I am sort of confused as to why I was waitlisted. I had a 4.3, a 2150 SAT, and great EC's. Post your stats, fellow waitlisters.

    GPA: 3.46
    UC: 3.78
    SAT: 2170
    ACT: 33

    Volunteered in another country. Sports. Clubs.

    I guess my personal statements really spoke to them. If they feel like they know the person behind the numbers, it might boost chances.
