Did anyone who participated in one of the LEAD 2-day events get admitted and placed on the Park Fellowship wait list? Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about whether anyone ever turns down a Park Fellowship, opening up a spot for someone else? How about how many candidates are placed on the wait list?

Johnson uses the Park Fellowship wait list as a trick to keep potential high quality students interested in the program. It is 100% a marketing trick. The wait list is intentional long and few if any people on the wait list end up getting Parks. If you're on the wait list - you're most likely NOT getting the fully ride....The way to handle this is tell the school you NOW have an offer from another MBA program (pick any m7) and while you're happy to be on the Park wait list, you need $ now to help make up your mind. Chances are you'll get some scholarship money ($20-$30K is thrown around, unless you wait too long to do this) today to push your decision. If you do not do this, you'll be on the wait list until you start, and then you'll have ZERO money from the school...Unless you of course take another school's offer. Welcome to Johnson admissions scams 101.

I sort of thought that might have been the case, but apparently not. I know someone who participated in one of the LEAD weekends and was placed on the waiting list for the Park Fellowship who was just pulled off the waiting list into the program. It may be a singular case, but it demonstrates that its not "100% a marketing trick." Also, he was told that the waiting list was, in fact, rather short. I'm not sure the source of your information, but I guess its not "100% an accurate source."

As with all rules, there are exceptions.

My source is having been a student at Johnson and I volunteered in the admissions office as an admissions ambassador.

If you think the waitlist is nothing more than a marketing ploy, I wish you best of luck in getting the full ride...chances are, you won't get one and will matriculate there w/o any money.

Good luck!!!!!

First of all, the person I know already got the fellowship and the attendant full tuition award. So no wish of luck is necessary. Second, your last sentence doesn't make any sense. Did you mean to say "if you don't think the waitlist is nothing more than a marketing ploy?" Third, do you mean you were one of the "social ambassadors?" From what I know, the Admissions office doesn't share those sorts of details with the social ambassadors.
