the lady on the phone did tell me that they have 3-5 spots available this round.


3-5 acceptances being awarded today (including yours) or 3-5 post-today?

Wow.  I expected the number to be higher. 
Well, congrats again.  What are you leaning towards?  It's a nice decision to have to make.

I received the wait list email as well. Glad to see that I don't have to change my waiting meditation.

Thanks for the info newposter, I'm surprised you weren't accepted from the the start.

hehe, yeah, i got lucky but thanks! i don't think i'm leaning to either at this point. i sort of put a school out of my mind after i sent stuff in so i'll be doing a bit of pros and cons tabulation on penn this weekend. the nice thing is that it'll be easier for me to move my stuff over there!

Just got an email...

"We have now completed our first review of all candidates on the waitlist.  We made a few additional offers of admission and released several applicants from the waitlist.  If you are receiving this email, then we are offering you the opportunity to remain on the waitlist should additional seats become available in the class over the duration of the summer.  We will continue to closely monitor the status of the incoming class and will be prepared to make additional admissions offers should incoming students withdraw between now and the first day of classes, September 6."

I guess it could be worse but this sucks!

I got the same e-mail today.  Has anyone actually been rejected from the waitlist recently?

I got the same email. There was a thread going a week or so ago -- it seemed that they did release a number of people from the wait list.
Yes: UCLA, Northwestern
No: Berkeley, Harvard
Maybe: Penn, Columbia, NYU
