It might be something funny on the app judging by the mich and minn rejections. Even The Caboose of the T13 WL'd him originally.
NU doesn't seem to YP, and it certainly doesn't do it via rejections.
GULC's WL was the SPWL. I was the first person off the waitlist, even as others are being put on it. Both the note on the acceptance letter and the speed they sent me merit aid—even as others were being told there wasn't any available—indicates that my SPWL was a YP or them offering me the first spot they had available.
The Michigan rejection actually seems to comport with several other rejections rendered this cycle. The UVA WL seems par for the course for people who didn't ED.
With that said, there's not something some much something screwy with the application as there is something screwy that happened with the application. Fox, PM if you want to know more.
