Congrats!


Thanks! I couldn't really understand him super well at times but it almost sounded like I cajoled him into admitting me right there over the phone haha. Anyway, if you got WL'd I would say follow up and really let them know you're interested because it may work in your favor!

I'd say they realized they accidentally waitlisted you, and hurried to correct their mistake.

+1 the last couple of years the U has started throwing huge scholarships at WLers. They identify what #s they need to make their goals once the matriculations start coming in, and they throw tons of money at people to fill in the class.

So, if you're on the waitlist, stay strong!

so jing, you weren't proactive at all for getting off the wait list? Also, how long ago did you find out you were put on the waitlist? Also, for the others who got off the waitlist, when were you guys initially waitlisted?

I submitted my application at 12/07 and got waitlisted at 12/20. I didn't do anything since then because I thought once you got waitlisted even finally got in you have to pay sticker...obviously I was wrong.

Yes....this is such a misconception. If you're a splitter often times you're best offers will come from schools taking you off their waitlist b/c they need your number to reach a median. But if you're a typical candidate then year....sticker is likely.

Congrats! (They seem to have broke their "167 or go fuck yourself" stance).

FYI if you ask and say money is a concern- they will tell you over the phone. The guy who called me was cool as shit- ppl from Minnesota are awesome if anyway hasn't been there. Just as nice as the south without the racism and accent!

That guy was super cool. I thought about asking him about scholarship money but didn't wanna sound tacky or something. Hopefully the letter comes soon.

If it was Nick Wallace, he really is pretty cool. I got a chance to chat with him for a bit last weekend and really got on well with him. Dan Cheng was also very friendly but I didn't get much time to talk with him.
