Here is some interesting info you might want.....

"We have two wait-lists, our priority list and our regular list. In an average yearm, 450 to 500 are offered places on our priority list, and 25 to 50 are admitted from it. Similarly, 200 are offered places on our regular list, and 10 to 20 admitted. Of course, the numbers admitted from our wait-lists vary dramatically from one year to the next." - Andy Cornblatt

The quote from Andy Cornblatt is a few years old. The hundred or so are those who ACCEPTED their waitlist. GULC probably sent out 450 or more offers and they only got 100+ back. I would say you guys have a really good chance at getting in if you send correspondence to GULC expressing interest. That is only my opinion though.....Good Luck, GULC is my dreamschool....maybe next year.  ;)

i just got an email from gtown today...its contents were a lil different from what was listed above.

Kevin,
are you applying FT or PT?  I had been placed on prior. WL for the evening program, and received that "one of our stronger applicants and placed you in a special waitlist group" emails but did not receive this particular one today. That info however, was in the last last email and I had responded to that email with a letter so..

Also, has any one experienced a change in contact.  My original letter had one person as my contact and now it is someone else.  I think it is administrative, but anyone with similar experience?

I have had three different people for contacts. In the letter it was one person. In the first email it was another. In the latest email today it was this third person. I have responded to all the emails they send me, faxed another letter of recommendation, etc. I'm not sure why the contacts keep changing unless maybe they're tiering their waitlist and assigning different people to different groups...?

Congratulations to all! - I am so sad I did not get into G-town this year (got my letter last week)  I applied the day of the deadline. I am happy that I did get into Mason however.  I am trying to figure out whether I should just go ahead and go to GMU or wait and apply early to G-town this fall for the following year.  I still have not heard from Vanderbilt but being that I want to live in D.C. it may be better to go to school there. Any suggestions?

Hi...I am new here, stuck on the PT regular waitlist (not priority).  I have some questions I was hoping someone could answer...
1) has anyone on PT heard anything, gotten any emails etc.?  It sounds like all the posts are from FT priority people, correct?
2) I know that the waitlisted candidates are all lumped together (PT and FT), but does anyone know the stats for PT waitlisters specifically?  Out of the hundreds put on the two lists how many of those people are PT?  Also, how many PT waitlisted people do they take - is it less that the 50 or so for FT priority and 10-20 FT from the regular waitlist?

Thanks!
