WL email notified 3 mins ago (interviewed 5/14). Is this quite late for a hope of A?

Did they say when interviews are done? Still haven't heard anything back.

Anyone know the current numbers of people on each of the NM and FL acceptance groups (I believe Discord and/or FB)?

For those waiting on decisions or those who got accepted… did you write a letter of continued interest while waiting? Interviewed 5/20.

I did not write a LOI and got off the waitlist for NM. I interviewed 2/20, waitlisted 3/4, taken off the WL 4/17.

Yeah, I'm confused. Why are they still interviewing if they are only giving out WL spots?
Yea doesn’t make sense why they are still interviewing only to WL people. It already seems like there’s a decent amount of people on the WL. I am assuming that they are expecting a lot of people to withdraw.

I remember reading on Reddit a few days ago someone commented that the NM campus seems to already be full. Yeah I'm sure some will withdraw in the coming month but it feels like they have a big WL already and not enough spots left yet they continued interviewing until very late May. Maybe they are expecting mass withdrawals from the FL campus in particular? Idk.
 
The waitlist movement will continue on a rolling basis as needed until orientation week. I know a few classmates that said they got off the waitlist the week before orientation.

Also a note to those still on the WL, make sure that you are willing to commit to attending if you are accepted, or withdraw your applications if you are planning to reapply for the new application cycle coming up. For AACOMAS, once you submit your application, there won't be a refund. I know a few students that did get off the WL the last minute but barely had time to research/look at the campus/find housemates.

Its much harder to get approved through Sallie Mae than federal loans. Im assuming this has and will be causing people to withdraw from FL campus.
 
Did anyone else just get an email with the subject “Navigating the Burrell Waitlist”?

Is this school still sending out interview invites? Also, do a lot of people make it off the WL here?

It wouldn't make sense to still be sending out interviews when the new application cycle just started. Even if you happen to get one, it wouldn't make sense also to wait 2 more weeks where it'd be close to orientation week anyways. I would focus on applying for the new cycle.
