Title: Wake Wait List
Post by: odes on March 17, 2004, 01:28:12 AM
April 22nd is the first day Wake is making decisions regarding their waitlist...I wanted to post a poll to see if anyone is accepted off of the list.

I have been accepted to Wake and there is a good chance that I may not attend.  I'm sure there are others like me, so I've got to believe that some spots will open up.

I am on the waitlist as well.  I visited them in February and was told that last year more students accepted their offers of admission than usual, leading to a class with almost a whole extra section.  Some students complained.  Hence, this year they are being very conservative with their admits. Or at least that is what I was told.

Doesn't say whether or not they will pull from the waitlist but it gave me hope. :)

Thanks for the info....do you think that since we visited the law school it will help our chances if they start taking people off the list? What were your stats?

we have similar stats - 160 Avg/2.8...durty south on Lawschoolnumbers. i don't think that visiting hurt our chances any, if that is any consolation.  i think it's always good to demonstrate interest.

I was waitlisted at Wake and got into Berkeley. Go figure!

I will withdraw my application from Wake Forest next week. Maybe that will help someone move up on the list.  Good luck to everyone!

I was waitlisted on Wake, got into Tulane, so I already put my commitment deposit down for Tulane since the due date is coming up.... I guess I gotta eat that 200 bucks if Wake (by the grace of god) does let me in, post when you hear back.

162/2.9

got into wakeforest and tulane, but am leaning towards tulane....i know that wakeforest may be ranked slightly higher, but looking at the median private sector salaries after graduation, it looks like tulane's are significantly higher ($100,000 compared to $65,000), so i don't think you'll go wrong with tulane....

I'm in at Wake and waiting on Tulane.  If I get into Tulane I will probably go there.  Like the previous poster said: better job opportunities from Tulane.  Also, I think the two schools' reputational scores are very similar.

Cool, well it sounds like some of the people they accepted or wait listed aren't going to go. That is good news to my ears, but I bet there are like 4,000 people on the wait list and they will take 1 or 2 with my luck. (I know that is an exagerration..but you know how the wait list blues are)

 ??? Any updates on Wake Forest waitlist? Any one not going, know any new information or is on the list with me please feel free to respond.  8) Hopefully some of us will get in.

I either haven't heard or was waitlisted from the schools I was considering ahead of Wake, so it looks as if that's where I'm heading this fall.  Good luck to all the waitlisted.

I checked with them last week, and someone told me they wouldn't be doing anything with the waitlist until after Apr. 15 at the earliest, since that's their deposit deadline.

I'm pretty certain at this point that I'm going to decline their offer...unless I get a good package from them, which doesn't seem likely.  Hopefully this will also free up a spot on the waitlist. Good luck to everyone -

Thanks for the update, I sent them a transcript from Winter 2004 Quarter (I got a 3.6 think this will help?), letter of continued interest, and some additional recommendations. Did they mention how many deposits they received by today....i.e. can they tell if the waitlist will be used by now?

The Director of Admissions emailed me and told me that they will be making decisions regarding the wait list starting April 22nd. Couple of questions: 1) Does that mean that they are going to take people off the wait list this year? and 2) Does this email mean that I am on their radar or is this common for them to email wait listed candidates? (Obviously I need responses from others on the wait list to determine this) Thanks for any info.

Their deposit deadline is April 15th so I'm sure the school itself won't know anything until after this date.  FWIW, I withdrew my deposit(the day after sending it) to Wake.  Hope that opens a spot up for you or others on the WL.

odes...
I am on the waitlist at Wake and have not heard anything through e-mail or mail since the initial notification.  I have not initiated any contact with them, either.

 :D Well since you withdrew your deposit there might be ONE opening for people on the wait list. I wonder how many people are on the waitlist and how many of those people are seriously interested in attending the school. These questions prolly are impossible to answer. Anyway, the director of admissions did mention that April 15th is their first deposit deadline and that they will be doing "something" with the waitlist. Hmmmmmm....when I got waitlisted I visited the school, wrote a letter, got two more recs and sent them an updated transcript. I hope this helps.

I was waitlisted there. The stupid idiots didn't even send me a letter of intent, they just sent me a letter saying 'by the way you're on the WL'. BTW I didn't get an email.
Had they sent me a letter I would've said no thanks, but since they didn't they can eat my *&^%. :D

I'm confused....so they just sent you the letter saying you were on the waitlist right? I don't understand why your pissed. If you are offerred a spot will you take it? It seems from your response that you wouldn't.

Hopefully some of us will get some calls beginning Thursday...I started a poll to see if any us will be taken for their incomming class.
