Hi everyone,

This threat has been very quiet. I am currently waitlisted and I wanted to know to whom should we send updates. Today there was a chat in GMAT Club hosted by Fortuna Admissions where I asked:

Should all communication be sent directly to the waitlist manager or to someone else?


The answer from Fortuna was the following:

"The best idea is to send any waitlist updates to their regional admissions manager (this is the person they will have had contact with throughout the process). That person will make sure any update is correctly filed and forwarded to the AdCom"

I wanted to know if someone has experience regarding this or any useful information. Thanks!

How to Get Off the MBA Waitlist - YouTube Live by GMAT Club and Personal MBA Coach.



Dear Waitlisted Applicants,
You put a lot of time and effort into your MBA applications and, after months of hard work, you’re…waiting. It’s ok to scream into a pillow or go to town on a punching bag. It’s frustrating! But after you do, sign up for this youtube live session hosted by Scott Edinburgh, Founder of Personal MBA Coach. He'll talk about the process, the stats, do's and don'ts, and what has worked for his clients in the past. He'll wrap everything up with a live Q&A session. You don't want to miss this!


About Scott Edinburgh

A Wharton MBA graduate with a BS from MIT, Scott has been an MBA admissions consultant for eight years and has helped hundreds of applicants around the world get into top MBA programs. Besides perfecting the MBA admissions process and making dreams come true for applicants from Tokyo to San Francisco and everywhere in between, he has also worked across consulting, financial services and strategy & corporate development roles before becoming a Full-Time admissions consultant. He ran Global Strategy / Corporate Development as a Director of a 700 person leading independent publishing company. He also worked for InterContinental Hotels Group in Global Strategy, as well as JP Morgan and Deloitte Consulting in Mergers & Acquisitions. His experience in many of the jobs applicants have today or hope to obtain post-MBA helps him advise them on the best ways to not only get into their top choice schools, but position themselves for their dream jobs.

As an individual MBA admissions consultant, he takes the time to get to know every client personally as they go through the journey together. This starts with a deep analysis into applicant's background, an identification of his/her objectives and a thorough development of personal story. His no BS approach ensures that nothing falls through the cracks and his feedback is honest, non-sugar coated and immediate. He push his clients very hard and the work pays off. 96% of his clients got into one of their top two or three schools. He works with applicants applying to full-time MBA programs as well as Executive and part-time MBA programs.

Sorry to hear that tipoktech! I am in the same boat with you.

Now there is a long wait until the next waitlist review... Judging from previous years threats, LBS likes to wait until very late to accept people from the waitlist. Very important to work on backup plans!!

So I applied for LBS in Round 2 and got waitlisted since then (March 2017). Yesterday the school offered a position for next year's intake (MBA 2020) so that's good news.
The deposit is pretty steep though (4000 GBP due by September and another 6000 GBP due by November), seems like the school is really worried of people accepting and not going.
