Hello, I was recently waitlisted for Caltech which was honestly a very happy moment for me. I thought I was an instant rejection seeing other people haha. I’m trying to be optimistic and I’m writing a 1 page-long LOCI discussing any new updates as well as reaffirming that it is my #1 choice and that I’d attend in a heartbeat.
What are the chances that I’ll get off the waitlist? The document they sent me told me that in the past years 0-40 students have been accepted. Is there recorded data about this? Does anyone know how many students were accepted out of the waitlist and how large it was? What is the trend?
