Still waiting. How are rejections handled this late? Slow trickle or big wave?

So quiet....

I am! Although KB said that she doesn't think there'll be much wait list movement at the top anymore, which, if true, means they should start dinging us. At this point, I just want some closure :( .

If "the top" doesn't take waitlisters late in the cycle, why did H bother rejecting many off this waitlist a month ago? I haven't heard of any positive action in the last month.

I was accepted a couple weeks ago and then ended up turning them down. So I'm guessing someone else was accepted/will be accepted soon to take that spot. (For science, 171/3.85/3 years WE.)

Just received an interview. Any thoughts on what that means? How soon after an interview do people typically hear back?

If accepted off the wait list at this point, is there any chance of merit scholarship? Or do you essentially lose any room to negotiate after confirming you'll accept an offer of admission in the "homework."

Have you been living under a rock? H doesn't award merit scholarships.

After the simplest Google search, I'm going to have to say yes.

Considering they are one of only three schools in the country that do not offer merit scholarships, no one could blame you. Here's to hoping for 300k in debt!

CONGRATS! So late in the cycle, later than ever before I think?

As much as I would LOVE to be accepted, I think its time for the ding. I can't imagine any more acceptances this late.

Does anyone have any updated information? I assume the class is full as of now, but do we expect any more waitlist activity before orientation? Also, does anyone know the size of the waitlist as of now and if rejection emails have been sent out recently? Thanks.

OP, can we do a poll to see who is still waiting?
