At this time of year, many applicants receive notification that they have been waitlisted, which means their candidacy will be weighed against applicants from the next rounds. This is disappointing for some applicants and the start of a nerve-wracking wait. What will you do at this time to improve your chances and strengthen your candidacy?


Here are some tips:

1. Take the GMAT again if you think there’s some chance you can improve your grade significantly.

2. Visit the campus and request, in advance, a (second) interview with an admissions officer.

3. Get a couple more support emails from students/professors/alumni. Email them to the admissions office.

4. Write a cover letter to the head of admissions detailing recent, significant, positive developments in your career / life (GMAT improvement, new job, promotion, distinctions) and restating your strong interest in the program.

5. If the school doesn’t object to additional recommendation letters, get an additional recommendation letter. If there was a significant development in your career (new employer, promotion, distinction) – you can get an additional recommendation letter covering this new development.

6. If the school allows additional essays, select a topic that adds information beyond your original application and write a new essay.

Good luck to all those waiting!

Brian at gurfi help me assisted me immensely on my MBA essay. Whereas I had many ideas and thoughts on my 1st draft, he help with structure and alignment that lead to a final paper that I am extremely proud of. I strongly recommend Brian for anyone who is in need of structure with their essay.
