How to get off a waitlist?

Recommended Posts

What are some suggestions? Do I follow up with anyone, I don't want to be redundant and harass? I have to make a deposit at another school and register for the Fall term but I want to attend the school I'm wait listed for!

I am in a similar situation would love to hear people's advice.

The advice I have been given is you rescind your offer and lose your deposit.

I think at this point, they are pretty set with positions on the waitlist. Most waitlists will be trimmed by the 15th and there may be one or two candidates left just in case someone who commited backs out before the start of the year. Hopefully we are in for some good news (I am not in speech pathology, but I am waitlisted and am looking for posts that keep me optimistic), but it seems our faiths are in the hands of accepted candidates.

 

All that being said, sending a message to reaffirm your interest will never hurt. Asking for a expedited response might lead them to reject you faster, so I wouldn't recommend that. If it is your dream program, you may just want to pay the deposit and see what happens. If you are accepted later on, then you can assess the risk/rewards of losing your deposit and accepting the other offer. Best of luck!

My gues is there will be a lot of waitlist action on 8/15 and the couple days after as students have made there final decisions and departments get organized.  Good luck!

When I was on the waitlist I emailed the person in charge of admissions and told them it was my top choice and if I got in I would 100% accept my spot. I knew I was high on the waitlist so I’m not sure if the email did anything to help. But it’s a good idea to remind them that you’re still interested
