They didn't lie to me -- I called and asked if there was a priority wait list and they said yes.
But that doesn't mean I think they've been in any way forthcoming with information. I would have liked it if they'd provided a little more information when they sent that letter asking if we wanted to remain on the wait list -- letting me know I was in the second tier (or lower) on the wait list.
In any case, it's made me decide not to go there, should they ever get around to making me an offer.
Yeah, I'm kinda pissed that they've been lying to us about there not being a PWL. They could at least have the common courtesy to let us know that they don't want us that much.
