So I put $ down at my other two top choices as I still haven't heard from BYU.
I was waitlisted today. Not sure how I feel about that. I mean good since it is not a flat out rejection but its not really an acceptance either!
Anyone else waitlisted today? How long will we have to wait? They said to let them know by the 13th -- so I emailed them as soon as I read their email. I was confused that they said not to send in anything additional (like no LOCI, etc....)
Do you think the WL is a "one-time" decision? Like they don't actually keep adding to it at this point do they? Also, how many people do you think are on it? Do they typically take many people off of the list? When would I have a final decision by?
Any way, if any of you are waitlisted as well and want to PM me -- feel free!
By the way, congrats to those that got accepted today!
BYU has been known to keep people on the waitlist until the day before classes. This happened to a friend of mine who is currently a 3L, and it happened to me last year (though I deferred admission to this term). However, that is the exception, not the rule. The waitlist is not ranked. When a spot opens up, they will review all the applications in the waitlist pool and take an applicant. I believe the application is closed, so likely the waitlist will not grow. Usually, about three people are taken off the waitlist, from what I remember being told last year. I believe there are usually 80-100 people on the WL. These are things I remembered from last year.
Waiting to get into BYU can be a long process...I would recommend putting a deposit down and waiting it out. If you get accepted off the waitlist late in the process, I don't believe they have you pay a seat deposit (at least, my 3L friend didn't have to).
The part about not sending anything else means they will only review your application as is...and will not take into consideration any transcript or GPA changes, ect (to be fair to people who have been rejected that didn't have the time to raise their GPA and what not).
Hope this helps! Best of luck to you!
