Just curious, how did you frame the purpose of your call?
I was just calling to see when they anticipated making more offers and confirm my contact info because I'm traveling soon and I was put through to someone in admissions to ask. After they told me, they asked if I had anything else I wanted them to relay to adcomm on my behalf (which I didn't) but I reiterated my interest. I should also be clear that it could be a coincidence and they had already planned on extending me an offer the next day before I called. I just empathize with those still on WLs and want to help them get through purgatory by offering up my personal experience in the hopes that they'll find it beneficial.
