    As far as I know, the UW does not disclose the size of the waitlist or how many people come off of it.

    My DD is now a sophomore Badger. She was in your shoes two years ago and came off the waitlist in early May 2017. We had to accept at a different college and pay deposits which we lost when we found out she was finally accepted. I'm telling you this so you know there is hope! Good luck to everyone.

    I don't know the size of the wait-list but I know last year about 28% of wait-listed students were accepted. I am also on the wait list.

    I was deferred early action and sent in a letter of continued interest. Would it help to send another after having been waitlisted?

    Still on the waitlist -- I'm confused why admissions said that they're releasing decisions after may 1st if apparently someone has heard back already.

    I'm guessing that once someone denies their admission offer, they take someone off the waitlist. Lots of people just let their offer sit until the deadline, May 1st, and then their admission is automatically denied. This is when lots of people get off the waitlist.

    @bleedorangebaby my friend applied with that major and is on the waitlist! was your friend’s application strong overall? good essays, strong classes, lots of good activities, etc? i got off for political science! but i imagine they review ours differently because of different majors.
