    So I emailed the Dean of Admissions today (I interviewed with her) at Temple to basically ask "this late in the summer, do I have a chance at acceptance still?" - she responded saying they have had less movement than expected and that they're actually overbooked right now, but that the waitlist will still be effective until august 7th -

    I think that was a nice way of her saying "you don't have a shot kid" -
    What I'm also wondering is - how can a school be overbooked and go to the waitlist at all??? Dont' you only go tot he list if you're underbooked (ie spots open up?) - That's another reason I think she was just being nice...which I appreciate - but maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if shejust slammed the door shut on me - i don't know - oh well - :( feeling like crap,

    wizeguy :(

    That SUCKS dude! I think you are right--if they have more accepted acceptances than spots, then I don't see why they would go to the waitlist, either. Hang in there. :luck:

    I wouldn't read into these responses too much. They tend to be generic and they would rather have you believe you can't get in and let you in than vice versa.

    I guess...but I don't know...I feel like if I had a chance, she might be more inclined to write something like "while we can't predict movement, with a bit more movement you may have a shot..." but then again, apparition, what you're saying makes sense....

    I just have a very, very tangible feeling that AGAIN, this won't be the year.....and while I know I"ll apply again and again until I get in - you just begin to feel more and more haggard as time goes on without an acceptance :(

    Tehn again, maybe it is just a generic response - I mean maybe its a way of just responding while between the lines saying "i didnd't pick up your file after reading this, and i can't tell you anything exactly on point, so i'll just say this and if you get in, great!" -

    but the more i tell myself things that make me think i still have a chance - the more i think to myself i'm just being DELUSIONAL :(
