**Johns Hopkins 2014 Waitlist Thread**

<p>soo . . . waitlist guys (: lol what do you think of our chances?</p>

<p>Close to 0%. I'm glad some opportunities opened up for my safety school. I'm pretty excited either way, but getting off Johns Hopkins waitlist would be the best.</p>

<p>Duke has already started to take people off the waitlist. They play this game every year: admitting fewer number of students initially to have a low admission rate and then taking off people off the waitinglist even before May 1. Hopkins should learn to play the admission game too.</p>

<p>I have never pictured Hopkins as a school to "play the game" but I'm not sure what happens there. I think schools that "play the game" don't get a good rep because of it.</p>

<p>"Johns Hopkins University says it is only taking a handful at most, about the same as last year." :/</p>

<p>Colleges</a> admit few students off the wait list</p>

<p>^^ incorrect - that article is from Tuesday, May 16, 2006</p>

<p>last year they didn't accept anyone off the waitlist.. hopefully this year will be different. when do you think we'll start hearing back?</p>

<p>ahah sikeee haha thanks for catching that wealth! :D
i was looking at today's date . . . hehe ^^;;</p>

<p>So I went to JHU after getting my wait list notification and I talked to the director of admissions and here's the situation:</p>

<p>*Last year, they had a surprising amount of students accepted their offers of admission
*They received a bigger class than they could take (they no longer can guarantee housing for juniors and seniors, bigger class sizes, it's a mess)
*SO the guy (Daniel, I believe) told me that they purposefully admitted FAR less students this year so they wouldn't have that same problem
*They expect they'll have a large gap they'll need to fill with wait list students
* He guaranteed me that JHU ABSOLUTELY WILL be taking off their waitlist...they just don't know how many students</p>

<p>So there's still hope for us! We can do it!! (:</p>

<p>thanks for telling us this marie!!!! (:</p>

<p>just wondering.. does the school recalculate it's admissions rate after waitlist acceptees are taken into account?</p>

<p>Marie, that's great news! Thanks!</p>

<p>Good luck everybody!</p>

<p>So the roll calling starts today.</p>

<p>I got into Stanford but waitlisted at JHU. I'd really rather go to JHU tho :( but honestly, how does that even pan out?</p>

<p>tharp993: It is called Tufts Syndrome.</p>

<p>wow...well that sucks</p>

<p>A lot schools including Chicago, Duke, Rice and Emory have already gotten into action on their waitlists. Apparently, Hopkins is not in a hurry.

<p>they're apparently deciding mid may. so yes they're in no hurry</p>

<p>Does anyone know if there's a deadline for sending in updates?</p>

<p>there's no " hard " deadline but i would get it in as soon as possible</p>
