    andrewm:

    I hope you get in! I know it's so hard to see all these acceptances on here and then get waitlisted. That happened with my son on one of his schools last year. There are certainly lots of kids who didn't get in but of course they tend to not post.

    Did you consider calling them and telling them you really want to go?

    What other schools are you considering?

    Im in at the University of Delaware. If I found out I was in at Denison, it would be equally desireable for me to go there. Denison and UD would my top 2. However, I can't keep waiting for Denison to make a descision past the end of April because I need to send my deposit to UD. If they wait too long to send a positive descision I will have very little time to consider the two options...

    Yeah waitlising stinks cuz the only way you are safe it to send a deposit to the school you were accepted in and wait it out! You loose your deposit if the waitlisted school accepts you and you decide to go there. You are not obligated to either one. We are in the same boat. May be out $300 but whatcha gonna do??

    andrewm: Call Denison! Ask to speak to the admissions person for your region.

    You probably already know this, U Del is a GREAT school. Kids love it there! My first son goes to Denison, but my second will definitely apply to U Del (for engineering). We have a good friend there and he loves it.

    Good luck to you!
