Now that the Round 1 decision date has passed, it's time to post our Waitlist Guidelines for the Fall 2015 application cycle. We had so many wonderful candidates in Round 1 but unfortunately not enough space to admit every single person. We encourage waitlisted candidates to read the guidelines below to learn more about what will happen moving foward and ways to enhance your candidacy this year.
- Your name will remain on the waitlist until a final decision is made on your application or you request your application be withdrawn.
- Waitlisted candidates (excluding those who withdraw) will be reconsidered for admission in subsequent rounds.
- Round 1 applicants will receive an update on your application status by the Round 2 decision deadline of April 2, 2015. Some candidates may be offered the option of remaining on the waitlist for consideration in Round 3.
- Another update on your application status will be sent by the Round 3 decision deadline of June 3, 2015.
- Waitlisted candidates may send in updates to their application to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is completely optional.
- We ask that you use your personal judgment and discretion in submitting information that is relevant to your application. Some examples include (but are not limited to): updated GMAT/GRE/TOEFL scores, promotions at work, and recent extracurricular accomplishments.
- We cannot give individual feedback to waitlisted applicants.
- Chances of being admitted off the waitlist are difficult to predict since the number of students admitted from the waitlist varies from year to year depending on the size/strength of the admit pool, number of admits who enroll, and other factors.
Before submitting additional information to the waitlist manager, remember:
- Every interaction we have with you moving forward can be a data point on your file,so make sure they are meaningful and value-added.
- Quality of information/communication is more important than quantity.
Let us know if you have any questions in the comments or via email. To our waitlisted candidates, we thank you for your continued interest in UCLA Anderson!
