I had my interview back in December and I'm pretty sure that's what got me on the alternate list...I was pretty nervous and definitely didn't practice enough to give the panel good answers. I wish I had practiced more since I still haven't received word from other schools...the wait is killing me!
Funny thing though...I called the adcom at MWUCPG and asked what are my chances of getting in. She replied, "Last year we exhausted the alternate list!" It's just weird cuz some other forum members state that they didn't get accepted after being placed on the waitlist last year!
Anways...hope that means good news for us!
So does anybody know if CPG makes decisions per interview session ( kinda like rolling ) or do they wait to makes decisions from an entire month's interview, or how do they do it..anybody know??
it's never too late. it doesn't hurt to try, right? at the most you'll be out $40. but the earlier you apply, though, the better chance you have because of the rolling admissions.
Now I'm kicking myself for it cause I didn't complete my application sooner. Well, I'm hoping to at least get a MCV.
One staff at CPG told me its around 100, I called another day and asked another staff, she refused to give me an answer and said she does not know, I'm thinking YEAH RIGHT! They don't rank wailisted candidates, they just go review your application again. The admissions people do not reveal much, they pretty much say the standard stuff.
honestly they are better off rejecting people after interviews than putting everyone into the alternate list. Obviously if they interview like they say around 400 for 130 spots that makes the alternate list over 250. if in the past they event ook 50, that is 200 people that could be considerably lowered just out of being polite to the applicants instead of giving such false hope to those that they know will not even have a chance at that point.
