    Ok..l guess D got the background wrong then (maybe unsurprisingly given there have been a rash of waitlist admits in her class the last week or so)

    Per official Twitter account from UVA admissions from 2 days ago-arts and sciences and engineering wait lists are closed. Nursing, kinesiology, and architecture waitlists are still open, unless something has just changed on that .

    Mount Holyoke WL thread includes an email sent by admissions indicating that the WL was expected to close this week (maybe next week? Commentary on the timeline wasn't entirely clear).

    Boston College admissions teams told people they would perhaps have news this week. Today they said next week.

    But In all cases the overriding theme was at this point it looks unlikely any will be used.

    That can change of course. But it’s the latest intel. But zero is tough for those waiting. 16 two years ago and 75 last year. I was thinking 50 spots which would be great with such a large list still actively waiting. Not sure if transfers is an indication of anything correlated to Wl. But 1580 transfer apps resulted in 75 admissions. 4.7%. Maybe overenrolled or less sophomore melt leading to more conservative admissions. Just a guess.

    @JoRocks posted on the Boston College waitlist thread today.

    “Got an email this morning from an associate director of admissions. " As of today, it is highly unlikely that we will be taking any students off the waitlist."

    Would it be appropriate for me to email the college I'm waitlisted at to check on the status?

    @karstar. Very short and letting them know you still are incredibly interested and would they have any sense of where things are wouldn’t hurt. You may not hear anything or get the generic admissions response.

    Perhaps start with “you know how incredibly busy they are. However, I am incredibly interested in attending u Alaska and” .... that sort of thing.

    Short polite and reminding them in a soft way that you are committed to attending if admitted.
