I am also waitlisted..I believe I have a strong profile but I was not at my best in the interview...I am sure i am waitlisted because of this..I had mentioned 'consulting' and 'entrepreneurship in long term' as my goal.....14th march is way too far:(

Interesting observation. Even I have entrepreneurship as my long term goal! Cant be a coincidence with so many ppl.
Hope the Round 2 pool doesn't have any entrepreneurs which might boost our chances.

Dude, you would think that successful entrepreneurs would have the most \$! :D

I'm going to start an "entrepreneurs as marginalized minority class" thread soon.

I got a reply from my interviewer. He said that he recommended me and was surprised with my result.

I completely agree with enkie that entrepreneurs are less preferred!!

Hi guys don't lose hope. I'm one of those lucky few that were admitted after being on the waitlist for nearly a year (for the following year's class). After going through that pain and then through the joy of studying and completing the MBA, I can categorically say that the pain is worth it. Feel free to look up old threads where I have posted my story and advise on what helped me get through.

Good luck.

Hey duffman - I visited the school back in November. Also, I just re-took the GMAT and sent in my new scores to the adcom.

I am wondering if they review waitlist at all. It seems that they are just trying to manage expectations. Any movement will only happen once all rounds are complete and if they have any seats left empty by then.

I guess that's all that could be expected of someone to improve their chances. I think vintron is correct about his analysis of LBS handling their wait list. The only person I heard of getting of the wait list was bsd_lover and he too got admission into the following year's batch so don't know what to expect of it anymore.

Thanks duffman26 and vintron.

I agree -- I think LBS waitlist is poorly managed. What I did appreciate about INSEAD is that waitlisted candidates were still treated similarly as admitted candidates in that we were encouraged to still apply for the scholarships while waiting. Someone else wrote a very succinct analysis of the INSEAD waitlist process. It looks like often people were put on waitlist because they are waiting to see if a similar profile pops up in R2 (as you guys surely know, INSEAD has over 80 nationalities and put a 10% cap on each country), then they make the decision accordingly -- this results in many R1 waitlist candidates being admitted with R2. I really appreciated the communication process with INSEAD and the level of respect I got before and after waitlist.

Good luck to fellow LBS waitlisters who are still waiting. Are you guys contemplating other schools? Or is LBS THE one for you?

From previous years' posts we can anticipate that most of the ppl on waitlist will be re-waitlisted for a further date..... as far as I can tell, the chance to get in is pretty slim...
