I wish they would include an update about how many people they've taken from the wait list, and even though I know it's not going to happen, I kind of want to know why they picked them over me. Oh well.

Based on lsn, it seems that they may have placed a lot of people on their waitlist.  I received their letter today asking if I would like to remain on the WL.  Sure I'll stay on it.  It makes me think of a poker game where I've got long odds holding a pair of 2's but feel like I should stay in the game to see if anything develops.

Hey guys,
  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!

Congrats on getting in  :)
I'm thinking of calling them and asking them to put me on the priority wait list, just to see what they say.

Thanks :)  I decided not to accept my offer of admission so hopefully one of you will hear from them soon.

Thanks for withdrawing!  Best of luck with UCLA before you move to Chicago...

I asked to be put on the priority wait list and they said it doesn't work that way. No big surprise there, I guess.   :-[

I think it's fantastic you had the balls to ask!  Were they suprised?

I don't know. I e-mailed them and got a reply by e-mail. I'd like to think they were caught off guard. It's the least they could do after stringing me along for months.

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.
