Virginia Tech 2022 Waitlist

I was accepted off the waitlist for Electrical Engineering but I rejected the offer today. Hopefully one of you gets the spot! Good Luck!

Awesome! If you don’t mind us asking, at what college will you be pursuing your Engineering Degree?

I think the applicants that got off the waitlist last Wednesday had until today to let them know. I imagine that a new batch will get notified probably tomorrow after 5:00 pm and they will have until next tuesday to accept. I think i read they do it weekly from now on (from posts last year). That makes sense. Fingers crossed for all.

Yes, that is correct. My son has to decide tonight whether to accept the waitlist offer from VT, or stick with his deposit at Minnesota. I have no clue what he is going to do but will find out shortly.

Minnesota is a great school. I grew up there. It’s COLD but people are super nice. Best of luck.

I will be attending the University of Connecticut at Storrs because they gave me a large scholarship, in-state tuition, and the honors college.

I would have attended Virginia Tech but it’s more than double the cost of UCONN. I also got into Northeastern for engineering but that was also way too expensive.

I am still on the waitlist for both NC State and the University of Illinois so if I get into one of those I may go because I loved both of the campuses and programs but Virginia Tech only gave me 5 days to decide and I couldn’t go see the campus or get an admitted tour so I decided to reject it.

I go in off the waitlist on 5/4 and they gave me until 5/10 to make a decision.

Congrats! My daughter is still waiting to hear from VT. As of now, she is committed to NC State. Hope she hears back from VT soon.

Congrats to your daughter! NC State is my #1 choice because both my parents and grandparents went there and they have an amazing program, but they waitlisted me. Hoping I get in!

Anyone know what my chances of getting off the waitlist will be. I have a 4 weighted gpa and a 1400 sat I’m in state and I’m waitlisted for pamplin college of business.

No way to know but you should probably assume you aren’t getting off the waitlist.

VaTech took 3300 off the WL last year. (and way more than that the previous 2 years…). Typically, it’s about 1/3 of the entire incoming class that’s off the WL. looks like they are yanking people off left and right so far this year too. They have a serious yield issue if there’s a 77% acceptance rate yet they still have to pull 1/3 of their freshman class from the WL.

2020 and 2021 are outliers. There were zero pulls in 2019 or 2017. 2018 and 2016 were substantially less than the past 2 years as well. Acceptance rate by college is well below 77%, and overall last year was in the 56% range if memory serves.
