« on: May 10, 2009, 03:55:56 AM »
This doesnt really matter, but i am just curious. I got accepted with scholarship at loyola, pepperdine, UNLV, USD. I got a reply from southwestern today saying i am waitlisted. Isnt this weird? are they not offering me a place because they knew i probably wouldnt attend?

Nope. Something is wrong with you or you application and they are hesitant to accept you.

ROFL; it's actually quite common for safety schools to reject/wait-list overqualified students they don't think are serious candidates.

Yield Protection.  Just another way to protect a "rankable" category.
