Orientation is on Sunday. My file is still in review...how long can this go on ??? Nice to see a thread for people like me. This waitlist is killing me. Would going to the school to meet the Admissions Director help at this moment?

If you're on WL, does the LS have to notify you about a reject?  Or do you get to assume that once classes have started?

They are legally bound to tell you before the class starts. My school said they would only call if its an acceptance. So yes you can assume - no call = rejection. But you might wanna check this with your school.

you should try punching them in the face.  or threatening them with violence.

If you've just begun classes and your number one choice calls and says you are off the waitlist, would you drop classes and attend the other school ?
