good luck everyone

i really didn't think they would reject people. guess i was wrong.

maybe that's what the lady who i spoke with yesterday meant when she said "you're file is with the committee and you should have a decision by tuesday". i.e., that there is a decision and it's in the mail lol

Yeah. As the other person (teddy) posted, the class is basically full except for people double deposited etc. However, I think she said the new waitlist has closer to 80 people NOT 200-300.

did your status checker update to a new date, with DECISION instead of COMPLETE?

no, it just changed to complete yesterday. As always they were very polite and helpful when I called. She said there weren't really any spaces left unless someone dropped off. Perhaps someone had luck and got a spot, but it looks like either a ding or more waiting for most people (as expected).

The lady told me the waitlist is not ranked. She stated the letter would give info about the waitlist and interview opportunity. Also, once you receive the letter you could call back to schedule an interview with a director if interested. Good luck!
