I thought they were going to release a bunch of people off the waitlist?

Did you just pull that out of your ass or did you actually hear that somewhere? because I never heard anything about them doing that.

I think he's referring to last week's email that said they would pull a lot "late [this] week."

They may have, and it could just be that they just pulled a bunch of people who don't really post much.

Oh by "release off the waitlist" par12 meant admit people off the waitlist? Who knows. It was a pretty vague statement.

They could have admitted a hand full of people today who don't post here, but who knows if they will accept. Either way, those of us still waiting definitely still have a chance, if not later today then later in the summer. USC seems to use their waitlist a lot.

Edit: For example, just from searching their posts I know that the person who started this thread got in off the USC and UCLA waitlists and placed a deposit at UCLA so we shall see.

Why you were ever on the waitlist at USC is beyond me. Have fun at Columbia!

I'll have to see about the money. They were pretty clear about not expecting any, but I'll ask anyway.

I mean I don't even want to leave at all if I had a sensible option to do so.

Gotcha. Well good luck negotiating with them. With your numbers I don't know why you were waitlisted in the first place.

Just got in today! They said that keeping in touch and the video were really helpful in decision making.

Did you sing Good Vibrations on an air guitar too? That seems to be their secret admit password this year.

From the look of it USC is just number whoring (which doesn't surprise me). Looks like I'm fucked.

I wonder if there is any use visiting the school this week to try to put in a good word? From last year's thread there still seemed to be a fair number of waitlist-acceptances right up until early-August.

I made an appointment to visit the school this week. I doubt everyone who got a call on friday will end up attending...
