not sure about GULC but I've heard they waitlist almost everyone at Virginia.

I can't decide if I think WL is the least desirable outcome.
On one side, it doesn't allow you to move on and choose another school. Staying on a WL requires a deposit at a backup school or the backup plan of waiting a year. It delays your decision.
On the other side, a WL feels a little better on the ego, and there's a slight glimmer of hope.
I'm on three WL's and one hold. Don't see how you can think a WL is the least desirable outcome or "Hell". At the very least it means you still have a chance and, in my mind, continues to be preferable to an outright rejection. Not knowing is not the easiest thing to deal with, but it is important to place it in perspective.

So for all practical purposes, out of 9 schools applied, I am WL at 7!
What a great year...
