Just got an e-mail placing me on the "summer waitlist" - was placed on reserve on 04/26. Anyone have any ideas as to what the difference may be? Here's the content of the e-mail:
"...We are writing to let you know that we have placed your name on our summer waiting list. This list consists of a group of strong candidates for whom there currently is no space available in our entering class. Openings can occur at any time during the summer, including late August. Because of the late date, deferments of admission will not be available to people admitted from the waiting list. If you would like to continue to be considered for admission, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
as soon as possible with your current address, phone number and e-mail address throughout the summer.
You also should send us any additional information, such as spring semester grades and additional faculty or employer recommendations that you think would be helpful to the Committee in arriving at a favorable decision in your case. If at any time you are unavailable to respond to an offer of admission, be sure that someone at your address is authorized to act for you by sending us a $700 registration deposit..."
