I'm seeing the same thing. The text of my previous letter is now gone and replaced with what you posted. The letter is still dated March 21st.

Mine says the same thing. It looks like we're on the summer waitlist. At least we didn't have to wait until tomorrow to get the news.

I also have the summer waitlist letter showing up, but it is dated March 21. I assume this means I wa waitlisted again.

Meaning the language in your waitlist letter didn't change?

I was in the process of posting that I have the same "summer waitlist" message on my account when admissions called me to tell me that I'm in.

So I think it may be some type of mistake, and doesn't mean that you've been re-waitlisted just yet.

Yeah mine also changed back. Just when I had resigned myself to the summer waitlist, they pull the letter and renew the hope. This is especially cruel if I end up re-waitlisted tomorrow.

I'm based in NYC and did the following:
-very plain video (me talking in front of a camera for 90 seconds, divided into three sections on why Booth is right for me)
-GLOWING recommendation letter from a previous supervisor (honestly makes me wonder why I didn't use them as my primary rec for Booth)
-an update letter I cobbled together highlighting my recent achievements (I freaked out when I discovered an egregious typo in the very last sentence, but it worked out!)

There are definitely more calls coming. I thought of my GMAT Club peeps, so I asked. He said they weren't very fair into the calls.
