Extreme waitlist ideas

Postby ENGINEERD » Thu Jun 03, 2010 6:35 pm

I am desperately trying to get off the waitlist at my alma mater...

I want more than anything to get accepted. I know there are a lot of threads on this but they all say the same stuff..

either visit and loci
or
bjs and cookies

I have done one of those things and I wont do the other. WHAT ELSE CAN I DO??? I can't just sit here and wait. Has any one done anything extreme/unique/unusual to get off the waitlist???

I am sure this will turn into a bjs and cookies thread but hopefully somebody out there has some good input!!

Send a another LOCI, by email. Be sure to title it something that will get noticed like: "there is a bomb in the building set to go off in 2 mins" then say, just kidding I"m writing to tell you how much I want to go to your school. other good options: clocktower/rifle, pics of dean with underage shemale hookers.

You have honestly done everything you can probably do, and now it is time for the ultimate test of patience. Trust me, I am going through the same thing with the wait list process! I feel your pain...

An attorney I work with told me of an undergrad friend who was on the WL at Columbia who successfully got in via a less than typical tactic. He packed all his stuff into a U-Haul and parked it at the admissions office. He went in and told them that he was moving there with or without a seat in this year's class and would appreciate not having to work another year and reapply. Obviously he did this very politely and had a call two hours later with a seat offer.

I also have a friend that showed up the first day of orientation at a Chicago-area TI school with a seat deposit while still being on the waitlist (also very politely) figuring someone would not show up, he was correct and was offered a spot.

I heard a similar story regarding a school in the T20. I heard this second-hand, but apparently, one of my friends has a friend who was waitlisted at this school. On the first day, he attended all orientation activities. Afterwards, he showed up at the admissions office with a seat deposit and insisted (I assume politely) that he belonged at the school. They let him in.

I have never met said student, but I was highly skeptical. After hearing some of these other stories, however, there might be a grain of truth.

I'd ding him for being a presumptive asshole.

Lol I didn't say it would work in all cases, but it is "extreme."
