Yeah someone in my mba class a couple of years back also got waitlisted. You can hope that someone with banking interviews don’t want to go for MBB anymore and the spot opens up

There were Bain waitlists before. I knew of classmates who got the WL when I was recruiting a few years back

Just continue to communicate your interest. People get off the waitlist every year. I know several in my office that were waitlisted and are now strong performers

It’s amazing how similar consultants and kindergarteners are. Neither seem to understand the principle of patience.

Lol, there’s no need to be rude.

I've been working in cosmetics mainly on the customer service side, currently senior support for the CS team and have experience doing CS on social media.
