I'm sure others have received a similar email, but Tuck just updated the wailisted community. This year Tuck has put 300 applicants on the waitlist. Considering that Tuck takes <300 people per class, this is a pretty large number. Historically, Tuck has taken anywhere from 0-12 WL'd applicants in recent years. I recall when we were first WL'd we discussed likelihood of acceptance from the waitlist -- but we couldn't find reliable figures. This should help to address that discussion. So maybe 2% of WL'd applicants will get admitted? Maybe a few more, maybe a few less. Either way, it's highly unlikely.

I would be that Tuck is a particularly difficult school to gain admittance from the waitlist. Its small size and super niche brand probably make it's yield higher... Anyway, I thought I'd share the info from my WL email. At least we have more information now...

I haven't received any communication from Tuck since I last submitted additional feedback--when did you receive this email? Or was the email prompted by you letting adcom know you will be matriculating elsewhere?

Thanks for the info!

Email was unprompted. I responded and removed myself from WL. Got immediate confirmation email from my contact in admissions. I think these emails are handled personally, so it might take some time to generate and disperse.

I got an email recently from them, but it did NOT mention the 300 number. It said they are now reviewing waitlist apps, but to not expect any word until late May/June/July. Also FYI my email was unsolicited.

My email below. Anyone get something similar?


Hello ____,

I realize some time has passed since decisions were released in March and I am sorry we did not have better news for you. We are now nearing the end of our open application rounds and are preparing to turn our attention to the waitlist. Please know we had an incredibly competitive applicant pool this year, and due to our small size, we had to make some very difficult decisions. While obviously not the desired outcome, being placed on the waitlist should be viewed as a positive result of your efforts. I know it is difficult to simply wait, but it has been a very competitive application season at Tuck. We receive three and four times the number of qualified applications than we have seats to offer.

The number of candidates who gain admission to Tuck from the waitlist has varied widely over the last several years, so it is impossible to predict our outcome this year. We do not anticipate any movement from the waitlist until late May at the earliest, more likely it will be in June or July. I will be your admissions contact while you are on the waitlist. If you have any further questions, or if there are significant updates to your candidacy, please contact me.

We also recognize that some time has passed since you were placed on the waitlist, and you may have made plans to attend another school. If this is the case, please let me know so we may remove you from the waitlist and update our records.

this looks similar to the email I got in March from my admissions contact. I applied in EA round so got feedback earlier.

As an International on the wait list, just curious - how do Internationals manage the I20s and Visas if they're admitted late June / July (as the Email suggests)? Wouldn't that mean missing out on stuff like orientation or even first week classes?

People who got this email in last years thread seemed to get in, so I bet that's what will happen next week if not today.

Hi all-- when you first received your notification letter from the admissions committee letting you know you were placed on the waitlist, did you receive that initial letter via email? I only found out I was on the waitlist in the April round after logging into the application portal to view application status; I did not receive the letter via email.

I found it via the portal. Then after sending them the confirmation to stay on the waitlist, I received a feedback email a couple of months later.
