I can currently on the waitlist at 5 T-14 schools.
 
Is there usually good waitlist movement regarding URMs as schools try to balance out their classes?

Is there a good chance I could be picked up off the waitlist and I should just ride it out or should I just look at these waitlists as soft rejections?

What are my chances?

Should I be targeting any other schools?

Apps are ready but $$ is tight.
 
Do I have a chance at getting fee waivers to any of these schools?
 
Does anyone know how soon after the December test are fee waivers offered?

thanks so much
