An e-mail received from Paul Carney yesterday contained the following information which may be of interest to DCOM alternates. There are just over 150 on the waitlist and the class is "nearing capacity". The admissions committee will meet after the Memorial Day weekend to review the alternate list. If there is any room in the class, offers will be made then. Vacancies which occur after that time will be filled as they occur. All accepted students must be checked in at 8am on Aug 1. Those not checked in will lose their seats and DCOM will contact alternates by phone. Those alternates offered a seat at that time must be there within 24 hours. I wish this were more encouraging, but there it is. Use this thread to share information and to commiserate with others in your shoes. You are not alone.
