I am posting here questions that were asked on Waitlist topic in Cornell live chat last year. If anyone wants to view whole chat transcript, the same can be downloaded from here calling-all-johnson-cornell-applicants-2016-intake-class-of-200239-460.html#p1620996


What aspects of the application require further development if offered waitlist position?

Cornell_Eddie: If on the waitlist, it's important that you self reflect on your application. Think of GMAT, letters of recommendations, etc. How can you improve your application?



I have been waitlisted without interview - can you suggest what kind of updates can I provide and how to strengthen my profile?

Cornell_Chris: I would encourage you to look at your application as a whole and try and identify some potential weaknesses. I would also encourage you to compare your current application to the current class profile.



If 2 letters of recommendation have already been submitted, do you accept another letter for waitlisted candidates?

Cornell_Heather: No, you do not need to submit another letter as a waitlisted candidate.



Will wait listed R1 candidates be considered before the R1 deposit deadline?

Cornell_Heather: We look at wait list candidates throughout the whole application cycle , This means it may or may not meet the R1 deposit deadline.



What is the average waitlist to admit conversion ratio?

Cornell_Eddie: If you have a good GMAT and GPA and on the waitlist, I would consider getting another letter of recommendation. I would encourage you to look at your goals essay again and does it make sense? If any work gaps, make sure you explain.



Are waitlisted candidates eligible for scholarships from your past experience?

Cornell_Chris: Wait-list candidates are still eligible to for merit scholarship

So for waitlisted candidates, apart from letters of recommendation & GMAT scores, what else do you suggest to be shared with you?

Cornell_Heather: Yes you can submit more recommendation letters, or anything that you feel will increase your chances. The things we see most common are employment promotions, increase in test scores.



Should waitlisted applicants send profile updates in a time or shoud they send updates once they have?

Cornell_Eddie: I recommend a waitlist candidate to stay in touch but without overdoing it. Send updates that you truly feel will be valuable to your candidacy.



I appreciate that you want candidates on the waitlist to send you worthwhile updates without overdoing it. But are these updates considered on a rolling basis or will you review all applications in totality before releasing your round 2 decisions?

Cornell_Heather: Yes the waitlist candidates will be on a rolling basis. You have been completely reviewed if you have been waitlisted. We review all applications fully. This round has been very competitive.

Hi All,

I do have a great GMAT score (770) and I have already submitted 2 LORs. My work experience is 1.5 years as of now, and probably the reason I am wait-listed is they want to be sure that I am well aware of what I am going to do in MBA and post MBA. They may have other reasons as well.
Any advice?
Should I follow up with adcoms?

I sent an email with an update to my profile with a new job about a week ago. Does anyone know when the Admissions Committee will respond to the email?

@AnnaKathpal- Why the f... are you in such a rush to go to school. Wait a year or two and you could apply to an even better school. At this point in time neither are you going to add any value to the school nor with the school add any to you.

krishks and vineetbhosle1 - Sorry to burst your bubble dudes but if you got wait listed without interview then it ain't happening. Krish up your GMAT for god sake.

Thanks for the feedback!

I find it a bit rude. Honestly, we all understand our chances of getting in are slim to none, so you are not bursting any bubbles. Also not sure where you come from, but people with all GMATs - Ages can contribute to the class. Had we were not good enough or did not have any chance - we would have been rejected, as enough people are.

so As a Johnson alum or current student, I raise a question - how much value were you able to bring to the program when you reply so boorishly on a forum to people who are just trying to help each other. -

edit : just realised that you will start school in 17, well I hope you will treat your classmates with more respect. I will see you if I am able to get in.

If you have a bone of decency - please help us, give us advice in a better, more respectable manner.
