Columbia recently created an extended waitlist going into August. Hopefully， harvard doesn’t do something similar.
FYI， just got notified for admission into the class of 2025. seems pretty late in the game so I was surprised.
Did everyone just get an email from UPenn? I got an email telling me that they’re unable to offer me a place rn and to wait till mid-July for the final decision.
Hey Guys! I got a response from AO saying that there is no timeline for the waitlist decisions. I hope that does not mean they are full
I got waitlisted for Caltech. Since its my #1 choice， I immediately chose to keep in the waitlist and submitted a letter and some supporting documents. The deadline for Regular Decision acceptances to submit their SIR is May 1st (this Friday).For those who were accepted from the waitlist， when were you notified relative to the RD SIR deadline? The school says it can finalize waitlist decisions anytime between May 1st - July 15th， which is a pretty large gap of time but I'm willing to wait for it. I just want to know from previous years when waitlist announcements were most commonly given so I'll be super careful with checking my account. Also， in what form do they message you if you get accepted? Do they email or call or text you?
Did you guys all receive this email:As indicated in my update a few weeks ago， the Class of 2024 is currently fully enrolled.I can’t say with certainty what lies ahead for our wait list. Nevertheless， we remain impressed by your candidacy and are grateful for your continued interest in the College. Thus， we want to keep you in the loop with what’s happening here in Hanover.As you may know， Dartmouth will soon decide how it will approach the fall 2020 term. This may or may not impact our Class of 2024 enrollment. Should places become available after this decision is announced， we will review the candidacies that are active on our wait list. Please note: applicants admitted from the wait list will be offered a place in the Class of 2024， and will not be eligible to postpone their enrollment to the Class of 2025.If you choose to remain active on our wait list， we will update you again by mid-July， or perhaps sooner if we have news to share before then.If you decide that you would like to remove your candidacy from further consideration， please let us know by updating your Wait List Reply Form. And please also accept our best wishes in your future endeavors.
The waitlist has been extended to the end of August - the Q&A pdf on the portal got updated.
Just called the admissions office. People who got rejection letters last week are out of the running. They said it was a good proportion and probably a majority of applicants who were released. People who have not received anything are still in the running for possible admission. They plan to extend the waitlist until the end of July.
I'm an international who got the call yesterday. I sent a short email to my AO last week saying that Notre Dame is my number 1. I think that email definitely helped in getting me in. Best luck to all who are still waiting!
Rice I was FINALLY able to pry out some info from the admissions office today in a phone call. The class of 2024 is more than full. The only reason why the waitlist is being kept open is that in mid-July， there is a deadline for students/families to confirm that they will be matriculating this fall， and not be asking to defer enrollment， plan to enroll somewhere else， etc. The AO I spoke to said that they believe their over-enrollment will provide a sufficient buffer against an above-average level of melt， but are holding onto the WL in case something crazy happens. They encouraged me to re-apply next cycle as a transfer if I remained interested in Rice.
We are still evaluating our class for this fall and are not sure if we will be offering more spaces to students on the waitlist at this time. Once we decide to complete our use of the waitlist， we will notify all the remaining students. But we don’t know when that will be yet.
my AO emailed me saying they are still reviewing all the waitlist ，and they don't have specific timeline .when they are no longer admitting students from waitlist they will receive final notification on their admission portal.
2019 Waitlist stats:
Waitlist offers: 7，535
Waitlist opt-ins: 3，975
Waitlist admits: 1，094
The Ao have been incredibly inconsistent throughout this whole mess. Today they were giving out two different answers in the live chat. One said that all decisions would be out today and another said that the wait-list would be extended till end of July.Neither of them were even correct. The waitlist got extended to mid-July.
I just called admissions. A young girl answered (very sweet). She said today is not the day. She’s being told to tell callers decisions are coming in the “near future”. She didn’t know an exact date though.
I hate to bring the bad news here， but I called the admission office this morning and was told they are done with all the waitlist decisions. So anyone who has not received an admission notice by now should consider themselves not admitted. My son was not admitted， disappointingly.
hey everyone! i talked to the admissions officer the other day， and she said that the admissions process has not officially ended yet， and that we should keep checking our mails (until july) !! that's a bit of good news， I think.
I bet GT is in a similar spot. They're currently full but if enough commits don't show up they will have spots open.
