Not as bad as some, but a decent amount at least. For those interested, I was accepted with $$$ to NU and deposited there. I've withdrawn from all WLs except HLS. Only they could sway me from NU's offer at this point.
This is an extremely preftigious waitlist... list. Bet you get one of UVA/Mich/Duke, at least, and NU with $$$ is pretty rad.
I actually withdrew from all the wait lists except Harvard once I got NU's offer. My wife and I just didn't see how any offer from the remaining schools apart from HLS could compete with what we were looking for. Stanford is incredible, but we weren't thrilled with going West Coast and the WL there gave me an excuse to back out.
Miraculously, I got accepted to HLS off the WL today. So now it's down to NU with $150k or HLS with an undetermined amount of need-based aid (which should be reasonable as I have two children and a wife with an income that, per HLS, won't effect my assessed contribution when salary-level and family allowances are taken into account).
