So, I was waitlisted at Penn. Who else was?

Are our chances now nonexistent? Does anyone have stats about the waitlist? (How many get on it, how many they take, etc.)

    i was waitlisted as well but to wharton. I think our chances are quite slim, are you going to stay on the waitlist?

    I think I am. My view is that it can't hurt to stay on a waitlist, but I won't count on anything.

    Do you know the acceptance rates for the waitlist at the college (or SEAS if possible)? They said about 4% of applicants are waitlisted, that's about 700 applicants, and I'd say 500 would stay on. Assuming about 50-75 from that accepted, that's still not horrible chances.
