This waitlist is killing me!
« on: June 27, 2008, 05:53:45 PM »
Hi guys,

I am having a hard time with this waitlist thing and just wanted to hear how everybody is handling theirs.
I have a snowball's chance of getting in off my waitlist (hundreds of people with higher numbers before me) so it is particularly ridiculous that it is haunting me to this extent.

I am in the middle of packing up and selling my house (in the town where my waitlist school is located) and it's like I am moving through concrete.

I love the school I am committed to, but the waitlist thing is really weighing on me.

Anybody else?

 I am wondering if they rejected me, would they let me know as well?! All this waiting is torturing me....even the mail man knows I am waiting for that letter. LOL

Are you guys set on riding them out until the bitter end? I guess I am but whooooo is that distracting.

I hate that it is almost July and I am STILL stalking the mailman every day!

So I am currently on the wait-list for both Marquette and Wisconsin.  I am from Milwaukee, and I am just hoping that I can get taking off the wait-list from one of these schools.  Preferably, soon, I am lacking patience now. 
Does anybody know the seat deposit deadlines for either of these schools.  This has been such a nerve wrecking process.  Cheers

Wisconsin doesn't have a seat deposit, but asked for decisions from everyone by May 15.  They also ask that if anyone decides not to attend that the school is contacted as soon as possible.
