    Hi everyone, I recently received a letter that said I was placed on the alternate list for a school. Can anyone give me a realistic expectation about this? How many alternates are usually chosen? Are the alternates ranked? Any insight into this process would really be great!!!
    Thanks! :)

    Which school? It depends on the specific school.

    You should be able to call the school and find out your rank in the alternate line. Also, find out the percentage of accepted students who turn down the acceptance each year, and you will get an idea of how many will turn down the offer this year if you ask how many were accepted. If the number is more than or equal to your number on the list, you have a good chance. Dont give up hope.
