Just received an offer off the waitlist from Johns Hopkins! Time for the difficult deliberations that some part of me wished would never be necessary. Still, not complaining; I feel unbelievably fortu

I received an email this morning from UNC Chapel Hill to inform me I was admitted off of the waitlist! This is one of my top choices and I could not be more thrilled. It also means I’ll be turning dow

I got in off the waitlist to my program!!! I contacted CUNY first thing this morning to decline my offer, so I hope someone gets some good news today if not tomorrow!

The DGS just let husband know that he’s on the “unofficial waitlist” for Brown. Her email was very kind, and it’s good to finally know!

Ahh no longer in the abyss! Congrats! I'm curious...would movement from Brown make things more complicated for you two?

I've been accepted to Louisville and "top 10" waitlisted for funding, am #4 on the fully-funded waitlist at Oklahoma, and accepted to Tennessee but on the non-ranked waitlist for funding. Does anyone know what the likelihood is of actually coming off of the waitlist? Louisville and Oklahoma but stated that often times, waitlisted candidates were ultimately given funding, but this is a bit stressful.

Wait listed at Tennessee and it’s my #1 choice.

Welcome! It seems like quite a few of us are in the same boat with Tennessee!

I’m #4 on Wayne state’s waitlist for funding and was told I “should remain optimistic.” So, I’m right there with you. Good luck!!

Waitlisted at University of Washington-- Seattle. 

I'd love details if you're willing to share? I still haven't heard anything and with rejections, waitlists, and acceptances on the board idk what to think! When did you hear?

Hi @clinamen! Happy to share. Unlike some of the other waitlists I have received, the email was very brief. It didn't include information about whether or not funding was a possibility, and it didn't provide any information about what my chances were of receiving an offer. I was notified by email on March 1. Hope this helps! They made offers to less than 10% of applicants this year.

Thank you so much! That's odd (and frustrating I would imagine) that they didn't offer much information. Regardless, congrats on the waitlist spot! Seattle is seriously the best city ever!

Waitlisted at UW!!! I'm so thrilled! I definitely thought I'd been rejected as they seemed to notify everyone last week! Going back to Seattle is an absolute dream for me! 

Seattle is a wonderful place! I hope your waitlist turns into even better news (and golly, do you have some tough decisions to make with all that green in your signature line)!

Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you! Did you get any details regarding your place on the waitlist?

Thank you so much, I'm hopeful! This season has been such a delightful surprise -- I feel so ecstatic and so incredibly thankful to have the options I do. Ah I could cry. :)

No, the email didn't offer specifics about my place on the waitlist or how it works -- so I responded asking about it. I'm really hoping to get some info as I'm going into visits this month and they are definitely a top pick for me!

I just declined Louisville (MA with GTA). So here's hoping that translates to positive news!

MA or PhD? I'll likely be declining my MA offer.
