No Scholarship information in the online portal ... so I believe it's bad luck then

Guess you won't get \$\$\$ when you're in need

Accepted! I missed a call when I was at the gym, and got a message on my voicemail. I'm still going to Tuck though

Congratulations to all accepted! Hope you get to really celebrate this weekend.

For those of you who were waitlisted in Round 1, if you sign in to your application status it should give you an updated status. I'm still waitlisted...sigh.

Good thing I just accepted a new job offer.

I think I speak on behalf of the entire wait list on congratulating you on Tuck and kindly requesting you withdraw your admission to Georgetown

Got IN!!! with some scholarship as well! Never received a call, got a mail saying you can check your decision online. Was sure about a ding but got this!

International students: How are you planning the finances? Is there any student loan worth researching? I am from India.

Congrats to all those who were admitted!

I was a R1 candidate who was waitlisted and was waitlisted again today! I already submitted another essay. Aside from retaking the GMAT does anyone have any suggestions on how to increase my admissions chances? Also, does anyone know of someone who was admitted after being waitlisted twice? Do I have reason to be encouraged or discouraged? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I was super bummed that I didn't get any call and was disappointed to get an email with link for decision. Heavy hearted, I clicked the link and was relieved to see the word, "Congratulations."
No scholarship but I didn't expect that anyways.

I have to decide between full time and the exec MBA, as the latter allows me to continue my work. So the waitlisted candidates,don't lose hope.

Congratulations to all who got in.. Am a Round 1 candidate who was on the waitlist as well, continue to be considered on the waitlist after yesterday's decision.

Still hoping that the waitlist gets converted into an admit...

Cheers

Could someone (perhaps a current student) shed light on how the waitlist works at McDonough? How many do they typically put on the waitlist? I've heard they have a pretty low yield, so does that mean a lot of applicants are admitted off the waitlist?

Was out of the country with no phone service, so I wasn't expecting a call, but waiting eagerly for the email. Accepted! With some scholarship as well.

I am from Panama. My government lends me up to 80k. I have to pay it back in 20 years at a 3% interest rate. Try going to the government agency in India that gives out student loans.

I've been admitted to Tepper and wait listed at McDonough. I've been living in the DC metro the past 6 years and would like to go into investment management somewhere in DC, Baltimore or Philly.

I'd welcome any thoughts or suggestions on whether I should just commit to Tepper or wait to see if I get into McDonough. Thanks!

GenericUsername, I'm a current 1Y at MSB working in IM at bulge bracket this summer (in NYC but also have input on DC/Baltimore IM recruiting). Feel free to message me if you want to discuss IM or the wait list process. Have a few classmates that successfully navigated the wait list and can offer my 2 cents on their strategy.

jgn24: I am also on the waitlist. Would you mind if I sent you a PM as well to hear about the process at Georgetown?

I have been admitted to Georgetown and Notre Dame (and was wait listed at North Carolina). I am from New York City and looking to make a career change into consulting.

Any opinions on a comparison of these schools would be appreciated. Good luck to everyone and thanks!

I live in DC and received mine yesterday. If you are in the U.S. you should get it by the end of the week.
