If I had to guess what went wrong for me, I would guess that one person or some people in the admissions office just didn't like my personal statement. I put a lot of effort into my statement, but at the end of the day, those things are subjective. I would also guess that my alumni interviewer didn't write that positively about me. For reference, I've had success with all of the other schools I've interviewed with so far this cycle, but I think alumni interviews in general can be pretty hit-or-miss. The particular alum I spoke with seemed like he either didn't take me or the interview process or both seriously. I didn't think it was that bad, and he told me at the end that he would say that I would be a good addition to the incoming class, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was just saying that.
^ This type of nonsense is probably why you got waitlisted
What do you mean by nonsense?
The overanalyzing, useless speculation nonsense.
Good explanation. Thanks!
