    There's no standard form BNTsauce. Each university will provide particulars about their own particular WL program. No letter will indicate likelihood. It will probably ask if you'd like to remain on the WL -- meaning if slots open, would you like to be considered. You can of course, decline to remain on the WL.

    They'll tell you to secure a slot at another school that's admitted you. They may tell you to let the other school know that you're on the WL.

    Good luck.

    I don't know this info, but I suggest you start a thread on the Parents Forum asking for help. Someone there will know. Good luck!!
