Thanks, so I probably shouldn't hold my breath for today (still at work), as I am 6-9 hours away.

UPDATE: just got home. No dice.

I've heard W&L is much more likely to take you off the waitlist if you visit / interview. Anyone confirm this?

Depending on whether or not I get any money when that goes out, I will likely be withdrawing.


I will be withdrawing for certain within the next few days. Laziness and clouds are keeping me from doing so.


Congrats nonetheless. Where are you headed instead?

The way Pless described how Illinois used the waitlist probably applies to most schools. Basically, the school looking for what numbers they need to fill the class and mantain the desired medians. So, if you have what they are looking for and you show you're really want to go, it should help a little bit. That being said, it's numbers game, especially off of the waitlist.

Mmmm IDK, Illinois is much more likely to accept those with slightly lower numbers for admission that Washington and Lee is, therefore they don't use their waitlist as much. I think Washington and Lee uses their waitlist a lot because they accept a lot higher numbers and many people choose to go elsewhere. just my two cents. Plus Illinois is a state school, offering in state tuition prices for those in staters to attend luring in people that way. W&L doesn't

I think this varies by school. Some schools like Vandy seem to almost require a visit and a significant demonstration of intent. I believe other schools are very numerically driven and genuine interest is only a weak factor. By reading W&L's website, it seems like they do give a fair amount of primacy to visits/interest.

Still no letter, DR 1/20, in FL. I'm going to continue believing this was an all accept batch, despite the little evidence we have contrary to that theory :)

I applied on the 12th of Jan, and got my status checker info on the 20th of Jan. And it's says Decision Rendered. Isn't that super quick for a proper review process? Or is it a glitch? (I remember reading something about tech. probs with W&L's online status checker in this thread).

Sorry to hear that. OUr stats are basically the same, 164/3.75. and your softs seem to be a lot better than mine...you should get off the waitlist with persistence.

That would seem to be the case.
