Waiting list update #3

Today, we are going to release the waiting list for the School of Engineering.  If you've been following the blog, this isn't much of a surprise, as I wrote that I didn't think we'd be many any offers to engineers back at the beginning of the month.

At this point, we've made some offers to students who applied to the other schools.  We give students a 4-5 days to think about their offers, which is why this process moves slowly.  I often explain this process has having rounds.  Right now, we're waiting for the ball to bounce back to us.

The call volume right now is high and most students/parents seem to have seen this blog already, but want to know what they should do to improve their chances.  The waiting list FAQs that we gave you back at the end of March still apply.  When updated grades are available, send those along.   That's all you should really do now.  Calling or showing up in person is not going to move this process along more quickly. 

I imagine we'll continue to release different portions of the list as the different parts of the class fill up.  We're close to the targets.
