    Is everyone who goes to the waitlist form being offered the option of Spring 2019? And if so, doesn't that mean potential several thousand people trying to get those 60 Spring admit spots?

    Looks like only two colleges offer spring admission, and the program is brand new this year, so no history to check.

    From what I've hearing/reading at this point, it's offered to anyone waitlisted at those two schools... my s is waitlisted at CAS which it says there will be 30 spring spots... seems like horrific odds either way? Uggggh.

    I think they'll offer way more than 30 though. Yield will be very low, since they encourage students to enroll in other colleges for the Fall. These kids are all top students, so the college they enroll for the Fall will also be great colleges. Once kids get used to the college and start making friends, it's pretty hard to make them move to Ithaca in January. If they target 30 enrollment, they should send out at least 100, maybe 200 acceptance.

    Does anyone know if Cornell advises for or against sending an additional letter of rec?

    @rossperot412 well Cornell sent me an email about the waitlist today, and in it they said the advise against sending an additional rec letter. they do recommend sending a letter of update, however

    What school did you get waitlisted from? @cardust
  • bogeyorparbogeyorpar Registered User Posts: 762 Member
    Which colleges sent emails to waitlisted applicants?

    Also, where do you send letters/updates? To an email address or upload from the old portal?

    Does anyone know the breakdown of numbers of waitlist by school? Is the re-evaluation process specific to filling seats in specific departments, or will they care more about seats in the different schools in general?

    Anyone get a confirmation email after completing the online waitlist form?

    Does anyone know about CALS for the waitlist.... It would be nice to know how many they wait list from each college and how many they project to accept so we could know whether there is any chance
