Long time lurker; first time poster. It looks like there is some movement on the UCONN waiting list. It seems there are a few of us waiting to hear. The poster on the main admission results page noted they are likely to decline. If anyone has any insight to share, I would be grateful. Many thanks and good luck to all!

I JUST GOT ACCEPTED TO BOSTON COLLEGE! I'm crying so hard. I'm so thankful and in disbelief, I've been shaking since I got the email. I'll be emailing shortly to take myself off of the UConn waitlist

Just got an email that I'm now at the top of the waitlist at Boston College. Fingers crossed! I'd love to see a five + year dream/goal achieved and never have to go through an admissions cycle again 🙃

Guys!!! I am in at UT-Austin!!!I cannot CANNOT CANNOT believe

I emailed the program I'm waitlisted at last Monday because at the end of February they told me to email them again "later next month" if I still hadn't heard anything. They still haven't responded to the email I sent on Monday. How long do I wait before trying to reach out again? They were super responsive and positive the first time I contacted them to ask about my application status so this is giving me bad vibes.

Were they on Spring Break last week? It was the week before Easter and that's sometimes a popular week for it. I'd say wait until the end of today and then email them again. Or try calling.

Just in case any of those who have been offered funding by Temple Eng. Dept and still have not accepted the offer is reading me, I would really appreciate that you decline the TA as soon as possible if you do not intend to attend. I am in a crossroads at the moment and I might lose the opportunity to start pursuing the PhD next Fall if any of you declines on 15th April or around that date. So please, try to be respectful in this sense (and same to any of those who don't really want to go to an institution but remain undecided. Your rejection might be very valuable for others).

Btw, @cassidyaxxcongrats! I'm so happy for you 😊🌠 Let's hope for the best.

I accepted an offer from the waitlist at University of Delaware, which was one of my top choices from the beginning - so everyone: don't lose hope! I think this will be a big week as far as people making choices, shifting lists, etc. 

I'm taking myself out of consideration at KU - hopefully that adjusts something for someone :)

Also, @cassidyaxxthat's amazing news! I'm sending very positive vibes for you (and I'm currently on the east coast, so they don't need to travel far!)

I'll be emailing shortly to take myself off of the UConn waitlist and I hope this helps someone else out. Thank you all so much for your kind words and support through this whole process. It's especially wonderful because yesterday marked one year since my dad passed away, and I can't help but feel he's looking out for me.
