Hey guys. I was just waitlisted at Carleton and I would like to remain on the waitlist. I just have a few questions.
1.) There is a space to put any additonal info. on the waitlist reply form. Carleton would likely be my top choice if I recieved enough financial aid. Should i mention this or not? Should I mention anything in this section?
2.) I’m not entirely sure how the waitlist works. When will I hear back? If I don’t get into Carleton I’ll likely go to UW Madison, but I don’t want to not reply to Madison in time. Can I tell Madison I’ll accept and then if I get off the Carleton waitlist can I decide to go there instead?
3.) What is your knowledge of the differences between physics programs at these two schools? I’ve had several internships at UW Madison in chem and physics that I enjoyed so I’d like to continue doing that. Does Carleton offer good research internships?
Sorry for the long post and confusion haha.
