I met with Dean Hall last week on Tuesday (8/14) and he told me the same thing, that they are over enrolled. I asked if that was common, and he said it had been in the last couple years, but (again it was a bit hard to get a straight answer) it did sound like even in the past when they were over enrolled at this point that they took some but very few people off the wait list. I didn't ask if they offered a spot to many people and most couldn't take it because of the late notice, or if it was more than one spot. He did tell me that Aug. 28, the first day of orientation, would be the last day that people would be called off the waiting list. So that means next week is our last chance. They aren't calling people through the first week of class like I think I heard somewhere else.
Hope that helps, good luck!! I am still holding out a very thin thread of hope, but am not getting my hopes up remotely high at this point.
