No one has heard anything, but we may soon. Presumably, a good chunk of people will be asking for their deposits back in the next day or so in order to get their refund.
Right now, the class is over-enrolled, and they are over-committed scholarship-wise. Nobody knows how over-enrolled they are right now, though, unless you work in the WUSTL admissions office. It may take only a handful of withdrawls to open up some spots, or it may take dozens.
There's been a steady stream of withdrawls on LSN over the last 3 weeks or so, but the school over-admitted in expectation of this.
Also, there's quite a few people on here that are planning on forgoing the $200 and hanging on to their seat until they hear from other schools' waitlists, or until they hear about scholarship money from elsewhere. We may not hear until after June 1.
