I got double-secret-priority waitlisted. But don't tell anyone.



j/k, I'm still waiting.

You're not alone-- I was priority waitlisted last night as well.


I just got regular waitlisted! so not everyone gets priority waitlisted! :)

Also priority waitlisted here. Pretty sure it's different than the other waitlists since it included an invite to admitted students day.

So what does it mean for people that are on the regular WL and not the priority WL?

I was cautiously excited but now I feel pessimistic about getting in.

Perhaps the priority list is a very short list. Again wishful thinking, but still a possibility

Can someone post the language that indicates priority waitlist? I'm assuming it's clear as day, but just want to make certain I'm not part of this special waitlist :?

I don't think I read about a priority WL happening last year on here. This seems kind of like the peer school that came to me last year and said, "you are waitlisted - why do you want to go here....ok if you still are sure you would consider going here call us at the end of the week."

People are being told they're on the priority waitlist. Unless they're messin' with us.

ED: Which I doubt.

Hello - this is Ethan Rosenzweig, the dean of Admission and Financial Aid. Just a quick update on this Friday afternoon.

Admission Decisions: All but a very small group of admission decisions have been communicated. Unfortunately, for this last group, the system controlling my email account and document files has malfunctioned. I never thought of myself as unlikely, but for some reason, my computer decided not to cooperate.

If we cannot resolve the situation by the end of business today, I will send this last group decisions from my personal email account this weekend.

If you have not received your decision by Monday, please let me know, and we will assist to re-send the decision.

Thanks!

There seems to be two different waitlist pools. The gist of the priority waitlist email states "I would sincerely appreciate your joining our priority waitlist that we offer to a very small, select group of applicants. This will hopefully allow us a chance to admit you with the maximum scholarship possible shortly after our deposit deadline of April 19."

I think there's only one waitlist, unless someone actually has one that says "priority". Otherwise, I think everyone got a WL letter with language about April 19 deposits deadline, "very select", available scholarships after the deposit deadline, and $250 deposit refund.

Anybody receive anything different?

Yeah mine says the "very select" thing also. Does anyone's actually say "priority"? I'm under the impression that there's only one waitlist.

I have everything above besides the phrase "very select." No idea if that means I'm on a lower-tiered wait list or if the language just changed slightly in the process of sending out the emails.

Yes, mine does say priority, as I posted above in quotes. I have confirmed with another student that they received the "priority" one as well.

Yep... no mention of "priority" or "maximum scholarship" in my email. Rather disappointing.
