Wait-list class of 2023

I haven't seen any thread for the applicants who chose to be on the wait list so here we go.
We are supposed to share any news, statistics, or decisions (hopefully good ones).
does anyone know the number of the admitted student from waitlist over the last years?

    Edited to add, WL stats from the previous year from year listed.

    2018-19:
    offered WL- 1857
    accepting WL placement- 907
    admitted off WL- 4

    2017-18:
    offered- 1656
    accept- 766
    admit- 38

    2016-17:
    offered- 2579
    accept- 971
    admit- 15

    2015-16:
    offered- 2876
    accept- 998
    admit- 17

    As you can see, they do take kids from the wait list every year but it's a bit of a Hail Mary pass.

    Here is the problem: they only need to go to the waitlist if the number of applicants who reject the school's offer exceeds the amount that they project. It is not a one-for-one prospect. Typically institutions accept many more people than they expect to attend. I've seen so many people say, "I chose another, so I'm opening a spot for a student on the waitlist," and, unfortunately, that is not typically the case.

    @pfdgjb I just got accepted from the waitlist! Make sure to demonstrate interest and build a good relationship with your admissions rep! They take that very seriously, other than that they said decisions will be revealed on the second week of May.

    @Vikarious
    congratulations,
    Did you got accepted today? via email, portal, or phone?
    Are you an international student or domestic?
    Did you receive a financial aid package?

    @pfdgjb I got an email about 5 minutes before I posted that saying “Updated Kenyon decision has been released”. I am a domestic student and did not apply for financial aid as I would not have qualified unfortunately.

    Today I got an email from an Admissions Officer stating that "At this point in time, we are not in a position to take any students off of our wait list. If that changes in the future, we'll be in touch with you and other interested students. Also, we certainly will update everyone on our wait list by the beginning of June."
    Not good news, sadly

    @allerbeste Did you receive the email after inquiring about your wait list status or was that just a general email sent by them?

    Guys I almost decided on not attending Kenyon as the costs simply would’ve been too high. But I sent a financial aid reconsideration form and they offered a generous grant to attend Kenyon, therefore I will likely be attending.

    To those that are on the waitlist and get accepted later or are currently still between colleges due to financials, do consider submitting a reconsideration form if financials are an issue. I almost would’ve missed out on attending Kenyon if I didn’t contact my admissions rep and received more information - learn from my (almost) mistake!

    Also, thank you @orangehippo!
