mbaMission Releases New Waitlist Guide!

Finding yourself on your target school’s waitlist can be frustrating, but keep two things in mind as you prepare to play the waiting game. First, being waitlisted is actually an endorsement of your candidacy, and second, there is a right way and a wrong way to manage the waitlist process, depending on the school’s policy. In our mbaMission Waitlist Guide, we explain the difference between an “open” waitlist policy and a “closed” one and help you understand when and how to continue to communicate with the school to increase your chances of ultimately gaining a spot in its next incoming class.

The mbaMission Waitlist Guide can help you navigate through an often bewildering waitlist process, providing direction, advice on proper communication and offering two sample letters—with notes—as models of appropriate and compelling correspondence.
