Wait List Chances

I know every school is different, but in general, what are the chances of getting in off the wait list at a top 25 school?

Is it a total long shot, or is there some sort of reasonable chance?

    Go to the Common Data Set for the school and see what their past record is for WL acceptances. Be sure to look at several years data as numbers can vary greatly from year to year.
