Same. If I don't get in anywhere round 2, I'm probably going to give up on this MBA dream.

I think I listed Yale as one of my top choices (I don't remember the options) but did not as the first choice.

Ugh, I got rejected without an interview. Does anyone have any idea why they waited to reject me instead of doing it mid round?

I feel for you man. This is my third time applying to bschools. I don’t think I’ve even the energy to make a few R2 apps.

Looks like Yale has waitlisted a bunch of us and most likely will keep us on fence till the very end before dumping. Btw, did you interview this time?

Any advice for those on the waitlist? Can we ask for feedback? If so, how? The FAQ page is somewhat vague here...

I am kind of in shock that I was rejected and truly saddened. I thought that a round 3 WL would translate to an acceptance or at least another WL, particularly because no concrete reason for the WL and eventual rejection was provided apart from lack of space. I also remained on the WL until the last possible day, which I now know doesn't really mean much. I feel that I must really have rubbed them the wrong way or bombed my interview, which feels deeply personal -- more personal than if it was due to some objective measure. I mean, I am a URM, LGBT, test scores comfortably above SOM's averages, an inconsistent UG record at a top-50 school that was tempered by a good record at an Ivy League grad school with 5/6 years WE (depending on how you count it) in which I progressed as far as I could within my field (no career ladder in teaching). Again, I am BY NO MEANS a perfect candidate, but I don't know why in R1 I went from waitlist-able, to reject-able when I was told I had nothing at all to work on.

Really sorry to hear man. It might be the interview this time. The bschool application process is a big scam - at least that’s what I’ve come to realize. Every applicant’s goal in the essays is to change the world; how many MBAs are actually changing the world? You just didn’t get lucky just like me. Good luck. You will do great :)

I'm sorry to hear that - it's definitely a challenging outcome. You gotta let the dust settle, figure out if there's anything you could
Change in your strategy, action it and then move on. You can't change their decision.

Curious to hear what your extra curriculars are like? I'm LGBT as well, and I think it was a strength of my application as I have really strong extra curriculars in that space (eg i wrote about LGBT inclusion as my biggest commitment)

Fellow Indians - how many of you got an admit and how many got waitlisted? Trying to asses my chances to get off the waitlist.

I am deliriously happy about receiving an offer, don't get me wrong, but one quick clarifying question. If there was no mention of a scholarship during my phone call or in my offer letter, can I safely assume I did not get a scholarship offer? For those of you who did, was it mentioned in your offer letter?

Congrats to everyone who heard good news yesterday!!! Go celebrate! @MrAmerica, if you didn't hear on the call about $ typically means no $.

For those of you on the WL, there's still a ton of time in this process. Keep your head up. There's a ton of posts from years past on logical next steps to take, but take some time first for yourself over the holidays.

To those of you without the news you wanted, take a moment to breathe and process. This is just one school. There are many out there. Reflect on what worked and what didn't so you can put forth an even better app -- which I consider to be one that is more true to yourself -- towards another school for R2/R3, and keep your fingers crossed for the rest of your R1 results.
