Did McCombs allow waitlist applicants to submit a letter of interest or updates last year without being asked to do so? Seems counterintuitive sending an email to "gauge interest" before offering admission.


Yeah, I agree that it is counterintuitive for McCombs to send out an email gauging all the waitlist candidates' interest, since presumably that is what the "letter of interest" supplemental material portal is for.

My understanding is that this is the first year in recent seasons that McCombs has allowed for a supplemental waitlist material portal. 2 years ago you had to email all waitlist updates to the adcom. So it is possible that this update request is just a carry over from previous practices.

I also find it interesting that 9 applicants had been admitted off the waitlist by May 1st during the 2017 cycle (according to Clear Admit and GMAT Club), however May 10th was the earliest waitlist admit during the 2016 cycle. See screenshot.

Thanks for the analysis. IMO, the timing is largely impacted by their yield rate and application pool. Low yields from previous rounds + small application pool in the last round means earlier review of waitlist. McCombs has been secretive about their waitlist. No info sections or personal contact. Just a blog post.

Yea. He already took another job so wasn’t really pushing too hard. Didn’t send any updates.

Rejected from the McCombs waitlist? Did he have an interview?? Never heard of a school rejecting a waitlister (with an interview) before the end of an admission cycle.

Wow, I’m sorry to hear that. I would have thought they were rejecting applicants who hadn’t put in any additional effort first (i.e. submitting supplemental materials and indicating McCombs as their top choice school). It sounds like it could very well be driven by variables outside of our control at this point, such as filling in specific demographics to round out the class.

I am currently studying to retake the GMAT on May 14th specifically for McCombs... I really hope it isn’t a fool’s errand.

Wow that's crazy to hear all of that, but also good info to know they are actively working on the waitlist. It's unfortunate McCombs is so vague about timing.

I thought they would let international students off the hook first due to visa issues but apparently that was not the case

141 days on the waitlist and counting (213 days since I hit "Submit"), guessing some people might hear on the Round 3 decision deadline? Haven't seen a single acceptance here or on Livewire, wonder what's going on
