Emma, can you tell us about the WL and what you remember from last cycle? Do people get off of it? The prospects on LSN look really sad tbh... there weren't any WL->Acceptances IIRC. Do you remember anything timing-wise as well - like, when do they start pulling from it (if they do)?
Sorry, I didn't really keep track of that last year. Last year, though, we ended up overenrolled by something like 15 people, so I'd imagine they are trying to be really cautious this year. It could be that even if no one got in off the WL last year (which could be completely wrong) they could admit a bunch this year.
I do know that they want to admit people that really want to be at UChi, so if you are interested I'd definitely recommend sending in a good "Why UChi?" essay.
