FAQs for Waitlisted Students

For those of you we waitlisted, we're sorry to ask you to wait still longer for a final decision. I know how frustrating it can be, particularly for those of you who applied to us early action, and have been waiting patiently for what feels like forever.

If you accept a place on our waiting list, we'll consider you for any spaces that are available in the class after we hear back from our admitted students by the May 1 enrollment deadline. In the early part of May, we'll determine how many spaces are available and we'll review the applications of all of the students who accepted a place on the waiting list. The list is not ranked in any way, so it's impossible to predict any student's chances of admission.

We may begin making offers to waitlisted students by the end of May. We may make several rounds of offers, but we promise to have a final decision to all students by the end of June.

A list of frequently-asked questions was included with your letter, and you can view it here. Please read these carefully as it should answer most of your questions.

Please let me know what other questions you have.
