    The college does not know for sure until the May 1st deadline passes and they can add up all the people that accepted. Remember that Bentley has a low yield- meaning that a lot of people who get accepted will not go. the vast majority will not go - like 80%. They know this ahead of time so accept more kids than they can take. The weightlist is used to fill the last spots. You should expect to hear something in mid May. Just make sure you lock down something by sending in your deposit to a school you would attend. You need to treat a weightlist as a reject more than an acceptance because the odd of coming off are not that high.

    Personally I feel you should go to the school that showed you the love and would like to have you. Rejects and weighlists are never fun to receive but I feel it is best to just move on and not to expend anymore energy on them.

    Good luck.
