I got converted into an admit as well from R1 waitlist. Know 1 other friend. Seems like they've broken the mould this year? :)

Hi all,

I have been waitlisted in R2.

I've only received a letter in my portal. It says that I've been offered a place on the waitlist. Should I choose to remove myself from it, I can email them.

Q1/ Do I need to officially accept a spot on the waitlist?
Q2/ Will any other information around what I can do to get off the waitlist be communicated to me?
Q3/ Do you all have any wharton-specific advice on what I can do to get off the waitlist?

Thanks!

I suggest you check some of the previous years' waitlist topics. They are a good source of information on what other people have done to get off the waitlist. You can see those topics in the first post.

If you are still interested in Wharton (e.g. you have not been admitted to another MBA program you would prefer), you should accept your place on the waitlist as soon as possible. Once you do, pause your urge to email the adcom with any additional information. The way we encourage our clients to think about their position on the waitlist, the adcom read your narrative and wanted to reject you, but wasn't able to bring themselves to do it because your stats were otherwise strong. In such an instance, the problem is that you are not telling a good personal story. Further emails from you telling that same story won't help you; in fact, they will hurt you instead.

The task ahead of you is this: (1) identify what went wrong with your current story, (2) figure out a more compelling narrative that you can convey to the adcom that still fits within the facts you presented in your application, and (3) mount a campaign to communicate this improved narrative to the adcom. For more help, check out the following posts we've written to help you mount an effective waitlist campaign and turn that waitlist notice into an offer of admission. [/list]

Good luck!

We've seen one unusual, positive development for applicants currently on Wharton's waitlist -- one client admitted from Wharton's waitlist received a scholarship offer. This was a US applicant with guaranteed ability to be able to enroll in the fall regardless of Visa situation. With the COVID uncertainty around Visa issuance, this is a good time for US applicants to win admission from the waitlist.

Does anyone know when WL decisions from R2 will be revealed? Would these usually only be released after the adcom has had the chance to review all R3 candidates?

I'm an international student and very worried about whether the current covid situation is actually impacting my chances of getting admitted due to the visa situation...

Did you follow up with them recently about being put on the waitlist?

Nope, I didn't follow up as I was expecting them to get back to us in sometime in April 2nd week. I think they pushed the start date of the program from May 20 to Aug 2 and asked me if my plans have changed and if I still want to be on the wait-list.

Sounds like you applied to the EMBA program, and not the FT program...

Anyone heard anything from the FT program waitlist yet? Booth is chasing me to accept their offer...

If you want Wharton bad enough, you can always pay the Booth deposit and decline later?

Yes - I'm certainly intending to do that, and hoping that a Wharton response comes soon - this waiting is killing me...
