Has anyone on Colby's waitlist heard from them? I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

    @Almostdone1 I am hoping for you but my DD who enrolled at Colby received an email saying that they were extending the deadline for deferrals and first semester gap year option. My hunch is that they are overenrolled :(

    Rumors that I have heard from my current Colby student is that many more students have accepted than I’m guessing their target of 500. Not even sure if that is the target anymore. I’d be shocked if they went to the waitlist. Current freshman class is over 550 and the incoming class is rumored to be above that. Not sure where they are going to put everyone. At least the new downtown dorm will help.

    This is what happened last year as well. I do think it evens out between the kids that go away first semester to the program in France. My son's roommate left (asked to leave ) and he gained a roommate that was abroad.

    @Waldo755 Why was your son’s roommate asked to leave?

    @wisteria100 I was being gentle in my wording -- his roommate apparently did not attend classes and therefore was asked to leave for academic reasons.

    @class22 Do you know if Colby took anyone at all off the waitlist?

    @dreamcatcher3 's post suggests that there will be little to no WL activity this year. But I am guessing that at some point, Colby will send out something saying that there will be no further activity at some point.
