Podcast Episode 31: Waitlisted in R1? It’s Not Too Late to Increase Your Odds of Getting In

podcast episode 31: mba waitlist round 1

Unlike the black and white decisions some candidates have received in recent weeks—the coveted acceptances and the less popular rejections—we know many of you find yourselves in a murky gray area called the waitlist.  It may not feel like there’s much time left to change your fate in Round 1, but Clear Admit is here to tell you, there is hope!

In this latest episode of the Clear Admit podcast, Clear Admit Co-founder Graham Richmond and resident admissions expert, Alex Brown, break down just how the waitlist works and how schools use it. They also provide concrete advice on how you can make the waitlist work for you. What can you do now to change your odds? What can you expect timeline wise?  Should you deposit elsewhere while waiting? They discuss these questions and more. If you’ve been waitlisted at any of your target schools, you won’t want to miss this episode.
