It probably was a one-for-one last year, but last year was weird.

edit: scratch that.

Well, all 6 were admitted on the same day, it wasn't from individuals dropping out, it was more about rounding out the class.

I guess I have misconceptions about what the waitlist even IS, and how folks are chosen to be on the waitlist in the first place. Fascinating. Whenever one questions gets answered it leads right into more, I guess that's the nature of the beast when dealing with something as complex as this. Thanks a lot for your answers though!

I was on the wait list last year and it was a very stressful experience but it was made much easier by Pless's frequent and transparent updates by email. Best of luck to all those on the wait list (or still waiting for a decision) hopefully there will be closer to 47 (rather than 6) students admitted from the list this year :-)

Yeah, that was my fault. The email was set to go out just to admitted students and I said "Hey, wouldn't it be nice to send it to everyone?" and the email didn't get changed before it went out. Sorry.

Transparency includes admitting mistakes. My bad.


Dean Pless: am I still banned from saying nice things? If so, well, its Tuesday so that's not fair...and furthermore, I really appreciated the card, even though it made me a little too excited.

This is so true. Illinois was not my first choice, and I wasn't thrilled about living in Champaign, but now I love it...well, except finals. I don't love finals at all.

Only one more to go Nancy.


Me too...just not at UIUC obviously.

Do I get to lose a slipper? Or am I confused in some way? Do I want to lose a slipper?

She said she is the Cinderella of TLS on her profile, and hence the slipper comments, because I said I wanted to be this year's TLS Cinderella.

I really am bad at Disney movie references.

And, yes, I do know/understand that the Cinderella story is more than a Disney movie.

Someone at work yesterday said something about "Donkey" who I guess is a character from Shrek, which I know is produced by Dreamworks and not Disney...but it shows how oblivious I am......since I didn't have a clue who "Donkey" was.

I don't know the reference for "donkey" either, so don't feel bad. I also never really watched Disney movies, but I read Strabo's version and of course the Grim version.

You guys should probably take the non-Illinois convos to the lounge. Not at all trying to be mean, just saying I know I get excited that there may be more useful information posted in this thread when it becomes active, but its just on and on about Disney. I can't imagine I'm the only one :)
