Yes, probably about 3-4 months time! (Hope you don't get rejected though.)

To better get our questions answered:

ANYONE who has received a "waitlist" in the past week, did it say waitlist or reserve?

People with no answer aren't on a waitlist, just no answer yet. But its getting sickenly annoying. I paid for my application you fuckwads. Give me an answer now.

I think they will make a waitlist group after they review the reserve people at the end of May. At least that's what I got out of the reserve letter (just recently got it).

But if I'm waitlisted, why not send me a message that says, hey, GermX, you've been waitlisted. Maybe I'm basically accepted but they want a seat to open up first? Who the fuck knows with this psychotically shitty admissions committee. They should all kill themselves.

I'm not sure if that'll expedite the process.

I logged on to bitch about how long this is taking and this was the first post I saw today. Between that and Germx's LOCI, I know I've come to the right place.

Got put on "reserve" by letter today. Oh well. The only reason I hadn't sent a withdrawal was to see if I got enough money to sway me from my other options or to use as leverage.

ppl who heard lately; did you guys call/email about your apps?

I feel like there's no rhyme or reason about who they decide on otherwise (i.e. complete dates and numbers are all over the place).

is it possible for them to give no answer before other deposit deadlines?

yes because some schools had deposit deadlines already (e.g. 4/15). Cornell's own was 4/16.

Not in my opinion.
