This is probably not what you want to hear, but there is in fact a priority waitlist. I got the email asking if I wanted to be put on the list. I wrote back saying that I did and then a couple days later I received an email saying I had been accepted. I just receivied my packet in the mail. I am still debating if I am going to attend though because of financial reasons (they give no scholarship to those accepted off the waitist). I have to decide in the next 2 days so I will let you know.... and I'm still holding out for UCLA!
