I would appreciate any help that anyone can give. I am currently waitlisted and would love to attend. I have shared my desire to attend with Dean Kuchar. I know that some schools don't have a seat deposit amount or date and most schools do. My question is: Does BYU have dates for first and second seat deposits? If so, would any one be willing to share those dates with me? I would just like to see, hopefully, when I may hear back from them. Also, does anyone have any idea if they are heavily using the waitlist this year? Also, anything else that I could do to help my chances?
I know this is a lot of information -- but I would love to attend at BYU.
EDIT: Thank you.
There is only one seat deposit and it was due April 15. There are about 74 students added to the admitted students Facebook group, and I assume there are those without a Facebook that have been admitted.
I am not sure to what extent they are taking students off the waitlist but I know there have been a couple already. The waitlist process at BYU takes a long time because it isn't ranked. It's a pool, and when a spot opens they will review everyone on the waitlist, drop some, admit however many spots they have, and keep others waitlisted. I was on the waitlist until the day before classes started and then I got a call offering deferred admission. I know of a couple people who got a call the day before telling them to get on a plane and be there. Pay a deposit at your second choice and wait it out. Sorry it has been such a slow process. :/ Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
