"It is also a strategy for Bklyn/cardozo to waitlist a certain percentage of students who they are sure will attend (thus lowering their yield, because waitlists aren't reported to USNews, which un turn affect their "Selectivity" numbers)".
Your logic here is flawed.Basically US NEWS sees three numbers--how many applied, how many admitted, how many enrolled...once admitted, whether directly by adcom or from waitlist, it's an admit, it counts in the numbers for US News and that's it.
In any case, a friend was told today that Brooklyn is overenrolled and that there's been no wl movement for about 10-12 days.So he's stuck on wl and doesnt want commute to outer boroughs.But two I know got offers last week--with money!--from Cardozo. Go figure!
