Birdlaw thinks they're really gonna pull from it this year. I hope there's a stack of admits they have waiting for whenever their first wl>admit date is. i also hope killingly, blump, and I are at the top of that stack
I still think this, but I'm not as confident as I used to be. One reason is that one of our ASWs had the most attendance of any ASW we've ever had, but that's not necessarily indicative. Also, there are actually more straight accepts so far this cycle than last cycle on LSN. But there are also more WLs. And fewer total applications. Which in total is just a weird dynamic. Probably some mix of LSN growing in use (particularly for stronger applicants) and an increased use of the WL.
Also, last year there were like 13 reported WL/Accepts and 4 reported WL/Rejects. Granted a lot of people don't report whether or not they get rejected after being waitlisted, but there were ~45 that didn't report that they were accepted, rejected, or withdrew.
Basically I feel like you guys are in okay shape. I'm definitely pulling for you guys (obviously I'm still checking up on this thread to look for movement).
