After getting waitlisted by a Stats PhD program


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 

I got waitlisted by a T-10 stats PhD program (where I'm extremely interested in the work they do). I got a standard waitlist email saying they believe I'd be a strong match and are placing me on a waitlist (said they'll have an update for me by the first week of April). Should I reach out expressing my continued interest or is it best to just let it be and wait for them to get back to me with a decision? 

I fortunately have other options, so this isn't the be-all and end-all for me, but it is one of my top choices and I would absolutely love to go to there.

It doesn't hurt to reach out and let them know you remain very interested. If it comes down to the end and they're filling the last couple of spots, a student who expressed strong interest and seems highly motivated to come is more likely to get the offer than someone they haven't heard from since they applied.
