Texas is very interested in hearing about your specific plan when you're in business school because they don't really have a huge Core Curriculum and there's not a lot in place to make sure you maximize your time there... so you need to have a clear intention. If you don't have that I would recommend that you submit an update letter clarifying your intentions and your vision and also to make it a little bit more substitutive maybe do MBA math or something that's going to look like a obvious reason for an update letter. If you have something like a promotion, a job title change ( sometimes easy to negotiate) some type of upgrade in a community position you have these are all good candidates.

Does anyone know when do schools review their waitlists? I know it says on the FAQ that they would review waitlist on a rolling basis but it seems like most people who got accepted from waitlist in May or June. It surely looks like they review the waitlist after all rounds to fill vacant seats.

happens in 2 ways

one, yes, after all rounds are complete and all the people who were given admits have declared intent not to occupy seats, so they have a sense of yield etc.

that's common outside top 10, maybe 15

within top 10, it happens after each round decision date... that is, those WL in R1 can receive a decision along with R2 results.. so on

How many R1 people here are holding out for the UT waitlist? I contacted the student I interviewed with and he said not to lose hope as many fellow classmates were admitted off the waitlist, although likely won't hear back until summertime.
