Any waitlisted students out there waiting to get off the limbo?

    Please make sure to include the following details:
    Whether or not you've accepted the waitlist position

    Getting off a waitlist is tricky, but definitely possible. It also depends on the school you are waitlisted for, and how many students who are extended offers end up accepting them. I got off the waitlist for UC Berkeley, by writing a good waitlist essay, and expressing why it was my number 1 choice.
    (PS: Do not repeatedly email admissions expressing your interests, as this might tick them off)
