i sent my update yesterday and i received the confirmation today. Now the wait begins until 13-Mar.


I sent my updates in as well and got a confirmation that it was uploaded to my file.
Any idea on how many people from GC would get off the waitlist? Based on last year's data?
Anyone know how the yield turned out to be for EA and Round 1 applicants this year?
Just curious!

I never got a confirmation, so I might have to call to verify. As far as yield, my guess is that it might be lower than average. I think Duke expected it to be higher because of the Businessweek rankings, which explains why they admitted so few in R1, but the number of R2 applications, at least on this site, is actually way down from previous years. Not sure why, but it might mean our chances of getting off the waitlist are much higher than we expected.

I really don't think so. Feedback is meant to give the admissions committee more info (updates) to help them form an clearer opinion about your candidacy. If you were into both schools, already had the Park money, and were looking for a Fuqua scholarship, then maybe it would be a good idea to mention Johnson. But right now, brandishing the Parks invitation amounts to saying that Fuqua made a mistake in waitlisting you because another school thought you were one of the best they had. And committees don't like to be told they made a mistake. Mentioning Park at this point might send the wrong message and hurt your chances of being accepted. Just my two cents.

Hope some of us receive good news on Friday...if I don't get off the WL this round I'll probably withdraw my app and go to one of the other schools I applied to in R2...that is, if I get in somewhere!

BOL guys...

Nah. I was trying to line some more meaningful things up to let them know but they fell through. I'll probably do an additional LOR and a note of interest for the R3 decisions.

Do you work for the Cubs? I met a guy on my Kellogg visit last May that worked for the Cubs. He was applying to Kellogg and Ross- I think.

Hah, strange. I don't work for the Cubs. I was there last May though, but it was a pretty slow day, only a few other people there.

So I'm looking at my decision letter from December still, does that just mean we are still on the waitlist? I'm not sure if we are supposed to see anything today or not.
