It gets worse: Cornell has a REAL waitlist called the "summer waitlist" that's made up of reserve people. Last year they didn't make one but the year before they did.
Maybe my favorite part of last year's thread was when the adcomms were telling people to think of the new deferrals as "pre-waitlists." WTF
Still, with all this negativity, it's worth remembering what mbw said about a big chunk of his class being people who were originally held from EA.
