stanford waitlist :(

Postby fomenting » Thu Apr 15, 2010 7:16 pm

what's the likelihood of getting off a WL? I'm WL at Stanford--I really want to go there, but my other school requires me to withdraw from all waitlists by June 1. What should i do meanwhile?

Did they notify you via mail about the waitlist?

I would also just send a LOCI, updated grades and/or resume, any new and interesting news maybe another LOR.

what about LOCI and maybe additional recommendation? or would it raise a flag like "if she went to the effort of sending all this stuff in, why is the updated transcript missing?"

I'm also trying desperately to get off the waitlist. I'm sending another letter of recommendation, an updated transcript at the end of the year, and I'm including a LOCI with my form saying that I want to keep my spot on the waitlist.
