WARNGING: When filling out the waitlist survey in your email make sure you complete it the VERY FIRST TIME you open it. If you do not, they will not get it.
I called about the waitlist to decision mistake, and it was just that. They said they never got my waitlist acceptance survey so they went ahead and withdrew my application. If this happened to you (ami) call them and let them know that you did fill out the survey and want to be considered on the waitlist. It seems that if you open the survey twice they do not get the results. If you did not fill out the survey and wanted to withdraw, then this waitlist offer extended to decision status checker reflects that withdrawal.
