    Yeah for Stanford my first choice major is public policy, but on a pre-med track.

    My first choice major is aeronautics/astronautics. I'm from the Midwest and currently committed to my state school.

    YoungBoy: I'm still confused on your logic. Since HumBio is seen as a precursor to premed, why would an abundance of HumBio waitlisters suggest Stanford is low on premeds ... wouldn't it be the opposite, i.e., that they've already accepted lots of HumBio majors and had to waitlist many others?

    It was a joke, so don't read into it too much. If we did try to dissect it, however, they may have purposely waitlisted so many biology majors and/or pre-med students because the yield for that field may not specifically be as high as their other student chosen majors. I said the statement as a joke, but there is an abnormally high number of bio/human bio majors here.

    YoungBoy: Thanks for that ... we all need a little levity these days. If you really want a laugh, go to the Berkeley WL board ... over 1200 uber neurotic posts, mostly about a totally irrelevant "glitch" in their portal. Lord Stanford, god of the waitlist, please save me from having to go to Berkeley.

    Does anyone else get this message after you click "Display" waitlist response form on the application portal:

    "Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed."
