Hi all! Thought I’d start a thread for those of us who were waitlisted since I haven’t seen one! Let’s talkkk

Hey there! I got waitlisted too. I think it’s quite an accomplishment actually - my friend who got into Yale Princeton and Dartmouth got flat out rejected by Brown.

I’m staying on the WL and hoping for the best but tbh I would be just as happy, if not more, to attend Amherst (where I think I’m headed). Lots of similarities in terms of academic excellence and flexibility and Amherst focuses solely on undergrad!

I’m staying as well, I was so shocked I even got waitlisted I was completely set up for a year Temple, which in comparison is like the polar opposite in every way. So glad just to be waitlisted, I guess we’ll see what happens.

Fingers crossed for both of us! I am really unsure whether I would choose Amherst or Brown so maybe a reject from the WL would be good for me! Do you know if it is better to send a LOCI ASAP or can we wait until later April?

Im talking to an alum tonight asking some advice I will let u know what I hear! I’d assume time does matter but that’s only based on my own personal opinion

I just spoke with my college counselor who said there isn’t really an urgency. I would guess we should do it by May 1 though.

Waitlisted here too! Sadly I’m an international asking for a lot of fin. aid, so I fear my chances are minimal :frowning:

Yo guys,

also waitlisted as an international applicant. Did you guys upload any LOCI’s and additional recommendations to your portal?

I want to do it, but I’m not sure who to address my LOCI to. Any suggestions??

Address it to the Brown Admissions Team. I’d assume they have info about how to submit your LOCI somewhere.

Oof. I just submitted my LOCI (bc my counselor told me there wasn’t a rush). Hope I am still considered lol.

Brown looks to be need-aware for waitlist this year.

In the past, they explicitly mentioned in the FAQ that it was need blind. Doesn’t have that same line this year.

Just drooping in and seeing what’s going on. I found this article interesting: Deferred admits take road less traveled

Do you guys think that the acceptances from the waitlist will be more or less this year? I know last year, they admitted a bunch of students off the waitlist.

1 Like

no because they are going to send out all of their acceptances off the waitlist by the end of June (according to the official statement from Brown) which is right when my school ends. So I couldn’t send my final grades even if I wanted to.

anyone know any inside info on the waitlist?
