I know... but now that I've had a few hours to think about it, I received my PWL letter in December... so it's possible that when they created the preferred preferred waitlist -- let's say, in March -- they selected certain people on the PWL to move over to the PPWL, since the PPWL didn't exist earlier in the cycle.It could happen...

Basically you can distinguish the latter letter because it says at the end that "this is the first year we have created this group" and that they "anticipate more seats opening up." Anyone else in this group with me? I like our chances at this point.
How possible do you think it would be to receive any sort of fin aid coming off of the waitlist
This is possibly the stupidest thing I've heard of this entire cycle. I hope G-town gets yield screwed hard.
March 29, 2006"The committee on Admissions has reviewed your application and has placed your name on our Preferred Waiting List. Applicants on the Preferred Waiting List are among those we would like to include in our first year class. These applicants have the strongest credentials of all waiting list candidates and, as a result, receive priority consideration if spaces become available. Offers of admission to waiting list candidates may be made up until registration day in August.Although the number varies from year to year, typically fifty places open for waiting list candidates, some as late as registration day. Should a decision to admit you be made earlier, however, we will contact you right away. Please be advised that applicants on the Preferred Waiting List are not ranked. We realize that your circumstances may change in the coming months. An e-mail will be sent to you in May asking you to reconfirm your interest and update your contact information. Meanwhile, please update us on any approaching deadlines you may be facing. If you do not wish to have your application remain under consideration, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. On behalf of the Committee, we appreciate your patience and continued interest in Georgetown."
