Conventional wisdom from this and last years thread is to be above a median.
How did you find out you were waitlisted? Email?
Yes, I received an email earlier this evening. I am not above either median, unfortunately. Do you think it is still worthwhile to send a LOCI or am I lost cause?
I do have significant work experience, strong letters of recommendation, strong 'overcoming adversity' personal statement... I think it's these things that have carried me this far. But, from what your saying, it sounds like these won't be enough to get me off of the waitlist?
Don't take my word as gospel! I'm just looking at it from a numbers perspective... if Minnesota still interests you, certainly send a LOCI
