Are you still supposed to turn in the financial aid froms even though you are waitlisted?? I know the due date is coming up soon.


I imagine so, since they sent the E-mail saying you could apply for financial aid without being accepted. I guess I am going to do the forms, but I don't know if I am going to send them anything else.

Do you guys think it is the kiss of death if I don't send some letter indicating my continued interest or something, since probably a lot of waitlisters will declare them their first choice? I don't want to be dishonest and say that I will drop what I am doing and go there, because eventually I am going to have to get an apartment elsewhere.

exactly. i'm willing to wait for a while, but i don't want to be committed to them to wait until the end of the summer, i'll just go somewhere else.

The waitlist is ranked so I dont think a LOI will help after you are waitlisted. It may help if you send it immediately after your interview, but I dont think Pitt is a school to give them much weight in either case.
