But i have not been wait listed and I feel that my package was strong so I am optimistic!
So did I
I spent some... 6 months on my PS + DS. It was reviewed by a ridiculous number of people, and I know my LORs are at least above average.
I was told I was autoadmit at SLS and would "probably" get into HLS, so I really don't think HYS admissions are quite so predictable for URMS (at least non-AA urms). Either that, or HYS REALLY cares about UG and the rigor of one's major.
But I think you not hearing either way is a good sign at this point, so stay optimistic.
