    You were waitlisted, not denied admission outright. Therefore you still have a chance.

    If space is available, are applications reviewed fully? Or do they just randomly pick students?

    The only thing I can think of for you to do is to email them and exaggerate that if you were accepted, you would attend no matter what. Colleges would rather admit someone who expressed interest, will attend, and pay tuition VS someone who may not even attend if they were accepted. Not totally sure if this would work but it can't hurt!

    ^^^^Don't lie. You should say "if admitted I would attend" only if it is true.

    Thanks. I just sent in a letter telling them I would accept in a heartbeat if admitted(which is true). Hopefully, that helps!
