Do we guarantee that we’ll help you craft a narrative that you’ll be happy with? Absolutely! Do we guarantee that you’ll get accepted at schools where you’ve been waitlisted? Absolutely not! Our goal is to help you pinpoint why you’ve been put on the waitlist, and surface and package experience that can help you get accepted.
It varies every year. The number of students getting off the waitlist changes every year depending on how many admits accept, reject, or defer their offer. Some years as many as 50% of the students on the waitlist are accepted whereas some years no students make it off the waitlist.
One thing’s for sure - you can’t control how many students will make it off the waitlist. All you can do is give it your best.
Your waitlist strategy is created by our superstar team of Graduate Coaches, writing experts, and former Admissions Committee members. They review the overall narrative, grammar, sentence structure, and leadership experiences while analyzing your application. The waitlist strategy is then packaged and communicated to you by a Graduate Coach, who is an alum of a top business school.
The fact that you made it to the waitlist means you have a really good profile and application. However, something was lacking. Our team reviews your entire application and pinpoints areas where there might have been gaps. We then suggest additional experiences that you can highlight or things you can do to overcome those gaps.
We have a separate waitlist strategy for each school since every school’s guidance on how to communicate with the Admissions Committee is different.
You will receive information about all that you need to provide in the confirmation email. In general, we recommend that you overshare - please provide everything from test scores to short answers and essays to reference letters (if available). Also, feel free to share any information that is not included in your application documents but you think will be helpful for us to know.
