The Waiting Game
The amount of contact a B-school wants and expects to have with waitlisted applicants can vary significantly by school. While some maintain a strict "wait and see" policy, others invite additional information that might strengthen an applicant's candidacy or confirm continued interest in attending. The number of students added to and accepted from the waitlist can also vary significantly from school to school and year to year, depending on a variety of factors including application volume and yield.
|SCHOOL||ADD'L MATERIALS POLICY||FEEDBACK PROVIDED||WAITLISTED LAST YEAR||ACCEPTED OFF WAITLIST|
|Carnegie Mellon (Tepper)||Encourages||No||11%||18%|
|Harvard||Does not accept||No||NA||0%|
|Michigan (Ross)||Accepts some||No||13%||26%|
|Penn (Wharton)||Does not accept||No||NA||NA|
|UCLA (Anderson)||Accepts some||No||11%||29%|
