yes, it sucks because it allows the flicker of hope to remain, even though i know my freakin chances of getting off the waitlist are slim. and it has me doing my LOCI-dance. and worried about how i will have to explain myself since i've been asking people for extra recommendations, and it'll be like, thanks for helping me try if this doesn't work out.
nonetheless, good luck to all of us waitlisters. let's hope for some good news in may/june.
