Due to HLS and NYU's historically large waitlist to acceptance %, there's gotta be some good movement on Michigan's WL, right?

I hope so! I don't know wether NYU is pulling from its large waitlist. It seems not that many people are getting UR on their status checkers, so I assume their first WL wave is pretty small.

That's cool. I thought the WL notification they sent me was really classy. It felt like a gentle breakup ("It's not you, it's us ... even though we're amazing ... and so are you, of course!) lol. They're so likable, it's frustrating.

Mind if I ask whether the response reiterated what their FAQ says about them having strong deposit responses?

No, it didn't. Doesn't mean it's no longer true but their response was positive. Basically just "thank you and be in touch" but much nicer :)

Would either of you mind PMing or posting stats? Just wondering about the stats they are going for. Best of luck with the rest of your cycles!

I was a longshot - URM 160/3.47 so not a huge surprise but getting WL'd did make me a little hopeful!

I think it is just they don't need any more URMs for this cycle. They are probably looking for something else, like high GPAs.

But still no movement whatsoever. I have really counted Michigan as "dead" in my mind.

I feel like we will have some movement before the long weekend. Could just be wishful thinking though lol

The Waitlist FAQ page just updated:

Orientation for our summer-start cohort will take place on May 30, 2017. After this writing the summer section is fully enrolled, and we do not expect any last-minute changes. We also have a full enrollment for our fall start, but are seeing a lot of waitlist action at many of our peer schools. We will continue to update this page with any developments.

Good find! UVA e-mail saying more or less the same thing just went out this morning - the two schools seem to be really in sync this cycle. :?

I don't understand why NYU could be having a lot of waitlist movement, so are NU (from today), Cornell and Duke. But the middle tier is exempt? So is NYU intentionally taking from the bottom of the T13?

If they had a high yield initially, UVA and Mich will have less WL activity regardless of how many get pulled away by the T6. NYU is not intentionally taking students who have deposited at certain schools (???). It's just that UVA and Mich seem to have had strong initial yields and have fuller classes. So if they lose a handful of depositors they won't be as WL-trigger-happy as schools with less full classes.

Also, I'm sure there are many people who got into NYU and decided to go with UVA/Michigan for financial reasons, so I could see many people getting off the waitlist at NYU and turning it down because of no merit aid or just pulling themselves off the waitlist entirely if they already had money at UVA/Mich.
