    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?

    @winky1, no , no confirmation email, and don't know where to send LOCI or any other updates. Did you receive confirmation? If so, are there instructions inside?

    No confirmation here either. Will have her call to see where to mail/email her loci.

    Would we be at a disadvantage if we do not send updated grades? @oldfort

    I am not an adcom, so I can't give you a definitive answer, but my kid was advised by her GC to do all of that and she did get off both Cornell & Duke's WL. Of course there were kids who got off by doing nothing.
    One thing to keep in mind is if Cornell over admitted and doesn't go to its WL then it really doesn't matter. I would encourage all of you to fall in love with your current options and move on emotionally.

    If you get off the wait list, do they give you the financial info before requesting your decision? The whole reason my son didn't do early decision was the financial situation.

    Is it still FA blind when colleges pick students out of the waitlist?

    Obviously the chances of getting of the waitlist are very bad... so does anyone know if cornell offers some people guaranteed transfer options off the waitinglist... ever?

    @M_51222 Awesome! I wasn't sure if they only gave it to people who got rejected initially.
