I just called and asked for an update on the waitlist--the lady was very nice and helpful. From my understanding of the conversation, it seemed like although the door on the waitlist has not been closed, they are basically only going to be accepting a TINY number of people, if anyone. Here's some of the the responses to the best of my recollection:
1) "We have high expectations for enrollment and we're in the process of deciding whether or not we're going to need more people."
2) "We're at the point where we will notify those who do not have a chance of acceptance. These will be going out soon." (it sounded like soon = "any day now"...I think they've already picked some students to drop and they're working on more, but that the notifications will go out when they're all done).
3) "There has been VERY little movement this year". (after asking if anyone else had been accepted this cycle).
Anyone else wanna call and share their perceptions?
