Now that is just terrifying! Did you get an email?


Nope, no email. I randomly decided to check the status checker and saw that my status changed to "application for admission denied" on 5/4.

How many people other than me just frantically checked their status checker?

I checked it. I'm pretty set on where I'm going, but you never know.

Let's all play a game, it's called "What should I be doing right now instead of refreshing my inbox?"
I should be quoting homeowners insurance, or answering emails from people who always seem to be having emergencies... planQ?

I've given up checking my email compulsively while waiting for decisions.

You should try it. It feels great.

Hmm I EDd to UVA back in september and was waitlisted. I never sent in a loci or followed up in any way. I just checked my status checker and i'm still pending. How many rounds of waitlist cuts have their been? Has anyone gotten off the waitlist?

from what i can tell they just started using the WL this week. They cut people on Monday and then again today. I've heard of 1 person getting off (163/3.9--and they're in this forum already i think) but other than that haven't heard of any good news.

From what I heard they got almost all the people they want to go on the first deposit deadline, so the wait list will be used predominantly to make up for attrition (i.e. people who couldn't decide and put down deposits on multiple schools or are on the wait list at some other school and are treating UVA as a backup. I guess the thing to hope for is Columbia or Harvard taking a bunch of people who were viriginia off the wait list.

***EDIT****

additionally we only know what is going on through the smallish world of TLS their might be more goo news admits but they either are not members of TLS or are not inclined to talk about it.

Just to add to what someone said earlier, I was told there would be a very limited number of WL admits upfront (ie, filling in the gaps) and then filling in attrition over the summer. This really isn't surprising news, but it does show they will be admitting at least a small number (if that hasn't already happened). But it does sound like they were pretty close to full.

I wonder what percentage of the wait list has been released so far and whether still being on it offers any indication of our chances.
