I have interviewed at 9 schools. I have been accepted at 3 schools, waitlisted at 3 schools, and I am still waiting to hear from 3 schools. I am trying to decide whether to just pull the plug on the 3 waitlist schools and withdraw my applications. I am very happy with the schools that accepted me and one of the waitlist schools was definitely an Ivy League reach. I am feeling like I would prefer to go to a school that was enthusiatic about me from day one and not be a school's second choice. On the other hand, perhaps my ego is interfering with clear thinking and I should stay on these waitlists and see how this plays out. Any thoughts? How do waitlist students perform in comparison to regular admits in most schools?
