same here; invite for a place on the waitlist. whoo hoo!
Yeah, they sent out another batch on March 8th.

Does anyone know how much movement MCW has on their waitlist? I'd like to interview there and realize that it's for a waitlist spot, but if they don't move a lot...

On interview day, Mike Istwan (Director) said that they have had a varying amount of movement from the waitlist each year. Last year 14 people were taken off the waitlist, the year before 96, the year before 12. So it's a toss up.

Yeah, but I'm more curious how many people are on these waitlists. And do you know your ranking or approximation?

Ah, 200 people are on the waitlist. You find out the ranking come early May. They tell you which quartile you are in.

I've read on SDN that after interview, the waitlist is ranked soley on interview performance. Can anyone confirm that this is factual information and not just a SDN rumor?

I was under the impression that it was complete file. But now, I'd like to know as well. Anyone have good info on this?
