Late afternoon but sort of depends. From what I can tell, McCombs is not very consistent on this.

The same thing happened with Duke in R3. They waitlisted a ton of applicants and almost nobody was admitted.

Welp, no change in status, and those of us waitlisted in R1 are coming up on even 150 days on the waitlist. Fun fun.

Dunno about the rest of you, but I'm officially losing it. I feel like everyday has a better chance than the previous to give me an answer and end up obsessively checking my email till I get one. Then the weekend comes and I start looking forward to checking my mail again on Mondays. McCombs, put us out of our misery please.

I have no doubt the adcom want's to get this over with as much as we do and they are working diligently to do so. However, 5 months in the dark is pretty harsh and I'm not even a R1 applicant. At the very least they could send a brief update email every 1 or 2 months to waitlist candidates basically saying "We know you still exist. Here is where we are in the process and we'd like to update you with XYZ". Also, the adcoms are probably bombarded with phone calls asking a variety of questions on a daily basis. Another good idea for an "update email" would be for the adcoms to simply send out the answers to the most frequently asked questions they receive every month. This would also decrease the volume of phone calls they receive from applicants.

Oh I'm sure they have their hands full. It's just that I'm international, and the later it goes, the lower my chances of being able to quit, pack up, get my visa and move. I'm just venting haha, I do understand that the adcoms are probably really busy this time of year

Okay we've seen some very peculiar McCombs admission results as of late and I'd like to speculate on what this spells for waitlist candidates.

First, R3 had very low admit numbers reported on Clearadmit and GMATClub, with a high amount of R3 waitlists; second, we have already started to see some waitlist rejections trickle through; third, we have had ZERO waitlist admits as of May 14th which is after the major milestones of R2 deposit deadline and R3 decision deadline and later than the past 2 years.

I think this points to either of the following two extreme scenarios:

1. Yields are very low this season in R1/R2, adcoms rejected a few waitlist admits because they are gearing up to admit a very high percentage of the waitlist in a single batch, similar to how they announce R1-R3 admission results in a single day.

2. Yields were very high and they have already filled out their target class in R1/R2. They have the luxury of being able to wait later into the summer to ensure none of their R1/R2 admits deflect to another school. They intend to admit a very low percentage of the waitlist, and will pull off the waitlist only to fill very specific demographics in order to round out their class.

Let's hear everyone else's theories...
