Don't despair.... people get off the waitlist (in fact, didn't someone here get off the R1 waitlist already?)

I know, but it leaves me hanging, I was kind of hoping for a clean yes (and after that didn't appear likely) a clean no. While it gives me a slight hope still, it doesn't let me focus on getting ready to go to Michigan. I wonder when they'll make R2 waitlist decisions. Probably after my Michigan deposit.

Congrats to all the admits, and my condolences to those who got dinged. Man R2 was tough comparatively.

i agree. it appears as though there were a ton of waitlists on the bw forums. since only a fraction of people post, i assume there were a sizeable number of total waitlists. it's hard to say about chicago since a lot of the admits will end up going to H S W and other schools, but clearly it does not look good for waitlisters considering that app volume is up this year. personally, i am going to write it off as a ding and focus on the other 3 schools i am waiting on.

the waitlist rocked my confidence since this was my best app. also, it's hard to get really excited about decisions coming from stanford, wharton and columbia. i guess there is no correlation between results at different schools, but it's hard to imagine getting an admit at stanford or wharton after a ding at chicago. the nightmare of waiting continues.

congrats Helg, other admits and all the waitlisted folks. WL is better than a ding.
So who is in for R1 later this year ? I suggest analyzing each others essays and finding tons of potential improvement for ding therapy.
