Waitlisted at Maryland

Waitlisted at Maryland
« on: February 05, 2007, 04:17:23 PM »
I just got a letter from the University of Maryland notifying me that I've been put on the 'preferred waitlist.'  This came as quite a surprise to me, as basically no one with my numbers (164/3.81) on LSN was rejected or waitlisted.  In fact, many people with much lower numbers than mine have been accepted.  I also have what I thought were pretty good soft factors and recommendations. Anyway, I'm not posting this to whine.  I was actually wondering if anyone here has had experience with this 'preferred waitlist' business, and, if so, how long does it usually take to get off it?  Thanks
