I know I saw a post in the past about the various schools and what percentage of applicants who get interviews get accepted (if someone could provide a link to that it would be great). Does anyone know the chances of waitlists at the various schools- some must waitlist almost everyone while others reject more and waitlist more cautiously- which would give us a better chance. in particular: hopkins, michigan, george washington, bu- does anyone know much about waitlist /accepted stat?

I dont know where other people got their data from, but in the US News ranking thing, you can get detailed info on schools, and it says how many people are accepted for how many spots (2003 statistics)

Hopkins:
Applied Interviewed Accepted Enrolled
Total: 4,265 658 237 119
In-state: 313 63 24 18
Out-of-state: 3,952 595 213 101



Michigan:
Applied Interviewed Accepted Enrolled
Total: 4,767 672 403 170
In-state: 815 180 100 77
Out-of-state: 3,952 492 303 93


George Washington:
Applied Interviewed Accepted Enrolled
Total: 7,412 1,128 402 167
In-state: 40 10 5 1
Out-of-state: 7,372 1,118 397 166


Boston University:
Applied Interviewed Accepted Enrolled
Total: 8,698 945 367 155
In-state: 556 135 59 23
Out-of-state: 8,142 810 308 132

Damn you html coding or whatever SDN uses for its forums... I spent all that time spacing that crap out to make it more readable, and what does the forum do? It removes all of the "extra" spaces.

I know I started a post on this a few days ago, but lets try again.
USnews doesn't give too much info (if any) on the waitlist movements. Some schools might just send out 400 acceptances and 100 waitlist spots and take none off the waitlist while another could send out 100 acceptances with 400 waitlist spots and take 300 from the waitlist. This would show up on USnews as 400 accepted from both schools.

We should start a thread with any waitlist movement that you know of, maybe the adcoms told you or you have friends that go there. I'll start

School: Downstate
Waitlist Movement: Large % off waitlist
Reliability: Not reliable
Source: Friend who got off the waitlist but didn't attend.

During my interview at BU, Dean Witzburg said that usually by the end of the summer they only have a handful of people left on the waiting list. So according to him, if you're on that list, you have a decent shot.

Anecdotally, this exact thing happened to a friend of mine. She got off the waitlist sometime mid-to-late summer, and currently attends.
