Yes, if I don't hear anything from Wharton. Got the email too. This waitlist seems very passive, totally the opposite of Booth, guess its more of a waiting game now

I bet there is a high conversion rate from waitlist... maybe 40-50%? I only think this way because usually the applicant pool is weaker for R2. Luckily, waitlist from R1 gets a shot after deposits are due and grouped with the R2 pool.

Very quiet in here during the Christmas season! I agree that there should be a big push for admits in February and March as R1 deposits fall due and R2 decisions are made, respectively. Not sure about the conversion rate though ...not sure anyone knows.

Hang in there and, failing a Wharton admit, see you at Sloan in August! :)

We have to wait guys!. I got this email.

Happy New Year! I hope that this note finds you well and that you had a nice holiday season. Now that the Round 2 application process for the Class of 2017 is underway, I wanted to reach out with a quick update.

Over the next couple of months we will be actively reviewing our waitlisted candidates. Starting in February, some of you may receive an update to your status. You may or may not hear from us that early, but will definitely receive an update no later than Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

Our team realizes that many of you have multiple application processes that you are managing, which may require you to make challenging decisions with incomplete information from our end. As you begin to receive other opportunities we realize that you may need to move forward in a timely manner. Should you decide that you do not wish to remain on our waitlist, please send an e-mail to
mba-waitlist@wharton.upenn.edu with the subject line "Waitlist Remove."

I look forward to being in touch soon with more updates and please feel free to reach out should any questions arise in the meantime.

Technically speaking, this is the first day we could hear about an offer from the waitlist :)

I'm guessing they will wait until R1 deposits are due later this month, but hopeful some of us will see some movement soon.

What else can we discuss while we wait other than idle gossip? Best of luck everyone. Keep the dream alive!

R1 deposit ($2,000) is due on 13 February 2015.

Based on last year's thread, we can expect some movement around that date. Even more around the date R2 decisions are released, depending how things get done this year.

A bit of speculation and optimism on my side! :)

I'd certainly like to think so! :P

Judging from the 2012 and 2013 threads, there were some waitlisters admitted just after R1 deposits were due. The vast majority, however, received admits at the same time as R2 decisions were released.

Given we've been told we will definitely receive an update no later than March 24th, I expect to hear on that date and I'm trying not to get my hopes up in the meantime.

I just got this email:

Now that the Round 1 matriculation deadline has passed, we now have a better understanding of where the Class of 2017 stands in terms of enrollment and potential need. We will continue to review the waitlist as we move throughout the Round 2 process and you will receive a status update by March 24, 2015.

We realize that remaining on the waitlist can bring mixed feelings, but please know that we only retain a waitlist in good faith that space may become available. It is also important to reiterate what an incredibly talented and select group you are.

With that said, we know that many of you have multiple application processes that you are managing, which may require you to make decisions with incomplete information from our end. Should you decide that you do not wish to remain on our waitlist, please send an e-mail to
mba-waitlist@wharton.upenn.edu with the subject line "Waitlist Remove."

I look forward to being in touch soon with more updates and please feel free to reach out as questions arise.
