I called because I had another question, and again concerned that movement will not occur until after May 2nd.

i guess considering it's right before 5/2, it can't be completely not related right...

Wait how do you all know about the site maintenance? I don’t see anything about it on my portal.
 
Does anyone have any changes on their portal after the maintenance?
 
no changes here, how much maintenance does this portal need hahaha

does it seem possible they’re not even going to admit from the WL this year?

idk if we can take much stock in it but from the outside looking in, the num of ppl in the GroupMe at this pt of the cycle is way more than last yr... currently 200+ ppl in the GroupMe so idk, many prayers needed regardless though :(

I will say tho that at least 20+ members in the groupme are current pitt students and ppl have been slowly leaving, so I hope that provides a little bit of reassurance in this difficult time :')

With Pitt not asking for deposit $ and giving financial packets this late, applicants will almost wait till tomorrow to drop

They overenrolled last year; it’s possible that they’re doing a more conservative WL movement protocol to prevent that from happening again. But yeah it does concern me that they told us to wait for April 15th and then May 2nd. It almost implies that they were anticipating more drops

I think this is a big factor. No real incentive for people to take Pitt of their list until the last day. No money involved to entice early withdraw. Will also be a trickle down effect with people waiting on other waitlists that could drop Pitt for another school after Monday. Definitely a lot still in play.

I will continue to be optimistic since no major WL movement has occurred yet and PTE is officially May 2. Im anticipating news this week, likely May 3/4. Sending good vibes everyone’s way!

So applicants still have time till tomorrow to officially drop schools and hold only 1? Pitt has been crazy quiet….

All’s quiet on the eastern front. Today is the day after May 2 but there’s still shuffling to be had. If it gets to Friday then I’d be spooked. If there’s nothing by next Tuesday then we may have to look at alternatives to the alternate list. But until then my friends it’s nowhere near over.

I know there are meetings this week about the new curriculum, so that may have some impact on WL turnaround...hopefully not too much though

last yr was like that too though right, one wave in march w a majority being pstp WL -> A but still some regular MD reported; then silence after apr 30 even though everyone thought there would be movement but they were already above class size

I am so sad :-( I had a handful of early interviews and was deferred/waitlisted on all of them. It stings when you were confident on your app, got lots of great feedback, and things just don't work out. That's life!

i have a feeling they're prob even "above" class size given how many ppl are in the groupme :/
Feel like I got hit by a truck reading these. Saw this coming and didn't want to believe it. Wow does this hurt.
