Being put on the waitlist at your dream school isn't ideal. You were hoping to be accepted outright, after all. But it's not a death knell, either. Plenty of people are accepted off the waitlist each year, and there's no reason you can't be one of them. In fact, there are a lot of practical, actionable things you can do to increase your chances of getting off the waitlist in a favorable way -- and Hillary Schubach of Shine MBA Admissions Consulting is here to break them down for you.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How to think about the waitlist, and what it means from the admissions committee's perspective
  • Whether you're more/less likely to be waitlisted if you apply Round 1 vs. later rounds
  • What to do in the week immediately after finding out that you've been waitlisted
  • The #1 thing you should emphasize in your first correspondence with the school(s)
  • When and how often to communicate with the admissions committee during the waitlist period
  • Strategies for improving your profile so that schools want to select you off the waitlist
  • What to do if you find out you've been accepted off the waitlist
  • What to do if you find out you haven't been accepted off the waitlist
  • Tips for avoiding being put on the waitlist in the first place
  • And more!
  • By the end of this week's show you'll have a more optimistic view of the waitlist and know exactly how to proceed should you find yourself on it. Let's get you accepted!
