Does anyone know anything about the wait list for this year? How many? Chances of coming off?

    My son got an email today stating that RPI was offering admission to a limited # of people on the waitlist.

    "Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute plans to admit a very limited number of outstanding students who were offered a spot on our wait list in the coming week. Please reply to this email confirming your interest so that I can submit your name to our admissions committee. The committee will be reviewing applicants immediately, and we will be contacting students with their financial aid awards as they are admitted." He never returned the waitlist reply card when he received the decision. We didn't think the odds of admission were good. I don't think my son is interested in RPI. He liked it a lot, but he is not absolutley certain that he wants to major in science. He has chosen Geneseo. I think he's happy with that decision.
    But he's at school at the moment, so I can't ask him what he wants to do.

    i asked them about any information and they said that it was confidential and would not release anything to me....

    on a brighter note however, I just got accepted from the wait list! YAY!

    I know someone on the waitlist.. they haven't said anything about receiving any emails.

    I was hoping he would make it into RPI but he has decided to go to Sienna instead to major in physics.
