen the Round 3 applicants? Why offer a place to a waitlisted applicant before you know with almost certainty how many spaces will be available? It's cruel, but effective.

No kidding but I think you're right on. Unfortunately, people may need to make decisions before early June. Has anyone taken themselves off the list?

I saw some students that matriculated in other universities, so maybe.

The letter re-appeared. Oh well, could have been just a system glitch.

I have the same question but guess no one really knows the answer as it seems none from R3 has reported to be admitted to Wharton.

No news! With all my research, I don't know if anybody was admitted from Round 3, and I can't find the deposit deadline, but I agree that it must have passed by now.

Justin Tuck (a former NY Giant) is admitted in R3. Other than him, I haven't heard anyone admitted in R3.

That is awesome! I wonder if he could share the R3 deposit deadline with us... =)

Everyone get the email from Wharton today? I'm not sure how many of us could still be holding out. Maybe 20?

Finally rejected! Glad to be done with this terribly-managed process. Hope, for the sake of the new set of applicants, that William has learned a thing or two and will do a better job next year...
