Just for the reference of all future applicants who get placed on the WL (I know past threads have been helpful for the group here), there was a general update early Jan that we'll start hearing updates to the waitlist (including admits, releases, and presumably continued WL) by early February. Good luck to everyone. HBS has been very transparent about the process which is much appreciated.

Yep!
We got this e-mail on Jan 4 and by "the very beginning of February" when they get a better sense of R2 applicants pool they will give us some news!

Anyways, if anybody hears anything before that, we highly appreciate if you could post your story here :)
Good luck, guys!

PS: are any of you guys planning to visit HBS in the upcoming weeks?

I visited before. Are you thinking of going?

The email made it sound like people are sending in a bunch of updates. I thought that was something HBS didnt look too kindly upon. What is your take guys? Have you personally sent anything?

Visited before and did the interview on campus - they seemed to make it pretty clear the act of visiting and isn't really a factor for getting off WL (I tend to believe them on this - it would severely disadvantage people who don't have the $ to travel).

Based on reading past years threads, it seemed like a good number of people who got off the WL didn't submit anything else. If there's anything actually worth updating (e.g., retook GMAT and got a higher score, got a real promotion at work) or something pretty "objective" in that sense it may be worth sending that in but I wouldn't lob anything in just because other people are doing it. Good judgment here is important. I think 80% of the wait-list decision will be based on what the composition of the R2 class looks like vs anything specific to your profile.

I also got the impression that people are sending a bunch of updates. I personally do not have anything to update - I am not planning to retake GMAT, still on the same job etc - so won't bother them just for the sake of doing so. Agree with CJH2015 - most of the decision is related to the R2 pool, and other relevant aspect might be the acceptance rate from R1 admits of your pool.

I am planning to visit HBS in the upcoming weeks, more with a perspective of "doing everything I can". I know that the visit by itself will not change any decisions, but it is still good to feel at peace with myself :) my boss was actually proactive in saying that she believes I should go there and visit, so I took advantage of her openess and flexibility!

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!

Think we'll get an email update right around 3PM today. Based on last year's email, the email this year will tell us:

a) How many they plan to accept (likely a range)
b) How many they plan to release
c) When and how they'll start the notification (likely rolling - admits get a call, releases get an update on the email portal).

No one really knows so it's all guess-work... but what's being bandied around is ~100 - 150 although I'd say that's closer to ~100 - 125. Can't really do it on the math alone because they're going to look at it by bucket (nationality / ethnicity, profession, region, etc.). The retail WL'er is not competing against the guy in investment banking.

Good luck everyone... Hoping we get an update and a call soon. I'm sure we've all imagined the moment in our heads millions of times, I can't begin to fathom how amazing that moment would be.

That being said, trying to temper my expectations after the disappointment on Dec 14th after what I thought was a great interview.

My hope is that round 1 wait list has fairly decent odds when compared to later rounds.

Good luck to everyone, trust the process and continue to believe!

So based on the e-mail we've just received, next week there will be 30-40 of us that will be released, plus 20-30 that will receive an offer!

Finger crossed!
And if you hear anything from them, please share your story ;)

Hang in there and good luck, everyone!

The transparency in the process this year is very nice and definitely considerate of the admissions board...

Unfortunately, it does add to the suspense and makes the comparison with last year's waitlist process a little tricky! One thing I can infer, however, is that it appears as through they go through admit/release decisions industry by industry throughout the week..
