It feels awkward to inwardly root for people to withdraw, since I like the school. But I also want to get in so bad. I cannot wait another year.
Prospects for the Illinois waitlist are grim for everyone (they haven't taken a single person yet), so it's either WUSTL or I make my plans to move to Madison in a month. But Wisconsin's OCI has been hit pretty hard ITE.
i gather that they would need 2 weeks or so to sort out the 2nd deposits?
That probably depends. They could probably have a lot figured out by the end of today. I wouldn't be surprised to see people start getting decisions by the end of the week. It only takes a couple minutes to re-determine your class medians and percentiles, and track who's sent stuff in or not.
On the other hand, if the numbers are close, and pretty much everyone who put down the first deposit put down the second, they may wait a while. Remember, the double deposit report comes out in two weeks as well (people who are deposited at more than one school). They will then force these people to make a decision.
