    Hm. Well this is just tense. I wonder how many they sent out last week.

    I hate to say this but based on what I've heard, I think they're done with the waitlist now :/ I know they had a great turn out with people accepting their acceptances in the first place so they didn't have much room for the waitlist students :( I am not 100% sure but that's the chatter I've heard. But best of luck to you all, I know everything will work out in the end and you will all be happy :)

    Oh darn..really? Who'd you hear this from? :(

    Oh gee. Well they just recently said that they received my CSS form. Does that mean they're still reviewing me? I also called in on April 25th and sent them a nicely written letter with updates about how I've been doing and what I've been doing and expressing my interest. I really believe I was waitlisted because my school sent my transcript the day before decisions came out after I kept begging them to send it for ages. I just hope that I get in. This is my dream school. ;( And I hope they're not done accepting people off the waitlist :(

    I heard it from my college counselor who said he heard it from admissions. They don't have the capacity to accept a lot of people off the waitlist and they've already done two rounds and everyone they accept off the waitlist accepts the position so I'm pretty sure they're done. Sorry.

    Wow so why did they update my application page yesterday? Anyway, will they be sending an email or something?
  • EDhelp123EDhelp123 Registered User Posts: 74 Junior Member
    I'm sure after the class is made they will send out emails to all the wait listed students and let them know they have not been accepted.

    There go my dreams :(
  • KDavs95KDavs95 Registered User Posts: 264 Junior Member
    There's no need to give up hope. That may or may not be true. Just keep doing what you're doing and wait patiently. Someone posted on the 18th that they were accepted (4 days ago) and on the 10th. So if they accept anyone else, I'd assume they'll be calling more people up this friday. We can't assume anything and just because someone's counselor "heard' something, doesn't mean it's exactly true. Keep hoping and if they are finished, at least you tried your hardest... :)

    I called the office and they told me that the waitlist is still active and they're admitting on a rolling basis.
  • KDavs95KDavs95 Registered User Posts: 264 Junior Member
    yay! So there is hope :3 I called yesterday and they still haven't received my letter. Should I just send it via email as well?
  • kachhankachhan Registered User Posts: 51 Junior Member
    I don't know what e-mail you could send it to as all my documents have been faxed. But you should send it again just to be safe and call them an hour or two after you fax it to make sure they received it properly and its been added to your file. Good luck to everyone still waiting! :)

    Does anyone know if the waitlist is need-blind or not?
  • KDavs95KDavs95 Registered User Posts: 264 Junior Member
    i hope it is need-blid. though, once hey see how much my family income is, I probably will get nothing. I hope I get at least a little bit. That's if I'm accepted. I'm starting to think I'm not getting off of the list anyway :(
