i know. so sad. :( Go Penn?

Edit: Also, I'm definitely riding this one out. The more I've looked at them the more I've liked Chicago; more even than when I initially applied. Anyone else?

I'll be withdrawing. No sense in riding this one out.


+1 Email came at 5:08 EST. Looks like I'll be a Wolverine in the fall. :D

Does anybody know about chicago and their history of using wait lists? For example, I seem to remember reading somewhere that something like a majority of UCLA admits came off the waitlist. Also, it seems like Virginia waitlists scores of people who all have a very slim chance of getting in.

Waitlisted via e-mail at 5.08pm EST as well. I'm thinking I'm going to stick this one out, write a "Why Chicago"...anyone know if their waitlist is ranked?

Sorry about the waitlists, guys. My numbers are very similar to yours (eerily similar to Crackberry's), so this gives me a pretty good idea what to expect when they get around to giving me a decision.

Chicago had some yield issues last year so they pulled a lot of people of the WL. Don't expect to hear back until about mid-May or beyond.

Yup, WL email. Better than the rejection I was anticipating, but I'm not going to hold my breath to get off - I was pretty borderline. I'll submit some more stuff because it's far better than my current options, but will be realistic. So hey, cool.

Wow, sorry to hear about the waitlists. Was this really a full WL batch?

So much for the Twitter warning...

Chicago waitlisted a good man! (not that they could've pulled you from SLS anyhow)

Apparently, there is a second, non-WL email that asks you to apply to a new merit scholarship going out as well.
