Is Bucknell's Waitlist Ranked?

Question is the name of the thread. Just wondering if it's ranked or they take the time to go back over 900 apps just for a couple spots. Thanks for the response!

    I called today, not ranked...they said it goes like this: if a spot in say BME opens up, then they look at their waitlist to see who fits the qualifications, but of course, there is going to be more than one person. What major did you apply for?

    I had Biology as my intended major tragically.

    Sameee but whatever, at least we weren't outright rejected. Though with things like "Courtesy waitlist" floating around, one never knows. I still really like the school, if only I had done ED

    On another thread I was told that Bucknell started taking kids off the waitlist last Thursday.
    S emailed them yesterday and was told that no decision had been made yet, he would hear from them by May 5. Does not seem too promising...

    I was just taken off the waitlist today; I sent in a whole bunch of stuff that I thought might help last week right when they started to relook apps...sooo, to everyone else waiting, don't lose hope yet :]

    Hope to see you in the fall!

    ('m still pinching myself to make sure it's real.)
