Why was I waitisted at UIUC?

Postby latinolaw » Thu Feb 11, 2010 5:53 pm

3.54/163/URM

This makes no sense to me! Was it because I applied to late (complete in Jan.)? Any ideas?

Its probably because you applied late, I heard Dean Pless say last year that most people on the waitlist were auto admits if they reapplied early the next year.

It's because you're not URM. Only Mex and PR count as URM.

Having origin in Ecuador, Argentina, and Costa Rica does not qualify you for URM status. I hope you knew this going into the cycle. :shock:

Don't worry, Pless waitlisted this girl as well even as a URM.
