There's hope! I'm a lurker around here, but I registered just so that I can give some hope to my fellow waitlisters.
I got a call from Southwestern on Friday (July 25). An Admissions counselor asked me what my interest level was in attending Southwestern this Fall. I told her I was extremely interested, she laughed, and told me to expect a packet in the mail in the next few days. I asked her if this meant I was accepted and she said she wasn't allowed to say anything over the phone, but it looked pretty good.
After an anxious weekend, the packet came in the mail on Tuesday (July 29). I'm in!
Just wanted to let you all know not to give up!
Now to withdraw from my back-up school and make someone else on a waitlist happy...
