How to get off the MBA waitlist
Sorry you’re in this situation. I know it wasn’t the result you were hoping for, but there are things that you can do, and every year, people get pulled off the waitlist. Remember that it is a list for you to wait on, and often it’s based on how the class is shaping up and not necessarily you personally, but I do recommend that you do the maximum that they allow you to do. If they say that you can retake the GMAT, that that’s all they’ll accept, then retake the GMAT. If they say you can send anything in, then send things in, but be thoughtful and judicious about what you do send in. Don’t have all eight of your clients write in on your behalf or send in your recent poetry samples. Be thoughtful. Visit campus if you haven’t already. Talk to current students and alums. Perhaps they can write in on your behalf. Think about what your application was lacking and maybe even get former admissions committee to help you figure out what they might be looking for.
