    I have what's a probably a dumb question. Is it appropriate to ask the school for the names of those who are before m on the waiting list. would the school even release such information.

    I couldn't see any (ethical) reason why you would ever need to know who else is on the waitlist.

    Great question!

    It is common to know who else is part of a job-interview with you in Ireland, so I don't see why whatever Irish school you applied to wouldn't tell you.

    You can find a list of accredited programs:here Do NOT choose a "program" or "format" as these features are quite buggy. 24% don't list GMAT
