Maybe in the eyes of UVA, a "small number of candidates" is still at least 50 people...

I received the same e-mail... I hate it when they dangle hope.

Got it too, don't think there's any form of realistic chance though

At this time, we are asking you and small number candidates to remain on our wait list. Based upon past years, we anticipate that we could make another 5-8 offers of admission between now and mid-August. We hope you are able to continue to wait with us.

They didn't have to rub it in!!!

Does everyone remaining on the waitlist already have other T-14 acceptances? I see that most who posted after Dean Richard's last e-mail are in at either GULC, Cornell or Duke (Myself included). Just wondering what the competition's like at this point...

I'm settling for a lowly t15, sorry to say. I really don't think they are actually booting people from the WL.

No word yet from Dean Richard then?

"I will be in touch again on or before Wednesday, August 7."

Active-ish TLSer, new account for anonymity.

Withdrew UVA, so there's at least one spot opening.

Hope one of you get it.

It's surprising to me there hasn't been more movement off the waitlist. You'd (I would anyway) expect more trickle up from the big HLS class fill at the end of May. Any ideas why so little movement? Of course, it is a great place to live and an excellent school so perhaps many just aren't that attracted to CNP for that reason. And there is that 40% instate enrollment requirement which must effectively reduce the movement possibilities.

A few more thoughts:

UVA looks like it filled its class up early - a lot of offers made before March. One possibility is that they over-admitted in anticipation of some deposited students getting off waitlists at higher-ranked schools. Dean Richard said a few months back that they "overbook" scholarship money, expecting that some will decline and go to other schools, so it wouldn't come as a surprise if they did the same thing with seats themselves. Moneywise, it also seems like UVA was particularly generous with median and above-median applicants, so maybe they won more money battles with peer schools than usual.

Anyways, if spots do come open, I hope they go to all you TLSers still riding the WL.

Good thoughts. They seem to play the game very well. I'm content with my current school unless I get an offer off the WL to your school!

I feel like I just ended an unhealthy relationship. A little bittersweet, but it feels good to move on.

Finally got let go after not replying to 6 inquiries about continued interest. Not sure if I should count that as a withdrawal. Good luck everyone. :)

This is how I feel about all my waitlist "releases". Except if UChi dings me, in which case I'll be like, "No, baby, no! Hold me forever."

Boom. Waitlist pun. (Yeah, UVA, regret dinging me now?)
