Thanks. I recently applied to a job and didn't get the position bc I was on a waitlist (they asked at the interview, wackkkk).Schools routinely add students after orientation, Penn State is notorious for doing this. They’ve added people two weeks after orientation in previous years. People already accepted should be grateful they’re in and not speculate others’ chances. The admisions process is not fair or logical, anyone could get in at any time for any reason. The stats of some of the accepted people on here prove that.
I was wondering if the administration was keeping us hanging for nothing. Based on your answer, it's not completely baseless.
I understand the other student's sentiment that it's best to prepare for the worst though.
