Sounds like people put on the alternate list have received letters in the past actually stating "alternate selection"
Sorry to be reading so much into this!..
Continued best of luck to all of us
When I called the admissions committee, they assured me that we were on the waitlist and not the alternate list. I was very persistent in this matter because I was worried of the same issues. Don't give up hope!
