Hi,

I got a Wait list mail last week. What are the chances of converting a waitlist to an admit? any statistics regarding this from past years? Since Smeal is my dream school, i'm eagerly looking forward to a final decision.


Regards,

Meril

Hey Everyone

My name is Rohit. I have recieved a GA from Smeal and would be joining the Class of 2016 this fall. I also have admits from 5 other schools but Smeal surely is the best optiion. Please let me know if anyone else has decided to join the coming batch.

For people kept in waitlist for the scholarship award, I too was kept in the waitlist but then they awarded a two year GA.:)

Hi Vibhor,

I am Shilpa and I have applied to Smeal on the 10 Jan(id#914371455) and I am yet to give my TOEFL(Scheduled on Feb 22). I got in touch with Scott, the adcom director and he said that the chances of my admission will be slightly affected(in his words, "It will not diminish your chances significantly, but I wanted to make you aware of the consequences of an exam being delivered so late after the deadline"). So, do I expect to not receive any interview call from Smeal until the TOEFL score is sent? I just want to keep my expectations to the minimum.

Brief of my profile
GMAT: 680
WorkEx: 4 years til June ,2014
Decent grad score and I think my extra curriculars, recommendations and essays are pretty strong

Puys - I am fortunate to have a choice between WP Carey and Smeal, what would you recommend? Both offering same financial packages, Supply chain rankings are similar and similar target companies as well.


Current students - Feel free to pitch in!
