Craft a WL plan that is considered and follows all their rules and then STICK to it. Dont go crazy ex-SO on them, or go silent. There is a moderate, confident, and convincing middle ground.

What did you get on your GMAT when you submitted and when you retook?

700/730

Accept that your interview didnt go as great as you think and reflect o n opportunities to improve for the future
