Just got my waitlist letter from American (that makes the WL total 5). So is it common for a school to say that if they call you to take you off the waitlist you have to make an immediate decision? that seems pretty stressful to me, especially being on so many waitlists. I like to have all the cards in front of me when i make a decision, but it doesn't look like thats going to happen. What is the general reputation of American in D.C.? I'm new to the board, so i'm not sure if that question has been answered elsewhere.
It must be something new that they're doing this year at American. When I was admitted off the WL last year, I think I had about a week to decide (and that was in late-July!!).
