I was also waitlisted at Quinnipiac. I was surprised too, my scores are definately comparable to their medians. I think a lot of people who want to go to Uconn apply to Quin. as a back up school.

i'm curious how many times in an interview does an employer ask..."so what tier was your school ranked in us news and report the year you were admitted?"
Thank you Tony. You people are obsessed over these rankings. I think its more about how you do at the school you chose to go to, not about the school you go too. I mean, does someone who barely passes from a Tier one school have a better shot at getting a job then the person who places in the top 5 at a Tier 4 school?
If worst comes to worst and you don't get bumped up this semester, you can request a transfer to the full time program next year. You'll get it, unless you are in bad academic standing. Don't worry about the out of state thing, rumor has it it will acutally help you, UCONN is pulling for more of a national recognition, not to mention the extra tuition money. Good luck to you!
Actually, if you call the admissions office at most schools, they encourage you to send one. Make sure you add what you've been doing since you applied to the school and specifics about the school that you really like. Whether or not this actually works towards an acceptance....not sure, but I guess it can't hurt. Good luck.
