Waitlisted at GW?

letmeinpls7letmeinpls7 0 replies2 threads New Member
Hi everyone! I just got my decision back from GW and I was waitlisted. I am an above average candidate for them and considered it to be my safety. All of my scores are above their ranges and I have a large expanse of extra curricular activities including debate, community service clubs, and a job. I am trying to figure out why I was waitlisted as I was very excited about the prospect of going there if it worked out financially. If anyone has any ideas please let me know! I’m so confused!

    likely they might have thought this was a "safety" school for you. If you let them know that if the $ works out that this is a top choice, that might help. I read that they will be wait listing more this year because they have no idea how yield will work out with everything going on.

    If could be anything, maybe they have enough kids form your state maybe you play flute and they need drummers, it really does not matter, what matters is do you want to go there or are you just stung they did not accept you and you thought it was a safety school? How much money do you need to work out? Waitlist is gonna be tough this years with most colleges pushing back deposit day to June 1.

    not yet. Heard twice so far from Admissions via text, asking if I'm still interested in being on the wait list. 1st text was 4th week of April, 2nd text last week.
