Waitpissed @seattle
« on: April 09, 2005, 07:44:47 PM »
Yeah, they gave me the shaft. Couple questions:

Does anyone know what kind of chances i have of getting off this waitlist?

Should i do as they ask and send in supplemental info. I have no more letters of rec. because my old professors are practically senile. and i have not been doing anything extremely interesting cause i have been preparing for LS. oh well, que sera, sera.

I guess it's better than being rejected. Oh wait...no it's not.

Ragnar -

I am in the same boat.  Deferred at Seattle U, waitlisted at my #2.  I have sent in seat deposits for #3 and #4.  *sigh*  I though making a decision would be easy, since I thought I'd have definite yes or no decisions from the schools.  Oh well.  I can hold out until at least July, maybe a bit later.  We'll see.   :-\

Anyway - I sent 2 additional LOR and an updated resume.  I also wrote a letter, sort of a supplement to the original Personal Statement.  I acknowleged the weakness(es) in my file and gave them reasons to dismiss them.  I also began a new job in January, so I actually had some "real" new information to share.

Good Luck!

I think you'll pretty much have to wait for people already accepted to turn them down.
