What To Do (and Not Do) When An Admission Event is Full

Have you tried to sign up for one of our MBA Admission events and found that it was already full? You may have wondered to yourself, "Should I bother putting myself on the waitlist?" Well, the answer is "yes," and here's why. We frequently are able to get additional space at the venue and can let in some or all of the people on the waitlist. Sometimes we add a second session at a different time on the same day, and we give the folks on the waitlist the first shot at signing up.

How about just showing up without registering? Not a good idea. Many of our events are hosted at private companies whose security staff will turn away anyone not on the registration list. Frustrating for you and disappointing for us.

We've held over 70 public events in the past three months, and are offering two dozen more during the month of September in Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and throughout the United States. Find an event near you and register now. But, if you find that the event you want is full, do add yourself to the waitlist. We don't want to miss the chance to meet you.
