Was accepted via phone call Monday around 10 am EST. I did not submit a LOCI or supplement my application. As has been stated, UNC pulls applicants from the waitlist that mirror accepted candidates who have declined their offer of admission.
While I understand very well the anxiety/angst associated with the waitlist and admissions in general, I have to say that I find the comment: "Congrats! Stats?" pretty rude. That's what LSN is for.
My stats did not get me in. Comparing your numbers to other people's will not get you in.
Honestly, like the Emory and W&M waitlists, I completely wrote this one off as impossible to be admitted from--to the point that I submitted my second deposit at another school last week! Letting go like that was immensely helpful psychologically. Very pleasantly surprised to be admitted, but it was and is SO unlikely-- it appears they are cherry picking people for "uniqueness." Definitely a crapshoot, IMO.
My sympathies are with those who are desperate to attend, and I wish y'all the best possible outcome. The odds are awful, and I find it ironic that I'm somehow an example that it IS possible to get off this waitlist when I (realistically) assumed there was no hope.
Did you know that you have the same likelihood of winning the lottery whether you buy a ticket or not?
This one's for the optimists:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEAX7MJIRDE
