Does anyone know how many OB students Foster (university of Washington) is admitting and whether it has sent out OB invites? The e-mail said they met today

They sent me a email that I am on their wait list today.

Just got my first acceptance!! Yale SOM marketing, behavioral track -- email came this morning from one of the profs on the admissions committee.  It's so validating to have my efforts recognized by s

Just received an admissions call from Stanford GSB -- looks like there's no interviews this year!

Just received acceptance from CBS Management!!! Still can’t believe it!!!!

Hi! I’m the person that asked about NYU Marketing acceptances on the results board about whether accepted applicants have committed/made their decisions. Would appreciate me if you could respond or dm me here. Thanks!

 

a general question, how should I email schools that i have interviewed with? Just ask for an update on my status? Is it better to state whether I have acceptances from other schools?

 

Also, if i havent gotten an interview at this stage, is it more or less safe to say that I won’t be getting one?

Has anyone heard from UNC Kenan-Flagler, UCLA Anderson, Maryland, or USC Marshall for OB? I haven't seen anything posted in the results so just checking here to see if anyone has any info before I reach out to the schools. Thanks!

I haven't heard anything from USC Marshall. Have you reached out to them yet asking for an update?

Someone I know is on the shortlist for OB at USC Marshall. They heard about this several weeks ago.

Hi guys! I applied to more than 20 top 40 Finance PhD programs in the U.S. and have been interviewed by 7 of them. I was waitlisted by Yale, rejected by around 10 programs, and have not been admitted by any of them. Below are the programs that I heard back from them.

UNC Chapel Hill - Interviewed for the first round; didn't get in the 2nd round

UW Seattle - One-way interview via SpirkHire; Still waiting for response

Boston College - One-way interview via SpirkHire

UT Austin - Interviewed; was told I am in the finalist; waiting

CMU - Interviewed; waiting

Rice - 2nd round interview next week

Rochester - rejected after interview

Yale - waitlisted; no interview

I didn't see anyone discussing about the Finance PhD applications/results here. I guess I will be the first one haha. Is there anyone else still in the tortuous waiting game? Can you share any updates/news you have about the programs mentioned above? (Has anyone heard back from UCI and Maryland?)

Another question: Do you guys know the yield rate for Yale PhD program? How is my chance getting into Yale? Is there anyone else also waitlisted/offered?

Thank you guys! Good luck on all of us!

Former faculty at Yale SOM here , as you are well aware, this track is profoundly competitive-yield typically hovers around 90 percent, give or take a couple of ticks.

So how is everyone doing? How are decisions coming along? Personally, I am struggling to make a choice and want to have this process done with.

I'm with you!  I declined a few offers, am holding onto one, and am waiting for one last program to release a decision. Planning to accept the offer in hand if I don't hear from them soon.

It will certainly be nice for the process to end in the next few weeks.

I'm trying to decide between 2 offers right now, but I keep waiting to hear back from one school that's my dream school. I want to just make my decision and enjoy my time before the fall too.
