Whether you are on the waitlist or have been accepted, you can depend on Personal MBA Coach to continually guide and support you. Our MBA program waitlist consultants can help you learn how and when to reach out to get off the waitlist. If you have been accepted, Personal MBA Coach can advise you on which school best suits your goals.

Personal MBA Coach’s waitlist strategy and support includes the following:

Review and evaluation of your entire application.

Phone call to discuss specific recommendations for improving your chances of admission.

Editing of one MBA waitlist letter.

Guidance on what to do and when to do it during the waitlist process.

What Is an MBA Waitlist?

An MBA waitlist comprises candidates an admissions committee likes but is not ready to offer a spot. Admissions committees may place candidates on waitlists for reasons such as:

  • Too many applicants with similar profiles
  • A lack of confidence that candidates will attend
  • Addressable candidate weaknesses
  • A desire to see applicants in a future round before accepting candidates

Waitlists are often unpredictable. They will vary based on the school and individual situations. With MBA waitlist consulting, you can discover why you might have been placed on the waitlist and what you can do to improve your acceptance chances.

MBA Waitlist Strategy Services

Let Personal MBA Coach help you develop your MBA waitlist strategy. Our team can provide guidance and clarity so you can engage appropriately and continually improve your application.

Personal MBA Coach’s MBA application waitlist strategy and support services include:

  1. A review and evaluation of your application: Revisit your application to figure out why you were likely placed on the waitlist.
  2. A phone call to discuss recommendations: Identify potential weaknesses and receive recommendations for improving your admissions chances.
  3. Editing of one MBA waitlist letter: Receive feedback on one letter and learn the appropriate time to send it.
  4. Guidance on what to do and when to do it: Learn exactly what you should and should not do during the waitlist process.

While Personal MBA Coach assists many applicants in getting off the waitlist every year, our waitlist support services do not guarantee acceptance. Your chances of getting off the waitlist depend on individual circumstances and school needs.

Our expert MBA admissions consultants will provide advice on which program will best empower you to achieve your goals.
