Soojin Kwon Koh, director of admissions at the Ross School of Business, recently revealed an important piece of intel on the Ross Admissions Blog: your professionalism and judgment while you’re on the waitlist are part of their decision process. Flooding the office with calls regarding your status will not endear you to the admissions committee. And that goes for applicants, too.
“We know you’re interested in Ross by virtue of your application to us. There’s no need to send us emails (or insist on meeting with us) to remind us of that fact. Finding multiple ways to remind us of that outside of your application will certainly make you stand out…in a way that you may not have intended,” she writes.
But, Soojin warns, don’t assume this is a blanket rule for all schools, as each has its own waitlist policy. As anxious as applicants are to hear something definitive about their status, this is one piece of advice is pays to heed.
