Are they done with rejections?

Last year they did rejections around the same time waitlist came out so no I think we can see one more round of everything

Are we thinking next tuesday for the next round, or like last week of the month kinda deal?
 
Probably last week of the month since we heard some news this week. They seem pretty committed to the every other week schedule.

OOS waitlist received, interviewed 11/13.
Anyone know how they choose which students to pull from the waitlist since they don’t rank?? Also, any waitlist statistics from previous years? Thanks in advance.

I’m 120% calling bluff on “we don’t rank.” They just don’t want us inundating them with emails and calls.

IS WL interview 11/13

This would make the most sense. I can’t imagine the chaos if they didn’t rank.
 
I heard they select based on the demographics of the person who removed themselves from the class. Similar gpa/mcat, orm/urm, etc

I actually have heard that they try to match the demographics of the WL student that they replace w the accepted student who withdrew their A

Idk how the Supreme Court decision plays into this tho. Maybe they’re doing things differently this year

650 interviews - 215 accepted - maybe 100 post ii Rs? Roughly 330-350
 
Same question for early Nov IIs
Interviewed early November and just got the waitlist .... feeling like an A at this point isn't going to happen. UNC was my #1, I wanted to come home so badly :(

I don’t think this place has much waitlist movement either, correct me if I’m wrong

Yes, this is likely due to the value and quality of education. UNC is probably the #1 choice for most IS applicants (sometimes even over Duke for value). This means many admitted students would likely keep their acceptances, thus, less people would be pulled from the waitlist

Just curious--where is the 650 coming from? Was that officially stated anywhere, or is that IS only? MSAR says there were 712 for 190 spots in 2022. I was guessing it would increase last year and this year. Also, just a guess, but my bet is that the total number of post-II Rs and withdrawals is greater than 100.

I talked to someone who works with admissions that said they interviewed 650-680 this year

Does this mean any additional acceptances will be off the WL?
