By activate, do you mean utilize? And I haven't!
Both. I'm assuming they are going to have to activate it very soon because of the "trickle down" effect from better ranked schools pulling off their Waitlists. It's pretty wild that nothing has happened yet, however.
The only people I know who got in off the waitlist didn't get in until the end of July/beginning of August. I had a friend who didn't get in until the second day of orientation.
I definitely wouldn't be surprised if "this" norm continues, but with applications down and higher ranked schools pulling from their Waitlists vigorously, I also wouldn't be surprised for movement sooner rather than later.
