I can feel the waitlists coming...

Postby BruinsFan » Thu Feb 04, 2010 5:03 pm

I applied to 11 schools... on the accept/hold/waitlist/deny spectrum I'm a 4/1/0/0, but I applied end of Nov. and I KNOW THE WAITLISTS ARE COMING!

The idea that I probably will not end up attending the school I put my deposit down in April is kind of terrifying and frustrating.

Anyone else in the same boat?

14 schools, 4 accepts, 3 holds, 1 grade request, and a lot of silence. I'm trying to keep optimistic though.

I am awash in waitlists. I applied pretty early in the cycle and I assume pretty much any school I haven't heard back from is waitlisting me.

2 waitlists, 1 hold, 1 deferred to RD. I secretly hoped this would be over by April, but it looks like I won't know really until maybe June or July (Yikes!)

15 schools. 4 accepts (way down the rankings). 3 WLs. No dings.

With the exception of 3 schools far out of my reach, I'm in the neighborhood of all the other schools' medians. It will be a long 4-5 months.

I can't take it anymore. This week I've started driving home from work in the middle of the day just to check the mail, sigh and turn right back around.

pretty sure all pending decisions are waitlists for me - but I really just wanted to say GO BRUINS TONIGHT!

I can feel it too.

1 accept (GMU), 1 waitlist (Wake), 8 MIA

My Wake Forest waitlist today makes me feel like GMU was a fluke, and that the rest of my cycle will go poorly. And I thought waiting for my LSAT score was an emotional roller coaster...

Waiting for the LSAT was a pain, but at least you had a set date for that. I hate waiting, esp. because the two schools i am most anxious to hear from still have not responded, it is killing me I think I will be waitlisted (I have 6 acceptances, 2 WLs and 1 reject)

The last 8 hours waiting for the LSAT were far worse than any wait for a decision, or mabye I've grown use to the feeling.

I feel your pain...I'm already on the dreaded purgatory of waitlists...the hold list! It's not a waitlist, but its not a denial, but its certainly not an acceptance...UGGGHHH!!!

I'm in the same boat. I have 9 acceptances (many of which are way down the rankings), 2 WL's (1 of which is to BC which was one of my top choices), 1 grade request, and 4 silences. I'm thinking that the silences are either rejects or WL's.

The waitlists finally showed up, along with a rejection. I blame this thread.

I don't like waitlists either, but why is this "terrifying"?

1 I was expecting, still really hopeful about

Ughhhh. I know some WLs and dings are headed my way, but honestly it will be kind of a relief to have SOME information.

Also up to 3, though I think at least one more is coming my way. Long summer, indeed.

I think I may escape the cycle without finding myself on a waitlist.

(Expecting 1 more acceptance and one more rejection, which would bring my record to 6-2. Not bad, but I wasn't as ambitious with my applications as I maybe should have been.)

Finally got an admit today. From my safety school, but the real bummer... *no money*... I'm super pissed, people with scores lower than me on LSN have gotten half-rides...
