Waitlist update #4

This update doesn't contain all that much information...the waitlist process continues to unfold. I imagine that's that's good news for some of you.

Just as a reminder, the official offer will post to your SIS account. You'll accept and pay your tuition deposit through SIS. Obviously, it's fun when we call a student and we realize what their decision is immediately. Last week, I made called a student to let her know that we were giving her an offer and her voice started trembling when she replied. Her mother (I assume) started screaming and a dog started barking in the background. As she was hanging up the phone I heard her yell "No way!" I think I was grinning for the rest of the afternoon.

Rest assured, if you need to look over your aid package with your parents, you'll have some time to do that.

Hang in there! At this point, I don't think you should be sending any more updates in the mail since we are apt to see an increase in mail (and processing times) due to final transcripts arriving from matriculated students.


Remember, this blog is geared towards first-year applicants.
