What are the chances it will be moving this late in the summer?  Anyone heard any news?

I haven't heard anything other than the email a few weeks ago saying I was still on the list.

Make it 4.

I have to say I was encouraged by the last WL admit on LSN (guy/gal with a 165).

Gives hope to us in that score range!

Count me in as well.  Just to make myself a little more crazy, was anybody else called by the admissions office a couple of months ago, with the message that they were on the short list of waitlisted candidates to be accepted, and that we should email Dean Hoye to confirm our interest?  I got this call and emailed Hoye right away, but was not later accepted.  This, suffice to say, was not a pleasant experience.

that sounds traumatic.  i was under the impression that anybody who got a call like that and emailed the dean was later admitted (I did not get one, but all the WL admits seem to have received one).  probably doens't apply to us, but that seemed like a total yield-protect measure to me.

I spoke with someone in the admissions office today, it wasn't the greatest news.  She said realistically they only expect to admit a few more people off the waitlist, that basically the class is full.  Also found out that orientation begins Monday, August 14th.

The dings are coming.  I can feel it.

I'm holding out for one more week.  After that, I'm pulling my name out of the hat and moving on.  So here's to the slightest bit of hope.

What is everyone else planning on doing?  Is everyone planning on giving up in a week or waiting it out?
